  • Marcus Povey replied on the discussion topic Language overrides in the group Elgg Technical Support
    Hi All, Has anyone else had any trouble with language overrides in a plugin on upgrading to Elgg1.5.  It is simply not working for me.  Has the mechanism for language overrides changed? Thanks.
    • According to the PHP documentation "The + operator appends elements of remaining keys from the right handed array to the left handed, whereas duplicated keys are NOT overwritten." Both + and += map to the same function add_function() which calls a hash merge function with the override parameter set to off.

      If language file loading is a significant part of the page load time, it would seem that caching the results would be very useful.

    • @Cash

      Your suggestion didn't work for me except that is broke anything related to that function.

      @Marcus Povey

      Your solution gave me this:

      Fatal error: Unsupported operand types in /mysite/elgg/engine/lib/languages.php on line 39

    • I think they both should work. Mine was just the original code from Elgg 1.2. 

      Try this:

      $CONFIG->translations[$country_code] = $language_array + $CONFIG->translations[$country_code];

      Fair enough though if you folks want to keep the threads neutral that is understandable :) 

    • Matt: Please point oit to me (via private message if you like) and I'll review any post's text for 'neutrality' and act on oi.

      Andy: sorta ok tho yr username does look like an ad in itself ;-)

      This group is anyways to present Egllsters' opinions, experiences, pros, cons --

      That's why [ I ] created  this group -- after seeing [ "(seeing that Dave Tosh @ Elgg wired  request for this kind of info)" . More people post - the better idea we will all have of different hosts.

      When I notice anyone mentionig a new Host - I will usually post a skeleton description here for others to post on along.

    It's a little screwy to configure on a (dv) account, but works once you get past giving the right permission to the data folder.  If I ever get a set process that works, I'll post it here.

    • Any one using GS hosting with a mqysql container?

      If not anyone using GS hosting alone? how does your elgg site perform? how many users do you have?

      I've been searching around and at $20 for GS plus another $20 for mysql lite container... that's looking really darn good to me right now.

      Looking forward to your replies.

      TIA :-)

    • Susan, you might also consider asking this question on a MySQL forum as from your description it looks more like a database problem rather than an Elgg problem.

    • Susan -- true it is a mysql problem -- go to php myadmin and look up the table strucs for the two fields in query and you'll find that the situation is exactly what the error message says -- mysql does not like to compare the "mixed collations"  (1) (utf8_general_ci, IMPLICIT) and (2) (hebrew_general_ci, COERCIBLE) which is what your DB has -- ther's a few more Ellg hebrew lang sites ariound (somewhere..) maybe you can google to find htem or search on the google Elgg groups for "hebrew" to find these people. I only know this last part b/c I recently had a small conversation with one of them.

    • Thanks for your replies which were a great help. As my site is on a hosted server and I really know nothing about sql, I finally got in touch with their support and they fixed it for me.  Something to do with SET NAMES in the database
