In some explanations, i ask to edit a php file. Be careful to edit them with a good editor like Notepad++ and open each file with the format “UTF-8 without BOM”.

I’ve entered the url from `Link to this album`, but nothing appears. What’s wrong ?

Be careful, the url than you have to fill is from the RSS link.

I’d like to get the `Picasa for WordPress` interface in my native language. How can i do that?

Edit the file picasa-en_US.po by using a PO file editor such as :
KBabel (Linux) should be available as a package for your Linux distribution, so install the package.
poEdit (Linux/Windows) available from
For french in this example, save it as picasa-fr_FR.po a will be automatically generated.
Put the file in the lang folder (under picasa-for-wordpress), the PO file is just here to generate the MO translation file…

Ok, i’ve done what you explain above, but the `Picasa for WordPress` interface is still in english How to make it works?

Open your wp-config.php file (at the root of your blog) and search for : define ('WPLANG', 'xx_XX'); where xx_XX is your language. If this line doesn’t exist add it in your file. Save your modifications and re-upload the wp-config on your server.

Does `Picasa for WordPress` works with WP-MU?
