Help: Media

You can upload media such as images, audio or video to your wiki in form of media hyphae. The word media is short for multimedia. Media hyphae are not just media files, they can also have a description in Mycomarkup.

Supported media types

You can upload any media file, but only those listed below will be displayed on the wiki. You can download unsupported medias, though.

  • Images: jpg, gif, png, webp, svg, ico

  • Video: ogg, webm, mp4

  • Audio: ogg, webm, mp3

How to upload media?

For non-existent hyphae, upload a file in the Upload media section.

For textual hyphae and already uploaded media hyphae, click the Manage media link on the bottom and upload a new media file.

Media management

Every hypha has the Manage media section. Click it to see what is out there.

You can upload a new file, you can remove the media and see some file stats (size and type).

On naming media hyphae

The hypha name should not just copy the file name. If you are uploading a photo of a rose, do not call it rose.jpg, no. Call it photo of rose or rose photo or whatever. You rarely need to think of file extensions when using Mycorrhiza Wiki.

This is not a rule, of course, just a convention.

What to put in the description?

  • A textual description or representation of the picture.

  • A transcript of the song.

  • An analysis of the media.

  • Some meta data.

  • Things above combined.

The media should not be an illustration of the description. In this case it is better to put it into a subhypha and embed it into the markup.
