    I made available a development version of Polylang v0.6. You can download it here. I recommend to use it for tests only but all feedback and bug reports will be appreciated.

    Changes are numerous:

    * WordPress languages files are now automatically downloaded when creating a new langage
    * Add the possibility to change the order of the languages in the language switcher
    * Add the possibility to translate the site title, tagline and widgets titles
    * Categories, post tags, featured image, page parent, page template and menu order are now copied when adding a new translation
    * Translations are now accessibles in the "Posts", "Pages", "Categories" and "Post tags" admin panels
    * Improve the dropdown language switcher widget (sends now to translated page or home page based on options)
    * Move custom flags from polylang/local_flags to wp_content/polylang
    * Add two options to "pll_the_languages" ('hide_if_no_translation' and 'hide_current'). The function does not output ul tag anymore.
    * Bug correction: Twenty eleven custom Header problem with v0.5.1

    Important changes that may break things for people which customized the language switcher :
    * The function "pll_the_languages" does not output ul tag anymore. I removed them to be consistent with functions of the same type in WordPress
    * The custom flags directory has moved from polylang/local_flags to wp_content/polylang. This decision follows a discussion I had with Ipstenu

    I just updated the development version to include bug corrections and updated documentation.

    Hi there,

    The new functionality of synching metadata between languages seems to break the ability to select the same featured image on linked posts, which is quite baffling.

    Otherwise, nice plugin. Hope you'll manage to keep it simple.

    Quick fix:
    Edit include/admin-filters.php and at the line 349, replace
    if ($value = get_post_meta($_GET['from_post'], $meta, true))
    by
    if ($value = get_post_meta($post_id, $meta, true))

    * The custom flags directory has moved from polylang/local_flags to wp_content/polylang.

    OK! I copied a file at.jpg as Austrian flag into wp_content/polylang. But how to tell the plugin to use this flag instead of the german one?

    Please tell me exactly what to do. I could not find any info in the documentation.
    Thank you very much!

    Some flags are supplied with the plugin. However, you may want to use your own flags. For each language, the plugin will look for the file locale.png in the 'wp_content/polylang' directory. For example, if the locale is en_US, it will look for en_US.png. Don't use the 'polylang/flags' directory as your modifications may be overwritten when updating Polylang.

    The WordPress German locale is de_DE. So your flag should be named de_DE.jpg or de_DE.png.

    The WordPress German locale is de_DE. So your flag should be named de_DE.jpg or de_DE.png.

    THX! Now it works at the frontend! At the backend still the german flag is shown. and it would be nicer not to change the flags name from at.png or at.alt.png to de_DE.png if it is the Austrian flag. This can make mistakes! Where would it be possible to change this? Or what should be the correct code for austrian german? at_DE or de_AT does not work.

    Have a nice evening!

    Yes on admin side, you can't use custom flags, because you can choose a very big size on the frontend which would not fit in the admin panels.

    For now, the flag is mandatory named by the WordPress locale. Your language files is de_DE.mo, your flag is de_DE.png. Light and easy (even if I use a British flag for en_US and you use an Austrian flag for de_DE).

    I guess that if someday a specific Austrian translation exists, the locale will be de_AT, but as far as I know it does not exist yet.

    OK! I am glad you understand my question and intention! AND I am glad there IS an british flag instead of the US flag in your plugin! ;-)

    A combination of austrian/swiss/german would be great, but to much for one flag, I am afraid!
    THX

    Hi,
    I have a WP site in English and Italian (cristinadonadio.com), where English is the default language. I set to switch, with text and flags. They appear on the Sidebar widget.
    The English version is visible, but the switch does not work to Italian. I land on an error page that says: Index of /it

    Parent Directory
    Apache Server at cristinadonadio.com Port 80

    I tried everythig, including several versions of the PageID (I have permalinks).
    Please Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Thank you very much

    Currently I do not see the same error as you but the error message 'Nothing Found

    Apologies, but no results were found for the requested archive. Perhaps searching will help find a related post.'

    You get this error probably because you chose the list of posts as homepage and currently have no post in Italian. Create a post in Italian and it should solve the issue.

    The message appears in English because your theme is not translated in Italian.

    It's better to create a new topic. This one was not intended for support.
