Drupal 7 has support for the semantic web (RDF/RDFa). Is there a plugin or similar plans for WordPress?

  • Are you really needing this for something or it's just asking because it's cool sort of something? – hakre Aug 27 '10 at 22:26
  • Want to use it for rel tagging of data. Things like SKOS and Dublin Core, but many other vocabularies might be interesting. – grm Aug 28 '10 at 13:48
  • Can you please add links to a description of "SKOS" and "Dublin Core" and - if available - example code how this should look like in the end? – hakre Sep 4 '10 at 12:41
  • SKOS is experimental, but I would assume something that expose the taxonomy in this format and enables editing of it. w3.org/2004/02/skos For DublinCore I will investigate wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-rdfa – grm Sep 7 '10 at 7:50
  • yes i installed the rdfa moduel at my site softwarebuzzer.com but its not suit iwth the latest version of wordpress – user5374 May 14 '11 at 19:56

As far as I know, there are no plans to implement RDF into WordPress. RDFa on the other hand can be quite easily implemented by any theme or plugin author by simply adding the RDFa attributes to the generated markup.

Writing a plugin to expose WordPress' taxonomy as RDF wouldn't be hard and making it two-ways would probably not be that difficult either. I know of no plugins in existence that does this, though.


Here's a start:

Probably wouldn't be that hard to write a plugin for it. What's your use-case?


Wordpress can automatically generate an RDF feed

<?php bloginfo('rdf_url'); ?>
