There are some more problems with the new design, and I have solutions for
them. I would be willing to fix them, but I cannot write to www.
I pointed most of them out before the move:
I was willing to fix them in kde-www.
I am not sure what I should do now. I cannot fix bugs in stuff that is
already moved, for I don't have write access to www.
There is a pathetic rendering problem of the new design on some versions
of the IE, and I have already suggested a possible fix for it on this
list. So before we move everything to the new design, could you please
allow me to fix this bug?
If no one disagrees, I will commit to kde-www later today and hope that
other people with write access to www will move my possible solution to
www and bugs.kde.org
The cookie setting the default style sheet is ignored on www.kde.org and
bugs.kde.org, but it works on kate.kde.org and wwwtesting.kde.org
Maybe this can be fixed by using $_COOKIE['sitestyle'] instead of
$sitestyle (but this is just a guess).
Could someone with more php knowledge (and write access to www) look into
The settings page needs to be cleaned up. I will do this in kde-www,
someone else can then commit my changes to www as well.
The menu is broken since /jobs/ got moved to /helping/jobs/.
menu.inc still points to /jobs/, and /jobs/open.php is not shown in the
menu any longer. (It was a subpoint of /jobs/.)
My suggested fix:
Moving /helping/jobs/open.php to /helping/open.php ("Open Jobs")
Moving /helping/jobs/index.php to /helping/jobs.php ("Getting Involved")
Make "Open Jobs" a subpoint of "Helping Out" in the menu
Make "Getting Involved" a subpoint of "Helping Out" in the menu
If no one disagrees, I will do these changes in kde-www and hope someone
will move them to www once tested.
I am also still waiting for an answer whether there will be a vote for the
default style or not. Dre has offered to set up a voting mechanism
several weeks ago, a lot of people have said it is a good idea to have
this vote, and no one has given any arguments for cancelling or
postponing the vote, but still nothing is happening. If we don't do it
now, it is probably too late (as it is also a good opportunity to promote
the new design once all problems are fixed).
