Translating a ClassicPress plugin with GlotPress: Export translations

ClassicPress PluginsThis post is part of the sub-series on Translating a ClassicPress plugin with GlotPress which is part of the Translating a ClassicPress plugin with GlotPress series.

Once you have translation sets created for your plugins or themes, you will, at some point, need to download them. You can do this one at a time or in bulk depending on why you’re downloading them; if downloading to make a new version package, you can do the bulk download, or a user can do a single download to get a new translation which isn’t part of the current released package.

To download a single translation set, open the project, drill into the required translation set and scroll to the bottom of the page. Click the Export button to download the translation set:

Download single translation set

Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP October 2019 Release: eConnect prerequisites

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis post is part of the Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP October 2019 Release series where I am going hands on with the new version of Microsoft Dynamics GP. One of the main integration tools used with Microsoft Dynamics GP is eConnect; however, before eConnect can be installed, there are two prerequisites which need to be installed.

I’ve posted about these prerequisites before, so I’ll link back to the original posts; the version of Windows Server may have changed, but the process is the same.

The first prerequisite, is to set the service account as a local administrator on the server. Without doing this, the eConnect services will not start correctly.

Secondly, you need to install the MSMQ Triggers Windows feature. Without this, the Incomging/Outgoing eConnect queues cannot be installed.

Once these two prerequisites are met, you’ll be ready to install eConnect on the server.
