This is a simple extension to upload multiple photos at once. It makes as much use of Special:Upload as it can. There are some issues when a warning and an error is encountered in one upload attempt.


  • PHP 5.x
  • This has been tested on Mediawiki 1.6.7, so it should work on later versions.


Download the extension from here, in your base Mediawiki directory. It will place SpecialMultipleUpload.php in your extensions directory.

Add the line


to your LocalSettings.php file.


You can change the maximum number of files a user can upload at once by changing $wgMaxUploadFiles. Then all you have to do is put a link somewhere to Special:MultipleUpload.
