Are POT Files Created Automatically? (2 posts)

    Hi,

    I don't know if I've missed something on this page...
    http://codex.wordpress.org/I18n_for_WordPress_Developers

    But I can't figure out if POT files are generated automatically or do I need to create them and add each entry?

    I assume it is automated but I added...

    <?php _e("Quick Start Instructions");?>

    To a page in my plugin and the file is not there. When I had a copy of a POT file there it was not updated. I'm clueless so far about how to make localisation happen for my plugin. Do I need to open my plugin in a blog that uses a different language to trigger the translation, POT file and MO files to be created?

    Thanks
    Ryan
