Bug with comments language even tho translations exists.

Post by Molle » 10 Apr 2013, 11:33


I'm trying to set up a wordpress mu site, using suffusion and creating my own child theme. I noticed something wierd that I can't seem to solve. I used the childtheme setup to incorporate the Swedish translation.

My site do not translate 6 different elements in comments.php even though they are in the sv_SE.po file. The 4 titles in the comment form:

"Name", "E-mail", "URI" and "Your Comment" does not get translated correctly. Neither does the 2x (required) and "You may use these HTML tags and attributes: <a href="" title=""> <abbr title=""> <acronym title=""> <b> <blockquote cite=""> <cite> <code> <del datetime=""> <em> <i> <q cite=""> <strike> <strong> "

Here is what I found in the sv_SE.po file, everything seems to be in order according to my small amount of knowledge.

#: functions/framework.php:96
msgid "Name"
msgstr "Namn"

#: functions/framework.php:98
msgid "E-mail"
msgstr "E-post"

#: functions/framework.php:99
msgid "URI"
msgstr "URL"

#: functions/framework.php:100
msgid "Your Comment"
msgstr "Din kommentar"

#: functions/framework.php:97
msgid "(required)"
msgstr "(obligatorisk)"

#: comments.php:110
msgid "You may use these <abbr title=\"HyperText Markup Language\">HTML</abbr> tags and attributes: %s"
msgstr ""

The last translation is fine by me, if it worked :)

Can anyone help me to solve this or is this a bug?

Yes... a ladybug... As much different users can need much more than a translation, they wish to use their own words/phrases for those labels. At Suffusion Options -> Backend -> Comment Settings -> Comment Form Labels use your own ideas for those words...
