Yet again I must ask this brilliant website for advice, currently, on my Wiki PMIDs are automatically linked provided they're given in the form: PMID #, where # refers to the PMID number. Likewise ISBNs are linked when the ISBN is given before the book's ISBN. I would like the same to occur for dois given in the format: doi:#.


This is most likely all about an extension. The question isn’t mentioning if you are using Semantic MediaWiki, are you? If yes, you will have to find ways to know the list of whatever that is (doi:# ???) and handle this.

  • No, I don't even know what Semantic MediaWiki is. – Josh Pinto Jul 27 '14 at 5:26
  • If you go to the Special:Version page of your MediaWiki installation, you will see all the extensions. Maybe its there, or something there will tell you about "PMID" or "ISBN" auto links. Its clearly not a native MediaWiki feature it has to be an extension and also it has to query something and keep a copy. – renoirb Jul 28 '14 at 1:54
  • Nope there's no option on that page. – Josh Pinto Jul 28 '14 at 10:05
