Embedding videos

Hi, I'm a relative newbie to S9y - I seem to have jumped-in at the deep-end with the multilingual stuff... Anyway, another thing that I'm not sure about is how to embed videos into my pages. I've installed the podcasting plugin, but I'm not sure it's what I need. What I'd *like* to do : (BTW my deve...

Re: Multilingual posts

Hi Garvin, thanks for taking time to reply. The language setting of my browser is a good lead : it's french, by default... I'll have to rethink my development PC setup and see if I can't have a machine with *just* english on it. I'll try it over the weekend. For your 'workaround' I had started worki...

Re: Multilingual posts

Well, sorry - no documentation yet. The plain fact is this plugin IS NOT RELIABLE FOR ME . I'm *VERY* angry at the moment because I'm wasting time correcting things instead of doing real work. I'll try and describe what's happening. --- I'm english, living in France. I leave my choice of language on...

Re: Multilingual posts

OK, I'll work on that in // with getting my blog working.
Er, there's still one thing I haven't got to grips with : it's the language choices that are presented next to each post. I seem to remember seeing another post about that, I'll try to find it.
Thanks,
Glenn

Re: Can't change global language

Thanks for the extra insight. I'm still not sure that it's *just* a cookie, though. Yes, I've now seen that the language selection on my blog page (even if I'm not logged-on as anybody, *AND* I've cleared all history and cookies) is what 'forces' the language selection for the admin frontpage. @Garv...

Re: Can't change global language

Very sorry to say, but the problem HASN'T gone away - it's come back. Why am I messing about changing languages? you ask. Well, it was to be able to write a tutorial about the multilingual plugin and how not to loose your work... Ian, you mentioned cookies : can you explain a bit more? Otherwise cou...

OK, please help by answering this last question : what format should I use to submit a tutorial (in english), and where should I send it ? I think I've cracked most of the issues.

Re: Can't change global language

..., if not, it could be a cookie problem. Check this. Is that a current S9y version? Thanks, Ian. Yes it's V1.7.8. I cleared all cookies and history, for the nth time, and I have just seen that my admin page is back to French as requested. So it looks like this problem is solved - at least it's go...

Re: Can't change global language

Hi Ian,
Yes, I've seen that there are the two options. It's the global one that is 'stuck' - I change it to french, save the settings and get the green 'OK' tick mark, but the menu entry stays stuck at english...

Can't change global language

Hi, As a side-effect of all the problems I've been having with multi-language ( http://board.s9y.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=19818 ), and having discovered the 'draft trap'* ( http://board.s9y.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16617&hilit=cant+change+blog+language ) I now find that I can't change the global langu...

Multilingual posts

Hello all. I'm new to Serendipity and I'm trying to get to grips with the multilingual functions. Has anyone written a tutorial or something similar to show how to create multilingual posts? I have installed the multilingual plugin, and I see that I can have translated titles, such as {{!en}}English...
