Semantic Forms Inputs was an extension for Page Forms, i.e. allows to define an additional series of input widgets and values. As of 2017 it is deprecated, i.e. integrated into Page forms

The Semantic Forms extension allows users to add, edit and query data of a Semantic MediaWiki using forms. For every form field the input type specifies the type of input a field will have in the form. Semantic Forms comes with basic input types for all data types. This extension -- Semantic Forms Inputs -- aims to collect further, optically and/or functionally enhanced input types.

The official documentation is very well done and the topic is easy if you understand how to use Semantic Forms which is not easy. Therefore, read both our own little text and the official Semantic Forms documentation....

Example codes

The following defines two listboxes. To the left you will get all the values of the category:MediaWiki extension and to the right all that are selected. A life demo provided in the form used of this page (Edit with form).
