Write basic documentation for WikibaseMediaInfo extension
Closed, ResolvedPublic


We want to get a review of the WikibaseMediaInfo extension. For this (but obviously not only for this) we need basic documentation for it on, including:

  • Copy-paste basic page structure from an existing extensions page
  • Introduction, what the extension is about
  • Installation, setup, relevant configuration to get started
  • How to create a MediaInfo page, because this is different
  • Include a screenshot
  • Possibly a FAQ section, what can go wrong
    • Introduce the concept of "virtual" entities

Also documentation in git:

  • Readme
  • Settings

Change 347366 had a related patch set uploaded (by WMDE-leszek):
[mediawiki/extensions/WikibaseMediaInfo@master] Add README file

I've created some basic documentation, including installation and configuration notes.
The documentation has been put into file (, and almost identically reproduced at

README gerrit patch, and the Mediawiki page are ready to be reviewed.

Regarding few things the tickets lists, several remarks:

  • How to create a MediaInfo page, because this is different -> currently no specific section in the docs, although it is mentioned. If required, there could be covered in a more elaborate way.
  • Include a screenshot -> no screenshot of so far. I could go and make a screenshot e.g. of Some concerns:
    • "No label defined (M13)" is not really representative.
    • Also there would be no actual "picture" on the screenshot. It might not be something bad, just want to make it clear.
  • Possibly a FAQ section, what can go wrong -> I don't really know what to put there, so no FAQ so far.

WMDE-leszek moved this task from Review to Backlog on the Wikidata-Former-Sprint-Board board.

So the basic documentation at is there. Still no screenshot - suggestion what to include on it are welcome!
Also no FAQ section but I am not sure if there is a need to have right now.

WMDE-leszek updated the task description. (Show Details)
WMDE-leszek moved this task from Backlog to Done on the Wikidata-Former-Sprint-Board board.

No need for FAQ at this point has been recognized. Screen cap added. Some more polishing of installation instructions, and minor changes to other section of the page.
With all that, this task is considered done.
