[UI Enhancement] Show media license in search results
Open, LowPublic


Background: The search results include, words, size, and upload date. License for the content pages isn't really needed because most pages have the same license, however, media licenses are important for re-users.

Issue raised by a user (and paraphrased):

  • As a reader, I can't easily find out what license a file has when viewing search results
  • As a media re-user, licenses are not displayed in search results when querying for reusable files
  • As an editor, it's difficult to find files without a license for updating, deleting or to add in appropriate licenses

Proposed solution: In each search result - add the license (maybe as an icon) fetched from the commons metadata api.

Note: this is not the same as the previous metadata related suggestion. This suggestion merely proposes the addition of a license label next to each file result.

We would have to add this to the indexes, since we don't track it right now. Structured Data for Commons would make this much easier - delaying until then.
