I arrived to the page of the predefined and special property "Is property group", but it isn't in this page. Should it be listed here? Or is any reason to not be?
Thanks in advance!
The simple reason is that I have not yet had time to document it. Indeed an extra page for this special property is still to be created on this wiki. After that this special property will show up in the list. If you would like to give it a shot ...
I can try to help with this task as far as my abilities allow me. I am going to create the page to document this property, based on the Github's PR you shared. If you check the page it will be created and find some error in how it has been documented or something else, tell me to learn and solve it.
Hello, I think the special property "Page has default form" is missing in the list. There is no such usual page as Help:Special property Page has default form like with the others. Am I right or missing something? Is it maybe deprecated?
This is a special property provided by the Semantic Forms extension. So far only special properties provided by the Semantic MediaWiki extension itself are documented on this website.
Yes, that's true! It's also linked on mediawiki.org here and here (via the extension}. On semantic-mediawiki.org here's a link from the Property:Page has default form property page to the special properties, although it's not listed there. As in the "component" property in the list there is also SD and Semantic Results Formats, maybe Semantic Forms' special properties also could find their way into this list in the end, especially as SF is dependent on SMW (which would actually mean, SMW's properties should rather be on SF's site…) So, I guess, fine for now! Thanks!
I think the main purpose of these links is to allow people to grasp the purpose of special properties itself rather than linking to an extra documentation of the given special property. To have all special properties explained here is possible too but has indeed just not been done yet. I have added a note to the page making this more obvious.
I am afraid that Property:Has component is just a plain "bin" for everything that is fed into it, so Semantic Forms was not mentioned in this respect so far. However, thank you for the pointer.
