Full localisation and theming (9 posts)

    Hey there,
    it has already been discussed, but since no reply from the author appeared, I would like to push it again. Is there a way to do a full localisation? At least dates are shown in English, German "März" appears as "March" which is kind of ugly. Looking into read.php shows that it is put in as ['entry_date'], so we do not seem to be able to put our hands on this.

    Also, I am having some trouble with some hardcoded margins and other stuff that is hard to theme since there is no separate theme file. I fear all my changes will be lost once you throw out an update - is there a way or are there plans to separate theming/styling a little more?

    Thanks in advance!

    I found the solution
    read.php on line 155

    replace
    $output .= ' ' . __('wrote at',$textdomain) . ' ' . date($date_format, $entry['entry_date']) . ':';

    with
    $output .= ' ' . __('wrote at',$textdomain) . ' ' . date_i18n($date_format, $entry['entry_date']) . ':';

    Hi Physalis,

    Sorry for posting on this post in regards to another topic. I don't know any other way to contact you. :o)

    I am using this portfolio plugin.

    I noticed on this post that you found a way to show numbers (1 2 3 4) instead of the current nav bar ('Prev' & 'Next'). However, once the coding changed, it stopped working. Were you able to figure out how to do this again with the newer version?

    Like you said, this plugin is exactly what I need once I get the numbers working. I can't seem to figure it out on my own. Your help would be greatly appreciated- thank you!

    Hi Antonel1,

    very easy in deed. He took up my request and put it into his premium version of the plugin. It features numbers for moving to next slides, so you don't need to hardcode it anywhere ;).

    I bought it when it was new and got a cheap unlimited license, now it is still handy but a bit more expensive if you plan to use it on customer's sites ;).

    Does that help you further? Or isn't buying an option for you ;)?

    All the best
    Eno

    Hi Eno,

    I'm considering other ways to display my portfolio. However, due to time constraints, I was hoping to use this plugin as an alternative if and until I consider changing it. So I'm not sure I should buy the premium version unless I plan use it for a long period of time.

    I thought there was an easy way to implement this in the non premium version. But it seems pretty hard.

    Thank you for you help.

    Hi Antonella,

    I am a big fan of free software and extensions. The first one I ever bought for WordPress was this portfolio plugin since it gave me exactly what I needed, and I used it on at least one project productively. The fancy thing is that it grabs all images connected to one post/page which is very convenient. I haven't observed the development of the free version though.

    Unfortunately, I have no idea how to implement it into the free version. You'd be stuck with a hardcoded solution that breaks each time you update. Aren't there other extensions that can do the numbers trick?

    All the best
    Eno

    Hi Eno,

    The portfolio plugin pro sounds like a great purchase. I may also consider buying it when and if I'm sure I will need it.

    I don't know how to implement it into the free version either. I don't know if there are other extensions that can do the numbers trick. How would I look for it?

    Thanks for all your help!

    Hi Antonella,

    since it's more than its introduction price I would think twice myself as well :). It was a good buy anyway, though I don't use it that much anymore due to different solutions needed from my clients.

    No way to get it into the free version without a tech geek I suppose^^. No way of knowing which plugin would do the trick, but you could either watch out for slideshow plugins and then watch demos/read descriptions or have a more specific Google search, hehe :).

    All the best

    Hello Eno,

    Thanks for all your help. I will use the free version of the plugin for now. If I decide to use it for a longer period of time, then I will consider buying it.

    I will also keep my eyes open for a slideshow that includes the number navigation that I'm looking for.

    Again, thanks for all your help!

    Antonella
