Whonix ™ homepage backend[edit]


mediawiki advantages[edit]

  • community contribution friendly - flagged revisions - usable way to allow anonymous users to edit and to let admins review changes before these go live
  • seo - plugins provide good OpenGraph meta tags and meta settings (description, images)
  • wiki templates
  • footnotes
  • expand buttons
  • footer
  • mobile view
  • mediawiki markup text file backups (but are not easily importable)
  • short and detailed buttons [archive] (probably not unique to mediawiki)

mediawiki disadvantages[edit]

goals for new website[edit]

  • git based?
  • (example [archive]) compatible?
  • breadcrumbs navigation?
  • javascript free?
  • CMS free?
  • bootstrap based?
  • mobile friendly!
  • illustrative images!
  • quick page load times!
  • footer links (legal, imprint)!
  • seo!
