Translation Problem: I need a meta tag to add.

edited April 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I am working on a Turkish translation. I know I have to replace the language specific characters with hex values. I will also need a meta tag in each page for proper display of the special charset. Smt. like: <meta http-equiv=content-type content="text/html;charset=iso-8859-9"> There is a related discussion below, but I need help where to put the code/extension.

    i think you just need to go into appg/settings.php and change $Configuration['CHARSET'] to 'iso-8859-9'

    great! will check it right now thanks. any quick suggestions about the place/files to edit the basic html (not CSS!) layout that vanilla uses (for header/footer for instance)?

    btw i'm using ver and i don't see such variable in settings.php ?
  • Options
    Can't you change that setting from the language file itself?

    this line is from headers.php file. i hope this works. you all guys have version 1.0? header ("content-type:text/html;charset=utf-8");
  • Options
    yeah, 1.0 :)
    glad you found the right place.

    bergamot: you should be able to, but the language files (conf/language.php and languages/Whatever/definitions.php) contain only dictionary definitions.

    maybe one could set $Configuration['CHARSET'] in one of those? they are loaded after appg/settings.php, but i don't know what other files have had a chance to use the CHARSET in appg/settings.php before those two are loaded.

    do my existing translation files work in (or may be adapted to) the 1.0 version? why that version not presented publicly? it's confusing all the support here is for 1.0 and you can only download the old one (if i am not missing any links to 1.0)! are you guys beta testers or partners?

    anyone can get 0.9.3 (which is now 1.0) via SVN. directions are in the first sticky thread.

    1.0 is very close to release - should be within a few days. (i don't know for sure, nor does anyone else :) )

    we're not really beta testers, as it's open to the public :)

    it does get confusing sometimes, but hopefully that will be over soon.
