Hello,

We are running Mediawiki 1.24.2 on a local wiki. I have installed the
multimediaviewer (media viewer) extension, as well as the beta
functions and commons metadata extensions. However, looking at pictures
on wikipedia, which uses media viewer, not all the control icons on the
right appear.
Looking at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tavistock#/media/File:Tavistoc
k_town_centre.jpg , from the top right, I can see the following icons:
"Close the tool (Esc)"
"Show in full screen"
"Enable or disable Media Viewer"
the right arrow for the next image
(then at the bottom right we have)
"Download this file"
"Share or embed this file".

However, on our wiki I get
"Close the tool (Esc)"
"Show in full screen"
the right arrow for the next image
(then at the bottom right we have)
"Use this file"

My question is why do we see different icons? I installed the extension
for version 1.24 of mediawiki. Could it be that we need to upgrade to
1.26 to see the other icons?



Thanks,

John.
