Cannot upload a file via MediaWiki UploadWizard[edit]

Hi All,

I've tried to upload a file to Wiki Commons using the MediaWiki UploadWizard I've just installed but any upload stalls. I'm trying to upload a 15kb file size but hangs - no errors and the progress bar time keeps on climbing.

Below is the environment I'm trying on with versions:

Upload Wizard 1.5.0 GPL-2.0+

Product Version MediaWiki 1.26.0 PHP 5.5.9-1ubuntu4.17 (apache2handler) MySQL 5.5.46-0ubuntu0.14.04.2 ICU 52.1

Thank you in advance :-)

Add "I'll fill in details later"[edit]

Add "I'll fill in all details later" checkbox so user can make a quick upload while having a good connection, and fill in the details when back in the office.

Maybe have it add a category "Pending user filling in details" Jidanni (talk) 17:06, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

I'm often in a hurry on the road with small screen and no time for details. So, description is "Back of church" and category is "Philadelphia". Hours or days later, sitting with the real computer and big screen, I look in my "Contributions" list for my uploads. I properly describe and categorize, apply or adjust geotag, and supply other appropriate details. Any uploader could make a distinct category, but I don't see the need.

Upload issues on Microsoft Edge[edit]

For some reason the thumbnails seem to also disappear once this issue rears its ugly head...

I use a Microsoft Lumia 950 XL phablet with Microsoft Edge to upload images and for some reason the "next" button seems to disappear sometimes. It happens only with one tab and always happens if I reload that tab but not always with another tab, I also upload with a Nokia Lumia 730 Dual SIM with Microsoft's Internet Explorer but don't seem to have this issue there. Is anyone else who uses Microsoft Edge experiencing this? --Donald Trung 『徵國單』 (No Fake News 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 07:03, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

Suggestion: Add a button for self made but using a different license not listed[edit]

For example, if you want to upload a file in public domain because it is considered ineligible for copyright, there's no way to select that license tag without having to edit it after uploading. There should be a way to use a different license template.

Given the number of undeletion requests we see where the requester believes that the photograph they uploaded "isn't copyrighted", we really don't want it to be too easy to declare works ineligible. If someone issues a copyright license for an ineligible file, it is easy to correct by editing the file description. It is much harder to obtain a valid license for works which are mistakenly marked as public domain. We see this all the time with Flickr files uploaded with Public Domain Mark. Users who know what they're doing can choose the wikitext option to enter a PD ineligible tag or use Commons:Upload. LX (talk, contribs) 12:20, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
