Introduction

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.

Getting involved

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.

Capacity is about to become deprecated, as the main site is being prepared for a move to WordPress Drupal to be decided
