Description Lijealso 2006-10-29 01:54:03 UTC
The portuguese language wikipedia ( decided to disable
local file uploads


Also decided to leave just one link in the toolbox, related to file uploads. In
this moment, there are 2 links related to file upload:

Carregar arquivo (upload file) >
Carregar no Commons (upload in Commons) >

The community decided to leave just one link, like this:

Carregar no Commons

linking to a local help page:

Be patient.  Shell requests are mostly done in batches, so it will probably be a
short while before this is implemented (and posting here won't hurry things along).

There's some kind of JavaScript magic mucking with the upload links, you may wish to remove that and let the native link to Commons 
Comment 5 Lijealso 2006-11-03 19:11:34 UTC
I think the JavaScript is now ok.

The only thing that must be done is to change the link


so that the Carregar arquivo (upload file) in the toolbox always links to the
local help page specified above

That was the pt.wikipedia community decision over here:
