xili-language version 2.17.x for newest WordPress 4.2

The WordPress Core team says : We’ve pushed the scheduled release (WP 4.2) date by a day due to the 4.1.2 security release that went out on Tuesday morning.

xili-language version 2.17.x is shipped with some improvements:

  • possible to choose active widgets (5th tab in settings) like the newest xili-category,
  • better compatibility with plugin WP JSON REST API v. 1.2.1 currently in dev.
  • (security) fixes…

xili-language version 2.16.3 : maintenance and ready for 2.17

Some fixes of Warning or Notice in rare situations.
A new Widget category class (with new Walker) for adapted numbering according current language. This new Widget must be registered by webmaster in his theme via few line of code. Because it is a new widget named ©xili Widget, you must set it via the Appearance/Widgets settings page (and remove default Categories widget) ;-)

Widget “Archives” is improved (through filtering) to display only months with posts of target/displayed languages. It is recommended to reset cache by adding a post.

  • xili-tidy-tags : version 1.10.1 (sources code rewritting running)
  • xili-dictionary : version 2.10.1 (add features to manage plugin files from folder WP_LANG_DIR – wp-content/languages)

xili-language v. 2.15.1: flag features improved for theme’s developer

xili-language v. 2.15.0 introduced function add_theme_support ( 'custom_xili_flag') to permit flag features inside Media Library.
By adding a parameter array ($args), xili-language v. 2.15.1 introduces a way to register default flags coming from a sub-folder of the theme’s folder. An easy way to provide adapted flags to the webmaster in conformity with the design and look of the theme. No need to upload these preset images.

Example of code to put inside a function call by an add_action ‘after_setup_theme‘ (priority set to 12)

%2$s is used in ‘path’ because the flags are inside the child theme in this example. Here, it is supposed that all the pictures are present.

To deliver examples of loop, twenty fourteen-xili theme is managed inside xili-language plugin itself using available language list and testing if picture exists. And latest version of twenty thirteen-xili, will include another way.

xili-dictionary version 2.9 shipped: the path to maturity !

Step by step, xili-dictionary (> 5 years old) reaches maturity. It is possible to manage language files (.po, .pot and .mo) for current theme and plugins.
While using the available items (hook, api, UI items…) in the WP toolbox (and libraries), it is now possible to scan directly the sources of the current theme or a selected plugin. Found translatable items in sources are imported inside the dictionary (with informations and comments given by sources author).

poEdit is a powerful desktop tool for developers. Here, it is possible to work online. On the same screen, it is possible to see the original source text (msgid) and the translations both in multiple languages.
Two ways to see (and select, search or sort) the content of dictionary: a table like WP posts list and a interactive jQuery powered table.

More infos soon…
