  • English - default, always included
  • German (de_DE): Deutsch - immer dabei! Download auch via deckerweb.de
  • For custom and update-secure language files please upload them to /wp-content/languages/genesis-dashboard-news/ (just create this folder) - This enables you to use fully custom translations that won't be overridden on plugin updates. Also, complete custom English wording is possible with that as well, just use a language file like genesis-dashboard-news-en_US.mo/.po to achieve that.

Easy plugin translation platform with GlotPress tool: Translate "Genesis Dashboard News"...

Note: All my plugins are internationalized/ translateable by default. This is very important for all users worldwide. So please contribute your language to the plugin to make it even more useful. For translating I recommend the awesome "Codestyling Localization" plugin and for validating the "Poedit Editor", which works fine on Windows, Mac and Linux.

Additional Info

Idea Behind / Philosophy: I always wanted a little Dashboard Widget for Genesis with recent news pulled in. I don't like the most other theme shop dashboard widgets with feeds, so I made mine configurable - and finally, since version 1.5 customizeable via filters! This way you can use it for your clients: pull in your company's feed, add your own title, footer info and help tab info. The fastest way to get your news feed into your client's dashboard. Or just use it the way, it was intended: be informed about Genesis. Know what's going on in the community, and the ecosystem - new child theme releases, extension plugins, tutorials, code snippets... Enjoy :)
