Translation of BP 1.2.8: buddypress.pot file refering to files that dont exist

  • johjoergensen


    I am in the process of translating the Buddypress.pot file to Danish using poedit.
    I have noticed that some of the translations do not affect my Buddypress installation, and after scrutinizing the the generated po file, I realised that some of the references are erroneous. This is true in particular for some of the activity headers in the activity stream

    For instance:
    #: bp-friends/bp-friends-functions.php:94
    #: bp-friends/bp-friends-functions.php:103
    msgid “%1$s and %2$s are now friends”
    msgstr “%1$s og %2$s er nu venner”


    #: bp-groups/bp-groups-functions.php:475
    msgid “%1$s posted an update in the group %2$s:”
    msgstr “%1$s postede en update i gruppen %2$s:”

    In my version of Buddypress (1.2.8), I have no file called bp-friends/bp-friends-functions.php and no bp-groups/bp-groups-functions.php

    I guess that the latest version of buddypress.pot is not up to date with the latest version of Buddypress?

    Is there anyone out there who can inform me of where I can find the code previously located in bp-friends/bp-friends-functions.php and bp-groups/bp-groups-functions.php ?

    Looks like it’s using strings from the currently-in-development BP 1.3 :(

    Ping @boonebgorges.



    you can download some version of translation on the buddypress i18n trac:
    or on the buddypress trac:
    there are only 3 strings diffs between 1.2.7 and 1.2.8 pot, so it’s not very important at this time if you miss something

    If you want to work with pot files, you have to pick in the tagged version, not in the trunk (except for your private tests of course)



    @Chouf1 thx, but I am not sure I understand. It seems like the po file I am using is using strings from another version of BP – although I picked the most recent offered on the BP website supposed to work with 1.2.8. I tried to use the po file for Danish at i18n trac, but it seems it has the same issues.
