    Hello! Just a quick question regarding language and terminology…

    Is it possible that a setting could exist for Church Admin that would allow churches to change labels throughout?

    Before using this plugin, I had never heard of the term “Rota”, and my church staff just can’t catch on to it, either. :)

    I know it’s not a big deal, but just one of those things. Ha!

    The plugin is internationalised so can be translated into American English. It’s pretty easy to do – I’ve done a tutorial

    Please email me the file if you do it!

    I went through the process in your tutorial, and here is what I find in the wp-config.php file for Internationalization:

    * WordPress Localized Language, defaults to English.
    * Change this to localize WordPress. A corresponding MO file for the chosen
    * language must be installed to wp-content/languages. For example, install
    * de_DE.mo to wp-content/languages and set WPLANG to ‘de_DE’ to enable German
    * language support.
    define(‘WPLANG’, ‘en_US’);

    Notice that it calls for a MO file, not a PO file… and that it says it must exist in the wp-content/languages folder, not the church-admin/languages folder.

    Any thoughts? I’m not able to get the translations to work yet.

    wp-content/languages refers to the translation of WordPress itself.
    A plugin has it’s own way of telling wordpress there is a translation within itself usually in a subfolder of the plugin called languages.

    The instructions on wordpress.org are not clear enough and I’ve only been uploading .po files not the .mo ones. The next update will have them both for safety.

    I’m just thoroughly testing at the moment because I’ve changed every single file to make it ssl friendly and so won’t to be sure there are no bugs.

    Watch out for v0.6000 which will have facilities management (rooms and stuff like projectors) too!
