no, it wasn’t turned into von. It looks like this: http://screencast.com/t/FLR74UlGQaYp
Are you planning to have a multilingual single site? You might be on to something here if you are trying to run a multilingual single site.
Yes, that was the idea, but I keep running into so many issues with this that I’m now starting to consider separate installations.
One of the issues is that a multilingual single site requires a translation for forum posts for them to show up at all. I would like users to be able to access my website in their language (menus, buttons etc) and write forum posts in their language without the need of a translation.
However, if I post something in English it will not show unless I translate the post into German and vice versa. You can imagine that it would not be feasible to translate every forum post. If I deactivate the translation of replies, then part of the interface won’t be translated either.
I’m not sure though if I can create one community if I separate the installs for the languages. E.g. I would still like users to be able to contact each other via private and public messages and post in the German and/or the English forum. Member lists should show members of both sites etc.
I’ve not looked into this yet so I don’t know if this can be done.
Just so you know, I thought the root issue could be the “by” not changing in your forums is because it might have outputted the text using code from a custom phpbb starter pack theme created by @lynq, here is an example of the custom forum freshness column from the starter pack.
I see what you mean. I think I’ll check with the author of my theme (Buddy) and see what he says. Thanks for the tip!
thank you for your reply. I appreciate your help. 🙂
I’ve added a new site to my multisite installation, set the language to German and activated bbPress. The ‘by’ did not show. I then activated my theme. The ‘by’ still did not show.
Could it be that the theme only causes the ‘by’ to show if two (or more) languages are active or that a plugin is causing it? I activated some of the plugins I’m using on my site related to bbPress and BuddyPress, but I couldn’t recreate the issue.
thank you so much for your reply!
The forum is not accessible via the menu yet, but you should be able to see it if you follow this link: http://tangleblogs.com/de/forums/
Thank you. 🙂
