Forum Title and Description

Forum title is displayed on forum home page. It also appears in forum SEO title and meta data. Forum description is used in forum SEO information.

Dashboard Menu Position

Use greater than 5 – below Posts, 10 – below Media, 15 – below Links, 20 – below Pages, 25 – below comments, 60 – below first separator, 65 – below Plugins, 70 – below Users, 75 – below Tools, 80 – below Settings, 100 – below second separator.

XML Based Language

This option is only related to XML language files. This is not the general language changing option. You should upload a translation XML file to have a new language option in this drop-down. If you are using PO/MO translation files you should change WordPress Language in Dashboard > Settings admin page in order to load wpForo with according translation.

wpForo Forum language is based on WordPress language set in Dashboard > Settings > General admin page. You should only use the XML Language selector if you’ve created different language XML’s and uploaded in wpForo phrase system.

If you changed WP language wpForo already loaded on that language. You can see buttons and other parts (user interface) are already in your website language. If some phrase is not translated you should edit your website current language translation file (PO/MO) in /wpforo/wpf-languages/ directory and complete the translation.
