Re: Translation Manager BUG!!!??? Data Unknown

Postby genous » Fri Dec 14, 2007 8:34 am

on controller.php file, fine the code

Code: Select all

// initialise the $editData array (with all the necessary entries)
      // any extra entries in the XML file will be retained but are not editable
      $editData = array(
         'tag' => '',
         'name' => '',
         'description' => '',
         'version' => '1.5.0',
         'creationdate' => date('Y-m-d'),
         'author' => '',
         'authorurl' => '',
         'authoremail' => '',
         'copyright' => '',
         'license' => 'http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html GNU/GPL',
         'metadata' => array(
         'name' => '',
         'tag' => '',
         'rtl' => 0,
         'locale' => '',
         'wincodepage' => 'iso-8859-1',
         'backwardlang' => '',
         'pdffontname' => 'vera'
         ),
         'params' => '',
      );


change to

Code: Select all

// initialise the $editData array (with all the necessary entries)
      // any extra entries in the XML file will be retained but are not editable
      $editData = array(
         'tag' => '',

A simple patch to tmpl/files.php

Postby joecai » Sun Dec 23, 2007 12:46 pm

On the language files page, table headers won't display correctly in Joomla! 1.5.0RC4. I'm not sure if this is caused by the change of JHTML::_(). The patch is attached. Just in case you guys didn't notice that.

This extension is awesome. Thanks for the great work, Evans:)

Hi

Many thanks to you all for the translation files, bug fixes and reports.  I will be including these (hopefully Catalan and Spanish also) in the component over the next week, and posting a new version for Joomla RC4 at the end of next week.

Hope you all enjoy the holidays, and best wishes to everyone for 2008.

Hi,

I can't see that we have sent you our Swedish translation before in this thread.

Here is the Swedish translation teams file that we made last summer. Are there some new string in the next version?

:)

Update release just posted on Joomla Code:
http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/joomla_1_5_tr1/frs/

# Changes to default language handling (core changes to store configuration in database)

# Changes to XML file parsing and format (mixed and lower case parameter names - consistent usage across Joomla! would be helpful here, but the component will now find parameter names in any case, and will save to XML in mixed case)

# Various other small fixes following J! core modifications (mostly JHTML, package file path, tooltips)

+ Improvements to Text Search (shows how many matches in each file)

+ New Component Translations: Danish, Norwegian, Swedish


As usual, please report any bugs to me, and a big thank you to everyone for bug reports, patches and component translations.

Best wishes for 2008

Hi,

here's an updated german language file for RC4.
Fixed some typos and added the new phrases.

Have fun, and thanks again for this great component!

CirTap

edit: ok, the attachment doesn't show up :( Do they need approvement nowadays?
I'll attach it as a tracker item @ joomlacode.

...edit 2, hmpf: no tracker? then get it from here:

Hi CirTap,

I have posted a message about this issue to the moderators, they have now made some adjustments. I'll try to attach your file in my post.

Minor upgrade/change to allow "xxx-XX" format for language codes.

Some languages do not have a two-letter ISO-369-1 code, so the official Joomla! recommendation has been revised to allow use of the ISO-369-2 code only when there is no two letter code. See this page for the codes: http://www.loc.gov/standards/iso639-2/php/code_list.php

Thanks to infograf768 for raising this.

Hello

I'm translating Joomla! 1.5 (started at 1.5.3 and now continued with 1.5.4) into Albanian and I'm having problems with the translation component. About 98 percent of the files are ready and all entries are marked as 100% finished, closed. Some of them, such as site core (is the only one from the site), and administrator core / com_categories / com_module / com_content, even though being finished, they break the site when i click to save or close them. I have to go back until I go at the list of the files, because if I go back to, say, com_content, whatever I click the site breaks. Or I have to log in anew to be able to resume working. The site is not live, I'm using it just for the translation.

I'm a noob in php so can't understand a thing about the code, or attempt to diagnose this. I understood that a possible workaround would be to edit the remaining files in a text editor and then upload to the site, but will this resolve things once for all? I mean, being that I don't know code, am I doing anything wrong?

Best regards

Hello

Nothing specific, only the server error pages, which I'm attaching. If somebody is willing to help I will give username/password to see for him(her)self. I really don't know where to look, and the only option left to me is to translate with a text editor and upload afterwards, but I'm worried about preparing the package for other potential users.

Thanks

Seems like a mod_security problem, witch your host could help you with. Just give them the time and date for when it happens etc., and they should be able to track down what's triggering this - and then be able to adjust their mod_security settings. You can maybe also temporary turn it of with help of an .htaccess-file, don't remember the exact line for it - but Google "disable mod_security .htaccess" and you should find it.

Today I was preparing packages for Joomla! 1.5.5 and I realised that it would be very nice feature if it would be possible to prepare translation packages out of box with name that is ready for submission in joomlacode translation project.

So my proposal is to add one more field in package file name:
now it is [tag]-[client].zip
to make [tag]-Joomla-[version]_[client].zip

Anyway version is used to prepare xml file.
What others think about it?
Maybe it is not very hard to implement in next versions!

Try adding

SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off

on .htaccess file, to disable mod_security. This works for me ;)

I'm a little confused on how to use this, just a few questions:

- How do you continue editing or change a language file after already starting on it. Once I start on translating one, it won't let me re-edit it. The checkbox is gone and it just gives a percentage of how much is done

- When I mark a language file as finished being translated, same thing as above, no checkbox and no way to publish it. How do I publish the files and make them available in the system?

I'm using the latest version of Translation Manager.

When using the Translation Manager one has to make sure the language folders concerned are writable.
Please check the permissions, including those of the new file.

This was your answer to this question by someone: "How do I publish the files and make them available in the system?" But the question is still not answered.

I have the same question and, yes, all of my language folders concerned are writable. You all generally do a great job and provide an important service to us all, but we code-illiterates are often still left in the dark. Such is the case for us with the Translations Manager extension. I read all of the wonderful reviews for it but I can't find documentation for it anywhere. I installed it but once again, how does one publish the files? We need step-by-step instructions. Or is this extension meant to be used by Joomla experts only?

Can't be simpler : when one saves the file, it IS published.
No need to be php litterate.

If I got correct, there is one field with file status to the right from file name, is it published or not. You can change status by clicking on this field.

Abouth the last paragraf. I think that translator must have some basic knowledge of Joomla, so step by step instruction is not so needed and it can wait until translation component will include more functions. For now it is just wasting time for somebody.

Hi,

I wan to thank you for the great component. Just want to report that when I used the component, it did not provide the check box after the *.ini files were created. I had to manually edit the url with corresponding mod/com/plg to edit the ini file.

When the check boxes are not there, how do you publish an *.ini file from other components/plugins not related to joomla core language files?

Thank you for the nice components.
