Unknown Error: "unknown"[edit | edit source]

When trying to upload an image, I always get the error Unknown error: "unknown". Is there a way to get more information about reasons for this error? Using MediaWiki 1.20.2 and PHP 5.4.9 on IIS. Thank you!

Mediawiki.Uri Error[edit | edit source]

I get the following error in Chrome:

Uncaught Error: Unknown dependency: mediawiki.Uri
recurse      load.php:3965
recurse      load.php:3979
resolve      load.php:4000
resolve      load.php:3989
loader.load  load.php:4307
(anonymous function)

I think that it is related to the mediawiki.Uri.js file that is supposed to be inside the Resources folder of my wiki. However, I'm using the latest 1.17 version and it still won't work. I can't find the older (legacy) version of this extension. Any ideas?? Thanks! --Fladei 23:16, 15 November 2011 (UTC)


EDIT: You didn't use version 1.17 for the extension I am guessing. If you select to download the version for 1.18, it will give you that error.

Promising extension.

Really great extension but when am using it its giving me the following error Fatal error: Class 'UploadWizardMessages' not found in D:\xampp\xampp\htdocs\home\extensions\UploadWizard\SpecialUploadWizard.php on line 106

and read me error is nowhere to be found, not even in trunk. Help is highly appreciated.

No instructions[edit | edit source]

Why no instructions on how to install this? Pretty ridiculous if you expect everyone to know how to automatically install this. I uploaded it, tried to add it to my localsettings and wham, nothing.

Help???
Yes I have had the same problem. I follow meticulously the several steps but nothing happen when I try on the wiki. Is something missing in the install tutorial ? Workworkwork 21:45, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

Same issue.. Install ImageMagick? ok where? and am I'm then supposed to install commandline features on my server? Wonder what my ISP think of that.

Multi-upload[edit | edit source]

Why do I still have to pick each file manually? Other upload forms allow you to select more than 1 file in the "browsing window". Or even drag'n'drop. If Flickr and Gmail use such features, it can't be user unfriendly. --Subfader 19:26, 2 April 2011 (UTC)


Upload Wizard stops while uploading[edit | edit source]

Hi, UploadWizard starts uploading and files are saved in the image directory - but then it stops at the second step, see image. Tested in MW 1.16 and MW 1.17.

UploadWizard-stops.png

I get the following error message:

   mw.UploadWizardUpload::getThumbnail> thumbnail error or missing information

What did I wrong? Thanks for support, --Filburt 15:18, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Too bad this is only for 1.17 and above. Bennylin 15:02, 7 July 2011 (UTC)
Running this on WikiQueer, left it enabled but having this problem as well. Sometimes it gets stuck loading the initial page and then usually freezes the browser window. --Varnent 05:24, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

I was also able to recreate this on mediawiki 1.17.1.

In internet explorer 9, it hangs at this screen: C:\fakepath\ColorPrinterFlyer.pdf Getting file information and previews...

In FireFox 9, it hangs with this message: ColorPrinterFlyer.pdf Getting file information and previews..

Upload Wizard gets stucked[edit | edit source]

Hi! I could install Upload Wizard, so whenever I go to Special:UploadWizard I can seee the Wikimedia Commons tutorial and select a file to upload but when I choose the file Upload Wizard gets stuck in the process of uploading and after waiting a while the file doesn't upload but I don't get any error message. I am using Mediawiki 1.20. Please help! Thanks

Uploads fail, "readapidenied"[edit | edit source]

Whenever I try to upload a file (or multiple files), I get the same error every time:

The server returned an error we did not understand: "readapidenied"

Additionally (not sure if this is related), when I select a file to upload, its path is displayed as "C:\fakepath\foo.jpg", no matter when on my disk the file actually lies.

I can second this Uploads fail but not for all images.

Adding categories with colons in them[edit | edit source]

I still get a javascript error message when I try to add categories during uploadwizard if the category name has a colon ":" in it. --99of9 01:33, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Optional configuration values[edit | edit source]

I have installed it at my own wiki website 1.17 and can confirm it works as expected. However, i have a few suggestions. I think it would be better to add additional configuration settings to disable/enable the various pages in the wizard. For example the first learn page, although informative, it's a bit too much for many people. Long, English and the text cannot be modified and for small website it may not be necessary. In addition as another user here commented it should be possible to add multiple files without having to add one at a time. Other than that thank you for this extension, we really needed some good user interface for many parts of mediawiki to make it attractive and inviting for the regular user and this is one step forward. -- User:Wikimanz

Tutorial is translated, see e.g. commons:File:Licensing tutorial de.svg, and an option skipTutorial exists, e.g. as in (undocumented, check UploadWizard.config.php for further options):
$wgUploadWizardConfig = array(
'autoCategory' => 'Uploaded with UploadWizard',
'feedbackPage' => 'UploadWizard Feedback',
'altUploadForm' => 'Special:Upload',
'fallbackToAltUploadForm' => false, # true -> "-...been disabled due to temporary technical problems..."
'enableMultiFileSelect' => true,
'maxSimultaneousConnections' => 5, // default 3. Max number of simultaneous upload requests 
'skipTutorial' => true,      // Set skipTutorial to true to always skip tutorial step
);

Problem with the extension using Mediawiki in French[edit | edit source]

I had a problem using the extension with Mediawiki 1.17 in French. Whenever I tried to upload content, I clicked the the button to select a file, the dialog popped up but when I clicked "Open" it did not add files to the list. I looked at the Javascript error log and found out it seemed to be a problem with the namespace in which image files are added ("file" in English, but "fichier" in French) which seemed to be why I had this bug.

I then corrected 3 lines in combined.min.js (I could have done it in combine.js but I do not know how to minify it again). I changed the following lines: 10536 this.title=new mw.Title(mw.UploadWizardUtil.getBasename(localFilename),'fichier'); 10945 _this.upload.title=new mw.Title(mw.UploadWizardUtil.getBasename(path),'fichier'); 11397 var title=new mw.Title(result.title).setNamespace('fichier').getNameText();

I hope this can help someone, there must be a way to correct this problem but for now I managed to make the extension work. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 142.213.192.126 (talkcontribs) 15:57, Nov 24, 2011 (UTC)


Error[edit | edit source]

When I go to Special:UploadCampaigns on my wiki I keep getting this error.

Generality issues[edit | edit source]

I've been seeking to add batch upload functionality to my MediaWiki installation, and came across this extension today. While it works after a fashion, it seems too specialized for use in the Wikimedia Commons. Here are some first impressions:

  • Upon every use, it displays a 'Learn' page suitable for new Wikimedia Commons users or small children, requiring the user to scroll down and click 'Next' to begin.
  • This 'Next' button is sometimes faded out and unusable for reasons that are not clear. This seems to include any time the 'Upload more files' button is used to restart the wizard.
  • Navigation is possible only by buttons at the bottom of the page, which never include 'Back', and not by the progress indicator at the top.
  • The 'Learn' page displays a large, red error banner if Instant Commons is not enabled.
  • The 'Upload' page has its own extension-checking mechanism, ignoring settings in LocalSettings.php that are specifically designed for that purpose.
  • The 'Upload' page hangs indefinitely on any attempt to upload a file that already exists or was previously deleted, and does not give the opportunity to change the file name to avoid a collision.
  • The 'Release rights' and 'Describe' pages require licensing and description metadata for each file, even when the wiki is configured to not require that information.
  • The 'Go to wiki home page' link at the end of the 'Use' page does not link to the wiki home page, but to the top level of the web domain, which in my case is a 403 error.

The version is UploadWizard-MW1.17-r85033.

Unable to upload[edit | edit source]

First try.
Second try

First, after complete all the forms, it said «Boletín_Oficial_de_la_República_Argentina_(01/07/1893).gif [api-error-unknownerror]». Then, after retry (as .jpeg), it denies to allow {{PD-100}} as licence (but preview works fine). So, I must use the old upload page.

Upload files from blacklist[edit | edit source]

Hi

In my wiki I've got disabled BlackList file extensions by code:

$wgStrictFileExtensions = false;
$wgCheckFil--~~~~eExtensions = false;
$wgVerifyMimeType=false;
#$wgFileExtensions = array( 'png', 'gif', 'jpg', 'jpeg', 'ppt', 'pptx', 'pdf', 'psd', 'mp3', 'xls', 'xlsx', 'swf', 'doc','docx', 'odt', 'odc', 'odp', 'odg', 'mpp', 'exe');
$wgFileBlacklist = array_diff( $wgFileBlacklist, array( 'html', 'htm', 'js', 'jsb', 'mhtml', 'mht', 'php', 'phtml', 'php3', 'php4', 'php5', 'phps', 'shtml', 'jhtml', 'pl', 'py', 'cgi', 'exe', 'scr', 'dll', 'msi', 'vbs', 'bat', 'com', 'pif', 'cmd', 'vxd', 'cpl' ) );

I can successfully upload .exe file by the old page special:upload, but by the new special:uploadwizard I can't. My wiki shown me error about restricted file extension .exe.

If I uncomment string with $wgFileExtensions, then all will be fine and .exe file will be uploaded. So it's a problem or by design that extension ignored $wgFileBlacklist = array_diff ?

Javascript error in Mediawiki 1.19.1[edit | edit source]

I've installed this extension but when I navigate to SpecialPage:UploadWizard I get this screen

"This page has been disabled due to temporary technical problems. In the meantime try the standard upload form."

I see no errors in my Apache access or error logs, and in the Javascript console this is all I see

mw.loader::execute> Exception thrown by ext.uploadWizard: Cannot read property 'length' of undefined      load.php:148

All necessary values are set in LocalSettings.php and I have this options hash

$wgUploadWizardConfig = array(
        'debug'                         => true,        
        'autoCategory'                  => 'Uploads',

);


Uploads fail, "Unknown error - http"[edit | edit source]

Whenever I try to upload a file (or multiple files), I get the same error every time:

Unknown error - "http"

Solution

Add following lines to your LocalSettings.php

$wgEnableAPI = true;
$wgEnableWriteAPI = true;

no upload if file site exists[edit | edit source]

i.e. http://simpsonspedia.net/index.php?title=Datei:KABF02_001.jpg i'd like to upload the file KABF02_001.jpg but UploadWizard tell me "a file with this name exists". no upload

same problem, if a file was deleted. i couldn't upload a file mit the same name. "it was a file exist, but this file was deleted" i.e. http://simpsonspedia.net/index.php?title=Datei:Pet_Shop_PABF16.jpg

i need a possibility to upload files in both cases.


an other topic: $wgUploadWizardConfig['autoCategories'] = 'Framegrabs'; if i use this variable than i get a category "F", a category "R", a category "A", a category "M", a category "E", a category "G", a category "B",and a category "S" but i need an category named "Framegrabs"

Next button doesn't work[edit | edit source]

I've seen that several people have this same problem; but no one seems to have gotten an answer. whenever i try to upload an image to my wiki the "next" button on the "describe" page does nothing. it just turns grey and the page does not load or anything. I am currently on firefox 12.0, however i have tried multiple browsers, i've tried updating my media wiki installation to 1.20.1. i am using uploadwizard 1.3 any response would be greatly appreciated.

Trying to locate file[edit | edit source]

I am trying to locate the file with File:Licensing tutorial en.svg, I'd like to replace it with a version I adapted for my project. I've ran a search with my FTP client and came up dry. Can someone point me to that location ? thanx, Mlpearc (powwow) 17:18, 8 December 2012 (UTC)

I had the same question, here is the solution: First, you need to upload the file in your Wiki via Special:Upload or Special:UploadWizard. Then you need to set 'tutorialTemplate' => 'Licensing_tutorial_$1.svg' in your LocalSettings.php with your file name and the other settings in $wgUploadWizardConfig = array();
The $1 in the file name is the language code - i.e. en, de... If you use a svg-file you need to enable SVG support for your Wiki, see Manual:Image_administration#SVG --Filburt (talk) 14:17, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
Thank you Filburt, I'll start configuring that now, I already have the new file uploaded, am a little surprised to see it's a configuration in LS.php, I was thinking I needed to change the filename in a directory within the UploadWizard extension. Again thanx. P.S. works great ! 20:02, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

How to customize?[edit | edit source]

We would like to make the "description" and "title" non-mandatory. Is there a setting available in LocalSettings or through a MediaWiki: wikipage?

Also, the list of licenses for the normal 1-file upload form (= MediaWiki:Licenses) is being ignored. Is there a second setting for the UploadWizard, or is the selection of available licenses hard-coded? --Vigilius (talk) 14:20, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

UW stuck on "Uploading...", never returns[edit | edit source]

I'm having a problem with UploadWizard and I can't figure out what's wrong. UW used to work gloriously, but then it just stopped.

When I upload a file, the thumbnail displays well. Then it just displays the "Uploading..." status and it never proceeds. The file appears in the stash, but never as an actual file.

I've tried: - removing stash files - trying different file formats - different users - new files, old files.

I enabled various debugging and am posting the log below. The error most concerning is:

Class PEAR_Error not found; skipped loading

Any ideas?

Uploading Duplicate or Revised Files[edit | edit source]

Users on my wiki are updating files offline and would like to update the 'wiki version' of this file after their done. This normally works when you go through the built in upload tool, but I've tried to use Upload Wizard for the same function and it gives me an error message: "There is another file already on the site with the same content." Is there a way to allow duplicate or revised files to be uploaded using this Upload Wizard? Thanks in advance! --Jhunter13 (talk) 22:24, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Page stuck on loading image[edit | edit source]

I've installed the files and changed the LocalSettings file to enable the UploadWizard but when I go to the page it doesn't load properly. All I get is the 24px-spinner-0645ad.gif image file that indicates that it is trying to load the wizard but nothing happens. I'm using WikiMedia 1.21. Anybody else have this problem? Or even better a solution to the problem --Tenzel Kim (talk) 10:19, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

My wiki is the same after upgrading to 1.21?

Same Issue here. Ltickett (talk)

Same issue with a fresh install of 1.21 AndyDenn (talk)

The extensions javascript assumes that another extension is active that is not active by default, so you need to enable Extension:TitleBlacklist to get it to work.

I've enabled TitleBlacklist, but I still get the same problem.

Incorrect documentation regarding configuration arguments[edit | edit source]

Adding the following variable of 'skipTutorial' to LocalSettings.php does not actually skip the tutorial. This is per the documentation.

$wgUploadWizardConfig = array(
        'skipTutorial' => true
 );

Modifying UploadWizard.config.php directly (which is bad) on line 106 ('skip' => true,) does remove the tutorial.

It appears that the method to configure settings is different in the actual code and inconsistent with the documentation. Can anyone clarify or help provide the correct syntax to set options?

Download Link Doesnt Exist[edit | edit source]

I am unable to download this extension. When I click on the Download link, it says extension doesnt exist. So is this extension abandoned? What is the status of this? Maybe the page needs to be updated if this is no longer available.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Alien Time (talkcontribs)

Page stuck on loading image[edit | edit source]

I installed the extension and when I go to Special:UploadWizard the page keeps loading forever, all I can see is a spinner. I'm using MW 1.21 Any solution for this? Thanks

Hello IsraelDefenseForces. It is best to put new questions on the bottom of the page. On your question, you are basically telling everyone that you are not able to get it to work on MW 1.21. There are a lot of set-up possibilities with this extension you should at least let everyone know how you configured the extension. Did you test this on a clean MW install with only this extension activated? A small note, your username seems a little odd to me. Are you suggesting the Israeli defense forces are using MediaWiki now? :) --Jongfeli (talk) 11:57, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi Jongfeli, thanks for the answer. I tried disabling all the others extension I have and it still doesn't work. I tried setting up a clean MW to test and it didn't work either.
Concerning the extension, I just downloaded it, put the folder UploadWizard in extensions and added these following lines in Localsettings :
$wgEnableUploads = true;
$wgGenerateThumbnailOnParse = true;
$wgUseImageMagick = true;
$wgImageMagickConvertCommand = "/usr/bin/convert";
$wgApiFrameOptions = 'SAMEORIGIN';
require_once( "$IP/extensions/UploadWizard/UploadWizard.php" );

I've read in the discussion page that other users report the same problem but no solution has been found yet! If you can help me, thank you. NB : concerning the nickname I wasn't very imaginative so I took the first thing I saw in my browser ;)

Thanks! User:IsraelDefenseForces

I tried this on a clean MW-1.21.1 and downloaded the latest code from here for UploadWizard. The only extension active is UploadWizard and it works just fine. In your set-up you use $wgImageMagickConvertCommand = "/usr/bin/convert"; this means you are running your wiki on a Linux server? Are you using an ancient browser?
If you are stuck create a new Wiki (when possible) on which you can upload images $wgEnableUploads = true;, don't use ImageUpload yet. See if uploading images is working fine with the default interface from MediaWiki. Then enable UploadWizard without the extra configuration settings just require_once( "$IP/extensions/UploadWizard/UploadWizard.php" ); and see what happens. --Jongfeli (talk) 07:13, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

I was able to resolve this by disabling the Vector extension that I had carried over to MW 1.22 during an upgrade from a MW 1.18 installation.

Problem with UploadWizard regarding file extensions.[edit | edit source]

Since I upgraded to MW 1.21 I have a problem with UW (UploadWizard) regarding file extensions.

For instance, I try to upload a .ogg file, UW says that files with file extension .ogg is not allowed. When I try it on the normal upload, the file uploads. This UW problem happens with all allowed file extensions.

I also have the following MediaWiki extensions: TitleBlacklist, UploadBlacklist. (might not be helpful)

derivative works[edit | edit source]

It would be great if the uploadwizard form had some field to precise individually that the picture is some derivative work and give some links to the original files if it is on the same server. For example see BS icons on commons.wikimedia.--Akiry (talk) 13:32, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

Misleading description[edit | edit source]

The description is a litte bit crappy. It describes what to do but its not everytime clear if it is obligatory or nor an why doesnt it start with the file to download and where to put it? Ogmios (talk) 10:30, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

Campaign special page bug[edit | edit source]

UploadWizard v1.3, displays special page "<campaigns>". Clicking this special page link, leads to the following error:

A database query error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software.

Flickr Upload stuck[edit | edit source]

Regular uploads work fine, but the flickr uploads get stuck. Tried using both the stable and the latest v1.4 of the extension.

Namespace Campaign – Does it have to be configured additionally?[edit | edit source]

We have UW 1.3 running and the Namespace “Campaign” or “Campaign Talk” does not show up when searching the wiki. So I wonder if it has to be defined? Somehow like this:

define('NS_CAMPAIGN', 460);// 460 it is in https://commons.wikimedia.org
define('NS_CAMPAIGN_TALK', 461);// 461 it is in https://commons.wikimedia.org
if( $wgDBname == "my-special-wiki" ) {
  $wgExtraNamespaces = array(
    NS_INTERNAL      => "Campaign",
    NS_INTERNAL_TALK => "Campaign Talk"
  );
}

Or how does the namespace “Campaign” or “Campaign Talk” gets activated or to be able to search it? --Andreas P. Icon External Link E-Mail.png 13:39, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
