Working with MediaWiki[edit]

Working with MediaWiki is a general reference guide for MediaWiki, which provides information for both beginning and advanced MediaWiki administrators. Around one third of the book covers Semantic MediaWiki and its related extensions. This book was written by Yaron Koren and released in November 2012 as well as updated in 2014. The second update of 2017 no longer covers Semantic MediaWiki.

Quick reference[edit]

The Semantic MediaWiki quick reference is a two-page "cheat sheet" that was created and maintained by Yaron Koren, and it can be used, modified and re-published under the Creative Commons by-3.0 license. It was last updated on October 10, 2013.
