The Images

Use the Template:Figure template at the beginning of each figure. Figures must be manually numbered. Automatically numbering figures sequentially would require a plugin to the page renderer, like for references.

The template can take a single parameter, giving the figure number. This must be unique. With a single parameter, the template will render as "Figure X." The second parameter allows this to be changed to arbitrary text.

The references

Figures are referenced with the Template:See Figure template. It takes one or two parameters: the figure number, and an optional text to be displayed. The default is 'figure X'.

Examples
Code Result
(see {{See Figure|1}}) (see figure 1)
see {{See Figure|2|the figure on CP evolution}}. see the figure on CP evolution.

Avoid spaces around the figure number, as this will mess up the link.

Images

Figure 1. This is the first figure. It was numbered with {{Figure|1}}. Internally, it will have the id "fig1". IDs should be unique.
Fig 2. This is the second figure. It was numbered with {{Figure|2|Fig 2}}. It will have the id "fig2".

Tables

Tables can be added using the Template:Table and Template:See Table templates. They take the same parameters as Figure. See table 1 for an example.
