Table of Contents

The result format count is used to show the number of results that a query in Semantic MediaWiki would return.1 The result is simply a number. The computation of this number usually will use larger limits than the default limit set with the $smwgQMaxInlineLimit configuration parameter for inline queries, so even large numbers may be reported by "count". Also the result cannot be restricted using the "limit" standard parameter to inline queries, i.e. |limit=10 will not work.


There are no parameters specific to the count format. In fact, most standard parameters do not make sense either, since the output is very specific.
