The MultiUpload extension allows users to upload more than one file at a time. It aso unpacks package files (.zip, .tar, .tar.gz, and .tgz), allowing the files found in the package to be uploaded to the wiki.

Installation[edit | edit source]

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called MultiUpload in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
require_once "$IP/extensions/MultiUpload/MultiUpload.php";
  • Done! Navigate to "Special:Version" on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
For this extension to work, you have to have already allowed uploads on your wiki, see Manual:Configuring file uploads.

Options[edit | edit source]

Creating links to the extension[edit | edit source]

In the sidebar[edit | edit source]

To add a link to the sidebar by editing MediaWiki:Sidebar, adding a new line:

** Special:Multiupload|multiupload ("upload files")


** Special:Multiupload|multiupload-toolbox ("Upload multiple files").
In both examples of adding links to this extension in MediaWiki:Sidebar, if only "multipleupload" or "multipleupload-toolbox" shows in the sidebar, you may have to navigate in your wiki to "MediaWiki:Multipleupload" or "MediaWiki:Multipleupload-toolbox" and create the pages with the messages that are already shown.

Replacing 'Upload file' with MultiUpload in the sidebar[edit | edit source]

In the LocalSettings.php file, right below the last require_once line add:

$wgUploadNavigationUrl = "{$wgScriptPath}/index.php?title=Special:MultiUpload";

Setting the maximum number of files to upload[edit | edit source]

Warning Warning: As of r115614, the $wgMaxUploadFiles global isn't respected. After that commit, members of the staff group could upload 40 files at once via Special:MultiUpload, whereas sysop group could upload 20 at once, autoconfirmed could upload 10 and all other registered users could upload 5 files at once. Now, after complete replacement of the source code, it begins with one file and adds more as files are selected, with no upper limit.

To set the number of files to upload at once, Configure $wgMaxUploadFiles in your local settings file, the default setting is 5. The $wgMaxUploadFiles statement must be made after the require_once call. For example:

$wgMaxUploadFiles = 10;

Messages[edit | edit source]

Warning Warning: These messages and their names have changed since April 9, 2014, when the extension was rewritten. Notably, the message displayed on the top of the special page is now called Multiupload-text, no longer Multipleupload-text. Some of the older extension messages no longer exist.

You can change the messages of this extension through pages of MediaWiki namespace starting with multipleupload. For example, [[MediaWiki:Multiupload-text]] is the message displayed on MultipleUpload special page.

Other messages are:

multiupload-submit / multiupload-uploadedto / multiupload-row-name-base / multiupload-unpack-button / multiupload-notify-ok / multiupload-upload-package-error / multiupload-unpack-error / multiupload-http-error / multiupload-file-unpacked-from
