Loading a language file in the plugin initialization
You should have already followed the Making admin page code ready for translation and Translating text strings using Poedit recipes to have the proper files required for this recipe. Alternatively, you can get the resulting code (the
ch12/ch12-hello-world/ch12-hello-world-v3.php file and the
ch12/ch12-hello-world/languages folder) for these recipes from the book's GitHub page. You should rename the file
ch12-hello-world.php and copy the
languages folder next to the renamed file before starting the recipe.
How to do it...
- Navigate to the
ch12-hello-worldfolder of the WordPress plugin directory...
