Display title

From semantic-mediawiki.org

The display (output) characteristics of a page's title 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}} magic word 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 it.

A page that contains a annotation using the {{DISPLAYTITLE}} magic word will automatically set the "Display title of" special property and indicates to all Semantic MediaWiki processes (special page "Browse"
Shows all properties and their values annotated to a page
, query results etc.) to prefer it over the real title (it also includes setting the {{SORTKEY}} magic word, if no other key is defined).
