Wikimedia page version[edit]

Originally proposed at Wikidata:Property proposal/Sister projects

DescriptionURL of revision of Wikipedia article or other page on a WMF site being used, site specific URL to a page version ID (oldid parameter)
Data typeURL
Template parameter
Allowed valuesWikipedia article or other pages on Wikimedia sites
Example 1Q11300151#P989
Example 2Q2513#P989
Example 3Q727#P989
See alsospoken text audio (P989), Wikimedia import URL (P4656), revision identifier, reference URL (P854), Wikidata:Property proposal/image revision-id, full work available at (P953)


spoken text audio (P989) currently includes files with the spoken text of a Wikipedia article associated with the item. It's generally not the most recent one, but one specified by a revision-id of the wiki. As this number is meaningless without the wiki, the above proposal includes the full url.

Wikimedia import URL (P4656) can have similar values, but, as reference URL (P854), it doesn't seem suitable as it's used in another context. Please help complete the proposal/add more samples. (Add your motivation for this property here.) --- Jura 07:52, 12 October 2019 (UTC)


  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment. Maybe full work available at (P953) could do? But whatever I support the proposal. Thierry Caro (talk) 17:54, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment For giving a URL for a reference to Wikipedia, always use Wikimedia import URL (P4656) with the appropriate "permanent link" url (which can be simplified to just the kind of url above). It's not clear what other use-case (if any) the present proposal is considering. Jheald (talk) 22:27, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
    • There is a risk that it gets confused with these. It's the revision-id of the Wikipedia article that is spoken. I added the corresponding template fields. --- Jura 07:20, 14 October 2019 (UTC)
  • I think using the term "ID" in the label is confusing - it's a URL, not the numeric value like '22382928'. Nevertheless I think this is a good idea in general, to have a property specifically tailored to point to specific revisions of a wikimedia page (and it could be used for many purposes besides just the audio recording one proposed). So Symbol support vote.svg Support. However, Jura you really shouldn't mark your own proposals "ready" particularly when they have not attracted any positive support at that point.

  • I updated the label as enwiki uses "Page Version ID:" for the "oldid" [1]. --- Jura 10:47, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
