Geoff B – 4.3.3. – Month Titles in List view reverted to English/ Non capitals!

    Hi,

    We spent quite some time getting all the translations sorted for Events Calendar.

    Now we updated to 4.3.3

    On the French version of our site, all Month dividers/titles, are in English!

    This is a network install. The problem only appears on http://cpmr.org/fr/events

    the titles are still in the correct language on other sites in the network

    http://cpmr-atlantic.org/fr/events/

    In Spanish, they are not capitalised correctly.

    http://cpmr-atlantic.org/es/events/

    How can we fix this, without manually translating all the strings ourselves (again!) I’d hope the translations would be correct as supplied.

    Thanks

    Greg

    Hello again Greg,

    Let’s address these nasty issues

    On the French version of our site, all Month dividers/titles, are in English!

    This is a network install. The problem only appears on http://cpmr.org/fr/events

    the titles are still in the correct language on other sites in the network

    You seem to be on a roll here (kudos on that), because the Month dividers do appear in french when I visit your site.

    Let me know if there is anything else I can help with on this topic.

    In Spanish, they are not capitalised correctly.

    I am not sure why the Month titles are not being capitalized properly in Spanish.

    But, the fix here is pretty easy. Just some CSS does the trick

    .tribe-events-loop .tribe-events-list-separator-month {
    text-transform: capitalize !important;
    }

    Let me know how that goes.

    Best regards,
    Geoff B.

    Hey Geoff,

    I think that problem was occuring due to the WPML url mismatch on /events/, as you can see in the address bar the url was

    http://cpmr.org/events?lang=fr

    When it should have been (as it is now):

    http://cpmr.org/fr/events/

    However…The problem is still here on a sub site in the network. French site has english dividers.

    http://cpmr-intermed.org/fr/events/

    I’ve cleared cache and refreshed permalinks

    Thanks

    BTW – (fixed the spanish capitalisation issue thanks. Also had to include .tribe-event-date-start and .tribe-event-date-end)

    Hey Greg,

    I am glad you are making good progress on these issues.
    Well played!

    I do not have access to that specific sub site, but I would recommend looking for the translation of months in WPML’s string translation. Especially the ones coming from¬†WordPress (e.g.: search for “November”)

    In my experience, sometimes these strings are not translated on some installs.

    Let me know how that goes.

    Best regards,
    Geoff B.

    Hi Geoff,

    I searched all strings. Then specificallly, WordPress had 2 instances of November, correctly translated and already marked as Translation complete (screenshot attached)

    I also looked in

    tribe-common
    tribe-events-calendar-pro

    No strings

    I’ve added admin rights to that site for you now if you want to take a look.

    The odd thing is that this was working fine until recently. Whilst I can’t be sure it’s linked, the site admins reported it changed around the time I upgraded to 4.3.3 recently

    Thanks all the best,

    Greg

    Hey Greg,

    I just went in and it looks like your setting under WPML >¬†Theme and plugins localization was set to “Don’t use String Translation to translate the theme and plugins”.

    Simply changing it to “Don’t use String Translation to translate the theme and plugins” seems to have corrected the issue.

    Have a good week-end,

    Geoff B.

    Hey there! This thread has been pretty quiet for the last three weeks, so we’re going to go ahead and close it to avoid confusion with other topics.
