Community Wishlist Survey 2017/Multimedia and Commons/Allow exploration of categories at upload time

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Allow exploration of categories at upload time

  • Problem: Category selection via the upload wizard on Commons performs autocompletion, which is helpful, but doesn't allow for walking the category tree, so finding a more specific, more general, or sibling category involves either opening the category in another tab and navigating the tree there, or completing the upload wizard and then using HotCat to refine the categories afterwards.
  • Who would benefit: Anyone uploading and categorizing images to Commons.
  • Proposed solution: Integrate HotCat or something like it with the Commons upload wizard.
  • Phabricator tickets:


Good, clear description of the problem. I agree with the proposed solution. Downtowngal (talk) 23:49, 10 November 2017 (UTC)[reply]
