Simple Admin Language Change

Description

Have you ever struggled with setting up a theme or plugin because of bad localisation? Not corresponding to the manual or documentation? Googling for How to’s but your web has different locale and you don’t want to switch between them?

This simple and lightweight plugin allows you to set locale for admin area only (except General Options page) and keep it separate from your page locale. Simple and easy. Automatically set to English, but you can change it in the General Options page settings.

Applies only to administrator accounts.

Thank You so much Karolina for creating this super useful plugin. For Me it's working perfectly 100 % in every situation. Please, do not be discouraged by ungrateful & dummy users like "@mysterious87" that are posting unfair reviews only because the plugin doesn't work with their buggy "OceanWP" theme. This theme is Not reliable anymore, so it's normal to have the type of issues described by "@mysterious87". I'm using WordPress 5.3.2 and the "Suki" theme. Thank You!!!

I just installed the plug-in on my WP 5.3.1, it seems to be working just fine. The admin panel got changed to English as soon as I activated the plug-in. I don't see an option to revert this though, deactivating it might be the only way. Cheers, UPDATE (21-12-2019): I had an issue with the theme customization page, it wasn't loading and kept giving me a blank page, once I started deactivating the plug-ins, after a long trouble-shooting process, everything went back to normal when I deactivated this plug-in! Theme used: OceanWP. Cheers,

Just what I was looking for. My site is in RTL language and my control panel is now in English.

Great plugin, but it's not compatible with WPbakery Page Builder 🙁 When the plugin is activated, the PB buttons for editing are not visible. The frontend editor works from the page/post list, but the backend editor is alltogether disabled.
