while translating.

Hello, 
I am looking at OcPortal and trying to work a translation, and its going, but when I set the Arabic as the main language, it displays fine and looks oki, 

but if you logout you are not able to re-login, like the data converted, 

I did try to copy the name and password from a textfile and paste in the field but still no fix.

any ideas?

Any unusual characters in the passwords, or just latin letters and numbers?

Definitely not putting the password and username in the wrong fields?

Are you sure your pasting it in exactly? It is very easily to accidentally paste in a space or something, especially if the text file is not in a plain text editor (e.g. notepad).

Here are the steps I made:

1. install OCP
2. copy and rename the EN folder to AR on  the following DIR (lang, lang_cached, lang_custom)
3. edit  lang/AR/global.ini 

charset=ISO-8859-1
dir=rtl
locale=ar-LY
dictionary=ar_LY
LOCALE_SUBST=
en_left=right
en_right=left

5. save the file.
6. go to lang_custom/AR and past some translation I made with OCP , i will attach them.
7. refreshed the site, the translation appears :)
8. logout
9. try login again , you can't :(

I did go in the site/config_editor.php to set the default folder as AR not EN.

,, 

but if I return the default folder to EN in the site/config_editor.php the site operates fine!

-- my Ideas, 

the password field gets effected by the following arguments, in the global.ini

charset=utf-8
dir=rtl
locale=ar-LY
dictionary=ar_LY
LOCALE_SUBST=
en_left=right
en_right=left

thanks again, sorry for the multiple replies, I cant sleep with such a bug in place :(

Hi,

I tested and found big problems with character set encoding, and a big slow-down bug.

Please try this hotfix:
0000646: Problems with non-latin language packs - ocPortal feature tracker

It is not directly related to login (I had no login problems myself), but I am suspecting that the encoding problems caused a lot of things to malfunction as a result.

You'll find some alignment problems when using right-to-left layout.

In particular, chevron images might face the wrong way, or margins might have gaps in the wrong place.

We have in the past tried to make sure the default theme works well, but it's not perfect. If you fix up the problems we'd consider taking the changes as a patch.

That said, if you're going to do that, you should do it on v9-alpha, as we've changed so much of the default theme now.

Hello Chris

on the installation of 9alpha i get this message on the first page:
site/install.php
[
An ocPortal file, .gitattributes is missing – it needs to be uploaded.
]

the design of the installation is very nice, and smooth, although I would like to see a different colour scheme:offtopic:. installation going without a problem.

- I personally didn't notice the slow speed since am running the site on a localhost and have turned all the caching off.

am testing and working with version 9a

- there seem to be a strange bug, am on the homepage and logged in, when i click social session disappears and am asked to login again!! >> only when I click remember my login, that issue disappears <<
(maybe this is the reason <Your login as “admin” must be confirmed before you may enter this high-security area (you do not currently have a confirmed session).>

- accessing the home page of the site for the first time a message shows up just above the footer, 

A parameter, SUBMIT_URL, is referenced in the template, BLOCK_NO_ENTRIES, but not passed


- the middle (body) of site/index.php?page=start
takes the entier full space - in chrome, and only takes half the space in safari.

the new theme looks very intresting. great work

now to converting things to utf-8.
< Why is the site, not running on UTF-8 from the start? > only dedicated to ISO-8859-1>

- again a strange box appears sometimes in the admin screen just below Micellaneous links asking to login again, and when you do so, website's home page appears in the small box.



The problem with the login still shows on even on version 9a, and the patch you sent doesn't work with 9a.

while it worked with 8.1.1 it still didn't fix the login issue and having.

----------------------------
I will start working with 9Alpha, but try simply changing the following variables in lang/EN/global.php

charset=utf-8
dir=rtl
locale=ar-LY
dictionary=ar_LY
LOCALE_SUBST=
en_left=right
en_right=left

and then logout of the system and log back in and see if its possible cause it didn't work for me.

Am currently playing with the default OCP 9alpha and wanted to create a new theme, using the [add empty theme] works fine, 

when you try to set a zone to that theme you get the following


try choosing a logo for the theme and adding it, and when you click save

you are redirected to the following page.



in this page the header disappears completely :(

HELLO AGAIN, 

I only appear at night, as I work most of my time,

I have been trying to edit the template of the new theme and there seem to be no templates even if you click on the default theme's Edit templates you see nothing

 

I tried searching for a global and the search doesn't seem to be responding.

Hi,

There were quite a few bugs in alpha1, thanks for reporting some of them. These are already fixed in our github repository, but v9 is not officially in a release cycle yet - this was quite an early preview. I mentioned it because it is disruptive enough for people to want to get ready for it in advance :).

there seem to be a strange bug, am on the homepage and logged in, when i click social session disappears and am asked to login again!! >> only when I click remember my login, that issue disappears

This is probably due to session cookie conflict:
0000271: Configurable session cookie name - ocPortal feature tracker

Try deleting your cookies and closing any other ocPortal tabs, then going back.

the new theme looks very intresting. great work

It has been improved further since alpha1 :).

now to converting things to utf-8.
< Why is the site, not running on UTF-8 from the start? > only dedicated to ISO-8859-1>

PHP doesn't actually support utf-8. There are some extensions to it that do (mbstring, iconv), but those aren't installed by default. So ocPortal has to detect what extensions are available, and also do some extra tricks, for it to work. Other PHP software has to do similar things, but I think because often other developers aren't in English countries it was probably a higher priority to them. We were intending to wait until PHP6 was released because that was adding utf-8 support but PHP6 was cancelled a while ago unfortunately. I think our utf-8 support is pretty stable now, but we would/will need to plan the transition carefully.

its been few days with no answer, just checking if there is any work been done for the issues or I should try my luck in few weeks if a newer version shows up?

Depending on how much time you have, you might want to try downloading the alpha repository (alpha=v9, master=v8) from github and installing that.

Otherwise you should probably continue on v8 but just be aware that you shouldn't do too much themeing work if you intend to later upgrade to v9.

Double checked, this worked.
