Any simple way to check that the rtl.css is there and make the theme include it? As I am coding a translation plugin with rtl support.

I understand it will, but I want to force it to believe that it is set to RTL, take a look at my plugin site to understand why (mainly language switch)

I’ll explain what I need as well, and I think what offer refers to – if one wants to build a multilingual blog, where some of the pages are going RTL and some LTR, what are the appropriate “buttons to press” to override this, so whatever calls “get_bloginfo( ‘text_direction’ )” may get a different answer based on some logic running at the theme level.

Don’t see such a global, also don’t see any such usage in wpml
please enlighten me

I guess you know the microsoft/ibm joke with the plane
anyhow – did you mean?
$wp_locale->text_direction = 'rtl';

Thanks for your help; the latest transposh plugin (0.6.1) now supports this feature.

I must say that Indeed the Transposh plugin for WordPress does a great job ‘converting’ almost any theme into a Hebrew/RTL version, plus the convenience of auto translation with the great ability to correct those translated pages after the initial google translate.
Transposh is a must for anyone that need a quick multilingual wordpress website.

Sorry, but there’s no buil-in support for that. there are one or two plugins out there that I was never able to wrangle well. for the two blogs I’ve built that have the ocassional odd directionality (one is LTR with occasional RTL, the other default RTL with occasional LTR), I used a category (though you can use a tag) that denotes that the post is of a different directionality, then there will be a php condition in the theme code to set the directionality of the post container based on that metadata. it’s somewhat of an ugly hack, but it works well. it won’t translate your language, of course. the remark boxes and their titles of “Name”, “Mail”, “Url” will still be in the main language unless you add more switches, and the code becomes ugly.

Is this also available as test somewhere, with examples one can cut and paste?
