$smwgParserFeatures is a configuration parameter that sets the behaviour of the features related to the parsing of annotations on pages. The configuration parameter was introduced in Semantic MediaWiki 3.0.0Released on 11 October 2018 and compatible with MW 1.27.0 - 1.31.x.1 and deprecated the configuration parameters as indicated in the section on available options below.

The deprecated configuration settings as indicated in the section on available options should be migrated to this configuration parameter in "LocalSettings.php" since they will be removed with the release of Semantic MediaWiki 3.1.0Released on and compatible with . in late 2018.1

Default setting[edit]

$smwgParserFeatures = SMW_PARSER_STRICT | SMW_PARSER_INL_ERROR | SMW_PARSER_HID_CATS;

This means that the three respective features as explained in the following sections on available options are enabled.

Available options[edit]

The options enabled by default are highlighted bold.
  • SMW_PARSER_NONE – Disables query features related to the parsing of annotations on pages
  • SMW_PARSER_STRICT – Sets that strictness should be enforced during the parsing of annotations on pages
NoteNote: This option replaces configuration parameter $smwgEnabledInTextAnnotationParserStrictModeSets whether strictness should be enforced during the annotation parsing process.
  • SMW_PARSER_INL_ERROR – Sets that warnings are displayed in wikitext right after the problematic input in annotations
NoteNote: This option replaces configuration parameter $smwgInlineErrorsSets whether warnings should be shown right after problematic annotations.
  • SMW_PARSER_HID_CATS – Sets that categories marked with the __HIDDENCAT__ behaviour switch are omitted from the annotation process.
NoteNote: This option replaces configuration parameter $smwgShowHiddenCategoriesSets whether to omit categories marked with the HIDDENCAT behaviour switch from the annotation process.
  • SMW_PARSER_UNSTRIP – Sets that strip markers for properties of datatype "Text"Holds text of arbitrary length may be stored within property values
NoteNote: This option replaces configuration parameter $smwgDecodeTextAnnotationWithStripMarkerSets whether strip markers for properties of datatype "Text" may be stored within property values.
NoteNote: This option replaces configuration parameter $smwgLinksInValuesSets whether internal links in values for properties of datatype "Text" may be stored within property values.
For further information on the available options listed above see the documentation pages of the respective deprecated configuration parameters as stated above.

Changing the default setting[edit]

To modify this configuration setting, add one of the following lines to your "LocalSettings.php" file after the enableSemantics() call:


Removing a specific feature related to the parsing of annotations on pages

To disable a specific feature e.g. that hidden categories should not be shown just redefine the configuration parameter by defining it without including the corresponding constant as shown in the above section on available options:

$smwgParserFeatures = SMW_PARSER_STRICT | SMW_PARSER_INL_ERROR;

or alternatively remove the option from the existing definition of the configuration parameter like e.g.

$smwgParserFeatures = ( $smwgParserFeatures & ~SMW_PARSER_HID_CATS );
NoteNote: Please use parentheses2 when combining different bit-operations to avoid a possible mismatch.
Adding or removing the SMW_PARSER_HID_CATS option of this configuration parameter requires maintenance script "rebuildData.php"Allows to rebuild all the semantic data for a selected data backend/store to be run.


Adding a specific feature related to the parsing of annotations on pages

To enable a specific feature e.g. that strip markers for properties of datatype "Text"Holds text of arbitrary length may be stored within property values just redefine the configuration parameter by defining it including the corresponding constant as shown in the above section on available options:

$smwgParserFeatures = SMW_PARSER_STRICT | SMW_PARSER_INL_ERROR | SMW_PARSER_HID_CATS | SMW_PARSER_UNSTRIP;

or alternatively add the option to the existing definition of the configuration parameter like e.g.

$smwgParserFeatures = ( $smwgParserFeatures | SMW_PARSER_UNSTRIP );
NoteNote: Please use parentheses2 when combining different bit-operations to avoid a possible mismatch.


Disabling all features related to the parsing of annotations on pages

To disable all browse features just remove all constants as shown in the above section on available options:

$smwgParserFeatures = '';

or add the constant for disabling all features related to the parsing of annotations on pages

$smwgParserFeatures = SMW_PARSER_NONE;
Adding or removing the SMW_PARSER_HID_CATS option of this configuration parameter requires maintenance script "rebuildData.php"Allows to rebuild all the semantic data for a selected data backend/store to be run. This requirement is not applicable to all other options to this configuration parameter.
