- This extension is enabled by default on Wikia.
Multiple Upload allows users to upload up to 20 images (for admins) or up to 10 images (for other users) at the same time. It is provided by the MultipleUpload extension, written by Travis Derouin. Autoconfirmed users can use Multiple Upload.
How to use it?
Go to Special:MultipleUpload on your wikia. Click to find the files on your computer and then fill in the summary and licensing information.
By default the files will upload to the same filename as they have on your computer, but you can change this manually if you wish.
When using Multiple Upload, the file upload size limit limits the total size of all the files combined rather than the size per individual file. The current limit is 10 MB for all of the files uploaded together. Thus, Multiple Upload is great for quickly uploading many small files, but not many large ones.
Admins can change the text at the top of the Multiple Upload special page using the system message MediaWiki:Uploadtext.
