Description Duncan Harris 2005-07-04 17:01:40 UTC
From [[WP:RD]]

This bug doesn't affect wikipedia, but other wikis can link to images elsewhere.  Bug reported to 
WP:RD with the following text:

"On my mediawiki site, an simple external image code like works, but 
the gallery tag <gallery></gallery> doesn't work. How do I do it? My 
problem is that I already have a hundred file on the server but outside the wiki system and I don't 
want to upload them one by one to the wiki again.

I think it's a good idea for mediawiki to support thumbnail for external images and images haven't been imported in the directory but are available in the image path. This does not affect wikipedia but it is nice for corporate or other uses of mediawiki. I think this possibly had better have a global variable to be enabled. this variable can be sth like $wgAllowThumbnailForAllImages and parser should be able to parse gallery for external images and have support for one of [[image:http://image_address.jpg]] or <img src=".../>  too.
