The weather is getting nicer and nicer. As a result, annoying cyclists, such as myself, started their summer-long takeover of the streets of Budapest, wrecking havoc in traffic. I say let them have it as long as we can continue working on Easyling. This month’s updates didn’t add any new flashy features but included tons of fixes and improvements to existing features. The main highlight is that it is now possible to upload SVG files as resource translation just like it is possible with PNGs or JPEGs. See the details after the jump.
Scalable Vector Graphics files are a tricky bunch. It’s very easy to mistake them as images, but the underlying structure is XML-based. As a result, it wasn’t possible to treat them as images on the Dashboard. You couldn’t upload one as a replacement. We had the hacky workaround of adding the translation as a content override (it’s just XML, so you can just enter the source code) then using link replacement to localise the SVG. With this month’s update, it is now possible to just upload SVG files on the Resources section as if it was an image file.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to apologise to the person who had a ticket regarding this open with us. We are sorry this took this long.
This way, even projects published via the proxy or using our basic publishing features can leverage a localised site search - after some coding.
This may have been the first time I managed to spell miscellaneous for the first time without looking it up. But it’s not the first time we have this section for the smaller fixes we added this month. See them below.
