How to change wordpress theme-language (or individual phrases)
Posted on 2014-12-18
Hey, I encountered some problems with a theme, I am trying to set up for a friend. The theme is called Multipress, is from Momizat.
In trying to figure out the way to change the text in the "read more" link, I was advised to change the PO- and the MO files with a program called poedit.
I then tried to alter different language files in the wp-content/multipress/languages folder. Here is what I did in multiple instances (with different sets of PO- and MO-files):
1. With Filezilla I downloaded the PO-file, and put an .old extension on the files (the PO and Mo) on the server.
2. I then opened the PO file with POedit, made the correction to the "read more" text, saved the new po file version and compiled an new corresponding mo-file. I then uploaded the new files back to the languages folder.
This changed nothing. There were several sets of PO and MO-files in the folder, and I tried the above procedure with sevberal of them, including one called default.po (and .mo).
I then - on the basis on advice from the Momizat Support - proceeded to try a plugin called codestyling-localiation, which did not work.
The main Question is of course: What is my mistake?
I suspect that I am somehow tampering with the wrong files. So one way to reframe the question is
which files are the right ones?
Is there a way a setting somewhere that points to the files being used (so I can now which one to change, or change the setting)?
All the best
