iso.txt - no links allowed

Post by scootergrisen » Sat Mar 31, 2018 10:51 pm

Its unclear to me if its allowed to write domainnames on the third line in the iso.txt file.

I read on https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb-translat ... eisoisotxt it says:
Author(-group) information (Plaintext only, no links allowed)
Then i check the language packs and it seems lots of them use a domain name on the third line in the iso.txt file.

I guess any text is not a link until you make it a link like:

Code: Select all

www.notalink.phpbb.com

Code: Select all

<a href="http://www.alink.phpbb.com/">www.alink.phpbb.com</a>
But maybe make it more clear what is allowed/not allowed.

Like:
Author(-group) information (Plaintext only)
Author(-group) information (No HTML markup allowed)
Author(-group) information (Plaintext only, no URL/domain name)

Or something like that.

Here are a few examples from the languages packs iso.txt files:

Code: Select all

Vietnamese
Tiếng Việt
zelonght (www.ytuongsangtaovn.com)

Code: Select all

Macedonian
македонски јазик
read-here.com

Code: Select all

Gaelic
Gàidhlig
GunChleoc http://www.foramnagaidhlig.net is akerbeltz http://www.akerbeltz.org

Code: Select all

Polish
Polski
phpBB.pl
Also where is the text on the third line used in phpBB?

It's a plain text file, and plain text doesn't know about links.
I guess you can write web addresses, but they are not converted into links.

It says "no links allowed".
So how would you write a link?

yourdomain.com is not a link.

http://yourdomain.com is a link
<a href="http://yourdomain.com"> your link </a> is a html link
[url=http://yourdomain.com]your link[/url] is a bbcode link

I have no idea what happens when you put a link in the iso.txt file but if the instructions say no links allowed. I think I would not put any in there.

Ok so the gaelic iso.txt does not follow this rule.
I suggested to remove the http:// part:

what is your question here? exactly what are trying to do?

why are you worrying about which iso txt files have links and which ones do not.?

Maybe there is a URL in a txt file, but it is not a link - a (hyper)link per common understanding you can click etc. to open a web address (see wikipedia <- this is a link, because you can click it in your browser and it leads you to a URL):
"In computing, a hyperlink, or simply a link, is a reference to data that the reader can directly follow either by clicking, tapping, or hovering."

In a txt- file, you simply have a URL in text form which you can't click etc. You need to copy and paste it to a program that interprets URLs and transform them into a link. Those programs are eg. web-browsers or some more comfortable editors.

Nothing in your post is a link, because you can't click it (intentionally because you put them in [c]-Tags ;) :mrgreen:

If you don't put them in tags, phpBB magically transforms URL into link whenever possible

you can't use it in a post but it is used for any and all links in all of the template files of the styles.
