How can I get the image author (for attribution) via the API
2009-07-02 16:06:01 GMT
I have spent a lot of time in the forum and now have a working query that gets me all the information I need (a list of images plus other info). However, I need to also get the image author so that I can have the proper attribution. Have tried everything but cannot get that piece of data. Am I missing something? This is the query that I am using to get the images: http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/api.php?action=query&generator=images&prop=images|imageinfo&gimlimit=50&iiprop=url|size|comment&format=xml&iiurlwidth=240&titles=Barack%20Obama As an example, for this file http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:BarackObama2005portrait.jpg, I would want to get back the text "United States Senate", which is listed right next to the Author field. Thanks a lot! -- -- View this message in context: http://www.nabble.com/How-can-I-get-the-image-author-%28for-attribution%29-via-the-API-tp24309511p24309511.html Sent from the WikiMedia API mailing list archive at Nabble.com.
