Multiple languages blogging. A core solution?
This is a great idea and this is essential for a
full-blown CMS which WP strives to be.
The VPML guy in the begineing of the thread said that WPMLs code base is about 30% of WordPress. Yeah, that might be true, but it is only necessary to be that big because it's not deeply integrated into the core and the cores db-structure. If you could put a language flag on all posts and metadata directly there would be little need for a lot of logic concerning this and it would not hurt performance very much for those that does not use this.
Excellent idea. I have a site that is multilangual and as stated by some, none of the available plugins do the job.
I wwould LOVE to see this feature implemented...
This is my primarary wish: to have ML in core and don't mind if a plugin is mantained well. I hope it is coming this year.
WPML is awese and I use it alot, but it would be so much more reliable and probably also faster to have this implemented in the core.
1. The way WPML works is by mapping seperate posts to each orher (which is the best approach imo) but this breaks allot, especially in custom post types and plugins. Even get_permalink will return the permalink of the passed id without taking language into consideration.
2. Having the mapping and language code in the wp_posts table and not in post mrta will increase reliability, simplicity and speed
These are things that can only be done in the core, so i really hope this is happening
