[[commons:Special:UploadCampaigns]] Provide option to add custom lists of categories to select from
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Author: test5555

Description:
For upload campaigns with a more restricted scope, it might be interesting to have several optional set of categories to pick from, e.g. for Monuments one could define:

(1) a list of monuments
(2) a list of types of views

for users to pick from. This would avoid them having to know the exact name of the category.

Ideally there would 4-5 such fields that allow to define lists of categories. As a delimiter of entries within the field, one could use "|". Displayed would be as a HotCat generated list of sub- or parent categories.

Special:UploadCampaigns no longer exists, but you can now specify a <select> for IDs instead of just a textbox. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:UploadWizard/Campaigns for docs!

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
