Hi Laurent,

I'm using the Semantic Forms extension but currently have some unexpected behavior.

On the page for the book "Semantic_Web_Programming" ( http://halo.3kbo.com/index.php/Semantic_Web_Programming) the link to create an Author goes to the normal page via the link


while from the page for the property Was_written_by ( http://halo.3kbo.com/index.php/Property:Was_written_by )

the link goes to the correct page for creating an Author


Any ideas ?

You cannot constraint links to pages of a certain category.

The only way to come close to that would be to use the Semantic Forms extension (you really should use it by default anyway :) ) and set it up to use an Author form for Wanted links (or red links) associated with the 'Was written by' property.

I'm pretty new to Semantic Mediwiki. Currently I am in the process of setting up a site [1] with a number of different documents types (each document type mapping to an underlying Concept or Category) .

As a way of getting started I am following the Semantic Forms Example [2] which creates Books and Authors and uses the property "Was written by", of type "Page" to link a Book with its Author(s).

What is the best way to create a property that constrains the link just to Authors, e.g. a property "written by", of type "Author" where only Author pages are valid for the "written by" property?
