Description

Due to the restructuring of the website, most links in the About menu are now broken , including:

  • those in QGIS sponsor dialog
  • "Need support" menu item

Probably more.
This should be fixed ASAP, either by activating apache rewrite, or by fixing the links.

Trivial to fix, important for our reputation.

#4 Updated by Paolo Cavallini about 7 years ago

Need support redirects to the DE page:

http://www.qgis.org/de/site/forusers/commercial_support.html

The rest looks OK.
I would consider this ticket closed when the links are updated in the code however (TBD for next stable).

And where should it point?

The link in source points to http://www.qgis.org/en/commercial-support.html and it's German translation to http://www.qgis.org/de/kommerzieller-support.html. On the new site the URLs are apparently not translated, so the new target should be ok.

I think it's just that the support page isn't translated yet to German (except for some general terms like "Bemerkung").

There is no crash or data corruption, so I'm lowering the priority.

#7 Updated by Paolo Cavallini over 6 years ago

Agreed is not crucial, but given that it takes so little to fix, and is so bad for our "marketing", why not fixing it straight away?
Thanks a lot.

About menu/sponsorship:

we already do a redirect so the link
http://qgis.org/en/sponsorship/donors.html
points to
http://qgis.org/en/site/about/sponsorship.html#list-of-donors
for QGIS 1.8 and 2.0 version (old version).

I think in the about dialog/sponsorship of QGIS 2.2 we should just point to:
http://qgis.org/en/site/about/sponsorship.html

The link about commercial support; was
http://www.qgis.org/en/commercial-support.html
Should be:
http://www.qgis.org/de/site/forusers/commercial_support.html

Agree?
