  • Resolved LeChevalierKANI


    Hi everyone,

    I want to dig out a link from a code file and modify the text to translate it to French. I believe the link is created dynamically as I am having difficulties finding it. It also comes from the nextgen gallery plugin code files.

    Can someone help? I am familiar with programming and php. No expert yet though.

    Here’s the url:

    I want ‘[Show as slideshow]’ to read ‘[Lancer le diaporama]’ instead.

    Fingers crossed…

    Have you tried deactivating plugins to explore whether any could be responsible?

    The text is specific to the plugin but I need to figure out how to target the right file(s) and line(s) of code. That way I will be able to translate.

    You don’t need to hack the plugin to translate it.
    It looks like your using the nextGEN gallery plugin which already has multiple languages.
    Scroll down to “*Get Translations for your own language” and you’ll see the link. You need to download the translation package zip.

    Thanks David, I followed all instructions but it is not working.
    It must be something minor.

    My wpconfig file is set to French.
    I uploaded the package as and where specified. Do I need to reset/reinstall the package?

    It should work…

    I don’t use the nextGEN gallery translation package very often so I don’t know the details of it’s usage. If you followed their instruction, then your right, it should work.
    I would shoot a quick email to their support, they would be the best to solve that very quickly.
    If you had to hack the plugin, I guess you could, but I would only do that as a last resort.

    I think the nextgen settings allow you to edit that particular text.
    Galkey > options > gallery

    Gallery > Options > Gallery


    You are absolutely right! It works. Thank you and to David too!


    You’re welcome.
    (My first help – I only saw your question because I was posting my own problem haha)
