Attachments

< Manual:Extension


The extension SocialWikiPage allows users to attach a file directly to a wiki page.

Attaching a file

To create the first attachment at the bottom of a wiki page, open the attachments area by clicking on the "plus" button.

On the attachments page you can add a new attachment:

(1) Add existing file: Click the plus button to add a file that has already been uploaded to the wiki.

(2) Upload a new attachment: Click the upload area or drag the file into the upload field to upload a new attachment to the wiki.

Deleting an attachment

To delete an attachment, go to the attachments page and click on the Delete button in the actions menu of the attachment. Deleting an attachment on a page does not delete the file itself from the wiki.

Grouped attachments

Clicking the Edit button in the actions menu of an attachment allows you to group more attachments with it. When you group attachments, they are:

  • displayed together on the page
  • deleted together from the page
  • considered one entity for commenting, recommending, linking, and watching (as social entity)

Styling

By default, the icons for the attachments are shown in grey with a small label and a large icon. By updating the file MediaWiki:Common.css, the styles for the attachments can be adjusted as needed. This requires administrator rights.

Add the following styles:

/* Anhänge */
.bs-social-entity-attachment-wrapper {background: transparent;}
.bs-social-entity-content-attachments .bs-social-entity-attachment-file a span::before {line-height: inherit;font-size: 80px;}
.bs-social-entity-content-attachments .bs-social-entityattachment-unknown a span::before  {font-family:fontawesome; content:"\f016"; color: #695f5c;}
.bs-social-entity-content-attachments .bs-social-entityattachment-pdf a span::before  {font-family:fontawesome; content:"\f1c1"; color: #e12025;}
