FileExporter not working at Meta
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

FileExporter was enabled on Meta per T205201: Deploy extension-FileExporter to Meta-Wiki with https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/operations/mediawiki-config/+/466774/

It is not working, however. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:Upd66osnuwt89uv6

I cannot figure out what might be wrong or missing.

Thanks for your assistance.

It displayed a message saying that meta.wikimedia config page "does not contain enough info about <Information>". So I copied the missing information section from en.wikipedia config page. It should be working now.

Sorry - Tried again with https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Globe_of_letters.gif and I don't see yet the "export to Wikimedia Commons" tab :(

It's a beta feature. Have you enabled it in your preferences?

That was the issue. I feel embarrased but we also identified the issue with the on-wiki config being incomplete. Thank you!
