Details[edit | edit source]

Users also need to have the associated user right upload_by_url before this option is available. By default only administrators (sysops) have this permission.

By default, upload by URL are only possible using the API (or extensions such as Extension:UploadWizard). To make the option usable from Special:Upload, you need to set $wgCopyUploadsFromSpecialUpload to true as well.

By default, any source URL location is allowed, but you can whitelist a specific set by using $wgCopyUploadsDomains.

Example usage[edit | edit source]

This example setup will allow all autoconfirmed users to upload by URL, via Special:Upload or the API. Add to the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:

$wgGroupPermissions['autoconfirmed']['upload_by_url'] = true;
$wgAllowCopyUploads = true;
$wgCopyUploadsFromSpecialUpload = true;
