Really? So you must have a different “catch-evolution.pot” file than me – in mine the expressions “All rights reserved” or “Powered by” are not included.
To be sure everything is as should be I copied the above “footer.php” file into the theme’s directory. Now I’m back where I started: a copyright note and theme info – in English. So, what part should I modify in order to change the language but without losing any of this information?
Yes, I have found it – what should I do with these lines? (Please remember that I am a complete ignorant, so be patient with me 🙂
So… I was told to fiddle with the functions.php file ($catchevolution_options_defaults and $catchevolution_options_settings) to change what I wanted to change. And it did work… partially: I managed to translate the copyright notice into my language, but the WordPress and the theme information disappeared. It’s NOT what I wanted, but I’m already tired of this (or maybe I should say: I’ve spent too much time on this trifle) and I will probably leave it as it is now.
So, that’s how things backfire sometimes: Sakin wanted to protect visibility of the theme’s name but it looks that there’ll be no information about it at all, neither in English nor in any other language…
As I have written, I don’t want to REMOVE the copyright note, I want to LOCALIZE it. (I totally agree that a free motive’s author should be duly credited.)
My problem is that I don’t know where to look for the note (it seems to me that it is not included in footer.php and my modification of catchevolution-themeoptions-defaults.php has no effect.)
Thank you very much for your help, in a free moment I’ll have a look at all the information you provided. And if I do not succeed in changing the copyright note, well, I think I can live with it 🙂
Silly me! I’ve just noticed that in the Theme options menu there’s an “Excerpt / More tag settings” tab where the “Continue reading” message can be modified. Definitely much easier than changing the php file 🙂
(The “powered by” problem still unresolved.)
Bingo! It did work, thank you very much.
I’m a bit surprised and disappointed that I had to modify a parent php file – I really liked the concept of a child thanks to which you leave the original (=parent) files untouched. And of course when I install a new version of the theme the changes will be lost. Nevertheless, for the time being I’m glad to have solved this little problem. Thank you for your help.
And speaking about problems… do you know where the copyright notice is generated? I’m quite sure it is not within the theme, it must be “higher” (I suspect WordPress itself). What I want to do is to localize the “Powered by: WordPress | Theme: Catch Evolution” message, but neither a .po file nor the specialized plugin can help.
My problem is very similar: I’m unable to change the “Continue reading →” text with a .po file, the CodeStyling Localization plugin didn’t work, either, so I decided to place a modified php file in my child catalogue. I used the code that Sakin gave above – no result.
I’m using the free version of Catch Evolution, the file I modified was catchevolution-functions.php, in the above code I only replaced “catchbox” with “catchevolution”.
Since I don’t know php, most probably there’s something I did wrong. What was it?
