Property links, i.e. linking to property pages can be achieved with regular links, e. g.
[[Property:Population]] creates the link Property:Population. Since Semantic MediaWiki 2.5.0Released on 14 March 2017 and compatible with MW 1.23.0 - 1.29.x. there is an easier way to achieve this using a "no-value annotation". This way a link to a property page can be created that is independent of the language setting.
Creating property links with wiki-text in templates (e.g. for semantic infoboxes or forms) require some additional work, if they are to display tooltips with auto-property descriptions, or to change their preferred label based on user language. For that reason, the special syntax
[[Foo::@@@]] was introduced in Semantic MediaWiki 2.5.0Released on 14 March 2017 and compatible with MW 1.23.0 - 1.29.x.1 to generate a full featured property link for "Foo" property. The tooltips can also be used without actually creating a link 2.
PopulationThe number of inhabitants of some geographical place.
PeopleThe number of inhabitants of some geographical place.
