Recommended Posts

I want  if I select the English language Flag in the website the blog returns
Facebook like in English.

and if I select Portuguese Flag in the website, the blog  returns:
Facebook like Portuguese.

 

IN RESUME: I want bilingual Social plugin.

 

<script type="text/javascript">
                    (function(d, s, id) {
                      var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
                      if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
                      js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;
                      js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/pt_PT/all.js#xfbml=1";
                      fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
                    }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));
</script>

Also, I want it for DATE format in my blog posts (weekday and Month ) to be bilingual. For instance if English flag is selected then returns date format like
Saturday, February 21, 2016

and if Portuguese flat is selected then return
Sábado, 21 de Fevereiro de 2016.

So, how to adjust the javascript to set a language acording to the user selection through flag.

Regards.

I want something like this but I am not sure where to start.

 

<ul id="first-languages" class="countries_ul">
            {foreach from=$languages key=k item=language name="languages"}
                <li {if $language.iso_code == $lang_iso}class="selected_language"{/if}>
                {if $language.iso_code != $lang_iso}
                    {assign var=indice_lang value=$language.id_lang}
                    {if isset($lang_rewrite_urls.$indice_lang)}
                        <a href="{$lang_rewrite_urls.$indice_lang|escape:htmlall}" title="{$language.name|escape:'html':'UTF-8'}" rel="alternate" hreflang="{$language.iso_code|escape:'html':'UTF-8'}">
                    {else}
                        <a href="{$link->getLanguageLink($language.id_lang)|escape:htmlall}" title="{$language.name|escape:'html':'UTF-8'}" rel="alternate" hreflang="{$language.iso_code|escape:'html':'UTF-8'}">
     
                    {/if}
                {/if}
                        <img src="{$img_lang_dir}{$language.id_lang}.jpg" alt="{$language.iso_code|escape:'html':'UTF-8'}" width="16" height="11" />
                {if $language.iso_code != $lang_iso}
                    </a>
                {/if}
                </li>
            {/foreach}
            </ul>

Hi,

 

I supose that you are trying to change it on the template file (.tpl), you should use the smarty template language.... try to use

<script type="text/javascript">
                    (function(d, s, id) {
                      var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
                      if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
                      js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;
{if isset($language_code) && $language_code=="en-us"} 
js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_us/all.js#xfbml=1";
{else}
js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/pt_PT/all.js#xfbml=1";
{/if}                     
                      fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
                    }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));
</script>

@Flávio's

Thank you for your prompt response.

Yes I want that I will try and I will let you know.

 

And what about the date in the same way?

Right now ive tried to change it but just was able to change into this format

Example: Saturday, 21 de February,2016.

 

I want to translate the weekday and the month into Portuguese and let it choose according to language flag selection as you did it above. Where to do it.

 

I just saw this part (file: _listing_blog.tpl)

 

{if $config->get('listing_show_created','1')}
        <span class="blog-created">
            <span class="icon-calendar"> {l s='On' mod='leoblog'}: </span>
            {strtotime($blog.date_add)|date_format:"%A, %e de %B, %Y"}
        </span>
        {/if}

 

Thanks.

Also I want ''if instruction'' above.

Yes, you will use in the same way

{if $config->get('listing_show_created','1')}
        <span class="blog-created">
            <span class="icon-calendar"> {l s='On' mod='leoblog'}: </span>            
{if isset($language_code) && $language_code=="en-us"}
{strtotime($blog.date_add)|date_format_locale:"%A, %e de %B, %Y":"us_EN"} 
{else}
{strtotime($blog.date_add)|date_format_locale:"%A, %e de %B, %Y":"pt_PT"} 
{/if} 
        </span>
{/if}

for more information....

If it does not work, you will need create a variable on the controller file and pass to the tpl file....

Maybe that was due to not find the field to translate those expressions.

I have translated on the source .tpl file not allowing me to put two options, english and portuguese words.This is applicable to the date.

If you know where to put english and portuguese returned words to facebook like and date (if I am correct) please, share it with me.

 

Regards.

To translate the facebook block, try to use.... to me works fine.

    //console.log(jQuery('html')[0].lang+'test');
    var lang = jQuery('html')[0].lang;
    if(lang=='pt-pt')
    js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/pt_PT/all.js#xfbml=1&appId=334341610034299";
    else if(lang=='pt-br')
    js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/pt_BR/all.js#xfbml=1&appId=334341610034299";
    else
    js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1&appId=334341610034299";
    
	fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);

in your case would be

<script type="text/javascript">
                    (function(d, s, id) {
                      var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
                      if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
                      js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;

var lang = jQuery('html')[0].lang;
if(lang=='pt-pt') 
js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/pt_PT/all.js#xfbml=1";
else 
js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_us/all.js#xfbml=1";

                    
                      fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
                    }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));
</script>
