Woo Commerce Snippets

Oct 19, 2018

8月份因為時間緊迫,為了做這頁WooCommerce捐款,不懂程式,前後請了一位印度工程師幫我做弊寫了四次的程式,共花了US$90。現在要解碼了,還真痛苦,希望能看得懂,別再花錢了。

1- Remove Product Image 用CSS就好了:

Appearance > Customize >

.woocommerce-product-gallery {
display:none;
}

2- Change Button Color

Appearance > Customize > Color > Woo Commerce

3- Change Text-Name Your Price/Add to Cart

  • WooCommerce > Settings > Name Your Price

Change the following:

  • Minimum Price Text
  • Name Your Price Text
  • Add to Cart Button Text for Single Product

4-Change Add to Cart Text

1
2
3

5
add_filter('single_add_to_cart_text', 'woo_custom_cart_button_text');
  
function woo_custom_cart_button_text() {
    return __('Donate Now', 'woocommerce');
}

This snippet didn’t work on me.

Multilingual Plugin – WPML

Multilingual Plugin - WPML

October 19, 2018

文化節網站時,常常因為翻譯頁出現問題,本可以在15-20分鐘完成一頁卻因為翻譯plugin多花的時間,真是欲哭無淚呀!今天要做WACT網站-捐款頁時,又發現法文翻譯頁也出現同樣問題,不該再拖延找出問題的根源了。(哭)

這些問題,可能是Elementor還沒和WPML完全相容,也可能是我沒跟上WPML的更新技術,做文化節網站時是沒時間多研究的,現在把WPML相關資訊收集在這,希望可以解決問題。

Translating Images with Media Translation

10/19 WPML TicketAfter updating from WPML Multilingual CMS 3.9.4 to 4.0.7, the images on the translated French page won’t show, but you can still see the images on the backend. Please see attached 3 screen shots.

WPML Ticket - Images shown on backend
Images shown on the backend – translated page
WPML Ticket - Images not shown on frontend - translated page
Images not shown on frontend – translated page
Images shown on the original page

10/22 WPML Reply

Are you using the WPML Media Translator?

We’ve released a new version of WPML and extensions. Please update all to the lastest versions. You can download here: https://wpml.org/account/downloads/

After that, please go to WPML > Settings > Post Types Translation and check if the “Media (attachment)” post type is set as “Translatable – only show translated items”. Then scroll down to Media Translation apply the settings for the future media and run the scan for the existing content.

10/22 Steps:

When you need to show images with content that you translated using WPML’s Translation Management, you should never edit that content manually using the WordPress “post editor.” If you do, your edits will be lost the next time you update this content using Translation Management.

有時真是蠻挫折的,一整早上找一個以前不曾是問題的問題答案,還是找不到,只好再寄一次求救信。10/22 12:27pm

The Difference Between GMT and UTC

The Difference Between GMT and UTC

October 15, 2018

https://www.timeanddate.com/time/gmt-utc-time.html

The Difference Between GMT and UTC

Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is often interchanged or confused with Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). But GMT is a time zone and UTC is a time standard.

Although GMT and UTC share the same current time in practice, there is a basic difference between the two:

  • GMT is a time zone officially used in some European and African countries. The time can be displayed using both the 24-hour format (0 – 24) or the 12-hour format (1 – 12 am/pm).
  • UTC is not a time zone, but a time standard that is the basis for civil time and time zones worldwide. This means that no country or territory officially uses UTC as a local time.

UTC, GMT and Daylight Saving Time

Neither UTC nor GMT ever change for Daylight Saving Time (DST). However, some of the countries that use GMT switch to different time zones during their DST period.

For example, the United Kingdom is not on GMT all year, it uses British Summer Time (BST), which is one hour ahead of GMT, during the summer months.
