Wikitravel:Microformats

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Microformats are a loose group of standards for adding simple markup to human-readable data items such as events, contact details or locations. The information in web pages that follow the standards can be extracted by software and indexed, searched for, saved, cross-referenced or combined. More technically, they are items of semantic markup, using just standard (X)HTML with a set of common class-names. They are open and available, freely, for anyone to use.

Since microformats depend on particular (X)HTML elements and attributes, it's not - yet - possible to implement them in basic Wiki syntax. However, some of our MediaWiki extensions do or will support microformats for output.

hCard[edit]

hCard is used to mark up contact details for people, organizations or venues (i.e hotels, shops, pubs, museums, etc.). and can be extracted as a vCard. The new Wikitravel:Listings implement hCard. For examples, see Birmingham (England), Cincinnati or Singapore/Sentosa.

rel-license[edit]

The rel-licence microformat is already used on every page on Wikitravel.

Future[edit]

If you have suggestions for other ways to implement microformats on Wikitravel, please add them to shared:technical requests.
