URGH!

That's the best I can do for now. If it's not working I'll work on it tommarow.

Sorry.

If you find any bugs let me know.

Please, please, please, please, CHECK MY WORK BEFORE USING.

I'm new at this and this is the first MOD I have done.

Okay, I just converted the install file to HTML so it should work fine now witout any rectangles. Sorry about that. So here it is, my first MOD.

I'm going to get the demoboard up and running and then work on the Project Road Map.

If you want any features post here and I'll see what I can do.

It is safe to install.

I would wait though, I just submitted 1.0.0 to the MOD database.

(sorry I changed the versioning, I just realized that I versioned it wrong.)

Re: [BETA] Elite Translations (0.1.0)

Post by goethe »

Submitted 1.2.0 to database with an extra feature, the Google frames are broken, but it was rejected, so I'm working on 1.3.0 which features a major code revamping working off of the language files, releasing some of the functions.php edits. And you will no longer have to edit: http://WWW.SOMESITE.COM which is a plus. Complexity will not increase though install time may or may not go up or down.

Hello I am interested in this MOD and I did some testing at your site. I saw some issues that might need attention.

Swap the display language in a running languageswap does give an error. The flags mess up after translation. German language gave Dutch respons. I went not into this. I already past some swaps and bugs before I got Dutch in stead of German.

I now posted a respons so I will be notified of all changes. If some less beta version is released I might use this. Great Idea but still needs some attention. Keep up the good work!
