RTL support

Recommended Posts

Dear Pagelines team, it is good to see DMS maturing from update to update - and you seem to be hard at work because the updates are coming in fast! Is there any hope of RTL support being sorted out soon? I am using the WPML, Wordpress Multilingual plugin, one of the main multilingual setups. There still seems to be a basic disagreement - in text boxes, headings etc. RTL works fine, but when I have an entire page set to an RTL language, the DMS Editor itself turns its English text - and buttons etc. - to LTR, rendering it practically unusable. Here is a screenshot to illustrate this. 

 

Or perhaps I am overlooking something or doing something wrong. I could not find any Forum threads on RTL solutions - if you have any, please let me know. I'd be very grateful. 

 

But most of all, I long for the days when DMS would be as seamlessly integrated with WPML as it used to be with Pagelines, when everything was nearly perfect and very efficient.

 

Thank you for your tireless work in the background! Yours faithfully, Jan.

Hello there @caspersjan 

 

Thank you for your kind words :) 

 

With Regards RTL support - have you seen the documentation here http://docs.pagelines.com/customize/adding-custom-rtl-support


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

Dear Martin, I appreciate your advice (which was instant unlike this reply which took a few weeks!) and know where to look now. So far, I have not found a way to solve this RTL problem of the flipped DMS Editor. I am working around it by pretending to use a LTR language and changing the language name at the back end. Inside all the DMS sections I have tried so far RTL works fine, it is just that the Editor gets flipped and thus becomes unusable. I'm sure this will be ironed out in a future version. Thanks again, merry Christmas and good luck for the new year to come. Yours faithfully, Jan.

Hi @jan

 

Could you create an admin level account for your site and send the credentials, along with a link to this topic to hello at pagelines dot com and we can talk a look for you?

Hello Martin, this I shall do! I'll create two languages alongside the English, one LTR and one RTL, so the difference and problem will be evident and perhaps you and your team may find what's amiss or if I am overlooking something myself. It will take me a week or two until I get around to this - in the meantime I'll go into the New Year with the warm glow of customer care and community. Thank you and keep up the good work in 2014! Yours faithfully, Jan.

      Hello,
      We are working on a 2 languages site (https://liguecardioliga.be) with wpml, and lately the call of a category in the loops section (and all the sections requiring a category to select posts) doesn't work in the translated language. It worked well until recently so I wonder if it's because of a recent update (wordpress, wpml, pagelines, a plugin?). Anyone has the same problem? a solution?
      TIA

      I am trying to get WPML working on my Pagelines instance. I am interested in getting help from anyone that has tried, especially @claudedagenais who seams to have it working.
      My issues are:
      How to translate header and footer How to get the menu to show all nav even if not translated How to get non-translated posts /pages to show up when only in default language - true for Masonry, Newsfront, and other list showing items... I have zero skills in PHP and its my site for my company. 
      note: Multi-lingual is a business decision and is required. I have vetted all of the multi-lingual options and the only one fit for purpose is WPML.

      Hello,
      How can you set the translations with platform5, the parts that are not in pages or posts? Texts and images…

      Hello, we have this strange new problem with DMS2 when used with WPML. We can save our change to the section only in the main language. When trying to edit DMS sections in the other languages DMS won't let us save. The work around is to change the main language in WPML to the language you want to change and switch back afterward to the language you really want to be the main one.
      This is a new problem that did not exist before a few days ago. We are unsure if it is linked to the Wordpress 4.4 update, the WPML 3.3.3 Update or the DMS 2.2.1.1 update (!) that we did recently. We tried unsuccessfully deactivating everything (except WPML of course) including our child theme in a test environment. We can't turn off the DMS editor either from the other language pages. Some of the websites we are having this problem with are  http://www.artssutton.com/ , http://journalletour.com/, ...

      I am using pageline (v2.2.1.1) and WPML (3.3.3). WP 4.3.1
      Here is the problem: when I set the language to be a path like this:
      http://localhost/pageline/zh-hant
      all [pl_site_url] will become above, which means, if you are using images in textbox, or pageheader, the full URL would become
      http://localhost/pageline/zh-hant/wp-content/upload......
      which is wrong.
      Furthermore, if the site requires AJAX, the calling URL becomes:
      http://localhost/pageline/zh-hant/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php
      which is also wrong.
      Now you may want me to use ?lang=zh-hant instead of using /zh-hant/, but it would become
      http://localhost/pageline/?lang=zh-hant/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php
      which is also wrong.
      Can you please tell me how to fix it?
      Thank you very much in advance for your help.
