Hello, I have a question about the newspaper fashion news leaflets that stores use to give out in the 50's on different pattern companies. Is there a place to put a whole pdf file of it or do you want the specific patterns broken out along with their descriptions? Thanks
For the individual patterns listed, we usually link to them internally (if they already exist(, or put up individual pages for the ones that are not there yet, and link those back to the catalog or magazine.
Hello, when I'm creating a page can I use the image caption? I just tried adding to the page after uploading the photo, but it only allows me to put it at the top of the photo, which I know is the wrong placement. Sorry for all the extra work. It's extremely frustrating for me, but I want to add these patterns to your database.
The image caption is not the right place for the description, but I am editing new listings anyway to add categories. I don't mind. Love the new additions...
Are you editing in VisualEditor (default for new users)? I never use it, and find it difficult to work with (ironic, since it was supposed to make things easier for users). You can switch to the Classic version in your preferences. Maybe that would make things easier for you as well.
If you are ever in edit mode on a pattern page, insert your cursor at the point on the page where you want to upload the picture, and click on the Photo button at the right-hand menu - you will be shown recent uploads. All this is in Classic editor, though.
I assume you mean a picture of the back of the envelope? Yes, you can add it, but it should go beneath the description and sort of small in format (people can see the bigger version by ckling on it), so it does not clutter the layout.
As for adding someone else's collection, as long as you have permission to use their pictures (or create your own pictures from their collection), there should be no issue.
Welcome to the wiki. When entering a new page, please make sure to follow wiki naming conventions. In this case, when a pattern already axists with that manufacturer and pattern number, we add a space after the number and the next letter in the alphabet starting with A. I renamed the Vogue 8914 pattern you entered to reflect the correct name as Vogue 8914 A
Hello Tarna, thank you for the help. As you might have guessed I'm very new to this, but wanted to add to your collection. Please feel free to edit whatever does not look right. All suggestions from you are very welcome.
I don't know how to do the category area so I leave that blank.....
Can you please link my page Advance 6559 to page Advance 6557 in your files.
Another question, I have a pattern that is already in your files, it's in pink color graphics, Advance 4054. My copy is in blue graphics. Same design, but probably released in a different year. Do you want that added to your files?
