How do I change the language of the skin? (3 posts)

    I searched the forum but found nothing relating to this. I am currently running 'Sharepoint like' theme, but the posts have the comment links in I think Greek, although the rest is in ENglish. I relly like the skin and was wondering if it is possible to change these couple of repeated words into English.

    The blog is http://www.blog.uponnothing.co.uk if you want to see what I mean.

    Thanks.

    It's Russian. Cute.

    Okay, not funny for you.

    In your index.php and/or single.php template files, search for this:

    <div class="meta">

    After that you will see a bunch of character codes. They are the letter equivalent of Russian alphabet. Categories look like "Категория: " on the screen but in the code they look like this:

    &amp;#1050;&amp;#1072;&amp;#1090;&amp;#1077;&amp;#1075;&amp;#1086;&amp;#1088;&amp;#1080;&amp;#1103;:

    followed by the link to the article and it's title. Delete those characters and replace them with whatever you want it to say, which normally should be "Categories:".

    For the "Коментари", look under the feedback class that looks like this:

    <div class="feedback" align="right">

    And you will see a link to the article's comments and the same bunch of character codes as above. Carefully change those to "Comments" in English.

    And welcome to the world of bilingual WordPress Themes. It's actually charming. BUT annoying, I know. ;-)

    Many thanks for the help, I didn't realise that the characters would be in code like that, my skills are only capable of dealing with the most simple html.

    I managed to change it without any problems to English now.

    All the best.
