Customizing Labels Failed

  • I followed the instructions at ttp:// to customize my bp labels, however I did not have a /plugins/bp-custom.php file, so I created one in my wp-content/plugins directory and added:

    define( ‘BPLANG’, ‘mav’ );
    if ( file_exists( WP_PLUGIN_DIR . ‘/buddypress-‘ . BPLANG . ‘.mo’ ) ) {
    load_textdomain( ‘buddypress’, WP_PLUGIN_DIR . ‘/buddypress-‘ . BPLANG . ‘.mo’ );

    This resulted in no change in my site labels, so I looked at my file:
    > cat
    ??$,8R9Project-Id-Version: BuddyPress
    POT-Creation-Date: 2010-06-27 13:13+0000

    That’s all there is. I was expecting to see more even if it wasn’t readable.

    What could I have missed?

  • just ran msgfmt again but in verbose mode:
    > msgfmt -v -o buddypress-mav.po

    I found my stupid mistake. I changed the msgid string instead of the msgstr string. doh!
