Hi. Is it possible to change the "Like" button text so it is another language. In fact, have the whole Facebook like and comment localized for another language.
Thanks.

Hi

It's possible: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/internationalization/

The above link gives the details for which locale to use. At the moment you need to do this manually but...here are the steps (make sure you take care when editing social gallery)

1.) go to the plugin editor and choose social gallery.
2.) ctrl + f to find a string and look for "connect.facebook.net" this will return a line with //connect.facebook.net/en_GB/all.js

3.) to change this to be spanish, you'd edit it to be : //connect.facebook.net/es_LA/all.js other details are on the facebook link above.

4.) make sure you change all the places of the //connect.facebook.net and make sure you don't break anything else.

Cheers

I don't really know if this is actually possible since it's a Facebook related issue and not something that has to do with Social Gallery. You may check out Facebook help in this case.

Did we post at the same time?? I think the above solves it :) ?? I've not tested fully though - let me know.
