Glossaries in Semantic MediaWiki

A simple glossary system for Semantic MediaWiki that lets you define key terms for use in technical documentation etc.

A term can be referenced from anywhere in the wiki with {{defined term inline|term}}. This results in the term being displayed in a distinct style (green for instance) and linked to the term’s wikipage. When a user hovers over the link, a tooltip is displayed that contains the term’s definition.

Software required: MediaWiki, ParserFunctions, SemanticMediaWiki, SemanticForms.

Pages required:

  1. Defined terms
  2. Template:Defined term
  3. Template:Defined term inline
  4. Form:Defined term
  5. Property:Definition
  6. MediaWiki:Common.css (to change the style of the inline terms)
  7. MediaWiki:Common.js (to fix the tooltip display)
  8. Category:Defined terms (no content actually required, but probably should at least be categorized)
  9. Data pages
