FAQ

Some of the buttons are not translated into my language. How can I fix this?

WordPress seems to cache the translation files and might not update them correctly during a plugin update. Open the [wp-content\languages\plugins\] folder of your WordPress installation and delete the following files:

  • rc-flight-manager-de_DE.po
  • rc-flight-manager-de_DE.mo

The new tranlation files should be loaded on the next refresh of the page.
