KDE hosts a variety of websites, from the highly dynamic to info, documentation, and promotional sites. Volunteering involves very different aspects ranging from:
- writing content
- moderating in the forum
- coordinating announcements
- staying in contact with KDE developers to be aware of latest changes
- administering dynamic sites like forum, wikis
- watching out for spammers in those
- enhancing functionality of the codebase
- styling/designing the look of our sites
- etc etc
The web team works closely with the promo and the sysadmin teams to make sure that KDE has a nice-looking and functional web presence.
There are a variety of options to get involved. KDE websites use either its own framework (Capacity, see below), or one of the well known frameworks around the web. This includes:
KDE's web needs steadily change, and there is always room for coders who are able to contribute HTML, CSS or PHP.

In order to do any development you will want to have a local version of the websites to test before committing. The instructions for how to set this up are here: Local Website Setup.
