Technically: The wiki software used is hosted on a separate site. To place it on the main website at www. or wiki. would simply need a redirect to that hosted content or setting up our own wiki hosting and point to that.
Why are there two locations for content? One is wiki software allowing for live editing using wiki like language (the life of that site is outside the control of the admins) the other is a blog with version control and publication management (by the admins) on github - and it’s better structured for single blog posts and not wiki like hyperlinks (publication steps require some approval).
I think I mentioned the possibility of merely creating a redirect from wiki.language-learners.org to learnanylanguage.wikia.com/. It would appear to be our own site, at least when first going to it. But as you manuever around the site it would become obvious to anyone looking at the address bar that it was a separate site. And we wouldn't have control over it, but be subject to whatever bright ideas Wikia has.
The advantage would be simplicity and lack of work. But you get what you pay for.
