#6739 closed defect (bug) (no action required)

New span counter structure interferes with internationalization

Reported by: efrap's profile efrap Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.4.0
Component: Core Keywords: close
Cc: ramiy


Insertion of span tags for counters in 3.4 interferes with internationalization (from .po files). Fails and falls back to english.


bp-groups-loader.php 2.4 line 564 - Members does not translate

'name'            => sprintf( _x( 'Members %s', 'My Group screen nav', 'buddypress' ), '<span>' . number_format( $this->current_group->total_member_count ) . '</span>' ),

bp-groups-loader.php previous version line 513 - Members translates ok

'name'            => sprintf( _x( 'Members <span>%s</span>', 'My Group screen nav', 'buddypress' ), number_format( $this->current_group->total_member_count ) ),

This problem can be found in a few pages, including:
activity/entry.php line 67
activity/index.php line 55
groups/index.php lines 49-52
members/index.php line 52

Other internationalization problems of this type exist - I may submit other tickets if this one is useful here.

Changes were made in #6660.

I don't understand why this would break the translation, but we can investigate. cc'ing @ramiy who made the suggestions originally.

I don't know why it falls back to english, it shouldn't. The code is solid, we did the same thing in WP Core.

Maybe the problem in the translated string? maybe someone translated the string to english using "Copy from original" link?

@efrap, what language are you using?

Using French, English and Spanish. Worked before, tracked down the problem to these files after 2.4 update. Could there be something wrong with my install?

#5 @efrap

.mo .po files have probably changed with 2.4., i.e. "Members" instead of "Members <span>%s</span>" - I will check this today.

That was the problem. Your help was very useful. .po files have been updated, everything is fine. Sorry for wasting your time on this - I should have figured this one out by myself, or in the forums.
