It's not your fault. I was having the darndest time trying to get the picture in the infobox and not outside it (or having nothing appear at all). My brain was putting up a roadblock for awhile. And now I'll stop spamming this thread for awhile.

Thank you, and yes it does!

One more: If there are multiple patterns on the same post, but of different pictures, is it one page for each picture or one page for the post?

One other note on total number of stitches; if every square of a pattern is stitched, then yes it is just width x height. If the background isn't stitched though, it may be less. If there's a KG-chart file, it will tell you the number of stitches. The following picture has the key info circled:

chart.jpg
chart.jpg (50.81 KiB) Viewed 8683 times

Notice 90 x 25 would be 2,250, but the count is only 807 because the background isn't stitched.

If there isn't a kg chart file and I can tell the background isn't stitched, I usually just leave that line blank.

I have done both; if the original post has two patterns of different pictures, I usually split them. If there are two patterns that clearly belong together though, I have also combined them. For example, this post had two different patterns attached: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1333#p23561 so I split it into the portraits: http://spritestitch.wikia.com/wiki/Chro ... th_sprites and the balloons: http://spritestitch.wikia.com/wiki/Chro ... e_Balloons

The balloons page is an example of two separate posts that I combined into one wiki; they both have links back to their original postings, and have their own infoboxes since the pattern info is different.
