$wgCategoryOnUploadList doesn't work?[edit]

I have an array setup per the instructions, but it still just shows the entire category list when you try to upload. MW1.15.1

only the development version supports the configuration setting $wgCategoryOnUploadList.
Thanks for the reply. :) Do you know if the svn version will work on MW1.15.1 or is it only tested on 1.16a?
It worked on my MW1.15.1 setting.

Also didn't work on my MW1.15.1. Maybe the description page should contain a note about that issue. It reads as if it would work from 1.11 while in fact it doesn't.--Schmelzle 09:35, 28 January 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Multiple Categories?[edit]

Is it possible to allow for selection of multiple categories? I would imagine this would require javascript to add entry fields and then put them into some foreach loop. My thoughts were going to be to make the drop-down list a copy/paste function which will add them to a text-entry field (thus people could, supposedly, add their own new categories that way). Has anyone been working on Multiple fields with this?

Perhaps simply add an option for multiple selection drop-down boxes? ie: $wgCategoryOnUploadNumber = 3 could result in 3 drop downs with which to choose from 3 different categories? --D0li0 02:29, 28 September 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Problems with MW 1.16alpha[edit]

The extensions seems not to work in MW 1.16alpha. The following error message appears: Fatal error: Cannot access protected property SpecialUpload::$mComment in ../extensions/CategoryOnUpload/CategoryOnUpload.php on line 179

Do you have an idea what is the reason for it? Thanks for support! -- 16:32, 15 March 2010 (UTC) I had a user report seeing this error to me, but I can't recreate it... MW 1.16beta 2. Anyone know the cause or the fix?-- 07:32, 1 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Solution Found![edit]

I kept getting this same error: Fatal error: Cannot access protected property SpecialUpload::$mComment in ../extensions/CategoryOnUpload/CategoryOnUpload.php on line 180

After debugging this awesome script for some time I followed the error all the way back to the SpecialUpload.php file. On line 38 you will see that the variable: $mComment is set to be protected. To fix this simply change it to public. Please note that I'm not entirely sure what this change will affect. I don't know if it opens the engine up to any security risks or not, so please proceed with caution when changing this setting.

What about for pages?[edit]

Great this works for images and other file uploads but any chance of getting the same functionality when creating new pages? --Robinson Weijman 11:05, 5 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Safety Check for Upload Categories?[edit]

The option $wgCategoryOnUploadAllowNone = false; is a good start to prevent users from uploading files into a "void". But is there a possibility to bring up a warning when no category is allowe and still is been selected?

In short: I want the default setting on "-" but warn my users if they forget on specifying a category.

I am with you[edit]

same request from me
