Which modules use semantic link data and how?

posts: 26
I was hoping that the semantic qualifier of semantic links might show up in the backlinks menu but they do not. For me, that would be a great feature. Which modules do use semantic link data and how do they use them? It is nice that basic support exists in TikiWiki for semantics, but I'm not yet sure what benefits (if any) are actually imparted to developers and users. Perhaps this feature just benefits 3rd parties mining the website?

Hi,

Semantic links haven't been developed much, as far as I know, so maybe the semantic links module (http://doc.tiki.org/Module-semantic_links) is about it, as far as implementation goes. The documentation is also really sparse, which suggests the feature hasn't progressed much. And I'm quite sure there's nothing available to third parties that isn't apparent to the Tiki site admin, at least nothing intentionally provided to third parties — that wouldn't be consistent with the Tiki ethos.

When I insert a semantic link of type alias, it actually just adds a suffix like -2 to the page name. I presume though, that the alias name will show up in the list of pages that builds as you type when creating a link?
