Namespace Property[edit]

For the cmnamespace property, does it take the namespace's number of its name? --(Havvy) 01:12, 17 September 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It takes one or more numbers: for example, cmnamespace=0|1|2|3. --R'n'B (talk) 11:47, 18 September 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Typo in properties?[edit]

I scratched my head on using this on Wikimedia Commons, but then found that properties such cmtype are actually named gcmtype. -- (talk) 10:07, 27 August 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This is standard for any property retrieved using "generator=foo" as opposed to "titles=foo|bar". See API:Query#Generators for details. --R'n'B (talk) 01:40, 3 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Commons: gcmprop[edit]

This seems to be stuck on default (ids|titles) and does not provide any other returns. Example where timestamp is a requested property but not returned. -- (talk) 22:42, 28 August 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Search a for a page title in a specific category.[edit]

Are we able to query for a keyword under a given category? For example, I would like to query for space until the category keyboard.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 21:53, 27 May 2017

What is the value for PARAM:"cmcontinue":[edit]

I can put value for "cmlimit":50. For "cmcontinue":"?"--Info-farmer (talk) 05:31, 16 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    "action": "query",
    "cmtitle": "Category:Physics",
    "cmlimit": "20",
    "list": "categorymembers",
    "format": "json"

but i am getting the error:

   "KeyError: 'query' "

how can i solve this issue?--Info-farmer (talk) 07:02, 17 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • cmcontinue is not a count. Observe that the original query includes in its json response a value for cmcontinue. That exact value is the one you need to pass in the cmcontinue parameter when making a subsequent query (to continue the query). --Clump (talk) 12:28, 17 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • when i print "DATA = R.json()", i understand my mistake. Thanks indeed for your explanation.--Info-farmer (talk) 01:30, 18 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

a better response schema[edit]

It would be better if the main response schema would look something like:

"query": {
	"categorymembers": {
		"<cmtitle/cmpageid>": [
