Description

Withing the old wordpress.com translation system it was very easy to link to a specific string within the system by copying the url from the browser address bar. In this way you could e.g. discuss about it within the forums or ask the wordpress.com staff about a particular string by pointing to the URL.

Translators like myself sometimes have difficulties to figure out the context in which the string is used or where it belongs to. So we have to ask the support. For this we need some kind of link to point the support guys|girls to the right spot.

I thought about some kind of permalink for every string which can be found within the details screen, if this is possible.

I too think this is a needed improvement.

This is a really long URL. How about a URL-Shortener?

comment:4 waclawjacek2 years ago

I don't think it's necessary, and maybe if GlotPress supports plugins, we should make a plugin that does the shortening instead of implementing it right into the core?

Maybe it is just a WordPress.com specific problem, but the long permalinks with all the brackets [ and ] are all broken on WP.com-Forums, because the brackets ([ and ]) are filtered out. (See this entry for example: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/space-at-the-end-of-strings) Maybe this is more a bbpress-bug, but it can be solved if GlotPress would provide a shortener (or another permalink structure without [ and ]).
You even can't use [ / &#093 to mask the brackets ...

I agree with nbachiyski. Also currently GlotPress isn't really build so show a specific string.

The link problem is fixed in bbpress. And the original bug report is fixed as there is a permalink for each string. So this is fixed and not wontfix, I think.

Completely missed that one. That said that link is a bit broken. See #274.
