Site sustainability tips[edit | edit source]

  • Actively fight complexity and work towards simplicity
    • Less templates, more content!
    • Avoid custom namespaces (given the extremely diverse nature of pages in the main namespace of Appropedia, there should be no need for custom namespaces)
    • Merge related pages to have fewer, better ones
  • Prefer well-supported extensions, especially Wikimedia-supported ones
  • Keep MediaWiki updated only to the latest LTS version and never modify the source code
  • Convention over configuration
  • Use modern web standards and structured data for rich results

Good web and wiki design guidelines[edit | edit source]

  • Test in mobile - 50% of our visitors browse from mobile!
  • Test in the visual editor
  • Adding or modifying HTML or CSS via JavaScript tends to cause flashes of unstyled content
