unicode/utf-8/html5/css .. I think it's not a big deal to get it to support RTL.

We haven't actually done anything for RTL support yet. Most of it does involve changing left/right references in CSS, though there are a few other changes we'd have to consider.

I understand. However if it is possible to add an RTL language when you feel it is ready, I will be glad to take a look around and report back :)

We are almost ready to migrate from #VB to #XF but waiting official #RTL support (priority) as well as separate language name spaces for admin and public interfaces.

Unfortunately community created #RTL style is not well supported on the latest version of #XF.

I'm going to hate this.

Half of all bugs in the Bug Reports forum will be "RTL - This thingee isn't showing right in RTL mode"

Been there, done that. I'd probably have a whole forum dedicated to RTL issues so they don't clog up primary functionality bug reports.

RTL is such an important and key feature that we can't migrate our forum to XF without it.

Good part is:

- Fixing individual RTL bugs is lot more easier and quicker than other usual bugs in general.
- If anyone from the development team knows any RTL language then number of issues will cut down dramatically in the first place.
- Looking at the XF code, I can say, it is written the "right" way. Hence adding RTL support will not be a nightmare. I guess, they had RTL support in mind from the first day. :)

That will be a great idea. Also, if till then XF gets thread prefix, that might be another solution. :)

I was able to make all modifications needed for my test forum to fully support RTL. but i have to apply those modifications after every upgrade, it doesnt take more than 10 minutes. I prefere to wait until the officiall RTL support released to migrate. quick question, are we going to see RTL support on version 1.1.0 ?
