Language changed without any action

  • Dear community,

    today my bbpress just changed its language to english and it seems like it doesn’t care about the german language file. I haven’t changed the configuration file or something else on the server. Renaming the language file didn’t show any results. Yesterday bbPress didn’t accept my template-folder, so that I had to change its name and then it worked.

    You can see, there are many strange things happening on my installation. I talked to my server host and he said everything is alright.

    I’m using bbPress 1.0 alpha, but even the stable version, which I installed on the same database, shows the same problem.

    Does anybody have an idea? Is there any database entry which contents the language settings?

    Thanks,

    jetson

  • Dear individual,

    that is strange. What did you change the name of that made it work? my-templates to what, or was it the name of the forum?

    There is no such DB entry as far as I know.

    There was absolutely no change just before bb switched to english?

    Hehe, hi fel64. ;-) Thanks for your reply!

    I just put an underscore at the end of the folder name and it worked.

    Yes, there wasn’t any change before concerning my language problem. I tried to switch to the spanish language file but it doesn’t get recognized by bbpress, too. No change.

    There is none. You make this setting in config.php.

    Hi,

    I found a solution for this problem. It’s a known bug from wordpress because of 64bit systems. Here’s the fix:

    Open “bb-includes/gettext.php” and change the following code passage to:

    // $MAGIC1 = (int)0x950412de; //bug in PHP 5
    $MAGIC1 = (int) - 1794895138;
    // $MAGIC2 = (int)0xde120495; //bug
    $MAGIC2 = (int) - 569244523;

    $this->STREAM = $Reader;
    $magic = $this->readint();
    if ($magic == ($MAGIC1 & 0xffffffff)) {
    $this->BYTEORDER = 0;
    } elseif ($magic == $MAGIC2) {
    $this->BYTEORDER = 1;
    } else {
    $this->error = 1; // not MO file
    return false;
    }

    Source: http://forum.wordpress-deutschland.org/sprachdatei/24-wordpress-deutscher-sprache-5.html (German)

    Then it should work!

    Greets,

    It’s OK to start a new topic for a new problem.

    To change the language, you need to make a change to the bb-config.php file, and you need to install the language files. There is an Arabic language file shared here:

    https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/check-out-this-very-nice-r-t-l-arabic-bbpress

    To install a language file, the instructions are right in that area of bb-config.php:

    // Change this to localize bbPress.  A corresponding MO file for the
    // chosen language must be installed to bb-includes/languages.
    // For example, install de.mo to bb-includes/languages and set BB_LANG to 'de'
    // to enable German language support.
    define('BB_LANG', '');

     

    You put the file (downloaded from Google Code) into the `bb-includes/languages/ directory. Then enter the name of the file here in between the single quotes for the BB_LANG constant. For Arabic, I think the file is ar_AR.mo, so your config line would be:

    define('BB_LANG', 'ar_AR.mo');

    There are more files available at that code.google.com site for an Arabic bbPress. It’s actually very nice that someone shared all their work. Looks like there is a localized version of bbPress there as well, possibly with more items translated that were not translatable with a language file.
