[MediaWiki-l] mediawiki mobile photo upload ?

Michael-352
Hi,

I already asked this on the support desk, as my first try, please excuse the double, but on second thought, i could perhaps reach more people here ?

I am not an admin for any kind of server, computer stuff (starting with linux 10 y ago ) is more or less only a hobby but i might understand some basic language.

We have a tree forum with photo gallery based on a mediawiki installation and started discussing a remodelling of the whole thing. The main issue is mobile usage, since most members want to be able to use their smartphone for anything; and here, the main issue is about uploading photos.

I'm only volunteering to do preliminary research to support the club and their admins who are not so much into computer stuff.

So here is my question: Is there a way to let users upload photos from their smartphone comfortably, e.g. have mobile apps camera do 'send to' -> (mediawiki API) like it is with chat apps ?

Or is there a mobile API which can do this ? i.e. like wikimedia app but freely configurable for other servers and it only needs to do photos.


Any hint appreciated .... Micha

Hi,

You might take a look at the Wikimedia Commons mobile app, which is
available for Android devices in the Google Play store.
