Internationalize WordCamp Dashboard Widgets plugin

Reported by: iandunn's profile iandunn Owned by: iandunn's profile iandunn
Milestone: Priority: low
Component: WordCamp Site & Plugins Keywords: good-first-bug has-patch


The WordCamp Dashboard Widgets plugin needs to be internationalized.

The escaping translation functions (esc_html__(), esc_attr_e(), etc) should be used instead of their non-escaping counterparts.

Hi @iandunn

I've submitted patch 2143.patch

@chandrapatel Thanks for the patch! There are a few instances where the translation strings are not being escaped, probably because they contain HTML. In these cases, the strings should still be sanitized with wp_kses(). Something like this:

    __( 'Please send us <a href="%s">the "about" text and banner image</a> for your page.', 'wordcamporg' ),
    array( 'a' => array( 'href' => true ) )

@chandrapatel Thanks, and nice work!

A couple of suggestions for your next patch:

  • For PHP files, your indents should be with tab characters rather than spaces.
  • Keep the patch focused on the ticket issue. This patch had a couple of miscellaneous changes to comment punctuation and additional commas on array items. These aren't bad, but they distract from the important changes in the patch, so it's best to include them separately.
