wet_babble: Override i18n language strings

PLEASE NOTE: This plugin is deprecated. It will not work in Textpattern 4.7+. Build your own textpacks instead, they are much crispier.

wet_babble is a Textpattern plugin which overrides a choice from the built-in text strings of your liking with alternate texts. Updating the core texts from the Textpattern language server won’t wipe out your custom texts any longer.

Re: wet_babble: Override i18n language strings

I’m sure this plugin is really useful somehow. Sorry for the noob question, but what is an example of a “built-in text string” that someone might want to edit with this plugin?

Destry had a use for it, so it came into existence.

Re: wet_babble: Override i18n language strings

I’m working on a site with a custom language file that requires tedious manual updates when I upgrade Textpattern, and wet_babble would be a much more manageable way to do this.

Unfortunately, I can’t get it to work.

Here is a sample of language arrays I added to the plugin:

'article_posted' 	=> 'Record posted.',
'article_saved' 	=> 'Record saved.',

…but when I glance around the Textpattern UI, nothing seems to have changed.

Any pointers?

Re: wet_babble: Override i18n language strings

oh, this is a good one! for the longest time I was really bothered that every time I updated there was a couple of very oddly translated strings in the spanish lang file

Are you signalling that you aspire to be volunteered as a translator?

I extended the plugin to interfere with both the public and the admin side texts. wet_babble 0.2 should meet your requirements now.

Re: wet_babble: Override i18n language strings

On TXP Resources I described a very easy way to find the exact strings you need to enter in wet’s plugin (for admin side strings).


In bad weather I never leave home without wet_plugout, smd_where_used and adi_form_links

Re: wet_babble: Override i18n language strings

Just found a problem by using this plugin. – but its not the plugins fault :)

I wanted to change the last user level name ‘none’ o ‘Member’:

1825 en-gb none public None 26/07/09 19:47

So I used:

‘none’ => ‘Member’,

but this also changes the button next to “select all” at the bottom of the image tab.

So I suppose the fix would be to create 2 language entries

@Robert

Thanks lot for your Textpack feature idea in TXP and this very efficient and clever wet_babble plugin!
Your little plugin solves an Url problem for a recent project and improves SEO with the use of categories: changing the generic “category” statement with a better relevant text while retaining the categories filter.

Just amazing :)

Best regards,
