Please move the items that have been processed to "Done" and note the date. They can then be deleted after a while.

See also the Website Project for site development, graphic design discussion and big-improvement discussion (on talk page). This page is intended for fixes and corrections. This is for the (new in Nov 2015) Wordpress website at http://audacityteam.org/ . The P1's etc are only a rough and ready indicator.

Website P1s

Website P2s

  • No Download button on the home page that serves the correct download for the detected platform.
  • RSS feeds fail W3C validation and show empty due to registered trademark in our site title.
  • Page anchors do not take into account the top navbar if present, so load the page somewhere below the intended target.
  • No subscribe to announce button. We only give a clunky link to subscribe yourself.
  • All 'sponsor us' links lead to the donate page. (they used to be a 404)
  • The logo on black does not look as good as on white.
  • No Copyright or Privacy links in footer. So our own copyright page http://audacityteam.org/copyright/ is hard to find. If we ever create a copyright FAQ with answers for [email protected] questions, we would link to that FAQ on the copyright page.

Website P3s

  • Google+ in footer gets us to the right page, but still needs a header change. (no impact on user)

Deliberate choices

  • No ohloh button in footer. ohloh badge is bad for SEO as it is served very slowly indeed.
  • Ads are being experimented with, as a widget.

Broken Internal Links (typically P1)

i.e. links to sites we control

Broken External Links (typically P2)

Other audacityteam pages



Change needed: Should be completely updated then an automated system put in place to keep it updated.


  • No working Donate button. Donate button is now embedded in Donate page but is not using the former key pair encryption.
  • Link to announcements list subscription on audacityteam.org was broken after mailman upgrade "Bug in Mailman version 2.1.16".
  • About/Credits lacked Robert Hänggi (author of Vocal Reduction and Isolation). Now added there and in "About Audacity" in the app.
  • Blanket wrapping of text within words which looks terrible: Believed fixed along the lines of https://wordpress.org/support/topic/turn-off-auto-hyphenation-in-twentytwelve-theme
  • The i18ln FAQ only has the questions. Yikes! Will fix by directing to old site. (Nov 2015)
  • old.audacityteam.org used for past release announcements is a broken link (until Buanzo does the DNS dance). (Nov 2015)
  • Instructions for installing plug-ins still say restart, rather than "use plug-in manager". (Nov 2015)
  • All Pages in left sidebar is confusing (harder to find downloads). (Nov 2015)
  • Audacity 2.1.1vi for Mac not mentioned (Nov 2015)
  • No Translate button (yet) (Nov 2015)
  • 2.1.2 announce is out of date. (Nov 2015)
  • 2.1.2 download win10 text needs rewrite. (Nov 2015)
  • Wordpress doesn't like the download_spacer.png file used in the donwload page. Thinks it's not there. (Nov 2015)
  • No cc-by in footer. (Nov 2015)
  • Nyquist plug-ins page http://web.audacityteam.org/download/nyquistplugins - main contents moved to Download Nyquist Plug-ins. The main website still hosts the plug-in pages, zip files and MP3 clips. (Jan 2102)
  • http://web.audacityteam.org/community/donate moved to its own tab at http://web.audacityteam.org/donate (Jan 2012).
