From IndieWeb

At IndieWebCamp 2014 we had a session to redesign the wiki. The new theme is currently installed on the wiki, but not set to be the default theme yet.

If you want to suggest new CSS edits for the wiki, you can send a pull request to the Mediawiki skin here: https://github.com/indieweb/wiki

If you are signed in to the wiki, there is an additional style tag added on the page:


(where example.com is actually your website)

This gives you a way to make CSS edits to test things out on the real wiki with the full content rather than setting up your own MediaWiki install.


  • Events and "What is indie" on every page... I only need this on the home page--Bret Comnes 16:14, 21 July 2014 (PDT)
  • Wiki tools should be an edit button, with the other tools a drop down. Similar to getting started menu. --Bret Comnes 16:14, 21 July 2014 (PDT)
  • navbar doesn't fold up properly at smaller sizes.
    pills drop below the bar at medium width

    disappear altogether on a phone
  • line-height of textareas is very narrow (prefer ~1.4em) Kylewm.com
  • no border around thumbnails
  • Code boxes are hard to read/identify due to lack of boarder or background.
  • Summarizing tantek:
    • Wiki tools usage
      • very frequent / daily: Page, Edit, History
      • "Page" link is the *fastest* (muscle memory) way to go from a "Edit" state or "History" state to the current state of the page
      • do wish we had keyboard shortcuts working
      • rarely (once a month?) Delete, Move
      • never: Discussion, Protect, Unwatch, Log out
  • gRegor Morrill: The section "edit" links are proportionally sized. Should be the same size regardless of heading size.


  • Collapse TOC on pages
  • Testing on current site with plugins
  • Clean up timestamps in event feed
  • Remove orange underline from linked images
  • Fix preference navigation tabs
