Support » Plugin: Very Simple Contact Form » Captcha Label Shortcode

  • Hi,
    I am using polylang on a site to have multilanguage options.
    I wanted to edit the captcha_label for the english version and the spanish version, but, since the functionality is now in the settings page, whatever new label text I use in there becomes static in a single language ๐Ÿ™
    I was wondering if you could revert to having the shortcode attribute available for the label on the captcha field, so I can insert the appropriate translations via the shortcode on each language-version of my contact pages?
    I have made the mod myself, but, of course, it will be lost when/if the plugin changes or updates.
    Thank you in advance!

    Hi,

    And what about the other labels? How do you translate them? I donโ€™t understand why the shortcode attribute was helpful for you while making your form multilingual. Or do you have multiple contact forms; one for each language?

    Hi Guido,
    Thank you for your reply.
    If I leave the labels, in settings page, blank (with your greyed out default text), they automatically translate when your contact form shows up.
    However, if I want to change a label from its default values (and the ONLY one I need to change is the captcha label, since people find the default version confusing), and I type in the new label in the settings page, then that does NOT translate ๐Ÿ™
    This is why I would want to be able to set the captcha label via shortcode attributes, as opposed to via the settings page.

    Hi,

    The auto translation only works when it is translated into that language already. So only when plugin translation is available on this page, am I right?

    Guido

    Yes, that is correct. Auto-translation happens IF the area on the Settings page is left blank (with your default text) AND the translation is available in the po-mo files.
    Once a user inserts their own customized text in the settings area, then the auto-translation does not happen for that field.
    I have changed the po-mo ES files to include the translation for the Privacy checkbox text, since this had not already been included, and that text did not autotranslate. However, I had no requirement to use custom text there.
    I imagine I could have done the same with the Cpatcha label text (just changed the strings in the GB and ES files), but I preferred to use the shortcode attribute for that, so the website owner could change that text to their liking (in both languages).
    Thank you for your replies!

    Hi,

    When I get back from my trip I will add the shortcode attribute for the captcha again, no problem.

    Meanwhile, are you willing to complete the Spanisch translation? And are you willing to become a translation editor for my plugin, so you can approve Spanish translation?

    Hi again,

    Thought about it some more..
    The problem with the shortcode attribute is, you cannot add an attribute for each language. So if you have a multi-language site, you must use a different form for each language, when using this atribute.

    Hi @danielj7

    Iโ€™m thinking about a plugin update which includes all label (shortcode) attributes, so you will be able to change labels via attributes again, instead of the settingspage.
