This issue is already being dealt with in T11335...
Aug 15 2019
I've improved the texts a bit (see merge request), removing some paragraphs as I saw fit.
It's on KDE's svn server: svn+ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/home/kde/trunk/www/sites/kphotoalbum
Apart from that, I currently have no idea (yet) how that Jekyll thingy works … but probably, the existing PHP code of the news page could be used here?!
Unsplash is not okay :(
The KPA demo database could also be used, to be accessed via kphotoalbum --demo. The images are also a bit dated, but I think we won't have a copyright problem with it.
@tleupold Okay. But i reeaalllyyy have no idea, how i can convert the news site...
I never used KPhotoAlbum, but it looks like very similar to Gwenview. You can view a images in KPA and Gwenview.
Like you can view files with LibreOffice Writer's "open" dialog and Dolphin.
It's very nice that somebody volunteers to rework the site. It's definitely dated. I cared about it the last few years, but I only worked on it under the hood and never touched the design … the most important thing is the News section I think where we announce releases etc. The "Getting involved" part is nice when it comes to the active and former developers, but I don't know if we need the rest here. Perhaps, one should simply advice somebody who wants to join us (a rare case ;-) to log in on our Freenode channel and simply talk with (one of) us. Same for "Testimonials", I'm not sure if we need this. As of "Documentation", I think the only really relevant thing is the "3 Minute Tour" to show what we have/can do, but it definitely needs a makeover. The rest can probably be linked, but the wiki stuff on KDE's servers is most probably also a bit out of date (we simply lack the manpower …)
Exactly! :). I see no Reason to stop supporting KPA.
@KonqiDragon: Seems like you never used KPA (or thought about what you're writing here). It's not "old", it's actively developed and up-to-date. And it serves a complete different purpose than Gwenview. Gwenview is a viewer, KPA is a tagging and archiving program. Don't compare apples and oranges.
It seems like KPhotoAlbum is made for a different usecase than gwenview. KPhotoAlbum seems more about managing and tagging photos than gwenview, which is more like a basic viewer with a few editing features.
Why do KDE need to support the old KPhotoAlbum when we have a modern Gwenview? Let's just stop supporting KPhotoAlbum.
@ognarb Anyway it would be great, to get some help whit the Screenshots.

The text will need some minor correction. For example the default categories were: Persons, Locations, and Keywords and are now Event, Places, People and Token.
@johanneszarl okay, i will do it.
@simonkr Yes, deleting it is ok from my point of view.
@johanneszarl Okay, so is it okay for you when i delete the page also from the Repository?. And whats about the 3minutetour Page?: https://www.kphotoalbum.org/documentation/3minutetour/

Do we need also the Videos page?: https://www.kphotoalbum.org/documentation/videos/ Because the Videos looks a bit Out of date.

@ngraham: I wasn't aware that gwenview ships some KIPI plugins of its own, but here (Debian sid), the remaining KIPI export plugins are still listed in gwenview.
I'm not sure what you mean by "has no way to install them" - the general design of KIPI did not try to install anything at runtime. Plugins are usually installed like any other package via package manager and the KIPI-enabled programs use whatever plugins are available.
Gwenview now gained Purpose support, so from my POV KIPI can go
Gwenview has a way to install the Kipi plugins that's been semi-broken for years so I doubt there are many or any users left. Spectacle shows them if already installed, but has no way to install them. Don't know about KPhotoAlbum. The last I checked, many of the Kipi plugins didn't actually work. And some are now redundant, e.g. Purpose can send via email too.
