All I want is to test the multi language capabilities and processes.

Hi All,

I am evaluating OCPortal vs the classics, Joomla, Drupal, Wordpress in order to build a multi language website.
Unfortunately I am stuck. I do not seem to be able to access the option that sets the Multi_Language capability.
I take it can be accessed from the ocPortal Installation Options editor.

I have used an auto installer from my hosting provider to install OCPortal and that installer asked for an administrative password. I am now trying to use that administrative password to access the ocPortal Installation Options editor without success.

Any idea what is preventing me to go forward?

PS: all I want is to test the multi language capabilities and processes.

Thanks
Mimmo

Hello Mimmo,

The auto-installer should have prompted you to enter an admin user account password and a separate master admin password. The master (non-user) password is what you will need to get into the Installation Options area. If the auto-installer didn't ask for one or you forgot what it was, you can open the info.php file in the root of your web site and look for the $SITE_INFO['admin_password']='seeminglyrandomestringhere'; line. On that line after the equal sign, copy the whole string of text between that last set of single quotes (as highlighted above) and paste that in for the master password on the Installation Options page and it should let you in. You can then re-set the master password from there by setting a new admin_password and confirming it on the Installation Options page. This password may be a bit misleading as it is only used as the master password to access certain areas of the web site such as the Installation Options, Code Editor (Under the Tools menu), and ocPortal Upgrader (also under the Tools menu) and is not in any way tied to the admin user account that was set up for the web site administrator.

Sorry, I originally gave old instructions. What you should do is manually change the text between the quotes to a new password in the info.php file. Then you can use that password to log in to the Installation Options Editor. Just be sure that you re-enter that new password in the admin_password and Confirm password fields in the Installation Options Editor to re-set it again so that it properly gets hashed in the info.php file...for security, you don't really want to leave a clear text password in the info.php file.

Thanks a lot Jason, I am now able to access the console.

So what I understood now is that in order to add a new language I simply need to create a new subfolder in the languages folder of my installation.

I'll continue my discovery, but the multilanguage setup does not seem to be very well documented.

Thanks
Mimmo

See under "Downloading translations from Launchpad" in the internationalisation tutorial.

If you're not using Launchpad, you can start a new language from Admin Zone > Style > Translate/re-phrase the software. I think ocPortal will start providing the language as an option once you've translated at least one language string.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
