Any chance of this becoming standard (or “checkbox configurable” or similar)?
I really don’t want to fiddle with custom PHP if it can be avoided because I can no longer say “look, it’s all out of the box” … and it hides functionality for the next guy that admins the site.
WP itself disables stuff that has with structure/building the site to do, for roles like author and editors whom should only be concerned about content. WPSP should, as well.
Sorry for being slow in responding – I tried to post a reply yesterday but got an error msg from your database.
Anyway – thanks, unfortunately, it did not work. I’ve just had time for a quick test, over the weekend I might have more time to dig into this and maybe contact the WPML support, too. I can’t say I understand exactly how things are supposed to look even when they’re working, so to speak. All I can see it that the custom field of that custom post type does not get picked up by the WPML translation editor, and when I “force it” to, it ignores it somehow.
Maybe this has something to do with it: https://wpml.org/faq/how-to-translate-custom-types/ i.e. you have to “do the right thing” in the plugin somehow.
So I’ll have to get back to you with more information and/or questions in a few days (or more). If you come up with something please let me know :).
Thanks for the quick response.
Sorry for multiple posts – I was unable to edit my previous post. The above link takes you directly to the relevant section.
Hi again Tom – I know you know WPML, we’re using GP as our theme and that works like a charm with 4 languages so far.
Still, maybe this is a hint?
The base language of the site is Swedish so the WP Show Posts list in question has “Läs mer…” as the entry in the “Read more text” box under “Content”. WPML did not pick this entry up at all, i.e. it was not translatable which makes me think it’s actually a problem with the plugin. What I did was use the WPML function “Make ‘Post Lists’ translatable” and checked the wpsp_read_more_text field name as “translatable”. So as you can see above, I get to fill that entry in the translation editor. Somehow it does not work when the page is rendered though. I’m a bit at a loss – it could be a WPSP problem (my guess because I should not need to use the WPML “hack” to accomplish this) but the problem might well be in WPML (or even somewhere between my keyboard and my chair lol). It’s a custom field after all and the best would have been if WPML could have picked it up somehow. It’s not that WPSP if full of stuff that needs translation – this is the only place, right?
Do you have any advice?
