Anyway we have the intention for a multimedia wiki
page and a few
interested users, one a developer of some of the apps we have in the two
main multimedia devel projects and one that's focused on music
production who is interested in creating a wiki focused on music
production using openSUSE.
I'm an active maintainer of multimedia apps and libs.
Any suggestions, guidance or participation will be welcomed.
First the obvious:
There is template available in drop down
In short what is multimedia (MM).
Please be concise and put the most relevant info right in the beginning of the
first sentence of the first paragraph. Web readers parse web pages for
keywords and words that are right at the top left has the biggest chance to be
read. Also, we would like to reuse that text in other pages in the way that
templates work. Google will extract only one or two sentences out of the top
of the article; try query "opensuse portal" and see what I mean.
How do you plan to sort topics?
Audio, Video, Graphics, or some other sort order?
The best is to have RSS/Atom feed included there.
Also, we did not use that section for announcements, but top can be used to
announce meetings and other actions.
The team introduction:
Link to "openSUSE:Multimedia team" page somewhere in the topic section.
All that should be done related to MM project.
If list is excessive create another page with title:
and put link in TODO on portal page.
Alternative is to list few easy tasks (those that need an hour or lesser) on
TODO page, so that readers that want to participate have something to do, and
add link to "openSUSE:Multimedia TODO" in the footer of section as
The right column is a narrow one and it is for navigation.
There you can put just link to wiki category page about multimedia:
First line will be bold "Multimedia articles:" acting as a subtitle.
Second line will become listing of Category:Multimedia .
Don't forget to put your articles in that category by including:
at the end of each article that belongs there. MediaWiki software will do the
The same is valid for "All portals:" part that is used to interconnect all
