I'm playing around with language settings to work out the best way to set-up a multi-lingual site I'm developing, and I've been experimenting with various plug-ins etc., but right now I've got them all inactive because WP isn't behaving how I'm expecting and I'm going loopy trying to work out what I'm doing wrong.
Right now, for testing, all I want to do is be able to manually flip the default wordpress install with twentyten theme between English and Spanish by changing the appropriate line in the wp_config.php file.
So I have an English install of WP3.1 (with other languages, including Spanish -- es_ES -- in the wp-content/languages folder).
I have downloaded the Spanish version of wordpress with its default twentyten theme so that I can copy the es_ES.po and .mo files from wp-content/themes/twentyten/languages into the same folder on my server.
So I'm good to go, right?
I just edit the line in wp_config.php on my server to say this:
define ('WPLANG', 'es_ES');
Restart my browser, go to the site (barriole.com) and I should be seeing some of the page in Spanish -- not the posts, but things like "Posted on...", "Posted in uncategorized", "2 Comments", "Edit" etc., these are the things that should be in Spanish, no?
Because everything stays in English, every last thing. All my admin pages, too, which I thought would switch to Spanish too.
Anyone see what I'm doing wrong?
I have turned off a caching plug-in I was using to make sure that's not the problem, and as I say, I've used various translation plug-ins but they have all been disactivated.
While I'm here, assuming I can get this to work, I've had trouble finding localization files for buddypress, and wondered whether there were localization files already prepped for any of your themes, specifically bp-social or bp-fun?
Thanks for you help. Hasta pronto.
