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 http://www.wikihow.com/x/multipleupload.tar, 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.
