Semantic Mediawiki (SMW) has been disabled on the PoE wiki due to major issues it has recently caused across the Gamepedia network. The PoE wiki makes widespread use of SMW, which means a large portion of the pages will appear broken or show errors. The community admins and Curse are aware of the issue and are looking into solutions. A change to another data storage system called Cargo has been discussed to replace SMW for a while but was a long term goal. Now that SMW is disabled a port to Cargo has to be done in a short period of time.

HIGH: Port modules and templates

HIGH-MID: Update item tables using cargo


HIGH-MID: Fixing inline SMW parser functions and calls

  • Finding all instances in wikitext of:
  • Fixing them / replacing them with cargo. If you don't know how, note them down here and someone will eventually take a look at them.

MID: Updating documentation

  • Update documentation of templates/modules above to document usage of cargo, in particular fields/table usage corresponding to variables
  • Update Path_of_Exile_Wiki:Data_query_API

LOW: Cleanup

  • when SMW usage is removed: nuke SMW name spaces (Property, Concept, etc)
    • Might be best to have curse do this (I'm fairly sure those disappear along with SMW, no extra work required — Game widow (talk) 12:47, 14 December 2017 (UTC))
  • Reorganize/fix template categories
  • Check Category:Cargo caching issue once old information staying in cargo tables is solved
