Editing content

The most frequently updated content sections live in the below locations:

Section File
Media Coverage src/data/news/coverage.yml
Decred Journals src/data/news/decred_journals.yml
Software releases src/data/news/software_releases.yml
Press releases src/content/news/*.md
Wallets src/data/wallets/wallets.yml
Community channels src/data/community/channels.yml
Support channels src/data/community/support.yml
Publications src/data/community/publications.yml
Exchanges src/data/exchanges/*.yml

The other sections live under src/layouts. These pages are implemented as Hugo templates and are localized. The message catalogs can be found in src/i18n. When making changes in the templates, you'll want to keep the strings in the catalogs, please follow the naming scheme in the existing templates.

Importing new translations and content updates

When translations are added/updated in Transifex, pull the updates:


When you run this for the first time, you'll be asked to log in with your Transifex username/password.

To push the changes to staging:

git commit -m "Translation update"
git push origin

Updating the message catalog

When the master content changes in the HTML files, you'll need to regenerate the message catalog and push it to Transifex so that translators can update the localized message catalogs:
