Template documentation

This template creates a slideshow gallery with a randomised order – i.e. it changes when the page is purged.


As many images and captions as desired may be specified, in the following format:

{{Random slideshow 
| First image  | first caption
| second image | second caption
| third image  | third caption

Credits (e.g. "Photograph: Example") may be specified, using the following format

{{Random slideshow 
| First image  | first caption | credit1=
| second image | second caption | credit2=
| third image  | third caption | credit3=


|1=, |3=, |5=, ... (or equivalent positional parameters)
File name. The "File:" prefix is optional.
|2=, |4=, |6=, ... (or equivalent positional parameters)
Caption for the file.
|credit1=, |credit2=, |credit3=, ...
Credits for the file. Optional.
Maximum width for all images; default is 100% (intended for use inside portal components)
Can be specified as a % (e.g. 75%), or in ems (e.g. 30em), or in px (e.g. 200px)
If a unit is not specified, px is assumed (i.e. 350 is equivalent to 350px)
Set to no or false to turn off the randomisation.
