3.0.3 to 3.0.4 -- language update?

Post by Alexander George »

I have a 3.0.3 board with many languages available. I am intending to convert to 3.0.4. Must I also update all my languages? (I'm hoping not, as that would take a really loooong time!)

Thanks.

I dont think you need to update your language. As when u go to language pack download, it only shows language for 3.0.x olympus. So basically the language all should be one.

Anyway to make sure you might want to wait for official reply for mods here. But you can actually see the change log and you will know if there is language update.

RMcGirr83, could you explain your post? Are you saying I need to run some mod to update my language packs from 3.0.3 to 3.0.4? If so, where is the mod?

Thanks.

Language packs change between versions, there hasn't been an update without language pack changes. Occasionally they might cause errors if you do not have the appropriate language pack for your version, but almost always they work fine.

What language are you using? Try poking your language's author to relase a new version. If you are using a very modified version of a language pack which is up-to-date, you can run it through a tool like WinMerge to fix up differences.

From your location I'm assuming you're using an english language pack, in that case you would need to manually apply the changes Rich has posted.

Thanks. I have about 30 languages available, none modified. I'd really rather not update each of those if it makes no difference, since it seems the update must be carried out individually (uninstalling the old one, uploading the new one, and installing the new one). If you think it will cause no harm to use the old versions of the language packs, then I think I'll just leave them. But I was seeking expert advice on that.

You don't have to re-install them. Updating the files by overwriting them with new ones is enough. Just be careful, if you made modifications due to MODs, you will lose those changes.

You don't have to reinstall the language packs, you just have to overwrite the old files with the new ones.

In my opinion language packs should always be updated. An outdated language pack doesn't always cause an apparent error, but in 3.0.4 there was a significant change: the new relative date display feature. So I strongly recommend you to update your language packs especially this time.

Thank you. Finally, how can I tell which should be updated? Here, http://www.phpbb.com/languages/, the packs all have different dates on which they were updated. Should I just update those language packs that have been updated since, say December 1, 2008?

Yes, it would be a good idea to update the language packs that have a newer last updated date than the time you installed your board. Normally all language packs should be updated, but as not all of them are constantly updated, it is not possible.

Thank you. One further question: could you tell me exactly which directory the relevant language image set files should be placed into? What precisely would the path be? (I am only using the prosilver style.)

Images for a language are stored in styles/prosilver/imageset/{lang_code}/.

Imagesets don't need to get updated, they often stay the same. Just be sure you have them uploaded for the specific language, since if you don't, you won't see any posting buttons.
