Solved How to display forum from Right to Left

Post by 5arid on February 21st 2014, 4:09 pm

Hi
I am from Iran and my language is Farsi
Farsi is very similar to Arabic and it is written from Right to Left
So the forum display should be from Right to Left
It seems the best option for me is phpBB2 with its default skin
By default the forum is from Left to Right
Doing this :
Internet Explorer --> Right Click --> Encoding --> Right-To-Left Document
fix the problem for that page
But it is not practical to do it for every single new page of the forum!
So any help for permanent fix would be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance

Oh, by the way here is my forum : www.microbaz.motionforum.net

Yes I tested all of them,
But none of them solved the problem
I think the problem can be solved by putting some kind of dir code somewhere in here :
Administration Panel --> Display --> Templates

But I don't have any idea what code should I use and where exactly it must be placed

Or maybe there is much more simple way to do it, for example just enabling an option in the Administration Panel to make the whole forum display from right to left!

This is a common problem for middle east users, so I searched the forum by using "Display Right to Left" keywords but I couldn't find anything useful!

I found this fix but it is for Subsilver2, it can be used as a guideline :

Fix for Subsilver2 using Right-to-Left Languages in IE
This topic provides instructions to fix an issue in Internet Explorer with subsilver2-based styles on boards using a right-to-left language (such as Arabic). It fixes an issue where the Topic Preview does not appear. Thank you to eman80 for discovering and solving this problem.

Who should use this:

  • Boards with a Subsilver2-based style and a right-to-left language


Open: styles/subsilver2/template/search_results.html

Find in-line:Code: Select all
Code:
title="{searchresults.TOPIC_PREVIEW_TEXT}"

In-line Add Before:Code: Select all
Code:
style="float: right;"


Open: styles/subsilver2/template/viewforum_body.html

In-line Find:Code: Select all
Code:
title="<!-- IF topicrow.TOPIC_PREVIEW_TEXT -->

In-line Add Before:Code: Select all
Code:
style="float: right;"

In-line Find:Code: Select all
Code:
title="<!-- IF topicrow.TOPIC_PREVIEW_TEXT -->

In-line Add Before:Code: Select all
Code:
style="float: right;"


Purge your cache and it should be good to go!

I fixed the problem by installing this skin : P30GAMES network v2
So if anyone in the future have the same problem, he should install the skins of his language one by one and examine his forum until one skin fix the problem.
Please let this topic open so that new ways to fix this problem can be discussed
Thanks!
