Getting the DNN Telerik Editor working in UK English

It seems there is a problem with non en-US installation of the Telerik RadEditor on DNN.

There is a problem that has been lodged but an official fix is not yet out I shall explain how I managed to get it working for my cusotmers DNN5.4.2 UK English website:

  • Login to the back end server
  • Navigate to ~ProvidersHtmlEditorProvidersTelerikApp_LocalResources
  • Take a copy of all the .resx file in this directory
  • Rename all the “Copy of XYZ.resx” files to be “XYZ.en-gb.resx”
  • Navigate to ~ProvidersHtmlEditorProvidersTelerikDialogsApp_LocalResources
  • Take a copy of “SaveTemplate.resx” and rename it to SaveTemplate.resx”
  • Restart the site from the Host menu

Now to fix the problems with the Telerik file manager….

You work.. for Google

You’ve probably already done a fair bit of work for Google.  If you’ve used reCaptcha (on sites like Twitter, Facebook and CheckMyRoute then you have worked for Google already.  reCaptcha is a device used by websites to prove you’re human, and not a ‘bot’ (a program which goes around the internet signing up for things or accessing websites and doing evil things).  reCaptcha gives you two words to read.  One that it knows the answer to, the other it doesn’t, or it’s a bit confused with.  The word it knows the answer to proves yourself to be human to reCaptcha.  The other is a ‘vote’ – a word that’s been given to several internet users to cast their opinion over.  If you and a few other users give the same answer, you’ve helped Google by finally getting that word recognised.  Google needs humans to read these words that computers can’t, so instead of employing someone in California, it uses you.

It’s not a bad thing.  After all, Google is scanning and making searchable millions of books.  And you’re doing your bit by inadvertantly working for Google getting them published on the web.
