Check usage and version matrix.

The SMWCollaboration extension enables the commenting and rating of wiki articles. Comments can be managed and retrieved via semantic queries.




The extension is activated by adding the following lines to LocalSettings.php:

include_once('extensions/Collaboration/includes/CE_Initialize.php'); enableCollaboration();

Import of the ontology[edit]

The Collaboration extension comes with an own small ontology to provide functionality for displaying and querying existing comments and some icons.

For that go to Special:Import, select and upload '/extensions/Collaboration/import/collaboration.xml'

To use the delivered icons you need to upload the following files in your wiki: '/extensions/Collaboration/skins/icons/bad_active.png' '/extensions/Collaboration/skins/icons/neutral_active.png' '/extensions/Collaboration/skins/icons/good_active.png' '/extensions/Collaboration/skins/icons/defaultuser.gif' '/extensions/Collaboration/skins/icons/Comment_icon_crystal.png' Please be sure that you keep the original file names.

Now you can enter {{ShowComments|show=True}} to any article where you want to get a list of all 'related comments' and a form that allows you to enter new comments.


All configuration options are defined and described in /includes/CE_Initialize.php.

To reformat the style of existing comments or of the comment form, use the provided Cascading Style Sheet in '/skins' directory.

Configuration parameters[edit]



{{ShowComments|show=True}} causes error message

Fatal error: Call to a member function getValue() on a non-object in /home/content/50/8262350/html/wiki/wiki/extensions/SemanticMediaWiki/includes/SMW_QueryProcessor.php on line 116
