Integrating the form edit mode

< Manual:Semantic MediaWiki‎ | Examples‎ | Customer data


With the page Special:CreateCategory, we now connect the category Customer data with the form Customer data.

This adds a form edit link to all pages that use the template Customer data. Additionally, it makes it possible to list pages that include customer data all throughout the wiki.

Note: If you do not want to use a category to make the "form edit" option available on a page, you can also associate the form with a namespace or simply add the form reference directly to the template. For more information see the instructions on mediawiki.org
