start a page
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.
- See redirect for how to do that.

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.
