Since the website and wiki have been redesigned, the text is not always readable. The footer text overwrites other text, the links are not uniform colors, and the colors use blend and blur the text.

What is the proper procedure to report these and other issues with this website? I have reported bugs in launchpad against , but the team that maintains the ubuntu website is not part of that project. It is used instead for the wiki websites only.

The ubuntu-website project on Launchpad is the right place. Their remit covers all the Ubuntu.* domain websites.

Whether or not you get any answers is another question. I suggest you post the bug there first and then follow the tip on the contact us page, and contact the webmasters:

If you have suggestions or corrections for or, email us at or

Edit: I just had a little rummage around. I saw one of your bugs there and if I did triage there I would close that bug. You're using a beta browser. The footer works just fine in Firefox 3.6 and the latest chromium. The bug is therefore most likely in Firefox and you should report it to Mozilla, not Ubuntu.

Thanks for the response. Unfortunately, when the bug is reported to launchpad, the website team will close it as "wrong place to report against – charlie-tca Nov 27 '10 at 1:56
That's just not true. Just look at the hot bugs. I can see at least three triaged bugs there that are about the main website. – Oli Nov 27 '10 at 2:04
@charlie-tca edited: Just noticed that you're submitting bugs from Firefox 4 Beta. Sorry but nobody is going to take a rendering bug seriously from a beta browser. You need to take it up with Mozilla as it's most likely their issue. – Oli Nov 27 '10 at 2:12
@Oli: How would you recommend those of us testing Natty report bugs? The beta browser is installed in Natty be default. I did not choose to install it. Since I am running Natty as a tester,, I am not to report bugs? – charlie-tca Nov 27 '10 at 3:28
@João How it that relevant to this question? – Oli Nov 27 '10 at 17:07
