Description Jan Kucera (Kozuch) 2013-01-29 17:01:41 UTC
Redirect File: page directly to Wikimedia Commons in case file is streamed from there and no local file copy is available (most images on Wikipedias) because of 2 main reasons:
- Commons categories are not shown on local File: pages
- Commons annotations are not shown on local File: pages

This feature would basically be needed on all Wikimedia wiki projects.
Comment 1 Bawolff (Brian Wolff) 2013-01-30 01:38:51 UTC
Just to clarify, you are asking that

User links to (or goes to) [[File:Example.png]] on en.wikipedia, they end up at http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Example.png instead of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Example.png. (Just want to make sure I understand you correctly. "stream" can sometimes have a different meaning).

Doing this would probably make the "what pages use this file" not have the information for the specific wiki, which might be considered bad. Magically moving the user to the other site could also cause some confusion. People might not realize what happened, etc.

>- Commons categories are not shown on local File: pages
In theory there's nothing preventing us from showing them. How to present them so as not to be confusing is probably the biggest issue.

>- Commons annotations are not shown on local File: pages
annotations are done via js and really don't have much to do with MW. I see no reason why adding the javascript to the local js of the downstream user can't be done (Aka, add the annotation js to [[mediawiki:Common.js]] on wikipedia).

Yes this is what I meant.

Ok, lets do it. I filled another bug for this as bug #38786.

Ok, lets do this too.
Comment 3 Jan Kucera (Kozuch) 2013-01-30 08:32:22 UTC
Sorry that bug goes to annotations of course.
Comment 4 Jan Kucera (Kozuch) 2013-01-30 08:35:45 UTC
Regarding the categories there already is a bug too: bug #18752.
Comment 5 Bawolff (Brian Wolff) 2014-05-22 16:26:47 UTC
I'm taking this bug to just be about redirected users to commons image page. The copy over categories is now a separate bug.

It should perhaps be re-evaluated if we still want to redirect file desc pages to commons. As it stands, we now have

*Multimedia viewer that changes the default viewing of file page experience
*"tabs" on the file page which now point users to commons.

To clarify, that part is out of scope for bugzilla (unless we bring annotations into MediaWiki at some future date). You'd have to ask at local wikipedia
