Talk: Main Page
The purpose is to keep this discussion page with basic instructions on how to maintain the wiki. There is also a to-do list for improvement.
[SUGGESTION] Placing important links at the front page?
How about putting several important LibrePlanet links on the front page to make discovery easier? Featured pages are excellent, but they are not enough to convey more about what resources available at LibrePlanet website. Excellent examples given by The GNU Project website are that they do so. For example, the most important ones are Free Software Definition and GNU/Linux Distros Download at the bottom, while About, Education and Philosophy at the top. These make GNU.org very easy to navigate, access and understand -- it improves discoverability. I suggest LibrePlanet also put important pages on front page, for example:
- Laptops Comparison: https://libreplanet.org/wiki/Group:Hardware/Laptops_Comparison
- End Software Patent https://libreplanet.org/wiki/Group:End_Software_Patents
- Nonfree software blacklist https://libreplanet.org/wiki/List_of_software_that_does_not_respect_the_Free_System_Distribution_Guidelines
- Fight to Repair https://libreplanet.org/wiki/Group:FSF/Fight-to-Repair
- Windows 7 Sins https://libreplanet.org/wiki/Group:Windows_7_Sins
- Open Document Format https://libreplanet.org/wiki/Group:OpenDocument
Design guidelines are basically references to existing documentation below. We will need to avoid using Tables to ensure an accessible and responsive portal for mobile devices.
- SVG Logo: https://libreplanet.org/w/skins/Tweeki/custom/lp-logo.svg
- UI theme mockup: https://libreplanet.org/wiki/Libreplanet-theme-mediawiki
- Theme doc: https://tweeki.thai-land.at/wiki/Welcome
- Edit CSS on https://libreplanet.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Tweeki.css
- Edit Nav on https://libreplanet.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Tweeki-navbar-left (right/brand)
- Components ref: https://getbootstrap.com/docs/4.3/components/alerts/
This is an initial framework for portal navigation. Following this structure, we can keep a "site map" documented here as a basic reference for organizing content.
- Involve as many people as possible to test the new theme.
- Collaborate on article structure review and translation
- Refresh local organizations page and propose default template
- Propose a default template for user profile
- Structure the teams
- Structure the events
Where do I list my new page?
I've made this page:
It isn't a group and doesn't need a group to form around it, and it isn't an essay either. It's just part of the wiki - an article, which I'll improve from time to time and I hope other transients will too. Does this wiki have a section for normal wiki pages :-) ? Ciaran 20:23, 9 June 2012 (EDT)
- And this page:
- Should I make a box on the Main Page for these pages?
- Maybe the wiki needs a sitemap? The structure of this wiki seems to be missing something. It doesn't have the organic growth model, or the interconnectedness of other wikis. Is it possible that an over emphasis on Groups is harming the structure? Maybe a mixed Groups+normal_pages model would be better? Ciaran 17:26, 26 August 2012 (EDT)
Pages I made - happy home sought
I've still no idea where to link to these pages:
- Good and bad licence changes
- When is digital inclusion good?
- Governments developing free software
- Programming in elisp
- Programming in Scheme
- Programming in c
- When should firmware be free
- Projects to free phones and handheld computers
