Description Rainer Bielefeld 2013-05-24 11:50:46 UTC
Created attachment 80727 [details] Screenshot Splash Screen Splash Screen shows <http://www.openoffice.org/website/welcome/credits.html>, what does not exist. Installation dialogs and Menu 'Help -> About' show <http://www.openoffice.org/welcome/credits.html>, what welcomes visitors with "Last updated: 2010-11-15", so that this is not a good alternative. So AOO should 1 - create an appropriate Credits.html (may be already exists, I don't know) 2 - use correct link on all splash screens and dialogs So this one is a little related to "Bug 84613 - Credits URL in About box and splash screen no longer maintained", but not a real DUP (complained link here is different to the ones mentioned there).
Comment 1 Rainer Bielefeld 2013-05-24 11:51:49 UTC
Should have mentioned: "Error 404!" when I ty the URL
Comment 2 Andrea Pescetti 2013-06-12 07:59:10 UTC
The "Credits" link has already been fixed independently. The only remaining issue is the URL written in the splash screen image. For the record, the file to be changed is https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/openoffice/trunk/main/default_images/introabout/intro.png and this will be part of the ongoing logo refresh: https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/OOOUSERS/Product+Logo+Use

Created attachment 86001 [details] Mockup with removed URL and added ASF logo
Comment 4 Matthias Seidel 2017-04-14 12:42:28 UTC
The easy way would be to remove the URL completely. I don't think it is recognized and a clickable link is in the about dialog. Maybe we should add back the (new) ASF logo?

Since only 2 graphics are changed and no code is involved, I think this would be a nice visual "enhancement" for 4.1.4. So I will ask for release blocker.
Comment 9 Matthias Seidel 2017-08-23 12:09:55 UTC
Although 4.1.4 is only a "minor" release I think it is more of a "new beginning" for AOO. So I would like to give our users and our board a slight hint of that fact. r1791815 contains only changes for 2 graphics, trunk builds with it for months. And this would fix a long standing bug (since 2013).
