An email was sent out at the Wiki Tech Ambassadors list on 25 January, asking for volunteers to help developing the Wikimania Wiki for 2019, but also to make it a more reusable one. A couple of volunteers have stated an interest in helping out, and the purpose of this task is to coordinate this work Phabricator-wise.

Draft page directory with proposed future and comments; feel free to edit, discuss and fill out
|Main Page||x||The main page is the foundation of the Wikimania Wiki, and it has to look welcoming and attractive. Someone interested in graphics and CSS should try to make such a template that could easily be reused to as high an extent as possible each year.|
|Program||x||The program will probably be hard to make reusable each year, because it differs so much both in content and setting.|
|Registration||x||Probably not the page that needs the most complex and graphically attractive layout.|
|Sponsorship||x||The attempt from Wikimedia Sweden is to make this less of a list and more of a narrative to sell. A proposal is in the making.|
|Orientation||x||The local information seems arbitrarily divided up into many different subpages. A proposal is to make a more collected version that could also work in PDF format.|
|Accommodation||x||See comment on orientation.|
|Attendees||x||Remove or remake into a more feasible format.|
|Local transport||x||See comment on orientation.|
|Travel tips||x||See comment on orientation.|
|Local Tour Options||x||See comment on orientation.|
|Water shortage||x||No water shortage in Sweden planned.|

I would suggest that we import the whole thing, and rem out what is not needed immediately and then build into what you need. I would also like to ensure that we have Swedish language labels pretty quickly afterwards.
@Eric_Luth_WMSE We are going to need to work on rights pretty soon at least for allowing for translation admins. Probably best if the wiki can get bureaucrat(s) so that can be assigned locally; otherwise we can just lay them on the stewards through meta as long as you line up an approval process that sits outs outside of standard wikis
Questions. Looking at WM2018, I am wondering whether as some basics, whether you wish to have the following brought over
- common.js (sets available languages)
- common.css (general fonts, lots of box stuff,
- mobile.css (pretty simple)
I have brought in a handful of general mediawiki files from 2018 that are pertinent to simple editing, and will look to the gadget(s) next
I don't know CSS too well, but the most basic ones could be brought over, I suppose. Concerning the more advanced parts, I got input from the creators of the Wikimania 2014 wiki and the Wiki Conference wiki (which is already reusable as I understand it, @Harej?), and both would be happy to give feedback in this process. But that requires a discussion on what the page should look like and how it should function, of course.
I am no css expert either, though know the basics
The css in wm2018 there is not rocket science, and primarily looks to align with stuff set in templates and modules bits (Box stuff imported from enWP). Some custom styles which can be rem'd
We can skip mobile.css for the moment as it is the custom styles
At the moment, "Volunteers" is placed under "Attend"; I would like to move it, because we want to make it possible for people to volunteer without attending. I would also like to break up "Volunteer" and "Ambassador", which at this point is placed under the same heading in the side bar. Does someone have a proposal of a good way of structuring the sidebar?
@Billinghurst Indeed it is! I bet I could almost (given my lacking competence) do it myself. But any ideas on a smart structure would be great!
Many other conference websites seem to do something along the lines:
- Past Conferences
- “Local Info”
I also realized that the subtab feature of the navbar is not working at the moment. Does anyone know how to fix this? Is there a component in the Lua Module that needs to be imported, maybe?
