  • https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:OpenGraphMeta - provides OpenGraph protocol metadata for articles on the wiki for 3rd parties like Facebook to extract. The primary use for this extension is for any wiki that provides its users a button to "Like" pages on the wiki, especially if the wiki uses a custom default skin. As sometimes Facebook can extract undesirable parts from the page (known on some custom skins to potentially extract random images irrelevant to the content) providing this data gives Facebook clean data to display in likes, and cleans up the long title into a pair of clean site and page titles.

Data / semantic

  • https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Page_Schemas - a MediaWiki extension that allows for defining all the schema information about a "class", or data type - for naming, display, data input, and browsing - within a single piece of XML contained within a category page. This XML then is used to generate all the necessary additional pages needed to put the schema into effect, such as template pages and, for instance, if Page Forms is installed, form pages. The XML can be created and edited via a helper form, preventing users from having to generate or modify it manually.Page Schemas allows other extensions to define their own fields to add to the XML, using hooks.

Currently, the following extensions hook into Page Schemas:

  • Cargo
  • Page Forms
  • Semantic MediaWiki
  • Semantic Drilldown
  • Semantic Internal Objects
