new dutch website

Dec 29, 2011 at 9:13 PM


First and foremost, a big thanks to everyone involved in, it is really neat software!

Installed a fresh website, but I have some problems with the language sticking to English in different places:

  • On this page
  • Filter by APML
  • Log in
  • Send (at the end of the form)
  • Required (if you submit the form without filling in anything)
  • Download OPML file (at the end of the blogroll)
  • Various items with the newletter form

Can someone help me with removeing all of the english?

I hope to do this in a really structured way, so we can but these changes back into BlogEngine source.

Removing English

First stop is the:

App_GlobalResources --> labels.(Your Langauge).resx

Make sure the text boxes you want in your language is there if not just add it.

Like Contact Page:

<h1>< %></h1>

Contact Page Screen Shot:


Make sure that the

contact label in your labels.resx is in your language.

Example for the

 <data name="contact" xml:space="preserve">
    <value>Contatto</value>  <--- This is the non-english word for Contact


If there is a section that has English that there is no label tag for

then make a new one.

Just put <%=Resources.labels.NewLabel %> in place of the english word

in the spot where you want it translated.

Then add that to your .resx file.

Now to help out The community just upload your new .resx file and any changes you had to

manually make to add new labels to BlogEngine.

Two ways you can do this:

1. Through the Issue Tracker then attach your files at the bottom and explain what you did in the Description field.

2. Make a fork  then when you are ready do a "Pull" request and if it gets approved it will be merged in with the code set.

Like this:

To Delete the "Submit to DotNetKicks

Go to your Themes --> ThemeName -->PostView.ascx

Look for this Code:

<a rel="nofollow" title="Index <%=Index %>"

target="_blank" href="

<%=Server.UrlEncode(Post.AbsoluteLink.ToString()) %>

&amp;title=<%=Server.UrlEncode(Post.Title) %>">

 Submit to DotNetKicks...</a>  

Just remove it.

Thats it :)

Just as a FYI:

Any time you want to edit html thats releated only to "Posts"  then the "PostView.ascx  is the file you want to edit.

Hope this helps,
