Arrow La Gomera

It's probably really simple but I don't know how to do it:
Could someone, please add and entry for the Canary Island:
La Gomera
and re-direct it to the excellent article at:
Gomera
Thanks,
Alan
[I had a pleasant two weeks there recently and only 95% of the birds were Canaries!]

Ah! Hi Alan

Do I take it the correct title for the article should be La Gomera? If so I can simply re-name that article.

Is this what you are wanting?

As far as I know the island is always called La Gomera so perhaps that would be best.

OK thanks Alan, I'll re-name it.

For future reference, though, if you want to do a Re-direct, this is the code:

#REDIRECT [[Insert correct page title here]], so you'd search for, say, Gomera, click on the orange link (as the page wouldn't be found), put in the re-direct coding, then type in La Gomera between the brackets.

Did you happen to get any nice habitat-type pictures whilst you were over there - the article could do with one or two?

[[Image:FILENAME.jpg|thumb|550px|right|Photo by <br/>SMALL TEXT PLACED BELOW PHOTO IF NEEDED]]

place it just beneath the Incomplete template

Yell if you need any help

OK, I have put three pictures up.
The code you give NEVER works first time for me.
I always go back through the Gallery of recent file uploads, then Copy FILENAME.jpg and Paste it back into the editing process.
Maybe it takes a couple of minutes to know it has the file!

That page looks great now Alan, thanks.

LOL what you have done is exactly what you need to do, i.e. replace FILENAME with the actual name of the file you uploaded.

Sorry if I didn't explain that

I do use the right name and it doesn't work. Then I paste in an exact copy of the name and it does work. Spooky!

Strange that Alan, it appears that the .JPG is case sensitive, didn't realise that; I suppose because I've always copied/pasted the filename from the Image upload I've never noticed.
