    I’m new to WordPress and just installed Graphene. How do I get the theme to be rtl without changing admin language?



    Syahir Hakim



    Just change the WordPress language to the RTL language (I assume Arabic?), and install the Admin in English plugin by Nikolay Bachiyski to keep the admin panel in English.



    Thanks, Syahir. Yes, it is in Arabic.

    Is there an Arabic translation for the theme? Also Arabic fonts look very small in the navigation bar. How can I make them larger?

    btw the theme is very user friendly…thank you so much!

    Nope, I have just added full RTL support for the theme in the last update, so there is no RTL languages translation yet.

    Perhaps you could make one for Arabic? 😀



    I would but I don’t know how.

    I still need help with small fonts in the nav bar, please.

    Implement a child theme, and then add the following CSS code to the child theme’s style.css file:

    #menu li a, #menu li a:visited{

    Obviously, change the font size to whatever size that you want.

    There’s instructions on how to translate the theme here.



    Thank you so much!

    When I complete customizing and translation, I’ll let you know.

    (unless someone beats me to it 🙂

    Great! I’m looking forward to it!

    PS: I received the theme’s first RTL language translation yesterday, which is the Persian language (fa_IR) 😀



    Hi again,

    I translated the front end terms of Graphene and saved it as a .mo and .po file. I uploaded both files in the language file but the translations aren’t appearing.

    Sorry I’m new at all this. Not sure what to do.

    I’ve made a video tutorial on how to use languages other than English with your WordPress installation here: http://www.khairul-syahir.com/topics/tutorial/2011/using-other-languages-with-wordpress.html
