  • Fatal error: Call to undefined function mb_detect_encoding() in /home/rainbowplay/public_html/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/loco-translate/lib/compiled/gettext.php on line 5

    I have Loco Translate v2.0.16 with WordPress 4.8.3 but I can’t translate nothing. The message is in plugins and themes an error message.

    You need the mbstring PHP extension on your server. This is listed in the system requirements.

    Ask your hosting provider or whoever manages your servers to install it.

    I’m curious though. Loco Translate tries to warn you if this extension is missing, so you shouldn’t see a fatal error. Do you not see any warnings about this before the error occurs? When does the error message appear.
