Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description:
Hello. As discussed here: http://fo.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Undirh%C3%BAsi%C3%B0#Myndir we have a problem with users uploading images that are obviously non free without any licenses, and even free images that should be put on commons, leaving us administrators a lot of work to delete images. What we would like to do is close the upload form to the Faroese Wiki (Fo.wikipedia.org) to all users EXCEPT for Administrators and Bereaucrats. And have the upload form for normal users redirect to Commons. Or if not possible, then I guess I can just edit the MediaWiki:Upload form for Commons redirection. Thank you.

Ok, I am working on translating the commons interface into faroese. I want when a user clicks on the upload link on the faroese wikipedia, it redirects it to the Commons:Upload/fo form. And also have the upload form closed so when a user clicks on a red link, it does not allow them to upload locally, unless they are of course an ADMINISTRATOR. Thanks again!

Set wgUploadNavigationUrl = 'http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Upload?uselang=fo'
Set groupOverrides to

'fowiki' => array(
	'user' => array( 'upload' => false ),
	'sysop' => array( 'upload' => true ),
),

DONE.

Sounds great ! Just one thing, it should be:

Set wgUploadNavigationUrl =
'http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Commons:Upload/fo&uselang=fo'

Thats all. Thanks a lot! :)
