RTL support?

Permalink
Is there a RTL solution for languages such as Hebrew or Arabic? (entire page layout, text editor, text areas etc..)

Thanks

Nobody has ever replied to this.
So I will just follow-up

I guess nobody in the c5 forum ever tried it.
And nobody in the forum has time or capacity to try it.
So we are waiting for any volunteers to start working on it.

Like my case, nobody was making a progress to have a Japanese version out there, so I decided to jump in to make a Japanese version.

It's an open source community. Somebody needs to volunteer their time.

I saw that message too. I'd like to see RTL support but I never had a project where I needed RTL and I don't have any experience with RTL at all...

Worked on a few Chinese projects but without having RTL experience it's difficult to help...

Are there some Arabic php experts out there?

I have been trying to configure the custom option in the "content toolbars" section to provide the direction buttons in the Tinymce editor, but alas to no avail. Can anyone post the settings that will allow me to do this please.

Thank you

I've already done some work. I can provide the CSS and IMAGES for RTL.
Not fully done yet, but you can follow these posts:

and the translation to Arabic:

We need to be more specific about the type of support for RTL needed.
I've created almost 5 RTL sites (have a look at my profile), with fully Arabic interface, so far and all are working just fine.
What is needed mostly is to setup a stylesheet to swtich the interface or maybe just the Areas where content needs to be RTL.
If there is a real need for a document or more info please let me know, and I'll try create a more detailed topic.

Just add RTL under the body tag or wherever you need it show.

<div class="wrapper" style="direction:rtl"></div>

Hi,

I think what he meant is a whole RTL of the theme. This is done by changing the css style for example if the original is

float: left
margin-right: 50px
margin-left: 20px

TO RTL it becomes

float: right
margin-left: 50px
mergin-right: 20px

Floats don’t make any difference. You have a left sidebar and a right sidebar, both can float left or right for mobile view, depending on design.

Styling ‘direction:rtl’ gives ‘content’ RTL flow regardless of layout or areas.

Also with Foundation6 you can set the text editor to flow typing RTL.
