In this wiki: Property:Media type

The Media type property is a special property in Semantic MediaWiki with a built-in meaning: it holds the media type of an uploaded file. Thus it only works in namespace "File". This special property is available since Semantic MediaWiki 1.9.1 and it is possible to control if this special property is used or not.1 It is disabled by default. See the help page on the configuration setting $smwgPageSpecialProperties for details on configuring Semantic MediaWiki for special page related properties including "Media type".

It can be used like any other property of datatype "Text". This special property should never be set manually, since Semantic MediaWiki will take care of setting its value. Starting with Semantic MediaWiki 2.2.0 it is no longer possible to manually add values for this special property.2

See the property page "Media type" to see which pages use this special property on this wiki. See also the page about media types for an overview of values this special property may hold.

This documentation page applies to all SMW versions from 1.9.1 to the most current version.
