Design and roll out a good default WLM landing page for national competitions
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

One of the hard things that national teams run into year after year, is setting up a good landing page. In the past we have offered wordpress templates to help teams with a good default option.

However, we want to slowly move towards having an excellent default option on Wikimedia Commons. Who would be willing to help design that and set it up in an easy to edit way? I'd love to brainstorm a little more with one or two others about this, but I was thinking some basic requirements should be:

  • setting up the landing page has to be possible without extensive knowledge of wiki markup or templates
  • it has to work in both RTL and LTR (or we create two versions, fine with me too)
  • it has to support multiple languages
  • it needs to have a super clear workflow for participants: point out the basics of the competitions, where to find the monuments and how to upload.
  • be low maintenance and easy to set up, with possibility to expand as a country has a more complex setup/requirements.

FWIW: here is the wiki-based content we have been using in Spain for several years:¹ https://www.wikilm.es/en/

It probably won't cater most requisites (it's designed for easily having the website for a new edition rather than for being setup without template knowledge), but it may inspire other.

¹ Yes, it's a wiki. See https://www.wikilm.es/en/?action=edit or https://wiki.wikimedia.es/wiki/Wiki_Loves_Monuments?useskin=monobook plus their subpages. ;)

I made a start here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_monuments/Documentation/Example_landing_page

mainly to indicate what content I think it should have, and how prominent it should be. Help needed to make it responsive :)
