Frequently Asked Questions
Arabic Expressions don't parse the keywords in some place my Theme/Plugin
Arabic Expressions are supported in most places where user defined text is displayed. However, there may be places in a plugin or theme that are not supported by Arabic Expressions.
In these cases, just apply the filter
arabic_expressions_replace to the text that should display Arabic Expressions.
For example, you would change the following PHP code:
<?php echo get_the_author_meta( 'description' ); ?>
to this code:
<?php echo apply_filters('arabic_expressions_replace', get_the_author_meta( 'description' )); ?>
I have a problem with capital letter expressions, it doesn't work
You should look in the source code of your page if the
DOCTYPE is correct. It is due to the use of capital letters in our CSS class names; if your
DOCTYPE is incorrect, all browser behave like case-insensitive when using CSS class. See : http://stackoverflow.com/a/28556035/1673761
