In this wiki: Property:Has processing error text

The Has processing error text property is a special property in Semantic MediaWiki with a built-in meaning: it contains a textual description of an error. The rationale for this special property is to make issues more visible and to provide better assistance for rectifying the problem.

It was introduced starting with Semantic MediaWiki and is enabled by default. It gets automatically filled with a text describing the error, e.g. an improper annotation, exceeded query limits, issues with the query syntax, etc. as soon as it occurs.

When browsing from a page containing an error via special page "Browse" it can only be accessed via the link provided by special property "Has processing error" to the "container" holding further information about the problem. Click on the search icon search icon right next to the label for the processing error "container" for access.


  • Processing error text within a processing error "container" called "Demo:Berlin" making aware of an improper annotation.
  • Processing error text within a processing error "container" called "Category:Developer documentation" making aware of a failed query.2
