We are looking for new persons to help us to take care of the Xfce web
site (http://www.xfce.org/). We need a web developer/designer to handle
the technical details and someone to improve/update the contents (can be
the same person, but it would be nice to build a team).
Our web site runs a home made PHP based CMS (with no online interface)
which we would like to keep (improvements and bug fixes are welcome of
course) for the time being. Though, its contents needs some love: some
pages are strongly outdated, the style could be refreshed, some pages
still use tables for layout, etc. We also need to find a solution for
localization: the current system requires the user to translate raw PHP
pages and often leads to errors when going live, up to the point that we
are considering dropping translations. This will highly depend on the
people who get involved in the web site.
The web developer position requires a good PHP, HTML and CSS knowledge
to be able to handle the different aspects of the web site. A good
command of English to update/rework the different pages and make the web
site easier to use, this also requires to follow the Xfce development to
update the web site accordingly. Of course, this work can be done as a
team if several persons step in. This is a good opportunity to start
contributing to the Xfce project and this work will be appreciated by a
lot of Xfce users.
Please contact me if you are interested. Thank you in advance!
