Display title

The output (aka display) characteristics of a title page can be altered through various means in MediaWiki including:

  • Add {{DISPLAYTITLE:Bar}} to page Foo to display Bar instead of the "real" title Foo
  • Employ a template to alter the output as part of a query request

Using the DISPLAYTITLE on a page shows the intention to alter its display characteristics which by default (as of Semantic MediaWiki 2.4.01) is transferred and interpreted as preferred caption for those entities that make use of the DISPLAYTITLE.

A page that contains a DISPLAYTITLE annotation will automatically set the Display title of property and indicates to all Semantic MediaWiki processes (Special:Browse, query results etc.) to prefer the DISPLAYTITLE over the real title (it also includes setting the SORTKEY, if no other key is defined).
