Support » Plugin: Participants Database » Localization and Pagination/Search Bug?

  • Resolved pansit


    Hey Roland,
    I was looking for a Plugin like this for quite some time and I coudn’t find anything that substantial. We are running a community site and use your Plugin to give people the ability to sign a list of supporters.
    I came across two problems though:

    We are located in germany and unfortunatly the bigger part of our audience is not familiar with the english language. So I’m wondering if there is a way to translate the part thats shown on the website without digging into the core code. I’m talking about pagination, form labels, submit bottons etc. And if there is no easy way can you give me some help on where to find the related code?

    Secondly, there seems to be a bug in the pagination process. If you search the list for a particular participant, and there are to many results to fit on one screen, the list gets paginated proberly. But if you try to access the other pages the search gets discarded. For example, I search for “Michael”. There are 80 Michaels in my database but only 20 fit on one screen, the results are splitted into four pages. I want to access page two or three, so I click “next” and I get the whole list instead of my search results.

    My english isn’t the best either but I hope I could make myself clear enough so you understand my questions.
    Thanks in advance and keep up the good work…

    This pagination bug was something I worked on a while back. Are you using the latest version? If so, copy the URL that you get when you click on a page selector. That should tell me what’s up.

    To translate the frontend is pretty easy. First, of course, go through all the settings and translate all your messages.

    To get all the rest of them , you will need to modify the templates, which is pretty easy if you’re familiar with HTML. On this page in the section on templates you’ll find the basic instructions:


    wow that was a pretty quick response!

    thank you very much. The pagination problem resolved itself. Not sure what caused it in the first place but I had the latest version installed.

    Also thanks for the tip to look through the templates. I was searching through the files in the js folder and changed the arguments of the sprinf functions. Made it harder for me then it needet to be :-)…
