Design

User:Sophie has contacted User:Markus Pallo about NVC Wiki design. User:Jason Felice is also involved in this effort.

Notes and Ideas: multiplicity and connection (eg. leaves of a tree...variations on a theme...)

A subtitle for the title NVC WIKI? eg. Connecting the world with Empathy... compassionate connection through nonviolent communication ....collaborating with compassion to create a resource for nonviolent communication around the globe...your ideas?

Opportunities for design

Some of the obvious things that could be redesigned

  • site front page
  • logo/image (top left)
  • everything that can be changed via the mutable css.
    • 'frame' background colour/image, text
    • frame tabs - colours, text, shape?
    • page background colour, text
    • body text styles
    • navigation panel colours, border, text

Site URL

Many of us prefer nvcwiki.org to nvcwiki.com, and no one has objected yet. Markus Pallo will look into changing it to so that nvcwiki.com gets redirected to nvcwiki.org (the opposite of how it is now).

Capitalization

Is it possible to have MediaWiki ignore capitalization, so that a link to "Social change" goes to a page called "Social Change" ? (and vice-versa)

As far as i understood the first letter wil be automatically uppercased. And i read the roadmap for the major plans for release 1.6 there is "Case-insensitive, case-preserving page titles" feature planned. see http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki_roadmap

SisterSites

Check if/how MediaWiki supports SisterSites. SisterSites is a feature which links wikis together. On any page which has the same name as pages on other wikis (those selected as "sisters" of the origin wiki), links automatically appear to those other wikis. See http://ourpla.net/cgi/pikie?SisterSites

Multilingual wiki

Help by WikiMedia :

InterWiki links

Two ways to create links pointing to other languages pages in the same wiki :

  • a link which will appear in the left column
Example 1 [[fr:NVC Wiki - Questions techniques]] appears on this page below the tab in other languages
  • a link wich will remain in the right part of the page
Example 2 [[:fr:NVC Wiki - Questions techniques]] becomes fr:NVC Wiki - Questions techniques
