Standard text and languages

la.plume micro CMS displays text in various places such as Leave a comment, Submit, Search Results and many others. They are built in but can be edited in /inc/languages/en.php or the other available language options (currently German, French and Spanish). Editing those files must be done carefully to preserve the PHP syntax and use only HTML codes for foreign characters or an error will result. Make sure to keep within the speech marks.

The language is selected on the setup page. This sets HTML language attribute for the selected language. If French, German or Spanish are selected, the default texts—standard headings, messages, buttons etc will be in that language.

To display correctly, characters in web pages should be available to the browser, normally from a system font installed on the user's computer or an external font, for example a Google web font.

la.plume micro CMS has not been tested nor can be guaranteed to work across all the languages that exist.


(1) Certain non-Latin (or Latin Extended) characters cannot be used in web page addresses (URLs). The URLs are created from the page title; so is the normal navigation menu text. But you can display non-Latin characters in the navigation menu by adding them in [square brackets] - see navigation menu anchor text »

(2) The search function does not always find 'international' characters because the search word or phrase is passed through the URL of the search page and again, there are limitations on characters used in URLs. The search function does not work for all characters.

(3) Admin is mostly configured in the English language but non-English characters can be entered for non-English publication in the main content box (see text test). The default encoding is UTF-8.
