Good news for our (many!) German friends!
Christian, also known as tafkas, has managed to finish a
complete translation for FP-0.703-alpha.
Awesome! Many many kudos to tafkas, who is also largely spreading the FlatPress word :D
Get the German translation here
In the meantime tafkas (isn’t he a good guy?) also helped me with the “can’t setup” thingie that some of you had.
Open up your defaults.php and change this line
define('BLOG_BASEURL', 'http://'.$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME']. (($_SERVER['SERVER_PORT']!=80)? ':' . $_SERVER['SERVER_PORT'] : '') . BLOG_ROOT);
define('BLOG_BASEURL', 'http://'.$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . BLOG_ROOT);
What’s changed ? This way you’re not using anymore SERVER_NAME but HTTP_HOST; server name is more reliable than http host, which relies on the info you send through your browser to tell PHP what’s your own webserver hostname (what a mess, huh?).
Well I need a that info to be correct so that I can generate correct links for the blog and especially have valid form POST handlers.
Well, the problem is that there’s no HTTP_HOST in IIS, so… I think I’ll have to re-add a step in the installer; I’ll see.
Another thing I’ve read is about people who can’t install and that maybe were offended by the FP installer :P
Guys, seriously, what’s so bad about reading the instructions?
It clearly says that you have to click finish to BEGIN :D
Sorry for the joke, it was intended as a measure to prevent people from just blindly clicking next/next/next in the first versions, as you really needed to read. At the moment it wouldn’t be needed anymore, but I find it funny; just think of this: personally sometimes I click the wrong button myself :D this just shows how little we care about things we’re supposed to care about :P
If I’ll have to add this hostname thing you should really pay attention when you install, so do I really have to remove it? :( It’s so funny, LOL
The point is: the more people install it successfully (having read the instructions) the less will be reporting the results of an unsuccessful installation as bugs :)
PS: the exam went well :D
 I was sayng “the ‘FP’ word” but it would have sounded like a dirty thing, LOL
