Closed, ResolvedPublic


I work as an archivist for Regionaal Archief Nijmegen.

As part of a regional Wikipedian in Residence-project I wish to upload image files to Wikimedia Commons. User Mtmlan84 is our wikipedian in residence.

Images we wish to upload have URL's like this one:

The image gallery I wish to add to Wikimedia Commons:

No emergency, but it would be great if we could finish this project in 2017.

Change 394379 had a related patch set (by MarcoAurelio) published:
[operations/mediawiki-config@master] Add to $wgCopyUploadsDomains

If there are no concerns with that domain being added I'll try to find a suitable deployment window to merge that patch.

Nihil obstat so scheduling this for the next avalaible SWAT window.

Hello @Reniervdg and @tomasz:

The domain has been whitelisted now. Could you please if it is working as expected?

I'm not exactly sure how to test this, but as the URL has now been added to $wgCopyUploadsDomains, I'm assuming everything is working correctly.

Please do feel free to re-open this if that proves not to be the case.

Thank you for processing my request. I tried to test-upload an image file via URL with Pattypan, but this attempt failed. See the above attachment for the error.

Has this got anything to do with the form of URL? The URL's I am attempting to use are constructed like this: They're not direct links that end with the image file extension (tif/jpg/etc).

@Reniervdg I think that might be caused because of the .ico file extension which the system does not allow to upload. @Reedy any ideas on what could be done here? Thanks.

@MarcoAurelio 'ico' is part of the URL, but if you copy/paste the URL in your browser, the image file you download is a .tif

@Reniervdg are you using a custom build of Pattypan? Uploading by URL has not landed in a release yet...

@Reniervdg you can solve this by making sure the name column in your spreadsheet ends with the expected file extension, in this case .tif. This is required by Pattypan when uploading from URL.
