{{Shortcut|[[Alphabet]]<br />[[wt:abc]]}}
Imagine:- living in the lap of nature, with towering pine trees, gurgling rivers and chirping birds with you.
+
'''Alphabetical order''' should be the norm within each section. If another standard is used, it should be clearly stated (either on the [[Wikitravel:Using talk pages|discussion page]] of the article or as a [[Html#Comments|hidden comment]] above the list itself) so any new listing can be added to the appropriate place. Leading definite or indefinite articles, such as "''The''", or "''A''", in the listing's name should be ignored for the purposes of determining the order.

Imagine:- waking up every morning to see the sun’s golden rays kiss snow-covered mountains.

Imagine:- watching the shifting mist and dancing raindrops perform a spellbinding near you.

Huge, undifferentiated lists are only marginally useful to the traveller. A general rule of thumb is that it is time to consider breaking up long lists or pruning them when entries reach double figures.

Revision as of 08:09, 20 September 2013

Wikitravel uses standardized formats to list attractions, activities, shops, restaurants, bars and hotels under the See, Do, Buy, Eat, Drink and Sleep sections respectively. This page describes those listings.

Contents

Listing order

Alphabetical order should be the norm within each section. If another standard is used, it should be clearly stated (either on the discussion page of the article or as a hidden comment above the list itself) so any new listing can be added to the appropriate place. Leading definite or indefinite articles, such as "The", or "A", in the listing's name should be ignored for the purposes of determining the order.

Avoid long lists

Wikitravel is a travel guide, not the Yellow Pages.
Huge, undifferentiated lists are only marginally useful to the traveller. A general rule of thumb is that it is time to consider breaking up long lists or pruning them when entries reach double figures.

Adding and editing listings

To add a new listing, go to the article for the city which you want to add the listing to and click on the blue [add listing] link next to the appropriate section header of See, Do, Buy, Eat, Drink or Sleep. This will pop up a box where you can easily enter the listing details.

To edit an existing listing, click on the small, grey edit text after the listing.

Wiki styled text doesn't work within our XML-formatted listing tags.

For some listings, this option is not available, and you need to edit them manually by clicking on the light blue [edit] link at the top of the section.

Overview

The following section describes how to manually enter or edit XML-formatted listing tags.

These structured tags make it easier for software to format the listings correctly. Each tag type is for a different kind of listing, according to the section it's in.

The tag format follows the angle-brackets form of HTML, XML, or other SGML applications. Each tag should have the format:

<tag attribute1="..." attribute2="..." attribute3="..." attribute4="...">Some description.</tag>

Listings that use these tags will create correctly formatted hcard entries, which can be copied and viewed with software like the Operator extension for Firefox.

Attributes

Each attribute is one of the following listed attributes.
Note that the content of the description can contain wikitext, but not the content of the attributes! No attribute is required, but some are recommended to make a listing at all useful.

  • name: the name of the hotel, bar, restaurant, museum, or whatever. Essential. Without a name, the small, grey edit link after the listing will not display.
  • alt: an alternative name, either in the local language or just an alternative. Optional.
  • address: a street address for finding the listed entry, for places where this is meaningful. Recommended.
  • directions: additional brief directions besides the street address, such as cross streets, nearby subway or bus stations. Optional
  • phone: a phone number for making reservations or getting more information. Recommended.
  • tollfree: a toll-free phone number, if available. Optional.
  • email: an email address for making reservations or getting more information. Optional.
  • fax: a fax number. Optional.
  • phoneextra: any extra information for phone calls. Optional
  • url: the URL for the official Web site for this listed entry. To display properly as a working, clickable hyperlink, either http:// or https:// must be included before the rest of the URL! (see external links for more guidelines). Recommended.
  • hours: opening hours of the attraction, when applicable. Recommended.
  • checkin: checkin time, for sleep listings only. Optional.
  • checkout: checkout time, for sleep listings only. Optional.
  • hoursextra: any extra hours information (seasons, exceptions). Optional.
  • price: price of a room, or price of a drink, or price of an average meal, or price of admission. Recommended.
  • priceextra: any extra price information (discounts, what it applies to). Optional.
  • lat: Decimal latitude (GPS coordinates) for map output. Not yet displayed. Optional.
  • long: Decimal longitude (GPS coordinates) for map output. Not yet displayed. Optional.
    • Note: lat and long should have the same number of decimal places (using trailing zeroes if applicable). If one is present, so should the other be.
  • geo: comma-separated decimal latitude and longitude (GPS coordinates) of the attraction. Deprecated; use lat and long instead.
  • tags: comma-separated list of free-text tags (see tag for details). Note: not yet shown in the output. Optional.

Note that the capitalization has to be identical (that is, use "name", not "Name" or "NAME"), and that empty listings (with no description) still need to have a closing tag (like </tag>).
