Wiki Loves Monuments blog needs to use responsive design
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The Wiki Loves Monuments international blog needs to be responsive.

This is especially important as we're going to be using the mobile Commons application (with our own campaigns)[1] this year, instead of a WLM-specific app — with the ever-rising importance of mobile traffic, it doesn't make any sense to direct people to a website that cannot be viewed on their devices.

Until now, we've been using the WPTouch Wordpress plugin to serve static content to mobile users, which provides a totally different experience than the 'normal', 'desktop' version of the website. This needs to change.

Possible solutions:
#1: Rewrite the existing theme;
#2: Use an existing responsive theme, and adopt it to our purposes;
#3: Create a brand new theme from scratch.

What we offer:

  • Public appreciation on the new blog, mailing list, IRC and Twitter;
  • [Unconfirmed] A packet of stroopwafels!

Version: unspecified
Severity: enhancement

Forgotten reference:

  • [1] The workflow of the future app is currently a big mystery to me. For example, I cannot imagine a way to pass arguments from within our Wikipedia lists to the mobile application for use in the upload campaigns — so mobile images are probably not going to have any IDs at all. This would be very unfortunate, tough to keep track of[2] and would add additional work for the community.
  • [2] One possibility is to use mobile-specific upload campaigns that would add special categories, and to have them reviewed by community members or a bot that would suggest IDs using GPS data/description/whatever.

This has been fixed ages ago by Mono.
