    Hi Jan,

    I decided to make a new thread so this discussion will be easier to folow by other users running into the same problem.

    It took WPML some time and it is still not solved.
    I am sending you the URL of the thread because they intend to contact you:
    https://wpml.org/forums/topic/ajax-calls-not-translated/#post-805590

    It contains some information that goes beyond my capabilities. Anyway you now know what they will be talking about.

    I am about to let this issue go. If they have added something to your code to make it work, that would mean that either i cannot update the plugin or that i have to add these lines after each update and i do not want to get into code. One has to know one’s limitations. (This is hypothetic because the issue is not solved, although they claim it is)

    Since the majority of my clients is dutch it should not be a disaster if i can use this widget only on my dutch site. However it is a shame because i find this unique widget a real plus for my site that i would like to use it on all languages. But you can’t always get what you want.

    Best regards,
    John

    Hi John,

    I am not yet approached by WPML but looked at the thread.
    Free translation plugins as qTranslate X are working fine so why is it so difficult for WPML to solve it.
    In principle it is a WPML issue but lets be practical and I will add to the next release the few lines of code to my plugin.
    For me it is not 100% clear if you (or WPML) tested it and did it work?
    This is important because I do not like to install WPML and go through all the hassle to get is operational.
    Please let me know.

    Regards,

    Jan

    Hi Jan,

    A little update: checking a few hours later it seemed that the code WPML introduced worked. Not completely, they made a typo which made a booked appartment appear free. I have not updated the plugin while WPML was looking at the issue and i had to update to the last version. Now all the changes they made are gone ofcourse.
    WPML have annpounced that they will close the issue and like i said i will let is issue go, with reluctance.

    Regards,
    John

    Hi Jan,

    We just crossed messages.
    You can see in the thread thay WPML does not answer with the same speed as you do. I Just send them a final message that i was letting this issue go and addressed my disappointment.
    Like i said the widget worked, but only in english my appartment Allegre came up as “EN_Allegre” and the widget answered incorrectly labelling this appartment as free when in reality it was booked. Must have been a typo somewhere. I can not redo a test because i updated the plugin and the WPML code is overwritten.
    So it did work in 3 languages as it should and in one language it worked partially. I can not assess where and which typo was made, I really appreciate your willingness to add these few lines, but the lines of code can not be 100% correct.

    Best regards,
    John

    Hi John,

    Ok I will not add the code in the next release. But if you change your mind I can.
    Regards,

    Jan

    Hi Jan,

    It is not a question of me changing my mind. If it was up to me i would be happy of the code was added. But it was not without faults and considering your remarks of not being able to test it, i think it would not be wise to add code of which we know that it is not completely correct.
    I myself can not judge the code added by WPML, i mean i can not see where the typo was made. By the way, they once again have stated that they would contact you in the thread:
    https://wpml.org/forums/topic/ajax-calls-not-translated/page/2/#post-806079
    I hope you can reopen this issue as soon as they have contacted you and the unclarity on their code is solved.

    Thanks and regards
    John

    Hi John,

    I am sure the type is not in the few lines of code I need to add. The type most likely is in the translation strings.

    Regards,

    Jan

    Hi Jan,

    I checked the translation strings i translated again and could not find a mistake, but then again there is no way to test this.
    If there is a way that i could test these few lines of code, without you having to release a next version, i would be happy to do so.

    Regards,
    John

    HI John,

    I added the lines of code to the next release 1.7.0. This version will be released soon. The lines of code do not harm the normal working.

    Hi John,

    Version 1.7.0 is released

    Hi Jan,

    Thanks, but unfortunately it does not work, still dutch answers in non dutch sites. (I updated the plugin, flushed all caches)

    Funny thing with the other languages the datepicker for date in does not pop up. The datepicker for date out pops up but does not accept an entry.
    You can not enter a date through the keyboard either. I typed dates in a wordprocessor and copy pasted them. That worked, unfortunately with dutch answers.

    Best regards,
    John

    Hi John,

    This gets to complicated and difficult to debug. I removed the lines of code and hope everything is back to normal.
    Version 1.7.0.1 just released.

    Regards,

    Jan

    Hi Jan,

    Everything is back to normal after this last release.
    Thanks for all your efforts and i understand that this gets too complicated. I will make do with the plugin as it is and i am very happy with what it offers at this moment.

    The ease with which WPML closed this issue after having offered not a workable solution is very disappointing. I wonder whether they will get in contact with you, but i do not expect a whole lot.

    Thanks and regards,

    Hi Jan,

    As a fallback scenario i plan to show the calenders on the non dutch sites at a later stage. I have seen the explanation how to change the red “booked” blocks to another color. Is there a similar way to change the voilet “reserved” blocks to another color ? I find the voilet a little bit too close to the red.

    Thanks,
    John

    Hi John,

    Yes there is, use .cal_reserved class to change the background color.

    Regards,

    Jan
