For each category of item, this page contains an exhaustive list of available WikiDB features. Not all of these are documented elsewhere yet. I aim to ensure this page is always up-to-date with the latest features, even if the proper documentation doesn't appear until some time later.

Configuration settings[edit]

Used to configure how WikiDB works.

Maintenance scripts[edit]

Command-line scripts for creating, upgrading or maintaining the WikiDB database.

Special pages[edit]

Additional pages provided by WikiDB.

New wiki syntax[edit]

New wiki markup that WikiDB provides.

Built-in data types[edit]

Data types provided by WikiDB for use when defining tables. It is also possible for you to create custom data types, if necessary.

Meta-data fields[edit]

Extra fields that are included in each row of data, that may be referenced within the <repeat> tag.

  • _SourceArticle
  • _Row

Criteria operators[edit]

The following operators are available for use in any place where filter criteria may be specified. Note that when used in the criteria attribute of the <repeat> tag, you currently need to write > as &gt; (due to the inherent restrictions on attribute values), so you may wish to use the alternative text-representation instead. Note that text-representations are case-insensitive.
