Community Wishlist Survey 2022/Multimedia and Commons/Enable chunked uploads for files that replace existing files

Enable chunked uploads for files that replace existing files

  • Problem: The direct upload of a file that is intended to replace another file always times out for large files because the direct upload mecanism does not chunk the file. The Upload Wizard is not configured to allow the uploader to designate the file as a replacement for an existing file.
  • Proposed solution: Allow chunking in direct upload or add replacement of existing file as an option in Upload Wizard.
  • Who would benefit: All uploaders of large replacement images. Easier replacement of dirty or damaged images.
