Solved Author preceded by "pro" instead of "by"

Post by jamillos on February 9th 2017, 11:59 am

Hello,

I've tried searching, but no luck. I just need to change one thing – when someone creates a new topic, his name on the left is preceded by the word "pro" instead of "by" or something like that. Can I change that somewhere? Please bear in mind I'm not exactly skilled in html codes etc. Smile

Thanks a lot in advance.

Hi,

I have found roughly the links you mentioned, but there is no "pro" anywhere. It's just this:

<span>{topics_list_box.row.LAST_POST_AUTHOR}&nbsp;<dfn>{L_LASTPOST}</dfn>

{topics_list_box.row.LAST_POST_IMG}<br style="clear:left;" />{topics_list_box.row.LAST_POST_TIME}</span>

What do I do?
Thanks.

EDIT:
The same thing happens inside the topics themselves. On the top of each post it says "pro" instead of "by" and "za" instead of "on" (date). It goes like this:

pro UserName za 31/12/2016, 15:16

Any thoughts?

What is the forum's default language, and what language do you have set in your profile?

P.S. After visiting your forum, I can see that it is not in English. By is an English word. What language are you trying to fix?

Hi guys, sorry for the delay.

Yes, the default language is Czech. However, these words albeit being Czech don't really make any sense in the locations where they are. I mean, "pro" means "for" in CZ, and "za" is complicated but definitely not anything like "on" meaning a date.
This is how it has been since the beginning, i.e. March 2016; I just kinda didn't sweat it before. Recently, I've changed some icons that looked French/Italian to English (it used to say "repondre" instead of "response" etc.) those were the default ones btw. But that's a different thing.
I think the problem could be that the Czech version might be a bit haphazard; there are some words missing and thus having been replaced randomly or whatever.

I'm gonna try setting the default language to English. On one hand, it's a shame, as some parts are in a nice Czech version. On the other hand, the most important things are the topic/thread buttons, and those are in English already, and pretty much everyone can figure it out anyway, I guess.

Thanks for now; I'll let you know how it turned out.
Sorry for my English... Smile

Ok now it's getting weird.
I switched to EN (admin/general/config), and it worked once I logged off (not in preview). To check it, I logged on as a member, and the same old incorrect words appeared. I deleted all cookies, tried again, but it's still there.
And the weird thing is that those correct words ("by" and "on") CAN be seen there only if I'm not logged in at all! I'm baffled.

EDIT:
Oh and when I'm logged in, it's still in Czech...

Hello,

You need to change the language in your profile as well. Your profile must still be set Czech. Change your profile language to english and this should solve this issue.

In case you don't know, to change the language in profile, click 'profile' in the navigation bar, then go to 'preferences' , find 'board language", change to english and save. This should resolve this issue. Wink

Right, I forgot I only had to switch to English in my Preferences. The trouble is most people will have Czech there, as they want to have CZ environment on the forum.
Which means the thing hasn't been solved at all.
Is there any other way to change it in the html code or something? It has to be adjustable somewhere, right?

We do not have access to the database to change translations. We can only change things that are accessible in the administration panel.

Bummer. I guess they should have hired a better translator. Now that I think about it, this smells of translate.google.com to me... Smile
Well thanks for now, we can close it, unless somebody has any idea...

Nah, it's too much, I've made piece with this hitch, and I suppose the users won't mind that much anyway. If there are any translation modifications available any time later, I surely will use it.

Thanks.
