How do I make links?

A link is the name of the page surrounded by double square brackets.
[[page name]]
[[page name]]s -- suffix will display as part of the link
[[page name | display name]] -- hide the page name and display something else
[[page name (disambiguation)|]] -- the part in parentheses will not be displayed.
Do not put underscores ("_") to act as space separators like you see in links. Use regular space characters.

How can I put pictures on my pages?

If the picture is located on a server you control, you can refer to that image by including its URL and it will be linked, but not displayed.
If you want to display an image, upload the picture to WikiMusicGuide by using Special:Upload. Once uploaded, you can refer to it in your wiki pages by using [[Image:filename.png]].
