Forum:How to Add licences for mediawiki uploads?

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Hi!

Please refer to the following image: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiversity/en/9/99/Special_upload_form.png

When uploading media on wikipedia, it asks which license to select: GDPL, CC etc But on my wiki there are no choices except for "Licensing, None selected".

I see rationalwiki is also using media licenses.

I am trying to create a wiki but I don't know how to populate this drop down box. Any help would be appreciated.

I even asked this question on mwusers.com http://www.mwusers.com/forums/showthread.php?16103-License-for-uploading-media but no answers.

Thanks. — Unsigned, by: Framebuffer / talk / contribs

We created MediaWiki:Licenses which gave us a drop down menu. You have to create the templates still. - π 10:50, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
You might need an extension too. Nx will be here in a minute to tell you. - π 10:52, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
