Markdown images problem

Solved! Go to Solution.

I have a problem referencing a image in my wiki using mardown...

Here is my repo:



Welcome to the MyBilliards wiki!

La meva primera imatge

Es veu:

![Billiards JPG](../master/American(1024x585).jpg)


So i have an image in my root folder, if i get the url link in the first call, it works... But id prefer to work with local paths

like in the second call... Second call dont work and i have tried lots ( none of them works)..

![Billiards JPG](American(1024x585).jpg)

![Billiards JPG](/American(1024x585).jpg)

![Billiards JPG](/blob/master/American(1024x585).jpg)


I also would like to put all the images in a folder called documentImages and get all the images from it, just to mainteance and have some order.

Re: Markdown images problem

It worked

But its complicated as you can wrote a markdown document in local using ( image.jpg, local urls) and when you work/upload the documents to the wiki you have to update all the links using:



If its not a bug, could be considered as a feature request, to use the same url in local and remote repos

Instead of:


 ( username, repo and blob, master can be added by default in images urls)

Re: Markdown images problem

Could you try


? It should work as well an doesn’t require a username/repo in the URL.

Re: Markdown images problem

This one doesnt work for me, but still think that to be in the same line and avoid some extra-work, the natural way is writing the same code locally than the wiki....

So ( images/American.jpg) should work and Github add USERNAME, REPO, blob, master, whatever is needed.... ( think of an assignment with 100 images or more....) It seems not very difficult to implement this. Just a thought and a request.

Thank for your work and help
