English and arabic at the same time

Recommended Posts

On my new site libyanmediainstitute.com I want to use english in the left sidebar and arabic in the right sidebar.

How do I adjust arabic reading left to right in the right sidebar and in general?

 

An extra question:

I want to increase the font size in the sidebar menus. How do I do that?

I did some searching around and found this forum post in WordPress support that might be helpful: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-to-both-english-and-arabic#post-1655534

 

As for sidebar menu font size, you’ll need to use Custom CSS (in Site Options > Custom Code > Custom CSS/LESS). To find the Custom CSS you need, you'll need to use Firebug (or Chrome Development tools). To learn how to use Firebug for CSS customizations, please review this entire documentation and follow the instructions: http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/custom-css. For help with the font-size attribute, please see these instructions: http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_font_font-size.asp.


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Hi Catrina. Thanks. I'm a fairly new beginner in Pagelines, and this seems very difficult to me regarding the size of the menus. Aren't there other and easier ways to do that?

Regarding the arabic text problem, is there a possibility to "adjust right"?

Regards Per

Hi,

 

Unfortunately, I don't think its possible to have two languages running simultaneously. You can have a multilingual website but, with only one language running at one time. In order to achieve this, you will need to use a plugin, we recommend WPML.

 

If you insist on have two languages running simultaneously, I recommend you ask this question on the Wordpress support forums.

 

If you choose to use the WPML method, then PageLines supports RTL languages, see here for more information - http://support.pagelines.me/docs/getting-started/internationalization-and-localization/


Please search our forums, before posting!

What you need to do is to define the direction to RTL in the styles for the Arabic sidebar and its widgets. But as Ninja said if you need a multilingual website using WPML would be a better idea.
