Adding tooltips
Adding an icon with a tooltip
Further Information
Provided by: Semantic MediaWiki
Minimum version: 1.4.0
Maximum version: still supported
Function: yes
Tag: no
Name: #info
Table of Contents

The #info parser function allows to add tooltips containing additional information or warnings.

Syntax[edit]

{{#info: <text> | <icon> }}

Parameters[edit]

Text[edit]

The first parameter displays the text in the #info bubble and should only contain inline HTML elements. There is limited support for wikitext formatting such as bold, italics and internal links. No paragraphs, tables, lists or any other block elements are allowed. One should also avoid using empty lines (because empty line will terminate one paragraph and start another one) and equal signs (see the tips section). Refraining from those guidelines could lead to incorrect HTML code and rendering (e. g. part of text after empty line could be rendered in the page, not in the bubble).

Icon[edit]

In case a second parameter is passed onto the #info parser function, it will influence the display of the icon. If an incorrect parameter is used then the parameter will be silently ignored, and the default info icon will be displayed instead. Since Semantic MediaWiki 3.0.0Released on 11 October 2018 and compatible with MW 1.27.0 - 1.31.x. the icon set was changed to use flat icons. Also the iconography changed as described in the following table:1

Allowed values are:

Icon Description (SMW ≥ 3.0.0) Description (SMW < 3.0.0) Example
info A blue icon with exclamation mark; default A blue icon with question mark; default test
note A blue icon with question mark. A orange icon with exclamation mark. test
warning A orange icon with exclamation mark. A yellow icon with exclamation mark. test
error A red icon with hyphen. A yellow icon with exclamation mark. test
