Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


Hi all,

I have created the following page in OSM wiki: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/GOAT_(Geo_Open_Accessibility_Tool) and I was not able to add pictures. Is there a special permission for pictures or can someone tell me how to proceed. Thank you.

I have the same problem. I try to upload an image in the editing mode (via Insert>Media>Upload) but I always get this error: ⧼apierror-permissiondenied⧽.

I am thankful for any help.

On the left hand side of the page there is an "Upload file" entry that you can use to, upload files, and then you just need to link to the URL of the uploaded image in your text.

Note: you need to be logged on for the menu entry to be visible.

Thank you for your answer. I sadly don't have that. This is what I have under tools:
