Properties and #ask queries

RoB wiki uses the Semantic MediaWiki extension. This adds some additional feature to the basic Mediawiki like the Property and #ask features.

One down side here is that Semantic annotations needs to be enables for a given Mediawiki name-space to be able to 1) set Properties in the pages in that name-space, and 2) that #ask queries are limited to returning pages (cataloged) from those Semantic annotations enabled name-spaces.

Current rundown on Semantic annotations per name-space (--.MvGulik. 23:47, 30 November 2017 (EST))

Enabled on:

  • (Main)
  • User
  • Ring of Brodgar.
  • Ring of Brodgar talk. (seems special case)(still off on discussion pages)
  • File (image)
  • Category
  • Type

Not enabled on:

  • Talk (Main talk) ... same on all talk/discussion pages in all parent name-spaces.
  • MediaWiki
  • Template
  • Help
  • Legacy ... ie: no setting of Properties and not returning pages from this name-space in #ask queries.


  • Property
  • Concept

The workaround, when needed (mainly for page administration purposes) is to use Categories and the Category-list pages.
