Login/Start New Account in your own language?


Hi,

have I missed something? because I would like it to be able for people who join my messageboard to fill in the join-form in the same language as I has set up in the actual messageboard (swedish). Is this possible?

Also, is it possible to make a messageboard that does NOT require login (also for posting!)??? I would like to have the defualt set to NO LOGIN for viewing AND posting of messages, but at the same time give the possibility for those messageboard-visitors who wants to become members, to apply for membership on a page in swedish...

I do not believe that is possible at this time. The pages for logging in and signing up for an account are only in English. There may be plans introduce other pages in the future though.

It is not possible to allow anonymous (ie not logged in) posting on Runboard message boards. You have to have a username to post on any board.

Internationalisation of non board pages will be added, but I can't give any date for that.

OK! Thanks! Then i know.

Some follow-up questions:

1) You cant estimate the time for internationalised pages at all? Within a Year? 6 months...???

2) Is it possible to copy the "Create Account"-page, putting it on my own server, and there translate the form?

3) Is it possible to edit the "Learn More"-link and "Create Account"-link pointing to a page on my own server?

No. It's a LOT of work and not my top priority by a long shot. I suppose it will be done after less than a year.

I appreciate very much that you prefer to ask first. emoticon Yes, go ahead, however I can not give you any guarantee that it will work. It should work, however. Error messages will still be english, by the way. You can probably work around it with some Javascript, though.

Yes, the custom language set feature (control panel > board mgmt > customize language set) is the tool you need.


Make all the site international is something that I wanted to do since the beginning. However, it is a real lot of work - there is a lot of text to translate AND keep up to date. That "keep up to date" is mainly what keeps me from starting the work on it. Additionally, my software just doesn't have the code to deal with many languages yet.

I definitely would like to attract non english visitors, partly because I'd like to spread the load on the servers more evenly throughout the day, instead of just having a big load spike during the USA/Canada prime time.

Thor, I'm perfectly willing to start on the general runboard pages and put them into German.

Shall I? emoticon

Again, thanks a lot for Your answers emoticon

I fully understand the problems with time for translating. If I get my own messageboard up and running the way I like it, and can customize some pages of my own, I'll gladly share the translations with You! But first I must get the hang of it all...

Regarding Error Messages I can accept that these are in english. It's the login/create account that must be in swedish for my messageboard to work smoothly.

Ok, now I will experiment some more to get a totally swedish messageboard, including "Create Account"-form emoticon

Probably not.

It will be a while before I even start thinking about working on that, and there may be a lot of changes to the pages meanwhile. Don't waste your time.
