Support » Plugin: Simple Image Widget » Can't add new translation

  • Resolved katazina


    I found what’s causing the problem.

    In the simple-image-widget.php, line 64
    you forgot to put a / before the ‘languages/’

    this is how it should be:
    load_plugin_textdomain( ‘simple-image-widget’, false, dirname( plugin_basename( __FILE__ ) ) . ‘/languages/’ );

    Apart from that, thanks the plugin.

    Hi katazina,

    Thanks for letting me know about the issue. I’ve updated the code on GitHub. Let me know if this looks like it’ll help and I can release it here as well.



    modify the load_textdomain line to this:
    load_textdomain( ‘simple-image-widget’, WP_LANG_DIR . ‘/simple-image-widget/simple-image-widget-‘ . $locale . ‘.mo’ );

    I don’t know why, but it needs the plugin name and the “-“
    If it is in, then it will be working.

    If you’re using the version from GitHub, just change the name of your translation file to remove the plugin name and dash and everything will work.

    While testing, I realized that the widget was loading before the text domain, so the name and description weren’t being filtered. The latest update fixes that issue as well.

    Sorry for the late answer, it’s ok 🙂 Thanks
