    Hey guys,

    I’ve been playing with WPML for a couple of days. I think I have it more or less figured out, but I’ve noticed that there are some areas of Shoutbox where it’s going to be tricky to make translations/other versions since these elements are controlled by the theme options.

    For example, I wanted to change the site logo which I have over the top of my site to a version in English when the language is switched over (it’s currently in Spanish). But the theme doesn’t seem to recognise when the language changes internally for this option (and a few others). How can I get this to be recognised by WPML?

    Yesterday I had a lot of problems with the Template Builder too. It kept resetting all the elements of the various templates every time i switched languages. I reset everything at the WPML end and tried adding a few more of the WPML add ons (Media, String Translation and Sticky Links). It seems to a be a bit better now although I haven’t worked much on the templates so far.

    If you have any tips or tricks please add them in here. It’s a very useful but quite complicated plugin, so it would be good to have some feedback here for everyone else.




    Hi rumblefish,

    I’m not very familiar with WPML but some of the other support crew is. I’ll tag the thread for them to look at see if we can get you some additional incite into it the plugin and the theme.




    Ok Thanks Devin.

    I think I understand it finally (at first it was quite daunting). But now I’ve got my site about 80% configured for the second language, I could do with some help adjusting a few elements in Shoutbox that I can’t control with WPML: changing the site logo for example, and I’m not sure if I can change widgets so easily. Stuff like that.






    Turn off WPML before making changes to the Template Builder. It doesn’t like it at all!

    Best regards,



    I tagged this thread for Kriesi. Shoutbox isn’t 100% translatable at the moment. I’m not sure if Kriesi will update the framework in the future and I leave it up to him to comment on this issue.
