Creating the display template[edit | edit source]

To create the template, we go to the page Special:Create template. On this page, we have access to the properties that we have already created.

  1. Like in the previous step (creating properties), switch to the Page Forms section on the page Special:SpecialPages.

  2. Define the data fields that you want to use in your template. For each property that you created, you need to have a field in the template.

    • Template name (1): Enter Customer data as name for the template.
    • Category (2): Define a category which will be assigned to all customer pages that use this template. It makes sense to also call this category Customer data.
    • Field name (3): Create a field name for the property Has location. This field name will later be used to connect the template with the data entry form. The name should not contain spaces.
    • Display label (4): This is the field label tha tis shown on the customer pages. It can contain spaces.
    • Semantic property (5): Choose the property Has location that you created in the previous step.
    • Add field (6): Click Add field to create the fields for the properties Has First contact and Has contact person.
  3. Click Save page at the end of the page Seite speichern.


The template is now available and can be viewed in the Template namespace. You do not have to edit the template any further at this point.
