  • silverstripe/framework ~4

  1. run composer require innovatif/i19n-editor "~1" to install module
  2. run dev/build?flush=1

For more see Configuration section.


Translating themes folder

Silverstripe can treat folders as module if folder contains _config.php. You need to create empty config file inside /themes folder in order for text translator to be able to scan your templates. Create empty file: <your_project>/themes/_config.php Run ?flush=1

Default preselected modules

By default app and themes folder are pre-selected in scan for new translations popup. You can modify the list with:

    - app
    - themes

Multi-server environment

Clear cache action clears cache on server side. You need additional controls on multi-server environment so all servers are notified to clear cache on their SS instance too.

You should set up a Cron job on every server (back-end and front-end servers) to executes task /dev/tasks/i19nClearCacheTask on every X minutes.

Enable setting in CMS

  enable_clear_cache_task: true

Clear cache action now creates object in database which will tell all servers to clear cache when Cron job runs.
