Handle Flickr public domain automatically

DemonDays64 (talkcontribs)

Hi. I love the UploadWizard's Flickr features. However, when I insert a photo from Flickr that is labeled public domain (e.g. try putting this one into it ) to it on Commons the thing doesn't know what to do and I have to manually choose the license unlike with CC type stuff.

Can this be fixed to automatically figure it out?

Is it possible to change the default template?

I have template already set up for my needs, and would like to add it rather than the {{Information}} template? Is that possible?

Dropdown instead of autocomplete for categories

Bert Van de Poel (talkcontribs)

We're trying to figure out how we can make it easier for very inexperienced users to add files (not images) to a specific wiki page. We're considering adding specific files automatically based on categories. Now, by default UploadWizard shows a category field with autocomplete. While that looks really nice, it requires the user to actually know the category name, or at least the first character(s). Is there a configuration option to either autocomplete all possible categories once the field is clicked, or to replace the field outright with a simple dropdown menu. Of course we can imagine this is not the most common use case, but it would be practical for us if one of those options happened to be available.

"All possible categories" could be many hundreds of thousands of entries. How would they be sorted? Showing the options "Aardvark", "Aaron", and "Aarhus" wouldn't necessarily be much use! Or do you mean configuring a small set of categories with which to prompt users?

How do I make it so that I can do duplicate uploads?

Hi, how to remove the requirement to enter a date? I have a personal wiki, I don't wish to set any date. Thanks

Sorry, we could not find any files for the tutorial that is supposed to go here. Please contact the system administrators.

We need $wgUseInstantCommons = true; in order to get this to work.

I'm administrating two wikis. Both are REL1_34 and have almost the same configuration in LocalSettings.php and almost the same set of extensions. Both wikis uses PHP7.3 on Apache2.4. I'm running these wikis since version 1.25. The main difference is that the first one is hosted on Ubuntu 16.04 and the second on Ubuntu 18.04.

The wiki hosted on Ubuntu 18.04 works without any issues.

The wiki hosted on Ubuntu 16.04 is a wiki family, so all of the wikis uses few common tables. Today I've found, I'm having an issue with this wiki. I'm receiving the message "Sorry, we could not find any files for the tutorial that is supposed to go here. Please contact the system administrators." at the first step of UploadWizzard. The rest steps works great as it is expected.

I do not know how to debug this issue. There is noting in the Apache's log files. I reinstalled the extension and removed the custom configuration from LocalSettings.php with no success.

Please point me to the right direction to solve this issue.

Huh, I've found, we need $wgUseInstantCommons = true; in order to get this to work.

Адыгэбзэ in description ???

What does the word "Адыгэбзэ" that appears in the description page of Upload Wizard page means?

It seams the first item of a dropdown list but in effect it's the only item of that dropdown.

May I missed some configuration parameter?

Configuring commentary field

Summary by Kghbln

Tracked with task T142687.

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

By default "User created page with UploadWizard" is being added to the commentary field when uploading an image, even if the language of the wiki instance is set to another language. Is it possible to configure this sentence?
