have an existing site & want additional english version (5 posts)

    How do I go about creating an additional English version of my site (in Polish), if the original site is set up and running for over 3 years?

    I do not want to loose my links and SEO ranking in search engines, just want an English flag on my page, redirecting to identical structure & content but in a different language...

    Note, my links within site are custom (category names)...
    I am a beginner in WP and have learned / discovered everything I know by myself, so far. Never been taught anything but anyone who knows about WP.
    Please help:)

  2. If you do it via Multisite, just activate Multisite on your site. It will let you make en.site.com and off you go.

    There are other plugins, though, like qtranslate.

    I have something in my WP Tools which probably is multi-site (in Polish it is called "Creating a network"?) but when I try to start it (after disabling all my plugins), it informs me that since I have an existing site running "the network" will loose all my existing links/structure... :(

    This is not what I want, I want additional new structure (identical link the existing one), but translated to English and linked (accessible via) to an image of a flag.

    Have you any suggestions or do I have to create new separate WP and simply link it to a flag placed somewhere in my original site? :(

    You ... What? It doesn't say that (I just ran it this morning). Unless you mean you HAD a multisite before and didn't delete it. Which is possible.

    Read http://wpmututorials.com/how-to/how-to-disable-multisite/ to clean up an old install, if you had one, and start over. No, you won't lose your site.
