Cannot upload from mobile

When I click on the non-free upload button, I am redirected back to this page and never offered the upload form. Same result on Chrome. Android Firefox and Android Chrome, Samsung Galaxy S22 5G. Pingnova (talk) 01:32, 23 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Hmm, I'm experiencing the same thing. Presumably there is some recent change that is causing this. Anyone able to pinpoint? {{u|Sdkb}}talk 03:08, 23 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]
It seems like the Please explain what exact purpose this file will serve in the article. box was broken at some point. I don't see any recent edits to the js or css. The only recent edit is by Izno Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk) 07:21, 23 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]
This was fixed for awhile but I'm having the same issue again. @Matma Rex or @Izno could this be from the recent change? Pingnova (talk) 19:44, 1 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Seems extremely unlikely. If my change broke something, it would be problems with the actual upload, rather than the form not loading. As a wild guess, maybe this is the same problem as Wikipedia:Village pump (technical)#Editor stopped working? Matma Rex talk 22:24, 5 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
I checked my settings per the link you shared, doesn't seem to be the issue. I switched from en.m. to desktop, just en., and I could use the form finally. It must be an issue with the mobile web version. Pingnova (talk) 19:24, 7 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
me too. i thought it was my problem. anyway then how people upload non free pics still now? Arismauve (talk) 10:08, 8 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
The solution that works for me is switching to the desktop version. The non-free upload form worked on "desktop version" from my smartphone browser. Click "upload a non-free file" at the URL Not, just Pingnova (talk) 23:48, 20 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
this happened to me too, recently on 26 April 2024, when I clicked the "upload a non-free image" button, the button doesn't work, please fix this issue SleepingJoe (talk) 03:22, 26 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]


Should we add an campaign to create an account when an anonymous user sees the page? Why is this page fully protected anyways, and not template protected as in Article Wizard? Toadette (Happy Thanksgiving!) 08:33, 25 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]

 Not done If I visit WP:File Upload Wizard while logged out and try to upload a file it given the appropriate error message (" You are not currently logged in. Sorry, in order to use this uploading script and to upload files, you need to be logged in with your named account. Please log in and then try again."). If you want something else changed you will have to specify the exact wikitext to add. * Pppery * it has begun... 18:36, 25 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Cannot upload using Android browser

Whenever I open Wikipedia's File upload wizard on an Android browser (Google Chrome), and click on "upload a non-free file", the page just reloads and nothing else happens. Cannot upload a non-free file from Android browser. This is happening from a very long time. When I open the same website using a PC, I can upload non-free files easily. It seems to be an issue with mobile version of the site. Kindly look into this issue. Thanks. Doraemon Lover 12 (talk) 15:22, 29 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
