Fix stuff in kde-www, will port it over.

Yes, commit it, will look at it and commit to www.

Could be solution ;)

Hmm, have simply moved the helping/jobs back to jobs, why was it moved
at all,
if good reason will undo my changes in www later.

First porting the page over, vote after the page is usable.
