A full copy of GlotPress that’s integrated with your WordPress install, including single sign on.
One click installation of GlotPress, no more fussing around with SVN and limited instructions!
Glot-O-Matic also adds the missing features you need to run GlotPress effectively:
- Manage admin users
- Add and delete and reset passwords for users in the local GlotPress user table
- Delete projects and translation sets
- View your GlotPress site right in the WordPress Admin interface
- Shortcode to embed your GlotPress installation right in to your WordPress front end
- Support for single sign on with WordPress, never see the “Login” link again in GlotPress
This code is released under the GPL v2.
- Download the latest release from GitHub (or trunk if your feeling especially adventurous)
- Extract the archive file into your plugins directory in the glot-o-matic folder, or use WordPress upload plugin feature.
- Activate the plugin in the Plugin options.
- Go to the GlotPress->Settings menu and select your options.
You may also want to take a look at GitHub Updater if you want to stay up to date automatically.
Download File Name
Use translation set slug for download file name
By default when downloading a translation set GlotPress will use the project name plus the locale for the filename. Enabling this option will instead use the translation set slug (which you can set by editing the translation set properties) unless it has not been set or is the default value.
Bulk Translation Download
Enable bulk download of translation sets
If you have a project with many translation sets it can be time consuming to download each one individually, this option will add an action to the project actions menu that will allow you to download all the translation sets at once as a zip file.
By Default PO files will be included in the zip, you can control which types are included by selecting the options below.
Include PO files in bulk downloads
Include PO files in the bulk download zip.
Include MO files in bulk downloads
Include MO files in the bulk download zip.
Include Android XML files in bulk downloads
Include Android XML files in the bulk download zip.
Include .NET files in bulk downloads
Include .NET files in the bulk download zip.
Include Mac/iOS String files in bulk downloads
Include Mac/iOS String files in the bulk download zip.
Remove “Projects” from the breadcrumbs at the top of GlotPress
GlotPres dispalys along the top of the page a series of breadcrumbs (just to the right of the GlotPress logo), if you have only a single project you may want to hide the “Projects” list from the breadcrumbs and this options allows you to do this.
Append the following to the URL of the GlotPress logo link
Like above, if you have a single project you may wish to link to it directly instead of the projects page, which you can do by adding the required path here (for example if you have a project with slug “test-project”, adding “projects/test-project” to this field will take you there whenever you click the GlotPress logo).
Open external links in new windows/tabs
This will force any external links that appear on a GlotPress page (like the “Powered by” link in the footer) to open in a new window instead of the current one. This should always be enabled as clicking on external links will break the resizing of the iFrame used to display GlotPress within WordPress.
Global Google API Key(leave blank to disable)
If you have a Google API key and wish to use it to automatically translate strings in GlotPress you can enter it here. This key will be used for all logged in users. Leaving this blank will disable the global Google Translate option.
Enable per user API Keys
This setting is only required if you have not enabled the global Google API Key but still want to enable the API for specific uses with the options below.
Google API key for [user]
Each admin user will be listed here and can be assinged a unique Google API key to use.
Remove “…Powered By…” from the footer
If you do not want to see the “Powered By” line in the footer you can enable this option to remove it.
Use this url when opening GlotPress
If you have only a single project in GlotPress you may wish to link to it directly instead of the projects page, which you can do by adding the fully quailified URL here (for example if you have a project with slug “test-project”, adding “http://yourserver/wp-content/plugsin/glot-o-matic/glotpress/projects/test-project” to this field will take you directly to that project).
If you have any additional lines you need to add to the gp-config.php file, add them here. You CANNOT manually edit the gp-config.php file as it is rewritten each time a setting is changed or an upgrade is done.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why is Glot-O-Matic not in the WordPress.org plugin directory?
The WordPress plugin directory won’t allow any plugin that installs another application as part of the plugin. Since Glot-O-Matic contains a complete install of GlotPress, it is banned from the WordPress.org plugin directory.
I don’t have GlotPress installed, can I still use Glot-O-Matic?
Yes! Glot-O-Matic is a full one-click install of GlotPress in your WordPress system.
I already have GlotPress installed, can I still use Glot-O-Matic?
No, but you might be interested in GP Integration which has many of the same features.
You also might want to check out the plugins and other features available in Glot-O-Matic Core.
What is the shortcode name?
There are two short codes you can use:
[glot-o-matic] provides a fully embedded copy of GlotPress you can use anywhere short codes are supported.
[glot-o-matic-link] provides a link that will open in a new window directly to GlotPress.
How does the shortcode work?
Also note that external links the “Proudly powered by GlotPress” in the footer, if clicked, will break the resizing script.
