Whe I try to dowload HTML Tags, I get the "Semantic DrillDown" extension... Bad download link ?[edit]

At the end of the sentence : You can download the HTML Tags code, in .tgz format, here.

Oops! That was a copy/paste error. Thanks for pointing that out; it's fixed now. Yaron Koren (talk) 17:22, 4 November 2012 (UTC)Reply

Ok thanks it works great ! both download and extension !

It's great to hear that the extension is working for you! Yaron Koren (talk) 13:22, 5 November 2012 (UTC)Reply

Application example : displaying a web site screenshot thumbnail[edit]

This extension allows to easily display a website screenshot thumnail with the help of a website screenshot provider.

You can see an exemple here

Cool! Yes, I guess there's no way right now in MediaWiki to have an external image that links to another URL. Yaron Koren (talk) 19:54, 5 November 2012 (UTC)Reply

About Microdata[edit]

I originally figured that it might be an idea to add this reference since the intro already referred to some kind of Metadata. However I was indeed not telling the whole story. Most Microdata may be added without using this extension, but I think one is lost when trying to add Breadcrumbs data without using this extension.

Oh, okay - I really don't know that much about microdata stuff. I just added in a modified version of what you wrote - hopefully it make sense... Yaron Koren (talk) 00:17, 23 May 2014 (UTC)Reply
That's great and thank you for improving the note. I think this will also increase the overall usage of this extension. No worries about microdata. I just started to dig in into it. It's another way to help search engines to grab content more meaningful way. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 08:38, 23 May 2014 (UTC)Reply

Doesn't work with nested tags[edit]

When you use nested tags, the first </htmltag> closes the first opened tag, and not the last opened one. As a second point, the inner <htmltag> doesn't close, instead the </htmltag> is written in the document Example:

<htmltag tagname="x">
<htmltag tagname="y">

results in

</htmltag> <--written, not as a html tag
That's too bad... I never thought about the nested thing. I can't think of any way to that get working easily, unfortunately; you may have to use some other method, like the Widgets extension. Yaron Koren (talk) 01:32, 8 July 2014 (UTC)Reply
You can always use the wiki tag parser function:
{{#tag:htmltag|<htmltag tagname="Y"></htmltag>

Specific Pattern in Attributes[edit]


Is it possible to allow a certain pattern for attributes? E.g if I wanted to allow a specific domain to be in iframe tag's src attribute.-- 09:11, 5 November 2016 (UTC)Reply

No, unfortunately. Yaron Koren (talk) 02:36, 8 November 2016 (UTC)Reply
Any plans on including the feature? --Id508317 (talk) 12:29, 8 December 2016 (UTC)Reply
No - although I'd be happy to accept a patch that does this. Yaron Koren (talk) 13:52, 8 December 2016 (UTC)Reply

how should do to add <div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/JobPosting"> ?[edit]

how should do to add <div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/JobPosting"> ?

Consider using Manual:Hooks/OutputPageBodyAttributes. Here's what I did to add support to Extension:BreadCrumbs2 to make it a WebPage.
$wgHooks['OutputPageBodyAttributes'][] = 'addBreadcrumbSchemaBodyAttributes';

function addBreadcrumbSchemaBodyAttributes( OutputPage $out, Skin $skin, &$bodyAttrs ) {
        $bodyAttrs['itemscope'] = '';
        $bodyAttrs['itemtype'] = 'http://schema.org/WebPage';

        return true;
... $breadcrumbHTML =  Xml::openElement( 'div', array ( 'id' => 'breadcrumbs2', 'itemprop' => 'breadcrumb' ) ) . $breadcrumb . Xml::closeElement( 'div' );
You seem to need to use the empty string and be happy with itemscope="" as a result, it doesn't accept null or false - this shows up OK on Google's structured data tester, though it didn't seem to work so well on the Rich Results Tool. GreenReaper (talk) 21:43, 22 February 2021 (UTC)Reply

id is missing[edit]


sadly it seems, that a set id attribute will not transfered trough the parser. Is there any way to provide this? --Gunnar.offel (talk) 00:47, 18 December 2019 (UTC)Reply

ZIP Download Link[edit]

I have exchanged the ZIP-Download link to the GIT-Master Zip link. If it is not correct please change it to whatever is correct, but the version which was downloaded before that was not working at all. --DesignerThan (talk) 13:02, 6 January 2021 (UTC)Reply

Indeed the link was outdated. However changing to master unconditionally is not a good idea either in case of possible breaking changes in the future. Thus I changed to the hash of current master. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 22:25, 6 January 2021 (UTC)Reply

Not restricted HTML Code as content[edit]

Hello, for a project I need to have a span inside of a button tag which is outputed with the HTMLTag Parser function. Is it possible to do that? That is the example code. <htmltag tagname="button" class="dropdown-toggle dropdown-toggle-split" type="button" id="dropdownAnswerKeys" data-toggle="dropdown" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">Toggle Dropdown</htmltag>

Thank's for helping me. --DesignerThan (talk) 21:51, 3 May 2021 (UTC)Reply

Wikicode not parsed by design?[edit]

Is it by design that a wikicode within the tag is not parsed?

Code like:

<htmltag tagname="cite">- This links to [[Some page]]</htmltag>

results in

- This links to [[Some page]]

and the wikilink is not resolved. Is this an intended behavior? --Luca Mauri (talk) 08:05, 18 September 2021 (UTC)Reply

Same questions here. Seems weird to allow some html tags but at the same tim undo wikitext in the tags. Eric L8s (talk) 17:29, 10 February 2023 (UTC)Reply
+1 from me. BjsMimot (talk) 06:14, 5 September 2023 (UTC)Reply
Sorry, I might have missed all this previous discussion. Why would you need to use <htmltag> for something like <cite>? (Which, by the way, is a tag function, not an HTML tag.) Yaron Koren (talk) 13:33, 5 September 2023 (UTC)Reply
