Web developer: Help KDE with a few hours of work

At KDE we're trying to get people to donate more (I hope I don't have to explain to this audience why), one of the ideas floating around is adding a small "impulse donate" button to kde.org similar to the one at http://www.videolan.org/ (only with euros and without a "why?" link for now)

I'm not a web devel by far (though have done my fair share of copy&pasting php, html and css for KDE and other personal projects) but I understand it should not be "that hard"™, it would be basically doing some modifications of the kde.org sources, the capacity framework and doing some reuse of the existing paypal donation page code.

Anyone up for the work? If so, please contact me!

think that You only need to change form in donations to smth like that:

i not work too much with paypal, so i can't tell You if this is everything what is needed, but if its not all - You will propably only need to add button to KDE paypal account here:
https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_donate-intro-outside

Karol, maybe i wasn't clear enough. I "know" (for some values of know) what has to be done. What i want is someone to do it, not to tell me what i already know ;)

I wonder why only with euros?

I mean, I would be more likely to donate if there is us dollar button.

Albert Astals Cid said...

Xu, why would you more likely to donate? Paypal seamlessly will convert your $ to €. Is it because you know more the value of USD than of EUR?

I'd be happy to make a donation if KDE would accept bitcoin. Not really on-topic, but just saying it because I want it to be heard.

bitcoin, heard.
