Query depth

There is a limit on how large and complex SMW queries can be; you can use format=debug to get an idea what is happening with the query.

Some ways to solve this problem:

  • reduce the number of conditions in the query
  • reduce the number of subqueries (i.e. <q></q>
  • summarize common conditions into a concept
  • use a lua module for further iteration purposes

Redirect pages may cause issues with properties

Can occur due to:

  • moving pages (with properties) and leaving a redirect
  • editing redirect pages
  • deleting pages that contain redirects

Solution (steps):

  1. validate the properties on the real page are set as they should
    1. if missing or incorrect properties are present, null-edit the page
    2. if this is still the case, do a minor edit on the page such as adding a space

Properties or values were changed in a template but they don't show up in the properties

Such changes generally take a while (up to several hours) to go though, esp. on templates that are used in many places.

Solutions:

  • Just wait it out (preferred)
  • perform null-edits (edit with no changes) on all pages using the template
