    in reply to: How to set up in network #8714

    Hello there,

    It seems that you should treat each network as independent since they all have a translated page/version in the same installation.

    At the end it doesn’t really matter since you have to manually set the url of the translated pages on both sides ( in your case German and English )

    To summarize the solution from our previous email conversation.
    Right now the Croatian link takes the current url as default value when the page language is unknown because Croatian is the default language of the site.
    The next step is to set up the urls for each post/page.
    When you edit the post you should see in the sidebar of the editor the following language box :

    Sorry for the delay.

    First you need to build an array for the switcher:

    $switcher = array(
    	
    	'urls' => array(
    
    		'fr' => false,
    		'en' => 'https://',
    	),
    	'main' => 'fr',
    );

    Then update the 2 following post meta data:

    update_post_meta( $post_id, 'lsw_language_switcher', $switcher);
    
    update_post_meta( $post_id, 'lsw_main_language', $switcher['main']);

    If you are editing a post that already has settings don’t forget to merge the previous array with the new one:

    $switcher= get_post_meta( $post_id, 'lsw_language_switcher', true);
    
    // add/modify english url
    
    $switcher[urls]['en'] = 'https://';
    
    update_post_meta( $post_id, 'lsw_language_switcher', $switcher);

    Technically yes.

    Assuming you have a $post_id you can do:

    $lang = Language_Switcher::instance()->get_post_language($post_id);

    For a term it is:

    $lang = Language_Switcher::instance()->get_term_language($term_id);

    Either way you should get something like:

    array(2) {
      ["urls"]=>
      array(1) {
        ["en"]=>
        bool(false)
      }
      ["main"]=>
      string(2) "en"
    }

    To retrieve the language use:

    $lang['main']

    Hello,

    Thank you for pointing this out!

    3.7.2 should fix that when activating Austrian German / Österreichisches Deutsch

    The flag should follow.

    Let me know if it works for you.

    Just passing the solution you emailed me earlier for the users in the same situation:

    .flag.flag-en {
    
    	background-position: -256px -143px;
    }

    Thanks!

    in reply to: When switching languages some of the Menu Items disappear #8287
    Rafasashi
    Keymaster

    I am not excluding the fact that it could be a bug but first let see if the regular behavior of the plugin is applied.

    When you switch to a language the menu should show only the items from the same language.

    Is the translation url set for the “disappearing items”?

    Alternatively your can try to disable this filter by checking the “Disable Menus Query Filter” box in admin panel > Languages > Settings

    Let me know if it works for you.

    The plugin follows the core WP language location/pair and point to the national flag.

    In some cases (such as UK or US) it might not reflect the identity of the site and this is why I made the flag implementation optional by manually adding it to the CSS.

    My suggestion to solve this issue is to tweak the CSS either by modifying the image containing all the flags located or by pointing the CSS rule to another flag.

    To use a custom image follow these steps:

    1 – Download the flag image located in the plugin at:

    language-switcher\assets\images\flags.png

    2 – Modify the flag with an image editor

    3 – Upload the new flags in your media gallery

    4 – Replace manually the url of the old flags by the new flags in the CSS rule

    This change will not be affected by future plugin upgrades.

    Hello,

    Thank you for reporting this.

    The CSS for the Czech flag is missing in the example.

    We will add it but in the meantime you can manually add this into your style:

    .flag.flag-cs{
    	background-position:-16px -33px
    }

    Hello there!

    The language selections should be prefixed by <span class="flag flag-{iso}"></span> allowing you to implement flags via CSS:

    Is it answering you question?

    Hello Martin,

    Thank you for reporting this.

    The issue was fixed in the version 3.5.0

    Could you please try and let me know if it works for you?

    You are welcome!

    Thank you for your kind words.

    Unfortunately the plugin do not yet offer the option to differentiate the language of the individual links in the menu.

    I think that the best option would be to use one WP installation per language to be able to customize the respective menus accordingly.

    Hello Sergey,

    In your post you linked to an article that doesn’t exist.

    It should end with -ru/ instead of /ru

    I also suggest to use the English title in the link (slug) of the English version because it is better for SEO.
