Unless someone more expert than me can solve your problem, the only advice I can give you is to use a RTL structured theme, like for example Bluebayou or iGray (this one available in both ways RTL and LTR).

Hi, and welcome to the FlatPress support forum! :)

I have a freshly installed FlatPress with Leggero v2 as active theme. I just add these two lines to the defintion of "html" in fp-interface/themes/leggero/leggero-v2/res/common.css:

Code: Select all

direction:rtl;
unicode-bidi:embed;

Refreshing the page, I instantly see the punctuation marks (!?.) have moved from the right to the left side ("!Welcome to FlatPress" instead of "Welcome to FlatPress!"):

Can you get it working this way?

All the best,
Arvid

If you followed the suggested steps and still don't see the effect, please clean the FlatPress template cache: Go to your admin area, then "Maintain" -> "Purge theme and templates cache".
To be sure your browser cache doesn't cause trouble, just reload your blog with Ctrl+F5. This forces the browser to freshly fetch every ressource of the page from the server: Images, scripts, style sheets.

Let us know if that worked for you!
All the best,
Arvid
