USER LANGUAGE PROBLEM

Post by Milunice259 »

My board have 2 languages installed:British English (en) and Vietnamese (vi)
The vi (Vietnamese) language, I am making it by my-self because the one on phpbb database is not up to date.
I created new folder named “vi”, copied the original files, and translated it one by one followed the instruction from phpBB website.
When I was translating the common .php file, I did a test.
I changed the default language of my Board to Vietnamese. And changed my user language to British English.
Everything looks fine except all the language in the common.php file still in Vietnamese (Board default).
I checked around but can’t find anybody have the same error like me.
If anyone have known or experienced the problem, please help me!!!

I mean only the language in common.php file showed up. Actually, after diactivated all extension and turned it on 1 by 1, I found the extension that lead to the error. However, I don't know why it happened. When I changed the code in extension from this:
return $this->user->lang('BADGE_TYPE_AVATAR');
to this:
return 'Avatar';
then the problem has gone. Don't know why?

It looks like this extension uses an outdated method for include language keys..

Within 3.3. it should use $this->language->lang() . See https://area51.phpbb.com/docs/dev/3.2.x ... age-object

Look for an update or ask the author for help.

On the other hand, an extension having done the conversion to the lang class doesn't work under older versions of phpBB (like 3.2.4).
