Hi, I'd like the users to see an information template (table with fields for description, author, source, licence, etc.) by default when uploading images. How can I configure this? Thanks for your help. --Weas-El Talk|Contribs 13:48, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
- To be more precise: The content of "MediaWiki:Uploadtext" is displayed above the edit box. But that's not what I mean. I'm talking about default text in the edit box. --Weas-El Talk|Contribs 14:02, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
- You want to use preload. I don't quite understand how it works, but to give an example, when you create a new forum thread here, the header and comment line are preloaded. I think you can do it for any text if you define it somewhere, but I don't know much about it and have never been able to make it work right.
- Try Special:AllMessages. The defualt wiki messages that show in the upload form are burried there somewhere. Can be edited, although adding more functionalities to it can be tricky. Sovq 15:11, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
