  • Hardcoded things in English that you cannot modify in a language template

    Hello.

    My board administrator told me that there was things impossible to translate without a hack. Here is what seems to be impossible to include in a template :
    • On each page : "You may not post attachments". The word "not" isn't translatable with templates.

    • months of the year (for the calendar and user profils)

    • many hierarchies :
      - Forums > Search > Post Results
      - Forums > Search > Thread Results
      - Forums > Panneau de contrôle de Lumina > Editer la liste Buddy
      - Forums > Panneau de contrôle de Lumina > Editer la liste Ignore

      showthread.php : "Pas thread spécifié"

    • newreply.php : the descriptions of javascript buttons

    That is all I have seen so far.
    Could you please make it available for templates in all futur releases (2.3.1 and 3.0.0) ?

    Thanks !

    This will not happen in v2.x.x. It is however, already a feature in v3.x.x

      Yeah, they already have a totally new language translation system for version 3.x.x

        Lumina,

        While it's true that, strictly speaking, changing those would be "hacking", the changes are so subtle and so minor - you're just changing words between sigle or double quotes, you're not changing any logic in the code that you shouldn't be afraid to do it.

        I've completely translated my board, including the words in the .php files. PM me if you'd like more details.

        Au revoir,
        Dennis

          Au revoir,
          No, you don't understand.
          I know how to modify this outside the template. But if I do it this way, I have to do it with each new version of vBulletin !

          I think our boards started at vBulletin 2.2.2, so that means we had 7 changes of version until now. We also have a complete list of 80 suggested little hacks. So if we want to add all those changes to the boards, that means 7 * 80 = 560 times a modification of our boards !

          That is why I ask for things being added to the regular version of the vBulletin.
