Category creation during upload, using the UploadWizard
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Would it be possible to create the category when uploading with the wizard? This would be helpful for books and for their images to be used on Wikisource.

What category? This needs a bit more detail.

@DatGuy I think @Ineuw means ability to create (maybe add cats) while in the UploadWizard before clicking Upload (or its equivalent).

@Ineuw do you want a totally new interface that detects redlinked categories after upload, and offers an option to create a page for them? It's not totally clear the scope of this request, but if you can clarify, I'd be happy to talk with someone about what it would entail.

**MarkTraceur & Zppix, That's exactly what I could use if possible. When I prepare files for upload, I have ready all the necessary info required by the Wizard, except the new (book) category. Having the ability to define a non-existing category before the upload would save several steps afterwards. I realize that a new category also requires a relation to another category, so this must also be specified when creating. Below is a list from which I work. Some categories exist because I created them after the upload.
