Getmonero.org updated: Conversion of the Moneropedia in progress, new blog posts, new FAQs, fixes and much more

Hey everybody. There was a lot of activity on the website this month. The work to make the Moneropedia translatable (and scalable) is ongoing, but the bigger chunk is completed. We also changed the Merchants page as announced in my previous update. Now we give more relevance to P2P exchanges and we provide third party merchants directory instead of maintaining our own. This update concludes my CCS proposal. I'm about to open another one, but flexible. I will offer three months of work, but that will be distributed according to my availability. I'm in the process of offloading some of my most time-consuming responsibilities in the Monero project, so that i will be able to dedicate more time to Haveno and other offline matters.

Introduce i18n system for the Moneropedia

Most of my activity last month was dedicated to refactoring the Moneropedia, so that it will be possible to translate it on Weblate (#1780). This is the last piece missing for having a scalable website. Each listed PR refactors a Moneropedia entry.

This list doesn't include all changes to the website or to the repository. For a wider overview, take a look at the list of all commits or the overview of the activity on Github during the last month


We need contributors willing to work on the website!

Contributors willing to help with the website are always welcome. You are encouraged to join the #monero-site chatroom (on Freenode, Matrix and MatterMost) to stay up to date and participate to the development. It's possbile to contribute to the development of the website in several ways:

  • Translate! It's possible to translate the main parts of the website through an user-friendly graphic interface: Weblate. You don't need any particular experience, except speaking a second language, but make sure to read the guide you find at the top of the page.
  • Resolve an issue! There are many open issues only waiting for contributors to work on them. Keep an eye especially on the issues labelled "⛑️ contributor needed" , which are mostly documentation changes or easy issues which don't require deep technical knowledge. If you would like to help with one of those, but you are scared by the fact that you need to navigate the repository, feel free to contact us and we will manage to get you started.
