[resolved] Loco running, translated but not visible (9 posts)

    Hi, I installed the plugin, got it working, translated the theme I have which is a shop theme that works with Woocommerce.
    I generated the po and the mo, all well but for some reason even after syncing, the shop elements I translated through the theme do not appear translated on the frontend. even manually downloaded the po and mo and put them on server and replaced the existing ones... nada... what could be the curious case?

    Can you verify whether the MO is valid? email it to support at localise dot biz if you're not sure.

    A few options

    1. Try dragging it onto this:
    http://www.gnu.org/software/gettext/manual/gettext.html#msgunfmt-Invocation

    2. Run the Gettext msgunfmt program against it
    http://www.gnu.org/software/gettext/manual/gettext.html#msgunfmt-Invocation

    3. Write some PHP code that calls gettext() on it.

    Dragged it there, used that to create new files, still same. wordpress will not show the translated shop theme. All the other stuff is difficult for me. Not a developer (but learning this way might just be the case) ;)

    Ok, well I'm afraid that Loco's job is to generate these files and it sounds like they're valid.

    All I can suggest is to check you're loading your text domain correctly and read up on WP localisation practices. http://codex.wordpress.org/Translating_WordPress

    solved it, something really stupid (usually is), the naming convention of the po and mo in the theme folder contained in the master language folder in wp-content was wrong. It said default instead of 'theretailer-nl_NL'. Grrrrr ;)
    Thnx for your help though!

    Glad you've sorted it.
