Russian translation of the Dazzling theme stopped working after theme update...


After I have updated the theme, the Russian translation stopped working - everything is in English now.
Important remarks:

  1. The translation used to work.
  2. The ru_ru.po and .mo files are in the /wp-content/themes/dazzling/languages.
  3. I had exactly the same problem when I first installed the theme, and somehow fixed it. As I remember, it had something to do with files being called ‘ru_ru’ instead of ‘ru_RU’, but I don’t remember how I fixed it the first time - it was two years ago. I’ve been trying for several hours so far.
    What so far have been done:
    a) Adding the define( ‘WPLANG’, ‘ru_RU’); line to wp-config file.
    b) Renaming both ‘ru_ru’ into ‘ru_RU’
    c) Copying both ‘ru_RU’ into wp-content/languages/themes with the ‘dazzling-ru_RU’ names. Maybe it was completely unnecessary, but I am just trying everything at this point.
    Nothing works. The actual website is in Russian, but everything theme-related like ‘Popular-Recent’ widget is still in English.

Could you help, please?
P.S. Also, could you rename ‘ru_ru’ files into ‘ru_RU’ in the next and all following theme updates (the rest of the translation files are good - only Russian files are so “special”). Please. Because if I have to go through this every time I have to update the theme - well, not cool…

Goddamn it - the problem was cache… It prevented me from seeing the changes…
Apparently, the fix for the problem is to just rename the “ru_ru.po” and “” into “ru_RU.po” and “”. So if I may make a suggestion - I would suggest updating the file names in the next version so that no-one else runs into this problem.
