Getmonero.org updated: Many internal changes, updated guides, reorganized videos and screenshots, new merchants and more

A lot of internal changes this month, but also updated guides, release announcements and more.

Updates to Getmonero

These are the major changes to Getmonero.org since my last update:

  • Fixed and simplified localization process for screenshots. This PR removed more than 1500 unnecessary files. Details in the PR – #1282
  • The 404 page is now translatable – #1236
  • Removed two Moneropedia entries: 'Address Book' and 'Destination' – #1218
  • Reduced the amount of file to edit when adding a Moneropedia entry from 28 to 15 (yes, this is still an absurd number, I'm working on it) – #1198
  • The Monero videos were reorganized. Now each video is positioned on a related page – #1190
  • Changed the way we display Moneropedia links on Getmonero. Now we show an 'i' info logo after each entry – #1138
  • The footer was refactored to use the internationalization plugin we use for part of the website. This is a significant change that makes this part of the website scalable and removes a lot of useless duplicated files. See the pull requests for the details – #1217
  • The user guide 'CLI Wallet/Daemon Isolation with Qubes + Whonix' has been labelled as 'Outdated' (but an update of this guide is waiting to be merged) – #1206
  • The Moneropedia entry 'Ring Size' has been updated – #1204
  • Added 'monero-rs' to the 'Librarty and Helpers' section – #1272

  • Added link to the guide 'Set up a wallet (using a remote node) on Tails' (external onion address)' to the ['User Guides' page])(https://www.getmonero.org/resources/user-guides/) –https://github.com/monero-project/monero-site/pull/1155
  • Now we show the Monero logo on social medias instead of nothing if the image in a post is an SVG – #1118
  • Updated screenshots and fixed minor issues of the user guide 'Verify binaries on Windows (beginner)'#1083
  • The link to the telegram chat now points to a different room – #1277
  • Announced release of the GUI 0.17.1.3#1295
