There is a collision between the namespace "Property" of LinkedWiki and Semantic MediaWiki.

In LinkedWIki, you can disable this namespace by removing from extension.json this part:

    "id": 10020,
    "constant": "NS_PROPERTY",
    "name": "Property",
    "protection": "data-edit"

This namespace is optional in LinkedWiki.

@Karima Thanks for clarifying the issue. Under regular circumstances sysops should not manipulate "exentsion.json" but do their configuration in "LocalSettings.php". Do you plan to add an configuration parameter that allows to disable defining the "Property" namespace via "LocalSettings.php". Since quite some people appear to use both extensions at same time ...

@Kghbln For the moment, this namespace is for an experimental part of the extension.
Probably I will remove it in the next version and I will use only the namespace schema.

@Karima Thanks for the info!
