Small Wiki Toolkits: Main page customization (adaptive/responsive CSS basics; Template basics?)
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Wondering whether this should be a subtask of (closed) T225769: Develop workshop toolkits for small wiki technical contributors.

I sometimes find requests in Phab for help with customizing the main page of wikis.
That is unfortunately out of scope for Phab tasks but of course the problem still exists.

Mistakes easily happen, see e.g. T107743: "Wiktionary:Main Page" has unbalanced html span tags

I suggest looking at Frwiki's main page. They overhauled it a couple of years ago, and it's responsive, and I believe (but not sure) it has been checked for accessibility. Here are the links I can find, but I'll ping @Trizek-WMF in case he knows of further links.
