  • [Beta 5] Language issues and typos

    Hello Freddie !
    Here is the promised Beta 5's thread about language issues.

    > AdminCP > left menu

    Collapse All and Expand All stem from collapse_all_x and expand_all_x. When translating those vbphrases we expect the "x" to appear. If you do not give any parameter, then the phrase is broken in French or other languages.

    Suggested solution : add two new vbphrases, collapse_all and expand_all, and use them here.

      Small inconsistency :

      > AdminCP > left menu

      Add New + a singular for all items but Avatars.

      Suggested solution : change to plurals for Add New Post Icons, Add New Smilies, etc.

        Another small inconsistency :

        > AdminCP > left menu

        $vbphrase[announcement_manager]
        $vbphrase[add_new_announcement]

        ... stem from Control Panel Global instead of Control Panel Home Pages.

        Suggested solution : to use the ones from Control Panel Home Pages for the left menu, and to create an Announcement group for the two other vbphrases.


        [edit : the following was a mistake from me]
        //> AdminCP > left menu
        //Diagnostics is hardcoded.

          I see diagnostics coming from $vbphrase['diagnostics']

            Ah true !
            I might have tested with an exact match using "diagno" instead of "Diagno".

            Well, I will report again the same problem as here :
            http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showp...6&postcount=75

            > AdminCP > Style Manager
            /admincp/template.php?do=modify&group=&expandset=1

            Some template groups are using vBphrases :
            - Buddy List ($vbphrase[buddy_list])
            - Calendar ($vbphrase[calendar])
            - FAQ ($vbphrase[faq])
            - Private Message ($vbphrase[private_message])
            - Poll ($vbphrase[poll])
            - Post Icon ($vbphrase[post_icon])
            - Registration ($vbphrase[registration])
            - User Reputation (...)
            - Search (...)
            - Show Groups (...)
            - User Control Panel (...)
            - User Note (...)
            - Who's Online (...)

            But when we export the style file, those translations are included with the exported file ! And so there might be issues when sharing a style from somewhere where French is used, to somewhere where German is used.

            Suggested solution :
            When exporting, do not use translations, keep standard English names for groups inside the XML file. But you can keep translated names inside the admincp, and unhardcode all the remaining group names not listed here (Announcement, Attachment List, ...).

              There are still hard coded group names since they are not going to be done until the front end is phrased (see in adminfunctions_template.php lines 2333 - 2384)
              Code:
              	// unphrased as yet - will be phrased with front-end phrases
              	'avatarlist' => 'Avatar List',
              	'forumdisplay' => 'Forum Display',
              	'forumhome' => 'Forum Home',
              	'pagenav' => 'Page Navigation',
              	'postbit' => 'Postbit',
              	'im_' => 'Instant Messaging',
              	'memberinfo' => 'Member Info',
              	'memberlist' => 'Member List',
              	'modify' => 'Modify User Option',
              	'new' => 'New Posting',
              	'showthread' => 'Show Thread',
              	'smiliepopup' => 'Smilie Popup',
              	'subscribe' => 'Subscribed Thread',
              	'whoposted' => 'Who Posted',
              	'announce' => 'Announcement',
              	'threadadmin' => 'Thread Administration',
              	'phpinclude' => 'PHP Include Code',
              	'navbar' => 'Navigation / Breadcrumb',
              	'printthread' => 'Printable Thread',
              	'forumjump' => 'Forum Jump Menu',
              	'smilielist' => 'Smilie List',
              	'attachmentlist' => 'Attachment List',
              	'subscription' => 'Paid Subscriptions',

                Templates :
                - FORUMDISPLAY
                - MODIFY
                - register
                - SUBSCRIBE
                - USERCP


                I would like to know if threads older than 1000 days old are displayed or not when selecting <option value="1000" $daysprunesel[1000]>the beginning</option> ?

                Should I translate "the beginning" to :
                - the equivalent of "last 1000 days" ?
                - the equivalent of "always" ?

                I don't want to translate to "always" if it is not from the beginning. You could maybee use value="0" or value="-1" to solve this from people wondering how to translate it ?

                Thanks.

                    "Pre-defined Generic Avatars" and "Categories" are a size too big. You should reduce the font size to be just like "Custom Avatars".

                      There are three options missing that we really need :
                      - Registration Date Format Override
                      - Birthdays with Year Specified Format Override
                      - Birthdays with Year Unspecified Format Override

                              (trivial) You could add parenthesis to options, to be harmonized with values :
                              <td class="alt1">&#91;url=<i>(option)</i>]<i>(value)</i>&#91;/url]</td>
                              <td class="alt1">&#91;list=<i>(option)</i>]<i>(value)</i>&#91;/list]</td>

                              (trivial) You could inform about three other kinds of numbered lists :
                              The option should have a value of 1 (for a numbered list) or A (for an alphabetic with capital letters list) or a (for an alphabetic with small letters list) or I (for a numbered with capital romans list) or i (for a numbered with small romans list).
