    Hello, finnj!

    I started using the Frontier Post plugin, and made a translation into Russian in PoEdit. I couldn’t find your e-mail to send it, and decided to register on wordpress.org to contact you this way. You may delete the topic afterwards.
    Here is a link for downloading
    https://cloud.mail.ru/public/6UWj/XzvMrU27y

    There are some notes to the plugin.
    1. The string “number of tags to edit on the input form” is displayed in the dashboard on Advanced settings page, but before the table (not in the correct field).
    2. I couldn’t set the date format for future post. Now it is Y-m-d H:m:s (local setting are different – d.m.Y H:m). By the way, the widget also doesn’t allow to choose similar format (d.m.Y at least), though I understand that complete list might be too long.
    3. Excerpt length for the My Posts page is not the same as set in WordPress (in functions.php in my case), and I couldn’t find how to change it. Now it is more than 50 words.
    4.The string “Sorry, you do not have any posts (yet)” is displayed on all pages: My Drafts, My Approvals and My Posts. It sounds strange on Draft and Approval pages. So, I decided to translate it as “There are no posts at the moment” to fit all of them.
    5. Post info in My Posts page needs more flexible control, I think. I manually changed link colors, text colors and size, added FontAwesome icons to Edit/View/Delete/Appprove links (.png icons didn’t fit the design and send more http requests as I know), did some other adjustments. It was not so easy, I must say. Probably you could add a Styling page in the dashboard for this.
    6. I didn’t find how to assign an Editor responsible for post moderation (the one who can approve, edit authors’ posts). In my case it would be useful to assign an Editor to a specific category (several categories) or to specific users, for example.

    All in all, the plugin is really useful and well managed compared to other that I tried. Thank you for this!

    Vitaly.

    An addition to previous notes.
    7. Translation string “Excerpt” – used in dashboard List of My Posts layout and as a title for Excerpt filed in the editor form. Should be different. “Detailed list with excerpt” – for dashboard and “Excerpt” – for the editor.
    8. frontier-approve-post.php – string 56 – Insert of Cancel button
    value=”<?php _e(“Cancel”, “frontier-post”); ?> ”
    In preview the button title has a redundant space at the end because of the space after ?> in the code.

    Thank you for the replies, finnj!

    Future posts – Planned posts. They are displayed in My Posts page along with draft and pending posts. Translation string for it is “Future”. It is displayed in My posts status with the date in brackets after. And the date format is not local and not configurable through .php files so far.

    One more thing.
    Alert massages to delete / approve posts are stored in .php files that can’t be configured like forms (in user templates folder). It was necessary to change some text. The solution was to add some tricks through .css with :after styling. Not very versatile, though.

    Hi Vitaly,

    I have added your updated Russian translation – Thanks

    I looked through the list of issues you reported, fixed some in version 4.3.0 – Please create separate tickets for issues or enhancement ideas – It is to difficult to manage a long list, and other users won’s see it.

    See my comments:

    1. The string “number of tags to edit on the input form” is displayed in the dashboard on Advanced settings page, but before the table (not in the correct field).
    finnj: Text is at the right location, can’t see it is misplaced

    2. I couldn’t set the date format for future post. Now it is Y-m-d H:m:s (local setting are different – d.m.Y H:m). By the way, the widget also doesn’t allow to choose similar format (d.m.Y at least), though I understand that complete list might be too long.
    finnj: Check version 4.3.0, in addition to a long list of options, the default date time seetings will always be added to the list.

    3. Excerpt length for the My Posts page is not the same as set in WordPress (in functions.php in my case), and I couldn’t find how to change it. Now it is more than 50 words.
    finnj: Should be fixed in version 4.3.0

    4.The string “Sorry, you do not have any posts (yet)” is displayed on all pages: My Drafts, My Approvals and My Posts. It sounds strange on Draft and Approval pages. So, I decided to translate it as “There are no posts at the moment” to fit all of them.
    finnj: I am not changing default text

    5. Post info in My Posts page needs more flexible control, I think. I manually changed link colors, text colors and size, added FontAwesome icons to Edit/View/Delete/Appprove links (.png icons didn’t fit the design and send more http requests as I know), did some other adjustments. It was not so easy, I must say. Probably you could add a Styling page in the dashboard for this.
    finnj: More CSS id’s added for enhanced control – If you really want to change this, you can use template forms for this

    6. I didn’t find how to assign an Editor responsible for post moderation (the one who can approve, edit authors’ posts). In my case it would be useful to assign an Editor to a specific category (several categories) or to specific users, for example.
    finnj: I will consider this for future releases

    7. Translation string “Excerpt” – used in dashboard List of My Posts layout and as a title for Excerpt filed in the editor form. Should be different. “Detailed list with excerpt” – for dashboard and “Excerpt” – for the editor.
    finnj: I do not agree, will keep it as it is, sorry

    8. frontier-approve-post.php – string 56 – Insert of Cancel button
    value=”<?php _e(“Cancel”, “frontier-post”); ?> ”
    In preview the button title has a redundant space at the end because of the space after ?> in the code.
    finnj: Fixed
