wp_get_archives change the output string to spanish (8 posts)

    Hey guys I have a real dilemma. I'm working on a site that need to be bilingual and I seem to have everything worked out.

    The only thing is that the sidebar it all in english and I'd like to preserve the dynamic nature of the archives.

    So wp_get_archive gets the month and link to that month. Is there a way for me to change the outputted string to spanish using PHP. Of course only when in categoty-3 which is the spanish side.

    Also I guess I'd have to make that link bring back post in that month only for category-3(spanish).

    here is the website:

    Thanks guys in advanced for the help.

    why wouldn't something like this work?

    <?php $mes = wp_get_archives();
    $new = str_replace("January","Enero",$mes);
    echo $new;
    ?>

    I am trying to do something similar, only with Arabic.

    krisnrg: Unfortunately, since wp_get_archives automatically echos the date display, this will not work.

    So far, the only solution I can think of is to replicate the wp_get_archives function, but without the automatic print.

    Update: Actually, looks like the "echo" option is either due to be added soon or was added in 2.6. See: http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/5654

    The output of wp_get_archives can be localized, you just need to install a language file.

    See http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Localization

    Unfortunately, I am using WordPress MU, so I'm not sure a localized version would work.

    Also, I imagine these won't work for multi-lingual blogs as well, so this may not work for krisnrg. Right?

    If you are using MU - post and ask in their forum:

    I believe the solution would be same for a multi-language single blog as it would be for WordPress MU.

    In any event, I manage to figure something out. It isn't ideal, but it seems to work.

    First, you'll need a new version of wp_get_archives that adds an echo option. This could be added as a plugin or just in custom functions.php file for your template.

    Here is the code I used (basically just copied from the ticket I mentioned above):

    <?php
    
    function wp_get_archives_new($args = '') {
    	global $wpdb, $wp_locale;
    
    	$defaults = array(
    		'type' => 'monthly', 'limit' => '',
    		'format' => 'html', 'before' => '',
    		'after' => '', 'show_post_count' => false,
        'echo' => 1
    	);
    
    	$r = wp_parse_args( $args, $defaults );
    	extract( $r, EXTR_SKIP );
    
    	if ( '' == $type )
    		$type = 'monthly';
    
    	if ( '' != $limit ) {
    		$limit = absint($limit);
    		$limit = ' LIMIT '.$limit;
    	}
    
    	// this is what will separate dates on weekly archive links
    	$archive_week_separator = '–';
    
    	// over-ride general date format ? 0 = no: use the date format set in Options, 1 = yes: over-ride
    	$archive_date_format_over_ride = 0;
    
    	// options for daily archive (only if you over-ride the general date format)
    	$archive_day_date_format = 'Y/m/d';
    
    	// options for weekly archive (only if you over-ride the general date format)
    	$archive_week_start_date_format = 'Y/m/d';
    	$archive_week_end_date_format	= 'Y/m/d';
    
    	if ( !$archive_date_format_over_ride ) {
    		$archive_day_date_format = get_option('date_format');
    		$archive_week_start_date_format = get_option('date_format');
    		$archive_week_end_date_format = get_option('date_format');
    	}
    
      // Place to accrue text if we're not echoing...
      $output = ''; 
    
    	//filters
    	$where = apply_filters('getarchives_where', "WHERE post_type = 'post' AND post_status = 'publish'", $r );
    	$join = apply_filters('getarchives_join', "", $r);

    		if ( !isset( $cache[ $key ] ) ) {

      if ( $echo )
        echo $output;
      else
     	  return $output;
    }
    
    ?>

    Then, I created a function to translate the months (I am working in Farsi, but Spanish should work just as well). You could place this in either the plugin or the functions.php file I mentioned.

    //translate_date()
    //Gets the featured post and outputs the html
    function translate_date($content, $language_option) {
      $english = array('January', 'February', 'March', 'April', 'May', 'June', 'July', 'August', 'September', 'October', 'November', 'December');
    
      if($language_option = "farsi")
        $language = array('ژانویه', 'feb', 'مارس', 'آوریل', 'مه', 'ژوئن', 'ژوئیه', 'اوت', 'سپتامبر', 'اکتبر', 'نوامبر', 'دسامبر');
    
      return str_replace($english, $language, $content);
    
    }

    Finally, this is the code in the sidebar of my template:

    echo translate_date(wp_get_archives_new('type=monthly&show_post_count=1&echo=0'), "farsi");

    Now, this isn't perfect, because you'll have to call the function in a bunch of other places, such as the headers of archive pages. Since the_time() automatically echos, you need to replace that. Here is the code I used for the_time():

    echo translate_date(apply_filters('the_time', get_the_time("F"), "F"), "farsi");

    The "F" is the type of date display, in this case just the full month. You could also do "j F Y", which would look like "1 Enero 2008". Just make sure to change the date display in both places.

    I hope this helps.
