[resolved] Too less individual (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I think the plugin would be great for my esocteric site but unfortunately my site is in German language and we use a different date format (dd.mm.yyyy or dd. Month yyyy). I've tried to change it in the public.php but it won't work. So is there a chance to get different options to set date-formates and to change the month-names too?
    I'm not very familiar with php so an more user-friendly admin-section would be great and appreciated.

    best regards,

    Nina

    Translation of plugins is generally something done by volunteers other than the author, simply because no plugin author can write in every language on the planet.

    In this situation, however, php may already have built this kind of multi-language functionality into their programming language in a way I could use it, without having to speak many new languages. So, I will investigate immediately and post an answer here as soon as I have something to report.

    Thank you for taking the time to report this issue.

    After reviewing all of the issues involved, especially checking how php handles language with dates, I realize that any effort I make in this direction will only be wasted. Why? Because it is not following the WordPress standards for Internationalization (i.e. - translation and other localization):
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Writing_a_Plugin#Internationalizing_Your_Plugin

    Therefore, I must put out the challenge to whoever is reading this (I'll repeat it on the Plugin Description page): if you would like to do the translation to any other language (see link above), please contact the Plugin author at http://jonradio.com/contact-us/
    I'll do my part and internationalize the plugin so that it can use your language files.

    I wish there was an instant solution, but there just isn't.
