Do i have to use Static Page as Front Page (5 posts)

    First off, excellent plugin, and free nonetheless. You are getting a donation from me!

    Second, do i have to use a Static Page for Front Page? My client just called and said he wants a second language, default being English.

    I have a Front Page that displays my latest posts, because of the theme i am using (uses custom post types to make the front page look as it does).

    So i installed the Polylang plugin and added the second language, but when i click on it, my homepage content is gone? I have created the pages in the second language (Croatian) and created the menus.. Am i missing something, or do i need a Static Page for my Front Page in order to get this to work?

    Thanks

    It is not mandatory to use a static front page. Could you update to the development version ? If it does not solve the issue, could you check if it does not come from a conflict with the theme or another plugin and if not, come back with more precisions (at least all your Polylang settings as well as your permalink structure) ?

    To display whatever content on front page you should use home.php file in theme and customise it the way you need. WordPress automatically uses it as front page. That way you don't need to set a page as front page.

    The latest development version is always here: http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/polylang.zip

    Currently it is version 0.8.0.6 if my browsers cache does not trick me.
