I always wanted to have a double language website, I did have one a few years ago when I found a good plugin called Xili language (I think) but then it was discontinued (as all the plugins for WordPress) so I decided to keep the English version and delete the Italian one.
But having an Italian version was always on my to do list, I tried other plugins but each one of them has flaws and I always ask: “will they keep up with new Wordpess version?”. So I decided to look for another way to have both languages.
At first I thought of stop using WordPress and start using Joomla since this “script” has a way to have a multi-language website, but I didn’t want to learn everything again, how to use it and how to code a theme, so I looked around a bit more.
At the end I opted for the multi-site version of WordPress. I think it’s the best way to have a multi-language website.
A few weeks ago, I coded my theme from scratch and I wanted to have my own emoticon like previously, but with the new WordPress I couldn’t without the same old plugin which wasn’t updated in years. Since I wanted to have up to date code, I tried a new one. But nothing. Reading online I discovered that now WordPress uses emoji, using scripts that are full of errors and making the website slow.
I tried to follow tutorials online but nothing worked…
Every post in my index page has a ‘xox Laura’ (before ‘Posted By *Ra’) image, some of you wondered how I did it. I’m sure there are other methods out there and maybe some plugins or easier ways but here how I make it.
Yesterday, about 2 pm, Spillo, my sweet dog left us… I was sad but I knew he was/is in a better place where he’s not suffering… Poor puppy he was always so tired…
In the meantime I opened 3 more fanlists, two are coming soon and two are pending approval I’m thinking of moving the collective here since I don’t update this site anymore… Because I’m not inspired to graphic anymore (all fault to NCIS since it’s gone bad and broke my inspiration, too hope in it and it was crushed) and I don’t have the willpower to write articles… But I love wordpress and don’t want to just erase everything… and blogging in English is a pain… Maybe I’ll blog only in Italian from now on… Will see…
I think I’ve finished translating the site :shifty: … It took me a lot and after I deactivated the old language plugin I found out it added a div to my link page!! And I was freaked out X( because it worked a moment before… and then, poof… nothing (of course I stopped freaking out when I found out it was the plugin…) so I changed the bookmark template again, now it works (can’t believe a plugin add a div!! but not a <div> and </div>, gosh no! only a </div>! now I understand why I had to erase it from the template, gee!)
So if you find some errors please report them! I tried to look at everything but I’m only human not an alien :smart: :grin:
Hello everyone… When you have no time ‘bad things’ happen… With the new version of wordpress some plugins don’t function properly so until the authors of those plugins work on them (bless you all, you really do a great job on them) some pages are yuck… Please be patient… And now I have to convert all the italian pages (53 tutorials!!) with another plugin because the one I have doesn’t work… I have a tutorial ready to post but I can’t until I have the italian translation ready… I’m trying and see if I can post it with the new plugin and keep the old ones with the other plugin, if there’s no conflict I’ll let it be for the time being (since I have exams at the university…) then little by little I’ll try to convert everything.
I even decided to erase some plugins because I’m not sure about them… Pray for me please…
Later –> Ok, it’s more complex than I thought… So right now I have both plugins but I had to ‘erase’ the flag where there is a transaltion… The ‘important’ things are tutorials and they have a direct link to the English or Italian page, the rest is not that important, I mean if there isn’t an Italian version for now. So I think I’m ready to post the tutorial but I need to translate it first so maybe I will post another ‘later’ later
Later 2 –> Added the tutorial Gee! It didn’t work!! and then I found out I missed a tag! What a looser…
Wow, one post in all May… what a lazy butt! Well I didn’t just stop, something potentially bad happened and I didn’t have the willpower to enjoy my site (that and if you add the shitty ending of NCIS, my mood took really a dive for the worst but I’m not going to talk about that stupid TV show anymore). Now the potentially bad news which weren’t bad at the end, are over and my mood increase a bit from those good news (no, I’m not going to tell you about them in particular that is my life and I don’t post about personal facts). So here I am!
As from June 2 I started some wordpress tutorials, my hostee, Emilia, needed some help so I said, why not? So I created them and I’m writing an HTML tut now which will be ready in a few days.
‘Not really back’ in the title because classes are almost over so soon I will start exams and I need to focus on them so I don’t know how much time I can spare for my baby (the site).
What do you think of the new theme? I kinda like it and I change the error page, too. If you want to see it just click here
And I revamped the links page which now is mantained by wordpress. I was finally able to put links in column… wasn’t that difficult but gosh! Took me a hell of a time to understand! Want a tutorial? Maybe I’ll make one
Tomorrow is the big day, the hospital didn’t call this time to postpone wish my father luck!
So, what’s new in this beautiful Sunday? Yes, I’m out of my mind seeing that it’s cloudy…
As the title says, all tutorials are revamped meaning that they are written in wordpress and translated in Italian, except maybe for one which I will translate when I’ll totally change the English version and the paintshop pro ones which I didn’t import to WP and I think I won’t translate seeing that I don’t use the program anymore… Oh if anyone wants to buy it let me know
Tomorrow is monday and my father goes to the pre-surgery thingie, he will have surgery soon to his deviated nose. And tomorrow there’s Without a Trace, it should have been on Tuesday with RIS but they changed everything!! Now RIS is on wednesday with CSI damn it!!
Can you believe I had an accident in the swimming pool?? Last friday I went to the swimming pool as always and when I enter my lane which was occupied by other three people, a man accidentally head-shouldered me. Because he was surpassing the one he had before because he was slow but he didn’t see me go into the pool :grin: It was kinda funny :p And then yesterday my neck hurt but I don’t know if it was caused by the accident or I slept bad (I think the second because he touched my shoulder, not my neck or head).
Well… going to think what to add after. Later.
Yep, you heard right, I passed Phisics II today and I’m quite happy! For this reason I began a new layout (because I’m happy, not because I passed the exam ). The design is read so take a lil’ pick:
Yesterday was my mom’s birthday and my father gace her a big bouquet she was so happy! Yeah the idea was mine but the money was my dad’s
So now I go back to change the theme and I will try to implement the new clendar… agr! Why it works sometime and others not??
Later –> Found why the calendar didn’t work :grin: … Apparently it conflicts with ajax-comment-posting plugin so I deactivated it. Unfourtunatelly now the comment form doesn’t use ajax anymore… Now I need to change the Events calendar code to fit with my various themes because the one installed can be changed with only one theme… Will keep you updated
