FAQ

How do I translate OoohBoi Ghost Elements to a different language?

First of all you gonna need gettext catalogs (.pot files) editor. My favorite is POedit. For the purpose of translation you can use any other gettext editor. Google to find one!
So…

Open a file named “ooohboi-ghost-elements.pot” which can be found in “ooohboi-ghost-elements/lang/” folder. Translate then save/export two files; “ooohboi-ghost-elements-YOUR_LOCALE.po” and “ooohboi-ghost-elements-YOUR_LOCALE.mo”.

Be sure to keep your language files in “ooohboi-ghost-elements/lang/” folder!

What exactly YOUR_LOCALE stands for?

Well it’s more like a tag that helps WordPress identify language being used with it. For example, if you need to localize your plugin copy to Dutch, you’ll save translated files as “ooohboi-ghost-elements-nl_NL.po” and “ooohboi-ghost-elements-nl_NL.mo”. If you need to translate to French it’s gonna be “ooohboi-ghost-elements-fr_FR.po” and “ooohboi-ghost-elements-fr_FR.mo”. And so forth.

Oh crap, there's a horizontal scroller on my page. What am I gonna do?

Ghost elements can be positioned at will and resized at will too. Which means that they might break through any content wrapper causing the horizontal scroller to show up.

In case your WordPress theme doesn’t use overflow-x: hidden; on BODY and HTML elements, this addon allows you to get rid of the scroller with just one mouse click. Here’s how…

  1. Click on the page “Settings” icon – it’s a little cog icon in the lower left corner of the editor
  2. Be sure that Settings tab is opened and General Settings panel expanded
  3. There’s an option saying “Get rid of the Horizontal scroller?” at the very bottom. Set to YES to remove the scroller.
