Events Portal Creation on Wikis
Open, NormalPublic

Description

What is the problem?

We currently are creating the events team portal on the wiki's (Meta + Office), and require some assistance in the creation.

How can we help you?

Help us with the framework (= look & feel) of the Wikis. We will provide a blueprint of the layout and an existing Wiki page we were inspired by

What does success look like?

A fully operational Events Portal for internal (wmf) folks and for external parties

What is your deadline?

I would like to have our page layout and format ready within a month from now.

1 page created at https://office.wikimedia.org/wiki/Events_Team
Waiting for feedback in the doc or here before I can do anything more.

Great work on this! Will get back to you with feedback

@Quiddity any possibility of linking through the calendar from WM Spaces: https://discuss-space.wmflabs.org/c/events/l/calendar

Also, do you see a possibility of adding the populated world map from WM spaces onto the wiki? or that a technical no-go?

What are the options?

@JLetangWMF AFAIK, it is not currently possible to embed content from Wikimedia Space into the wikis, although that is certainly a desired feature - hopefully in the (somewhat distant) future.
For now, the main option is to provide links to the calendar-view and map-view at Wikimedia Space, and supplement that with the existing links to the many scattered locations these things are currently tracked (such as m:Events etc).

What's left to do here? Thanks! :)

Can I get back to you in approx 1 week?

So sorry I did not get back to you on this. Will do so post-wikimania! Thanks for you patience!
