Needs more explanation[edit]

I think this page needs more explanation. What should the URL point to? The default given,, doesn't appear to be a valid path on Commons so we can't use that as an example. --Kingboyk 18:17, 18 November 2006 (UTC)

Totally agreed.

  • explain what the URL points to: why is there a "host" part and then "/shared/images", which is never seen in MW URLs ?
  • possibly give an example based on the standard nomenclature, eg you have<page>: what should you set $wgUseSharedUploads to?
  • explain how this setting is used. I assumed something like: on [[Image:<filename>]], MW looks for filename in its own /images/ directory, and if not found, emits a sheer href=$wgUseSharedUploads/File:filename in the output HTML, but this seems not to be the case

I also agree. Please put an example in where also the value for $wgSharedUploadDBname is clearly defined. --Master on EN 13:27, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
