Question by uploading[edit]

Hello. We're trying to upload via GLAMwiki Toolset and we have <br/>-Tags. So we have escaped them like this &lt;br/&gt;. But that doesn't work. How can we define a <br/>-Tag in the XML so that will be the HTML-tag here? And we have also tried to format bold by '''. Actually that are written like this ''' in the text instead of formatting bold. How can we define in the XML that it is formatted bold? --Micha (talk) 10:31, 22 December 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Michar. I think I had the same problem and did not find a good solution. A solution would be to have template:clear working like on WPEN Kelson (talk) 11:26, 23 December 2015 (UTC)[reply]

I lost my rights to upload because of Covid-Situation[edit]

Hi. Since April our project was paused. On Monday I have tried to upload files. I receive an error message that I have to ask an administrator. We have a timeline to December to upload the FLAC files to become again GLAM budget in 2021.

Thank you for your help.
