Yes, I'm using SMF 1.1.11, I forgot to mention that, sorry
Automatic installation didn't succeed so I try manually. I made gtflags  directory (with images of flags inside) in web/smf_forum/themes/default/images
and than I change Display.template.php like this:

<td width="13%"> ', $txt[29], '</td>
            <td valign="middle" width="85%" style="padding-left: 6px;" id="top_subject">
            <!-- Google Translator Flags by Roco -->
               <div style="float:right; margin:2px 1px; display:inline; vertical-align:middle; zoom:1;" charset="utf-8">
                  <a href=";sl=' [nonactive];, $txt['lang_dictionary'], '&amp;tl=en&amp;u=', $scripturl, '?topic=', $context['current_topic'], '.0.html" title="Translate into English [EN]" target="_blank"><img src="', $settings['default_theme_url'], '/images/gtflags/us.png" alt="[EN]" style="border:none;" /></a>
                  <a href=";sl=' [nonactive];, $txt['lang_dictionary'], '&amp;tl=es&amp;u=', $scripturl, '?topic=', $context['current_topic'], '.0.html" title="Traducción al espanol [ES]" target="_blank"><img src="', $settings['default_theme_url'], '/images/gtflags/es.png" alt="[ES]" style="border:none;" /></a>
                  <a href=";sl=' [nonactive];, $txt['lang_dictionary'], '&amp;tl=it&amp;u=', $scripturl, '?topic=', $context['current_topic'], '.0.html" title="Tradurre in italiano [IT]" target="_blank"><img src="', $settings['default_theme_url'], '/images/gtflags/it.png" alt="[IT]" style="border:none;" /></a>
                  <a href=";sl=' [nonactive];, $txt['lang_dictionary'], '&amp;tl=de&amp;u=', $scripturl, '?topic=', $context['current_topic'], '.0.html" title="Ins Deutsche übersetzen [DE]" target="_blank"><img src="', $settings['default_theme_url'], '/images/gtflags/de.png" alt="[DE]" style="border:none;" /></a>
                  <a href=";sl=' [nonactive];, $txt['lang_dictionary'], '&amp;tl=fr&amp;u=', $scripturl, '?topic=', $context['current_topic'], '.0.html" title="Traduire en français [FR]" target="_blank"><img src="', $settings['default_theme_url'], '/images/gtflags/fr.png" alt="[FR]" style="border:none;" /></a>
                  <a href=";sl=' [nonactive];, $txt['lang_dictionary'], '&amp;tl=ru&amp;u=', $scripturl, '?topic=', $context['current_topic'], '.0.html" title="ruski [RU]" target="_blank"><img src="', $settings['default_theme_url'], '/images/gtflags/ru.png" alt="[RU]" style="border:none;" /></a>

                  ', $txt[118], ': ', $context['subject'], ' &nbsp;(', $txt[641], ' ', $context['num_views'], ' ', $txt[642], ')
   if (!empty($settings['display_who_viewing']))

So I did put your modification inside td tag like you sad but it still doesn't work.
What I did wrong now?
Thank you for your previous fast reply.


Now I see these "nonactive' notifications for the links to google translator. Why is that?


Well, this is how things are at the moment:
I have translator flags on the topics, but I do not have them at home page and at forum pages.


Today my friend installed it on his site and it works perfectly-
I installed it on my site which is similar and I have a small problem.
When a flag is clicked the Google Translate page opens in the new language but at the Login Page not at the topic page page.
Can you help?


OK - solved
Allow guests to browse the forum

QuoteAnyway, nice mod.

Thank You :)

btw I wanted to create something simple that does not interfere too much in the mechanisms of the SMF and its DB...
I know what You mean. I think is posible integration of Google Translate API in to SMF like VB.
I reflected on this path, but I chose a simpler solution, because I respect people's privacy,
and this can not be ensured by using the Google API
I promise that I think about this in the near future, ok? ;)

Yours :)


Thanks ^^


I installed this but when I click on the flag to translate it opens a new browser window and doesn't display the topic but translates and presents a new login page.
smf 2.0.18


In RC3 is there anything in Admin Panel  :-\


Awesome MOD roco - manual install on RC4 to tailor the languages I wanted and works a dream

Thank you
What type of washing machine is September?

An autumnatic. :)


If it helps anyone then I can advise that this mod works fine in 2.0 Gold.

It doesn't install into the Core theme though. That theme requires a manual install and an amendment of line 166. Otherwise all works good.

Tried it on several themes now with no probs.  ;)
