    how/what does _t mean? Link to this post

    It's in the ForumRole.php hence the post in here,

    new CheckableOption('CompanyPublic', new TextField('Address', _t('ForumRole.COMPANY', 'Company')), true),

    I'm guessing that it tests for the existence of a Constant (which as far as I can see isn't set anywhere in v2.5) and so returns Company in the call above.

    I'd like to know where this function/method called _t is?

    should it be used in other places? is it a relic from version I've read it could be a private method but don't know where to look.


    possible answer = I think it's something to do with internationalization - i18n

    _t is the translation function. You'll see it throughout all the modules and all the core. See http://doc.silverstripe.org/doku.php?id=i18n#the_t_function for more information
