===Creating topics in Wikibase===
+
==Creating items manually while browsing==
Page = item in Wikidata and/or Wikidocumentaries. Each topic in Wikidocumentaries has a page.
 
* The initial set of topics in Wikidocumentaries are created by selecting a set of Wikidata items and creating them in Wikidocumentaries.
 
* When the user navigates to a page that does not exist in Wikidocumentaries, but for which there is an item in Wikidata (through a link in Wikipedia text for example), the page is automatically created.
 
* The user may create additional topics in Wikidocumentaries with a set of minimum required properties.
 
  
===Possible workflow and mockups===
+
===Through search===
* The user clicks on a link in a Wikipedia article in Wikidocumentaries
+
# User [[search]]es for a topic in the search box
* If the topic has been created in Wikidocumentaries, the user simply follows the link
+
# A list of possible topics is shown in the pulldown menu
* If the topic has not yet been created in Wikidocumentaries, the topic and the page will automatically be created
+
# If the right topic is not displayed, the user may choose to create it
** A "In progress page" may be shown it it takes a long time
 
* If the user follows a red link or through some other link encounters a topic that does not exist yet, she enters a disambiguation page. The page presents
 
** A search
 
** Topics that the user might have meant and links to navigate to these existing or new pages
 
** A link to create the page of a new topic
 
* The first page to create a new topic asks for the type of the new topic (P31)
 
* Based on the type, the form asks for other key properties, see the Sqid tool.
 
  
===Basic info by type of topic===
+
[[File:Header_search.png|1000px|border]]
The key info for each type can perhaps be automatically read from Wikidata. They are either recommended valua, that have been encoded in Wikidata, or most used values excluding authority IDs.
+
 
* Location may be one of these
+
=== Through a red link ===
** Coordinates -> Will yield street address, city, country
+
 
** Street address -> Will yield coordinates, city, country
+
[[File:Wikit - Red link.png|1000px|border]]
** Known location (in Wikidata) -> Will yield coordinates, city, country
+
 
** Known geographic location -> Will yield city, country
+
=== By selecting unlinked text in an article ===
** City yields country
+
# In the article, the user notices a topic that has not been linked
** Only country if no other info is present
+
# She highlights the word
 +
# This creates a search pulldown
 +
# The user may navigate to a page displayed in the pulldown.
 +
# The user may create a new item. The item is created with a pre-filled label.

  • Image component
    • Image depicts this topic option for each image uploads the image file to Wikimedia Commons and creates a structured data statement depicts referring to the current topic.
    • Image is by this creator option uploads the image to Wikimedia Commons and creates a structured data statement creator referring to the current topic.
    • Favourite image uploads the image to Wikimedia Commons, creates a local data item for the image and links it to the user's selected collection.
    • Add image uploads the image to Wikimedia Commons, creates a local data item for the image and lets modify the image metadata.
    • Exclude image from the images section of a topic creates a local data item for the image and lets modify the metadata.
    • Uploading your own image. Creates a data item and uploads to a selected service.
  • Event timeline
    • Option to associate or create an event to the current topic. Depending on event type, the value of the event is either just a date and location or a separate item with all properties.
  • Newspaper articles
  • Bibliographic data
    • Publications may be discovered in connected repositories by searches via their APIs. Users can validate relevant hits, which will be added to Wikidata for linking to the topic. If the amount of links exceeds what is suitable for Wikidata, they could be stored in Wikidocumentaries instead/additionally. Working with another bibliographic database would be a better option.
    • Users may add publications manually by adding an ISBN, URI, DOI etc. The functionality will use Citoid for Wikidata. Save publication to Wikidata, link to topic in Wikidocumentaries.
    • Reference to a specific book chapter, date, page, item in a database or page in a website are saved with the local reference.
  • Geolocating tool will allow to create a new location if it does not exist
  • Annotation tool will allow to create a new person if it does not exist.

Creating topics in the Wikibase interface

It is always possible to switch to Wikibase view and add and edit items. Navigation for that is needed.

Mass creating topics

It will be possible to configure external tools to upload to Wikidocumentaries
