Check usage and version matrix.

The SimpleBatchUpload extension provides basic, no-frills uploading of multiple files to MediaWiki at Special:BatchUpload, using the jQuery File Upload JavaScript library.


  • PHP 5.4 or later
  • MediaWiki 1.26 or later


The recommended way to download this extension is by using Composer. To do that, just add the following to the MediaWiki composer.local.json file and run php composer.phar update mediawiki/simple-batch-upload from the MediaWiki installation directory.

	"require": {
		"mediawiki/simple-batch-upload": "~1.0"

Alternatively, you can download a tar ball or zip file from GitHub, and extract it into the extensions directory of your MediaWiki installation.

Do not use Git to download this extension: the downloaded code will be incomplete, lacking, most notably, the jQuery File Upload library.


Add the following line to your LocalSettings.php:


To make sure that SimpleBatchUpload has been installed correctly, check that an entry for it exists at Special:Version and that Special:BatchUpload is working.
