KDE WebWorld Day Two

Well, we’re still in sunny Essen at the excellent LinuxHotel as part of the WebWorld Sprint.

More on the websites

Today we have been looking at content management systems to see if one can fit our needs for kde.org. As part of this I have played with Joomla for the first time (having used only WordPress and Drupal before) which takes a little bit of getting used to.

It is also quite scary, going through the kde.org pages to see which ones are out of date or at least not as good as they could be. Hopefully if a CMS works out for us it will be easier for more KDE contributors to go right in and update pages as needed (no knowledge of SVN/Git or PHP needed, just basic HTML and an account on identity.kde.org).

WordPress plugin for identi.ca?

On another webby note, my plugin for syndicating my posts to identi.ca seemed to have stopped working (it was “Network Publisher”, I’ve just switched back to “Identica Tools”, which may or may not work for this post). Does anyone have a recommendation for a plugin that syndicates WordPress blog posts to Identi.ca?


Eugene has once again come up trumps with the food. He should start a KDE catering team…

KDE Time

Apart from the WebWorld tasks, I’ve also been able to spend a bit more time on KDE tasks, including being a bit more active on KDE.News than I have been recently.


It’s hard to put into words what it is like to be at a KDE sprint, if you have never been. The best way to sum it up is “energy”. Many of us were working until around 11pm last night and ready to go again at 9am this morning. There are few things better than working with fellow KDE enthusiasts on doing awesome and getting away from the distractions of “real life” boosts KDE productivity immensely.

    It’s good to see all the energy in your sprint, and I’m interested in what you’ll decide on the CMS.

    PS: We need catering.kde.org 😉

      Thanks 🙂 There are still a few things to be decided, but I’m confident the new website will be easier to use, both for content creators and readers.

      And as for the subdomain, how about katering.kde.org? 😉
