All In One Favicon

Description

All In One Favicon adds favicons to your site and your admin pages.
You can either use favicons you already uploaded or use the builtin upload mechanism to upload a favicon to your WordPress installation.
All three favicon types are supported – .ico, .png and .gif (may be animated)
Also, Apple Touch Icons are supported.

Localization

Is your native language missing?
Translating the plugin is easy if you understand english and are fluent in another language.
I described in the FAQ how the translation works.

Frequently asked questions

  • Why is All In One Favicon not available in my language?

I speak German and English fluently, but unfortunately no other language well enough to do a translation.

Would you like to help? Translating the plugin is easy if you understand English and are fluent in another language.

  • How do I translate All In One Favicon?

Take a look at the WordPress site and identify your langyage code:
http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_in_Your_Language

e.g. the language code for German is “de_DE”.

Step 1) download POEdit (http://www.poedit.net/)

Step 2) download All In One Favicon (from your FTP or from http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/all-in-one-favicon/)

Step 3) copy the file localization/aio-favicon-en_EN.po and rename it. (in this case aio-favicon-de_DE.po)

Step 4) open the file with POEdit.

Step 5) translate all strings. Things like “{total}” or “%1$s” mean that a value will be inserted later.

Step 5a) The string that says “English translation by Arne …”, this is where you put your name, website (or email) and your language in. ;-)

Step 5b) (optional) Go to POEdit -> Catalog -> Settings and enter your name, email, language code etc

Step 6) Save the file. Now you will see two files, aio-favicon-de_DE.po and aio-favicon-de_DE.mo.

Step 7) Upload your files to your FTP server into the All In One Favicon directory (usually /wp-content/plugins/all-in-one-favicon/)

Step 8 ) When you are sure that all translations are working correctly, send the po-file to me and I will put it into the next All In One Favicon version.
