Trouble with Language Strings in CB Profile Layouts

3 months 1 week ago #336009 by 4creator
Hello,

Is there a way to use language strings (set in Plugin Management) in Profile Value Layout, etc.?

For example, I am currently entering the following in the layout field:
[cb:if cb_officialsite!=""]<a href="[value]" target="_blank" title="Official Website"><i class="fas fa-house-user"></i></a>[/cb:if]

I wanted to change the display to match the site language by changing title="Official Website" to title="CB_OFFICIAL_SITE". However, this did not work as expected, and 'CB_OFFICIAL_SITE' is output exactly as is.

Thanks

Did you try with square brackets, like this ?:
title="[CB_OFFICIAL_SITE]"

Hi beat, I hadn't tried about title="[CB_OFFICIAL_SITE]" so I just did. The result was that [CB_OFFICIAL_SITE] was output as is.

You can substitute in language strings using the below usage.

[cb:translate key="LANGUAGE_KEY" default="LANGUAGE_STRING_FALLBACK" /]

So for example you'd have the following.

[cb:translate key="CB_OFFICIAL_SITE" /]

You'd then use that as follows.
title="[cb:translate key="CB_OFFICIAL_SITE" /]"

See the below substitution tutorial for further usage information.

Thank you so much, krileon!!
My issue was solved.

Actually, I used Community Builder back in the Joomla 1.5 days. I am again using Community Builder and marveling at the wonderful evolution of the product. Thank you for creating a great system.
