Install our plugin on Forumotion forums
As you may have read in our announcement Launching of Plugin for Forumotion forums that we have released a plugin that will allow Forumotion forums to create multi-lingual topics
What is a multi-lingual topic ?
A #multilingual topic is a special post in your forum that is available in different languages. This feature will allow new guests that don't speak your forum main-language to undestand your topic content and join the discussion
Installation of forumotion plugin
Creation of a forumotion plugin
Some translations are required for your plugin. You can leave the default-ones or update them.. it is up to you
Install your own forumotion plugin
According to your forum version, there are some CSS lines to include in your forum stylesheet. So, go to ACP > Display > Colors > Stylesheet (CSS) and include these lines (according to your forum version)
Explanation of css lines
How does it work ?
Creating a new multilingual post
Once the installation process is completed, you can start creating your own multilingual posts and topics
Thanks to our plugin, a special BBcode button is included in your forumotion editor and it will allow you to include an alias in your post
Alias can be created from your client area from Management > New translation and you and your translators can translate them in different languages from Client area > Pending translations. If you include an alias that hasn't been created yet, the system will return "not found"
Of course you can write a normal post and having only a part in multilingual.
Once included it will appear as in the example (Source mode / WYSIWYG mode)
Now we are ready to post it
In your topic page the alias will be automatically replaced with the content of your translation! Wow!
An icon that you can set during the plugin creation will be displayed for valid multi-lingual posts. A simple post or a not-valid multilingual post will not be marked with this icon.
Selecting the multilingual posts' language
If you want to modify or select a language for your multilingual posts you can go on your forum to Profile > Preferences
There is no need to save the page: the update is made inasync mode. If you see the green success text, your modification is done !
What if an alias does not exist in my language ?
If an alias is valid, but it is not available for in your language, the default version will be displayed and a special icon will notify you of a multilingual post in default language
