Right-To-Left languages are those that start on the right and move to the left, in terms of word order and letters. By default, WordPress runs in Left-To-Right mode, but there are thousands and thousands of WordPress users that read RTL. One of the points that most WordPress plugin developers fail on is testing and ensuring their plugins work with RTL. This is a short video that will give you a brief introduction to testing with RTL.

    WordPress is really good at dealing with RTL, but developers need to be aware of it in order to take advantage of the built-in RTL goodness. Thank you for increasing awareness of this issue.

    I need to test the content on a RTL website e.g Arabic. Is there is a documented technique to follow for the same?

    This plugin is cool, how I can move only the dashbord panel to RTL ?
    not the website.

      It’s limited to your current user session so there’s no concern with your users getting the site swapped for them.

      I’m not aware of any plugin that lets you do it in just the admin, sorry.
