Find external links

You can search for external links matching a certain protocol with Special:LinkSearch.

Assign a category to a page

To add a category (e.g. Facets) to a given page, add the following anywhere on the page (at end is best):

[[Category:Facets]]

Add a code span or block

For a code fenced paragraph that respects indentation, use a space (" ") followed by <nowiki> tags:

 <nowiki><div ex:role="facet" 
   ex:expression=".age"
   ex:facetClass="Slider" 
   ex:horizontal="true"
   ex:precision="100"
   ex:histogram="true">
</div></nowiki>

Which renders as:

<div ex:role="facet" 
   ex:expression=".age"
   ex:facetClass="Slider" 
   ex:horizontal="true"
   ex:precision="100"
   ex:histogram="true">
</div>

Transclude one page inside another

Use {{Exhibit3}}. Items in the main namespace must use a leading colon, e.g. {{:Exhibit3}}. See Transclusion on MediaWiki site for more details.

Transclude category listings

Per Stack Overflow, Semantic MediaWiki allows you to do so with:

{{#ask:[[Category: Facets]]
|format=ul
}}

Which yields:
