WelcomeWiki Lite

WelcomeWiki Lite lets users embed an entire MediaWiki page or a section from a MediaWiki page into their WordPress or non-WordPress site.


What is WelcomeWiki Lite
WelcomeWiki Lite lets users embed an entire MediaWiki Page or a section from a MediaWiki page into their WordPress or non-WordPress site. WelcomeWiki Lite embeds content from any or all pages that follow MediaWiki protocols including Wikipedia and WikiVoyage.

WelcomeWiki Lite is implemented using shortcodes [welcomewikilite] or [welcomewikiliteform]. [welcomewikilite] derives from either the dashboard or from [[]] in page or post editors.

[welcomewikiliteform] may also be used in a post or page to build a web form-based manifestation of internal operations. [welcomewikiliteform] was built for use by WordPress and non-WordPress developers alike. The web form generates a generic js script which may be embedded into any webpage regardless of framework.


How Did WelcomeWiki Lite Come About?
WelcomeWiki Lite resulted from a fusion of three independent projects, which until 2013 were unaware of each others’ existence until a serendipitous moment in 2013 when they all came together.

Mark Mattson and Trung Van Huu of Cartonova had been experimenting with copying Wikipedia content into websites built for clients; Terry Jackson had completed a feasibility study entitled ‘Wales Settlements Project & Wiki Wales’, and Robin Owain, Wikimedia UK’s Wikipedia Manager for Wales, invited Jackson to conduct a similar study for the ‘Llwybrau Byw! Living Paths!’ pilot project.

By this time, Mattson had become acquainted with Jackson on a LinkedIn group entitled ‘A New Model for Destination Marketing’ and thus the circle was complete! It was a unanimous decision then to make the code available to the WordPress and Wikipedia communities.
