Some messages have a translate option open with the message
Other messages doen't and the translate option at the bottom of the message is gone
Do you have any URLs or screenshots showing where this is happening, John?
I don't recall seeing the issue.
Translation does not pop up in a window on the upper right, and no translate option at the bottom
Win10 + Chrome
ADDED - I recently installed the CSS to change the look of the forums
So I wonder if that is why translate is not showing for me?
Same here. I see Translate.
I just checked enabling and disabling that Compact CSS and it definitely hides Translate.
With Compact CSS
Without Compact CSS
In your screen shot with CSS the translate icon is still there but the word Translate is missing.
Oh well... Google translate works
If you have the compact css installed, it hides the label "Translate" but the icon is still there. I've replied to the Back Room New Forum Issue Part 2 thread with a fix, that hopefully the person who created it will fix. I'm not sure if the script auto-updates or if you need to manually refresh it after a change is made.
If you're comfortable with css you can edit the custom css yourself.
In mine, the last style was '.translate-button__text'. This needs to be changed to '.ForumPage .translate-button__text'.
This hides the label on the main forum page, but displays it in the discussion pages.
I updated the Custom CSS so now the "T" of "Translate" shows on the main page and this is clickable to get the translation functionality...
