Still not understanding how to create semantic tags outside of an info box. --OmniMediaGroup 10:29, 9 January 2007 (PST)

Quick answer

Just type
[[city:=San Francisco]]
to create the attribute San Francisco or
[[Subject Interest::Skiing]]
to get the relation Skiing.

As an added plus, you can add more information to attributes so that they record not only the actual value, but wikilink back to a main or directory page. Example:

[[city:=San Francisco|[[Directory:San Francisco|The City]]]]

produces [[city:=San Francisco|The City]].

Notice how traditional wikilink pipes work as usual? For more information, you can check this page as well. Centiare 10:49, 9 January 2007 (PST)

Another Answer

You can just "do" them, within the text, inline. For example, if I were to mention Van Doren Oil, I could also just as easily mention [[Legal_Name:=Van Doren Oil Company|Van Doren Oil Legal Semantics]] and sneakily squeeze in a Legal_Name attribute, or mention [[|Van Doren Oil Website Semantics]] and sneak in a Web attribute.
Or, you can just create a sematic "field" in an out-of-the-way place at the end of the article, like this:


  • Year started -- [[Year_Started:=1939|1939]]
  • Primary NAICS code -- 45431

Either way, it should automatically create the RDF "lookup table" at the bottom of this page. As an added bonus, this is what starts the Google SEO algorithm a-buzzing. --MyWikiBiz 10:57, 9 January 2007 (PST)

Humble Request for help with Reference Tags

I am new to the Wiki/Centiare language and am slowly practicing with my own directory Directory:Garreth_Westwood so that I can cut my teeth on that before I start adding articles, etc.

I am having problems with two References that I have in my intro paragraph. The References are showing up as (1) Template:Cite Web. What am I doing wrong? :( Thanks, Garreth Bnagroup 16:40, 8 March 2007 (PST)

Garreth, I took a quick look and it's just a small edit - nothing major. However, I'm running out the door right now, but Garrett is a super wikipedian so I'm sure he can help. I'll give him a ping to see if he's around. If he can't help you right off, I'll go in and clean it up after I return. Snerfling 17:48, 8 March 2007 (PST)
