English-language version of Luistxo Fernandez's blog

New all-CSS version for mutilingual Coreblog

Luistxo Fernandez 2004/06/30 13:25

I've produced a new localised version of Coreblog, importable as a .zexp and installable as a skin. It's based in Localizer, a nice Zope product

I am afraid that this doesn't solve the problems that a Chinese user reported... but, at least, with latin alphabet based western european languages, it runs nicely.

The novelties of this version are:

  • tested with Coreblog 0.72b
  • the design has been merged with the CSS version produced by Jeff Hicks

Totally localised Spanish and Basque .zexp's available here.

and the demos to see the output:

also a demo of a trilingual interface:

There are also instructions to produce versions in other languages.

This new version of Coreblog is been already used successfully at this site. is a local Basque asso. of Internet users, and we've just re-arranged our site both as

  • a coreblog by itself
  • a community of Basque blogs, all of them Coreblogs in turn, localised in Basque and with easily changeable CSS skins.

In addition to Coreblog, there are also a couple of simple page-editing tools so bloggers can have some static-looking pages as in this example

Tim Foster's blog at Sun Microsystems: Thoughts on language, translation and tools

Luistxo Fernandez 2004/06/15 13:05

Sharing translation resources, tm tools... interesting topics. A search at led me to this blog, written by Tim Foster at Sun. Now he's subscribed at my account at Bloglines (although the code of the RSS feed looks odd at Bloglines, there must be some error). I suppose the Tumatxa project (sharing translation memories on the web) could be of interest for this guy. But obviously, at our a small Basque company we may be working on the same field, but we're certainly on a very different scale.

Trackback URLs not to be clicked

moblog 2004/06/10 15:22

A friend posts in a list that he would like Googlebot not to click on the trackback URL's offered by his blog. I think that TB Url's are not to be clicked, neither by humans nor by robots. They're just to be copied by bloggers to paste them into their own posts. In this Coreblog of mine I touched the templates to let the TBping URL appear in a "text input" field. I feel like it's easier to copy a line of text when it's in an input field like that.
