How to make it work (for the time being)Edit

Just to help those who struggled like me to make this work. On my installation (MW 1.16.5 /local host wampserver on windows7) there were two issues preventing the extension from working :

  • the php script assume that you use short Urls, which is not the case by default => fix : do the modifications as quoted below. If you installed your wiki in (eg) /wikiBibi you need to replace '/Special:UploadifyHandler' by '/wikiBibi/index.php/Special:UploadifyHandler' and son on (4 times in Uploadify.php).
  • on windows systems, php.exe is not in the path by default (eg if you use wampserver) ; the UploadifyHandler.php script isses a command that may fail. ==> fix : add the php.exe in you path.

Having done this, it worked on my PC; there must be a more elegant solution, but I don't know (and don't want to know) php. Phcalle 13:51, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

Doesn't seem to workEdit

Hey I uploaded the extension and added the lines you mentioned in my localsettings.php file but I don't see any uploadify sidebar panel. I also checked Versions page and it does not list the Uploadify extension at all. I am using MediaWiki 1.16.0 . Any clues ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

What happens when you access /Special:UploadifyHandler? There should be a blank page. If you get an "no special page" error, it seems the extension is not properly included (which also explains the mission extension on the versions page). Did you check the directory and file permissions of the Uploadify folder? Tobias.strebitzer 13:13, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
I get the blank white page when accessing /Special:UploadifyHandler page. Other than that I can't find it running anywhere. ... — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)
I had to modify Upload.php like this (added "/index.php"):
diff Uploadify.orig.php Uploadify.php
<       $script .= "'script'    : '/Special:UploadifyHandler',";
>       $script .= "'script'    : '/index.php/Special:UploadifyHandler',";
<       $out .= "<div class='uploadify-file-list-link'><a href='/Special:ListFiles' target='_parent'>";
>       $out .= "<div class='uploadify-file-list-link'><a href='/index.php/Special:ListFiles' target='_parent'>";
and create an additional folder `~/docs/extensions/Uploadify/upload'. After that it works on IE, not on Firefox :-(

Tobias, I am experiencing the same problems/conditions as Fvue mentioned in our installation but have not edited uploadify.php as he recommends, awaiting your (the author's) recommendation. Thank you.

Tobias, same issue. Script would fail to upload anything, saying root/extensions/Uploadify/upload was not a valid directory. I created it. Script would then go through the motions, letting me select multiple files and displaying a progress bar showing them upload...but...they didn't. They're not in the images folder nor in the newly created uploads folder nor anywhere.
Fvue's "index.php" addition merely made the List Files link stop working for me, though I'm pretty sure that is just because of my implementation of ShortURLs.

I second this. Gets to show me the URL, but no files are actually uploaded. Tried file permissions. MKRD info 02:31, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
Doesn't work for me either. I get the blank page all right however nothing special happens when going to the upload page, just the old stuff. 11:56, 2 June 2011 (UTC)
Same for me, doesn't work, blank page shows all right but nothing more than that (I'm using pretty urls). 17:46, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

Messing up the skinEdit

Messing up the skin (no matter if I select monobook or vector), and not working. Had to change the Special pages links to use /index.php/ as well, but did not get me too far. It's a shame, as i would LOVE that functionality (and it would make my users happy, as this is one of the biggest points of critics) -- 15:18, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

btw, working for me now — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

does not works in FireFoxEdit

I found this extension does not works in FireFox. How to make it work well in FireFox? It throw HTTP Error. I think it can't find the End-back script file. Anyone can help me? — Preceding unsigned comment added by WesleyZhang (talkcontribs)

error: The requested URL /Special:ListFiles was not found on this serverEdit

I installed 0.2.0 on a german version of Mediawiki 1.17.0.

Sidebar appears in Firefox, Chrome and IE

When I leftclick on "Dateiliste" in Chrome and Firefox I get an error:

 The requested URL /Special:ListFiles was not found on this server.

In IE it's just 404.

In includes/specials there is a file: SpecialListfiles.php. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chilobo (talkcontribs)

Missing /upload directoryEdit

By default, this extension is missing the /upload directory that it requires. Otherwise, the following errors are shown:

 Warning: move_uploaded_file(/.../htdocs/wiki/extensions/Uploadify/upload/mp3.jpg) [function.move-uploaded-file]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /.../htdocs/wiki/extensions/Uploadify/UploadifyHandler.php on line 27 
 Warning: move_uploaded_file() [function.move-uploaded-file]: Unable to move '/tmp/phpT2Vbnf' to '/.../htdocs/wiki/extensions/Uploadify/upload/mp3.jpg' in /.../htdocs/wiki/extensions/Uploadify/UploadifyHandler.php on line 27

beautiful ideaEdit

I think this is a beautiful idea, I realize this is beta, and I REALLY want this extension to work.

Emailed the author, messaged the author, and will see if I can contact the author on wikipedia.

I also added two templates showing that this extension does not work, and there is no current support by creator. Igottheconch 07:16, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

Creator of this extension has either no account on wikipedia, or a different username: [1] Igottheconch 07:25, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
Yes, he does, but I guess you found him already. Did you have a look at github? Somebody created a fork there in order to fix this extension. You may perhaps give this version a try. Cheers --[[kgh]] 11:57, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

Need more instructionsEdit

When I activate this extension, I get a new section in the left-hand navbar with the header "upload file", a button labeled "Browse...", and a link to Special:ListFiles. If I drag/drop files onto the button, text showing how many files have been dropped (e.g. "6 file") appears to the right of the button (possibly cut off a bit). So far so good (layout issues aside).

The problem is: how do I actually upload the files? There's no "Upload" button or link.

Also, the Special:ListFiles page gives me an error, but I think that must be a problem with my wiki.

Any information would be appreciated.
