In addition,  there is an other hard problem, Chinese Search.
We have changed some codes, but still not work. My partners they are all good at Perl, but Chinese search is difficult. We've given it up, now using Google Site search instead of it. We also noticed Slashdot recently changed to use Google Site Search too.

Sorry for my English.

There are some changes, But we haven't sorted them out. Also the Chinese theme hasn't been finished yet.
We've planed to release a UTF-8 Chinese Version of Slash. Lots of things to do, except above mentioned, there are some documentations such as Chinese install guide, Chinese FAQ, etc.
When we are done these, we will post the code changes and other stuff to this list and

Please give us some time.

No, it hasn't been on our agenda, unfortunately.  I'm very
interested in incorporating your changes back into our code if it
can be done without turning things upside down for us.  If so,
that might make future upgrades for you go more smoothly.

Please do let us know (on this mailing list, if you like).  And
congratulations on getting it all working.

Did you by chance attempt to make use of the "language" field within the templates?



I'm also curious as to how you handled the form submission buttons. Some of them, if memory serves, are hard-coded-ops.

Congrats on the work!
