Forums: Index > Help desk > Animated files and Instantcommons

(Initial query copied from my talk page - Robin Patterson 05:25, February 15, 2011 (UTC))

I am attempting to upload an animated file for the illustration of the article Yugoslavia which was copied from en:wikipedia. The image is Breakup of Yugoslavia.gif. However, I was able to get only the first image of a series of successive images.

From wiki commons I get the following information

Page url

File url

but I still cannot find I way to load them into Familypedia.

There is also a possibility of linking Familypedia to Instantcommons. The procedure is indicated in$wgUseInstantCommons and would theoretically enable Familypedia to access directly the images from Wikicommons, without uploading all of them, as I am trying to do. However I think that an administrator should decide if this is acceptable or not for Familypedia. I would kindly ask you to help me upload the indicated file and also to decide if direct links to Wikicommons are acceptable. Sincerely Andrei FilottiAfil 05:15, February 15, 2011 (UTC)

  1. The animated map seems to work here! So you may not need any more than what's above. Robin Patterson 05:37, February 15, 2011 (UTC)
  2. mw:Sites_using_InstantCommons says some Wikia sites already use InstantCommons, so I'm sure we would like to and Wikia should be willing to let us. Robin Patterson 05:37, February 15, 2011 (UTC)

InstantCommons now enabled. See Help:Photos. -- Robin Patterson (Talk) 23:46, January 4, 2013 (UTC)
