Forums: Index WoWWiki technical SMW and references

Seems the SMW doesn't care all that much to references and becomes a problem when references are needed in the infoboxes such as Orgrimmar, where the population is disputed numbers. What's going to be the best way to handle this? User:Coobra/Sig4 07:02, August 20, 2010 (UTC)

Split refs off into a separate parameter. --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C58,926 contributions and counting) 12:01, August 20, 2010 (UTC)
Alternatively, you can ensure the placement of the information and citation into the article proper. Somewhat different than normally how we work here, but that's what Wikipedia does (even without being SMWized, the infobox is a summary for them rather than a crucial element, as with our infoboxes). --Sky (t · c) 13:22, August 20, 2010 (UTC)
I like that way too. --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C58,926 contributions and counting) 13:30, August 20, 2010 (UTC)
A third way that you might want to try: Use the {{#tag}} parser function. I'm not sure that will work, but it's worth a shot. --Sky (t · c) 00:03, August 21, 2010 (UTC)
Hmm, I decided to just make it simple. Source is already at the bottom of the infobox, so abbreviations are all that are needed. User:Coobra/Sig4 04:45, August 25, 2010 (UTC)

Arrgh. Took me a minute to distinguish between SMW (Semantic MediaWiki) and SWM (MediaWiki Editor). --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 23:59, August 24, 2010 (UTC)
