Blood Donation – Length of the Regeneration Phase

Question

How long will it take for the body to replenish the pint of blood I donate?

Answer

«Your body will replace the blood volume (plasma) within 48 hours. It will take four to eight weeks for your body to completely replace the red blood cells you donated. The average adult has eight to 12 pints of blood. You will not notice any physical changes related to the pint you donated.» (Quelle: mskcc.org)

WooCommerce – Renaming the «Place Order» Button

Problem

The translation of the button «Place order» doesn’t seem to work with the current version of WooCommerce (2.4.10). It’s simply ignored.

(Possible) Solution

1. In the file «payment-method.php» look for the following code:

data-order_button_text="<?php echo esc_attr( $gateway->order_button_text ); ?>"

2. Replace the code within the quotes with the desired text. Example:

data-order_button_text="Bestellung abschicken"

Note

This procedure is a rather dirty solution. Especially because you have to redo it after every plugin update.
