Unused filesEdit

We build a business wiki with MediaWiki 1.81. We have created ~250 articles and link a lot of pdfs.

The syntax is

 Example file

When I choose on "Special pages" the item "Unused files", all these files are shown. When I look at the file usage of a file, I read: "There are no pages that link to this file."

I thougt, all these files should not be listed, because they are linked on several pages. Am I wrong?

Upload a file without the toolboxEdit

How do I upload a file (or image) if the upload option is not available under the toolbox section?

Type Special:Upload in the search box. Hamilton Abreu 14:27, 7 July 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Hello, Whenever i upload on my wiki an image with special characters in its name (eg Alpiner Gebirgsgürtel.png) it is not displayed afte upload and the file is not accessible. Upload result page shows:

Fichier:Alpiner Gebirgsgürtel.png
Pas de plus haute résolution disponible.
Alpiner_Gebirgsgürtel.png‎ (948 × 751 pixels, taille du fichier : 1,22 Mio, type MIME : image/png)

If I click on the link :

 Not Found
 The requested URL /wiki/images/e/e1/Alpiner_Gebirgsgürtel.png was not found on this server. 

Seems this is a character coding issue . I'm on Windows 7 64 / MW 1.17.0 Phcalle 06:57, 30 September 2011 (UTC)[reply]
