Multiple languages blogging. A core solution?
I agree that most of the code for this this probably should be a plugin. But the database need good support for this in order to work better and much faster. The only core code that would be needed is adding support for this in queries(WP_Query or get_posts for example) and then a few helper functions. That wouldnt add much complexity and wont add a lot of overhead.
As it is now, all the plugins are hacks in one way or an other. It's a hell to maintain or migrate.
I fully support the post of pekz0r: if there is no consensus to code all ML-functions in to the core, there should be created an "officially plugin" with strong support from core devs. I had and have unsatisfying experience/s with existing ML-plugins which hinders to fully concentrate on building the content of ML-WP-pages.
In case you'd missed it, step one for WP is to get language packs working. Once we have that functional, so you only install one version of WP and easily upgrade languages, then we can work on step twos.
We are eagerly waiting for this feature. I wish it would be possible in the shortest period of time.
PM:sorry for my bad english.
Ipstenu: Yes, but that is something completely different. Language packs are only for translating the output of the code(core, themes and plugins) and has very little to do with translations of content witch is what we are talking about here.
People were asking about both aspects. So I thought educating them as to some of the progress would be nice, that's all.
I´m also Using qtranslate, but im not really happy with that. But I really need a multi language plugin...
