Polish version of the ocportal.com

Hi Everyone,

As I declared in my posts here and here and as I have been given the permission and full support from Chris Graham I have started preparation to set up a Polish version of the ocPortal. I hope that opening a new topic here will help to spread the idea of "nationalization" (temporary name for the project of publishing the ocPortal.com content in other than English languages) among members and visitors to our community.

The first  good news is that yesterday I was notified officially that the domain ocportal.pl is at my disposal for at least one year (I bet for more). For obvious reasons the site will however remain closed for some time. There is still a lot of work ahead of me. One thing however is urgent. As you know I 'm translating now the OCP into Polish. This is an enormous task for one person, sort of a full time job for a long time to prepare every file in native language. To accelerate the whole process I've got the idea to translate in first move all files which are responsible for the front end of the OCP (and leave the translation of admin end for later work). It would allow me to produce a Polish version of the ocPortal in shorter time.

So I need a help/advice from all of you Guys here who have been tackling already with translating. Is this idea reasonable at all and if yes does anybody list me please the files with the highest priority for being translated? In other words is it possible to define which templates on launchpad should be done in first turn?

Thanks in advance for your feed back. :)

Best regards.

I will be presumptuous and assume you haven't read the tutorial about translating ocPortal. If you haven't, can I suggest you take a look at ocPortal Tutorial: Localisation and internationalisation.

If you have already read the tute, please accept my apologies and disregard this post.

Thank you Fletch.

Of course I have been reading this as well as many other parts of OCP documentation. Maybe it too much for the start for a newcomer, moreover when at the same time, I have to try to translate on Launchpad so many language files into Polish by myself. So please understand that I desperately look for any kind of "short cuts" like some other people here did the same in the past (for example please look here).

In other words I'm just at least asking anybody for sharing his/her experience and providing me with any ideas which part of this enormous list of language files should be translated first to be able as quickly as possible publish some content in native language. In Joomla world (where I actually come from) such division between front and back end language files is pretty obvious, so maybe I am wrong and naive to instinctively look for similar solution here.
 
I really will be grateful for any suggestions in this matter. Thanks.

I have no experience whatsoever translating the files, but I followed a thread for a long time, about how people were coming together on Launchpad (I think it is Launchpad) to get the work done in record time. Whether this applies to Polish is another matter, but I'm sure there must be many Polish users who will start to get involved in your efforts.

I tried to get my wife involved a long time ago in an attempt to translate into Portuguese (2 for the price of one - you get Brazilian at the same time!), and all I can remember is that when she was working through the built-in tool in ocPortal, that she needed to concentrate on the 'language' (INI) files first.

Perhaps that is a good place to start?

Just doing frontend stuff first on launchpad makes sense. ocPortal doesn't split frontend and backend strings (as there's no real frontend/backend distinction in ocPortal - it's all permission based) but you can pretty much intuit your way through it.
Contacting people who have posted here about polish or been active on launchpad before would also be a good idea. I'm sure there will be some who just gave up due to the efforts involved.

Hi Guys,

I need your feedback concerning "Leave your feedback" functionality in the OCP. As I am testing and practicing the system I've noticed that after posting a feedback from the front-end I do quite normally receive an info that "en e-mail has been dispatched to the site stuff". The problem is that this mail is not being sent at all. The php mail module works on my server correctly (for example personal e-mails are sent normally), so I guess that there is a problem with a wrong configuration. Could you tell me what should I check out?

The other, rather minor thing, is the question to Chris about WYSIWYG editing which is not currently supported on Opera web browser. As I like Opera very much I would like to ask you Chris would it be possible to extend this functionality in future version of OCP? (I know Guys that there is an excellent Firefox but please believe me Opera is also cool… ;) )

Cheers.

Hi Guys,

I need your help, as learning our great OCP system I stumble from time to time  :(  This time I have a problem with a disappearing of the "logout" link. I presume it sounds weird but after another fresh install of the OCP (version 5.0.3) I noticed that there is a lack of proper logout link/button after making the login operation into the system. There is nothing like that in the side panel in the box containing this set of the following links
[ Personal Zone ]
[ My Profile ]
[ My Points ]
[ Admin Zone ]
as well as there is nothing like that in the footer. In my previous installation (5.0.1 with later upgrades to 5.0.3) I had no such problems. Any help how to tackle this issue more than welcomed. Thank you very much in advance for your knowledge and patience  :)

Best regards.

Hmmmmmm….

missing cookie?

The JS goes something like this …

Code

// <![CDATA[
2 var cookie_value=ReadCookie('tray_XXXXX');
3
4 if (cookie_value=='closed') hideTag(document.getElementById('XXXXX'),true);
5
6
7 //]]>
(where XXXXX is the username)

But that's a wild guess on my part. I don't know this for sure!

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Just wondering if you installed our OpenID addon? This could cause it.

Thank you Guys for trying to rescue me, but I installed the fresh OCP just out of the box and this "Logout" link was missing from the very beginning. I did not install anything additional and I can't find among my addons that one mentioned by Chris. It is really strange situation. :(

Cheers

Right, I'm pretty sure you will have an HTTP authentication there that happens to match the same username ('admin') as ocPortal has. ocPortal thinks that automatically caused your login and won't provide the logout link as a result. I'll make it a bit smarter in the next release.
For now you can still test as other users using the SU feature in the footer (e.g. type in "Guest" there).

Yes Chris, you are absolutely right.  :thumbs:

When I read your post I … almost immediately realized that I completely forgot (:$) about the fact that the whole directory where the OCP had been installed was secured by the .htaccess file with the request to provide the username and the password. As you correctly guessed the username was the same like in the OCP - "admin". When you asked me in one of the previous post (#64414) if "Is it possible you enabled HTTP authentication?" I thought you meant the OCP configuration ( Setup  > Configuration  > Member and forum options > HTTP-Auth is enabled). Sorry for that.

Frankly speaking I don't understand why this server-side mechanism influenced the OCP but it really did. When I removed this directive from .htaccess (exchanged for another one), everything has returned to normality. I am able now to normally logout from the system. Huraaah :)

Chris thank you very much for your support. I'm really grateful!

It would be great if you have some time to look for a solution for such an exceptional, "unhealthful" coincidence :thumbs:

Thanks again

I did, but I didn't realise the code would find a match even when it's off. We weakened our check at some point to cover different scenarios.
