Support » Theme: OceanWP » placeholder Search cannot be translated

  • magdizajn78


    Hi, i always work with oceanwp theme and so far there was no issue with the search related texts to translate with loco translate, so i could translate easily all of them, until now. I could translate all the search related phrases, like Sorry, but nothing matched your search terms. Please try again with different keywords., You searched for: etc text, except the Search placeholder word in the search widget form of the sidebar.
    There was an update and all the translations were gone (from the child theme!! which I think is strange :/ ), so I had to rewrite them all. However previously i didn’t do that, now i translated the main theme too (not only the child theme), but i still cannot override the search form placeholder text. Could you explain what happened and where else should I translate this?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    That’s odd. You should be able to translate the theme like before. I’ll test the issue on my end to check why it is happening.



    There has been a change in searchform.php. Version of theme 1.7.8. and before is working. Version of theme above 1.7.8. is not working.



    Amit Singh & janv01 Thank you both! Do you know if this will be fixed in the next version?

    same issue here. the placeholder for search widget cannot be translated. thank you



    Just add one case.

    Thanks for the good theme.
