I have created a custom botton named "Home" on my theme, and I want to localize it.

I know there's already a translation of "Home" in $lang_list_catagories['home']

If I look at the "Register" button in the theme.php, I see that a tag is used {REGISTER_LNK}

I found the section below in the theme.php that mapped {REGISTER_LNK} to $lang_main_menu['register_lnk']


So I added these lines to my theme.php:

Code: [Select]

...

$template_main_menu1 = <<<EOT
...

<!-- BEGIN home -->
                                        <td><img name="spacer" src="images/spacer.gif" width="5" height="33"

border="0" id="spacer" alt="" /></td>
                                        <td><img name="button1_r1_c1"

src="themes/hardwood/images/button1_r1_c1.gif" width="10" height="33" border="0" id="button1_r1_c1" alt=""

/></td>
                                        <td background="themes/hardwood/images/button1_r1_c2.gif">
                                                <a href="/" title="{HOME}">{HOME}</a>
                                        </td>
                                        <td><img name="button1_r1_c3"

src="themes/hardwood/images/button1_r1_c3.gif" width="10" height="33" border="0" id="button1_r1_c3" alt=""

/></td>
<!-- END home -->
...

function theme_main_menu1()
...
    $param = array('{MY_GAL_TGT}' => "index.php?cat=$my_gallery_id",
        '{MY_GAL_TITLE}' => $lang_main_menu['my_gal_title'],
        '{MY_GAL_LNK}' => $lang_main_menu['my_gal_lnk'],
        '{MEMBERLIST_TGT}' => "usermgr.php",
        '{MEMBERLIST_TITLE}' => $lang_main_menu['memberlist_title'],
        '{MEMBERLIST_LNK}' => $lang_main_menu['memberlist_lnk'],
        '{MY_PROF_TGT}' => "profile.php?op=edit_profile",
        '{MY_PROF_LNK}' => $lang_main_menu['my_prof_lnk'],
        '{FAQ_TGT}' => "faq.php",
        '{FAQ_TITLE}' => $lang_main_menu['faq_title'],
        '{FAQ_LNK}' => $lang_main_menu['faq_lnk'],
        '{ADM_MODE_TGT}' => "admin.php?admin_mode=1&referer=$REFERER",
        '{ADM_MODE_TITLE}' => $lang_main_menu['adm_mode_title'],
        '{ADM_MODE_LNK}' => $lang_main_menu['adm_mode_lnk'],
        '{USR_MODE_TGT}' => "admin.php?admin_mode=0&referer=$REFERER",
        '{USR_MODE_TITLE}' => $lang_main_menu['usr_mode_title'],
        '{USR_MODE_LNK}' => $lang_main_menu['usr_mode_lnk'],
        '{UPL_PIC_TGT}' => "upload.php",
        '{UPL_PIC_TITLE}' => $lang_main_menu['upload_pic_title'],
        '{UPL_PIC_LNK}' => $lang_main_menu['upload_pic_lnk'],
        '{REGISTER_TGT}' => "register.php",
        '{REGISTER_TITLE}' => $lang_main_menu['register_title'],
        '{REGISTER_LNK}' => $lang_main_menu['register_lnk'],
        '{LOGIN_TGT}' => "login.php?referer=$REFERER",
        '{LOGIN_LNK}' => $lang_main_menu['login_lnk'],
        '{LOGOUT_TGT}' => "logout.php?referer=$REFERER",
        '{LOGOUT_LNK}' => $lang_main_menu['logout_lnk'] . " [" . USER_NAME . "]",
        '{HOME}' => $lang_list_categories['home'],
        );

Unfortunately it yields a blank zero size button, so the peices aren't doing what I think they are doing.  What would have been the correct way to do this?

Thanks Joachim, but I was hoping to leverage the fact that "Home" has already been translated.

If I have to have users of my theme edit thier own language file, I might as well just leave it alone, and let them edit it in the theme.php.

Thanks anyway, this is so minor I don't even think I'm going to persue it anymore.
