Description (last modified by emmapeel)

The link to 'Get involved should not point to the old volunteer page, now that we have the new community page.

The link should be localized, as the manual and others on that page, although for the moment there are no translations enabled, but we can do some .htacess foo meanwhile on the community portal as we plan to translate it and it has a lot of content.

Here is a patch:

Kathy and I went ahead and changed the code to construct the "Get Involved" link programmatically (that way we are ready for the community portal's localized future). This does mean that someone needs to add some temporary magic on the website side (as emmapeel mentioned in the ticket description). Do we need to file a new ticket for that work? All links that look like this:

https://community.torproject.org/STUFF

need to redirect to:

https://community.torproject.org/

Okay, looks good to me. Thanks! Let's see how this looks in the nightly. Merged as commit 656109f96a26f8b4a38f0ecfd3985590f272f76d.

#33671 is a duplicate. I am reopening this ticket so we remember to merge this change into Tor Browser stable. Alternatively, we could wait for Tor Browser 9.5, although this change is fairly low risk and we have had it on alpha for a while.
