Support » Plugin: Polylang » Custom home page strings translation

  • Hi,
    I’m customizing this template:
    http://www.showthemes.com/tyler-demo/

    I’m developing the website locally for the moment so I can’t provide you with a link.

    For most of my translations polylang works perfectly well. There is just one problem with my custom home page translation.
    I can’t get the date translated – on the big picture blue area. In the template it’s 11 -14 Dec 2015.
    Would it be possible to add it somehow to the dashboard of the plugin – string translation?

    Many thanks for your help!
    Edyta

    Hi
    Did you translate your dates in Strings translation?

    It doesn’t appear in the String translation. This might be a hint:
    I contacted the theme team and they told me that the date field text on the theme option is related to a database value.
    The related code in index.php is:

    <span class="title"><?php if (isset($ef_options['ef_eventdate'])) {
        echo stripslashes($ef_options ['ef_eventdate']);
    } ?></span>

    whereas:

    $event_date = new EF_Text_Field( 'ef_eventdate', 'Event Date' );

    Thanks

    the date field text on the theme option

    So you can create a wpml-config.xml to handle this translation.

    Ok, I will try to understand that and get back to you with the result.
    Thanks a lot.

    Hi aganin,
    I researched a bit and I’m confused. I understand that I should put the wpml-config.xml in the polylang directory. If I got it right I need something like this:

    <wpml-config>
        <admin-texts>
            <key name="my_plugins_options">
                <key name="option_name" />
            </key>
        </admin-texts>
    </wpml-config>

    My question would be how do I look for the first / second key…
    Many tanks!

    Hi,
    Is wpml-config.xml still supportend? I’ve tried to add option names from database, put it in the polylang / theme file and still not working.

    <wpml-config>
        <admin-texts>
            <key name="event_framework">
                <key name="ef_herotagline" />
            </key>
        </admin-texts>
    </wpml-config>

    Thanks in advance.

    Did you upload it in /wp-content/polylang/ (create the directory if it does not exist).

    It’s not in /wp-content/plugins/polylang/.

    EDIT: name your directory polylang in lower characters.

    I’ve tried the directory polylang as well. No luck.

    As in my database in fact the option I want to change is “eventframework[ef_herotagline]” I’ve tried this:

    <wpml-config>
        <admin-texts>
            <key name="event_framework">
                <key name="eventframework[ef_herotagline]" />
            </key>
        </admin-texts>
    </wpml-config>

    The result is not better. Does it matter that in the event_framework option table there are other options besides the “ef_herotagline”? Anyways I tried to list all the options from event_framework and still nothing.

    Thank you in advance.

    Your theme is not freely available so it’s difficult to help you.
    But you can ask support to your theme author.

    Ok, thank you for your time.
    All the best
