Translation not working?

  • Xevo



    I just finished making a new Dutch translation, but I uploaded it and defined the language in my wp-config to nl_NL and it didn’t work.

    I’m not sure what’s going on since I translated correctly (after lots of mistakes), anybody any ideas?

    Check your messages, I figured it out.. but it wasn’t easy… I think we should write a new tutorial of how to translate for BP because information about this is quite hard to find and not well documented.. I’ll try to write a quick tutorial for this soon :)



    In continuation of this, I ran into a fatal error on the buddypress settings page in the admin area.

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function bp_core_get_buddypress_themes() in /customers/ on line 105

    Edit: Nevermind, using “define ( ‘BP_IGNORE_DEPRECATED’, true );” in your wp-config isn’t allowed apparently..



    Got it working, hacked bp-core.php and made it a static link (to the .mo file).

    Looking forward to help on the language’s. I’ve got buddypress translated to dutch and that works fine. After that I activated bbpress but cannot figure out where the language files for bbpress go ?

    bb-config says: * bbPress Localized Language, defaults to English.


    * Change this to localize bbPress. A corresponding MO file for the chosen

    * language must be installed to a directory called “my-languages” in the root

    * directory of bbPress. For example, install to “my-languages” and set

    * BB_LANG to ‘de’ to enable German language support.


    define( ‘BB_LANG’, ‘nl_NL’ );

    Where is the root directory of bbPress when one installed it with the one-click install from within buddypress ? e.g. where does the .mo file go ?
