Add license drop down to Special:MediaSearch
Closed, DuplicatePublic


Now that a large percentage of media files on Commons have license data in their structured data, we should add a drop down to Special:MediaSearch allowing the user to filter by license:

  • All licenses
  • Creative Commons Attribution
  • Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike
  • CC0
  • Public domain

The CC0 option, for example, would filter for haswbstatement:P275=Q6938433. Note that some of these options cover multiple license items in Wikidata.
