I wonder that forum direction problem fixed in this version or not? My mean can change to right to left?

A problem in the Forum plugin would have to be fixed there, not in Geeklog. So the answer is "no".

We are already aware of this issue and it is in our bug tracker here:

A Hebrew language file has already been merged into our repository, but it will not be shipped with the next release of the Forum as we still have most text directions hardcoded and we also have now entered a feature freeze. So, I think that this issue will not be resolved soon, though we are hoping that someone will come along and help us with it, since currently (AFAIK) not a single developer of the Forum speaks (or understands) an RTL language.

Many time I asked about text direction in forum RTL, two three time users telling about Hebrew language site solved this problem by LWC, I try to contact him, he did not got answer exactly how to do. and some time never ot answer.

I saw lots of open source CMS, and change direction easily, even in Joomla in some HTML file change a charachter (direction>0<direction change to direction>1<direction) all site completely changed, even header image, logos direction. I looking for HTML file in geeklog too, but I did not find related direction file.

Again, the problem you experience seems to be specific to the Forum plugin. As far as I'm aware, Geeklog itself works reasonably well with RTL languages (and if it doesn't, please submit bug reports). So why don't you try working with the group that's trying to revive support for the Forum plugin by explaining to them exactly what's wrong and what needs to be fixed?

To answer your question: Text direction is changed automatically when the language file indicates that it's an RTL language by declaring this variable: $LANG_DIRECTION = 'rtl'; Everything else should happen automatically. And if it doesn't - see above.

Thanks your reply. I know about $LANG_DIRECTION = 'rtl'; but this will change direction for geeklog main page (or front page), not for forum. My problem is on forum direction change.
I want to work with group, but I have not enough knowledge about program writing. I only can translate to my language.
