 ◄ Back to Multimedia and Commons  The survey has concluded. Here are the results!


  • Problem: Today Upload Wizard is providing file by file selection and bulk uploading facility only. It takes much more time and if any interruptions such as power loss, connectivity loss etc. occurred while uploading, all efforts went in vain.
  • Who would benefit:
  • Proposed solution: Provide file uploading facility like Pattypan.

Discussion[edit]

UploadWizard lets you select multiple files at once and I think it does as much as it can for parallel uploading. If you can’t select multiple files at once, it’s most likely a browser- or OS-related issue and should be considered as a bug. You can open a task for it on Phabricator or report it on its feedback page on Commons. I don’t know what Pattypan is, could you explain it or provide a link? —Tacsipacsi (talk) 14:09, 11 November 2017 (UTC)

Probably c:Commons:Pattypan. In which case the answer is probably "Pattypan already exists". Anomie (talk) 16:33, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

Added the Phabricator tasks about fixing this within UploadWizard (by allowing it to resume/finish uploads) --Tgr (WMF) (talk) 01:02, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

@Shagil Kannur: Would you prefer for this be implemented as an improvement to Upload Wizard or as a stand-alone application? Ryan Kaldari (WMF) (talk) 22:43, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
