start a page

From IndieWeb
Jump to: navigation, search


To start a page on the indiewebcamp wiki, either

  • Edit an existing page. Add a link to new-page, then save the page.
  • Click the new-page link, then click "edit this page."


  • Type the URL of the desired page directly into the browser address bar, then click "edit this page."

Then start by copy pasting the following:


And lastly, include a simple 1-2 sentence definition of what the page is about. E.g. if the page is about "WidgeCo", start with something like:

<span class="p-summary">'''<dfn>WidgeCo</dfn>''' is a ...</span>

and complete that sentence including any indieweb relevance.

If there is no indieweb relevance, then DO NOT create the page. If you need something to link to, just link to a Wikipedia page instead of making a non-indieweb-relevant stub.

You may also want to simply redirect a new page to an existing page.

May I copy paste from another site

Q: Is it ok if I mostly copy+paste a definition from the site of the product/company (e.g. WidgeCo in example above) that I'm creating a new page for?

A: Rather than copy/paste from their site, try to rephrase a definition so it sounds neutral, factual, and uses indieweb terminology when possible, which should then be [[ ]] linked.
