If so, hosting wiki software on LLorg is a must OR using the current static/blog/whatever pages to house wikiish information is a must. Whatever keeps people inside LLorg.
The wikia still has tons of links to forum posts. That's why I'm in favour of replacing links to htlal with links to LLORG instead of summarizing the content.
also, one is unlikely to find the forum with such a basic search term. Meanwhile if you search for subs2srs, our wikia is the third hit, while forum posts are at the bottom of the page (but it's still all on the first page :D)


If we want to improve ranking on Google, the thing to do is implement an RSS feed and a google site map. Manually trying to do that from the wiki is just too much manual overhead.


And I just checked - the feed already exists at https://forum.language-learners.org/feed.php, only the google site map is missing.

There is an extension for that, but from the reviews sounds a little buggy. Which is perhaps why EMK didn't implement it during the recent change over. I have no idea if the wiki site has any of that.

I saw that extension. It's not clear how well it works. It's been dowloaded a lot of times and only has a few complaints. Seems like a lot of those were resolved?

The wikia was created when only the old forum existed. I guess the name was supposed to be a shortened version of HTLAL.
After numerous problems the members moved to this forum. The name is different as a courtesy to the original administrator, and for various other reasons too (the old name is also a book title; it's pretty long too).

New Dutch Language Island added to the LLorg Wiki

Verenigde Naties Universele Verklaring van de Rechten van de Mens

United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Wiki article - Universele Verklaring van de Rechten van de Mens

This "island" is simply two links to the Dutch and English versions on the United Nations pages. Excellent parallel text of the 30 articles. This UN declaration may be the world's largest collection of parallel texts since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is available in over 500 languages.
