[SOLVED]

hi all,

i modified messages.po and applied it successfully. however, the changes in messages.po only applied to the sidebar. the main area (where it says 'categories', 'words', 'views' etc) refused to localize. the comment post form also refused to localize.

can any one take a guess as to why this is happening?

(off topic: btw, firefox is truely a snappy fox compared to the IE elephant. )

thanks,

maybe the skin is does not support localization...
try the default skins like 'custom' or whatever see if it works then.

alrite im out of ideas ;) (i'm not a guru just some random - so dont loose hope ;))

Well i figured it would be the skin because alot of the time skins couldnt care less about localization, but plugins/sideitems/panels usually do.

EDIT:
Mayb there is more things that need to replaced in the language file... seeing all the skins didnt pick it up.
Do a search for comment or trackback inside the language file and make sure u've replaced them all

ok, it turned out that i had to choose the language for the post. my test post was set to English. i changed it to arabic and some of the localizations took effect. still, there are some items that didn't translate.

thanks,
