[Solved] RC2 Any fix For Terminology 'you sent you a message' ?

Wondering if there has been any fix in RC2 for this, or if anyone has worked out how to translate it? I tried to translate it in config/local.php but it didnt work.

    I've never used conf/locale.php. I use my own in locales. Shouldn't matter.

    grep is your friend.

    also tried forum/applications/vanilla/locale/en-CA/definitions.php
    At least you're trying and that deserves 2 compliments.
    Focus on the path in your last try, so forum/applications/vanilla/locale/en-CA/definitions.php
    If I enter your example I get an error
    $Definition['%1$s sent you a %8$s.'] = '%1$s flung you a %8$s.';
    Fix your problem in 2 steps. The fact that you get an error means that the correct file is used.
    First step is to not use the variables, so keep these for now:
    $Definition['You sent you a'] = 'You sent a';
    Second step is to enter variables 1 by 1 and in the end you'll get this code:
    $Definition['%1$s sent you a %8$s.'] = '%1$s flung you a %8$s.';
    $Definition['message'] = 'frisbee';

    Last but not least, focus on the answers given:

    good luck, happy coding.

    Yes that is the wildcard you talk about make sure it is in the string in that order. like so:

    $Definition['%1$s sent you a %8$s.'] = '%1$s any words %8$s.';

    Unless in your language you want to switch them round:

    $Definition['%1$s sent you a %8$s.'] = 'A %8$s was sent by %1$s.';

    Are you saying that if some one else sends a message it says 'you sent you a message'?

    Ok I replicated the problem it could be a bug. Technically you are a reciprocate also, but that is confusing.

    Personally I think it should list all the reciprocates bar yourself.

    ok this will work:
    $Definition['%1$s sent you a %8$s.'] ='%1$s sent %3$s a %8$s';

    However it will only list the first reciprocate, but is good enough for now. I'll open a ticket.

  • you mean locale.php? i would use locales/yourlocale/definitions.php

    Copy everything over from /var/www/test/forum/applications/dashboard/locale/en-CA/definitions.php too.

    Make sure to change it in the dashboard.

  • I think there are far too many way to do this, bound to cause problems, you also have themes, and plugins.

    grep is your friend.

  • Unfortunately that does not work. Seems to be the only thing that cannot be translated.
  • not so

    $Definition['%1$s sent you a %8$s.'] = '%1$s flung you a %8$s.';
    $Definition['message'] = 'frisbee';

    $Definition['%1$s added %3$s to a %8$s.'] = '%1$s included %3$s in a %8$s';
    $Definition['conversation'] = 'private message';

    grep is your friend.

    Can you please paste the full path to correct definitions file?
    For all my other definitions im using..

    /forum/conf/locale.php (does not work)

    also tried forum/applications/vanilla/locale/en-CA/definitions.php (does not work)

    is this the wrong syntax? $Definition['You sent you a'] = 'You sent a';

    If I enter your example I get an error

    $Definition['%1$s sent you a %8$s.'] = '%1$s flung you a %8$s.';



  • neither

    $Definition['You sent you a'] = 'You sent a';

    or

    'You sent you a' => 'You sent a',

    seem to work, in any definition locale for me.
  • it should work fine make sure to enable the locale and set as default in dasboard->locales

    grep is your friend.

  • $Definition['You sent you a'] is not a definition for obvious reasons. 'You' is just one of the possibilities

    grep is your friend.

  • Ok Thankyou Both, So I have the right def file, and my basic definition is on track, so far so good. I understand there must be some kind of wildcard to replace 'you' since it should be any users name right? Likewise the second 'you'. Im assuming these be the variables your talking about?

    My problem then, is that I dont know what these variables should be. Again , sadly, this example, is chinese to me -> '%8$s.'

    Where can I find documentation to learn about these variables please?

    No, If I send a message to somebody, on my profile activity, it says "you sent you a message'
    Presumably because these messages/conversations are between you and the person you sent to, but the grammar is embarrassing. :)

    shouldn't the second 'you' be a wildcard also?

    Its not 'message' I want to change, but the 'you's, im thinking it should say, for ex, if I send fred a message, it should say, Either, you sent fred a message' or, 'camo sent fred a message. or vice versa, no?
  • Thats awesome Mate, thankyou very much! That makes alot more sense. Glad it wasnt just me this time! :) cheers
  • No worries. I'm surprised it went unnoticed for so long.
