Support » Requests and Feedback » Suggestion : codex page for SVN installation of non-English version of WordPress

  • Sabinou



    This is NOT a help request (my previous thread gave that wrong impression, so today I make the precision clearly), but rather, I’m suggesting something that, in my eyes, would make wordpress better 🙂

    In short, I’d very much like to suggest that the installation of a non-English version of wordpress via subversion could be explained in simple terms in the Codex.

    At the present time, the page only concerns English installations of wordress.

    I saw various people trying to install French or other versions of WordPress with subversion, but few of them succeeded, and every time it was an old or incomplete page.

    I think this is something that could be improved 🙂

    I’m sorry I can’t contribute myself with such a page, not even a draft (and yet, I know I may look like a dick to suggest something I can’t do), but I really believe this is a dark side of Worpdpress, that would make wordpress better if it was made clearer.

    If you’ve done it yourself, feel free to start a new page and put down whatever you can. Otherwise, I agree that it’s a good idea, it just needs someone with expeience of the concept to write it 😉



    Well, I didn’t manage to do it and eventually resorted to the old-school FTP upload of an already localized version. Impossible to get subversion to add the language file, let’s not even talk about editing the wp_lang setting in wp-config (I think this would rather call for a script, doing a svp-install, fetching somewhere the language file, and then doing the edit).
    This is precisely why I concluded with an apology for being a dick who’s suggesting something he’s unable to do himself :-/

    Nah, you’re not being a dick 🙂

    This is a really awesome idea, and I can’t sort it out either.
