I have two questions, all relating to the preview images for the top section of a category page, and the preview for the "Read More" section on the bottom of any page.
- How come vector images (SVG files) do not show up as preview images? Vectors show up in the "New photos" section and in galleries. I tend to do most of my work in vector, and it would be nice to seem them in previews.
- I believe that the first (non-vector image [see above]) to be placed in a page automatically becomes the preview image. But based on several page standers (at least on the wikis I use), the first image I post is not usually a good preview one. Is there a way I can make another picture within the same page the preview?
- Hi NuclearVaccum -- thanks for your patience. I checked with our dev team, and yes, this is a know bug that is on our list to fix eventually: our system doesn't play as well with SVG files as we'd like it to. We recommend you use a better-supported file format for your important content images. And unfortunately, no, there isn't a way to select the image that will appear for Read More and Category icons; however, if you're not using SVG, you'll generally find that it does a better job of selecting images that you place at the top of the page.
Thank you so much for getting back. I do hope you will fix this "bug" soon, as I am part of a site which uses vector files more (an there is no need to abandon it). As for the selection image, I can understand. However, I did think of a way how this could be possible. I put a file on the very top of the page, making it 1px. It seems to be doing the trick, and it is small enough not to be noticed. But I will admit, it isn't the ideal answer I wanted. Either way, thank you again. --NuclearVacuum (Talk) 16:33, July 3, 2012 (UTC)
