Hi everybody,

I have a form to enter data for a scientific article
(https://sandbox.semantic-mediawiki.org/wiki/Form:ScientificArticle)

An article has authors which I want to pull in by using the options
"existing values only|values from category=ArticleAuthor"

The authors have an automatically assigned page name
(ArticleAuthor_xxxxxx) but I want to show a meaningful author name for
the drop-down so I added
"mapping property=ArticleAuthorReverse"

This works so far, but if I do this, the form creates a page where the
value for the Authors-parameter is a list of the mapping property (see
https://sandbox.semantic-mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=ScientificArticle_1229&action=edit).

I would expect the value of the Authors-parameter to be a list of page
names!
I.e. instead of

|Authors=Noe, Jane; Doe, John

I would expect to see

|Authors=ArticleAuthor_93174; ArticleAuthor_47038


Am I wrong or am I missing something?

Greetings
Hermann
