Dynamic Widgets
[resolved] so confused: display tags specific to language (5 posts)

    Most wp plugins are pretty intuitive but for some reason, I can't seem to understand how to use Dynamic Widgets.

    I have the WPML plugin (full version) installed and I have 3 different languages associated with my blog. I'm also using the Ultimate Tag Cloud plugin. Right now my tags widget is displaying ALL the tags in all the languages in my sidebar but I would like it to show only the tags in the relevant language. For example, if the viewer choses to view the blog in French, then the sidebar should only display the French tags.

    Can someone please give me a step-by-step tutorial on how to use DW to achieve this?

    Thanks!

    I'm sorry, this is not possible with Dynamic Widgets. DW only shows or hides widgets following the options you set. It does not alter the contents of widgets.

    Oops, sorry for not being clear. I know that DW can't translate my tags (I have manually translated each tag to their respective languages using WPML). But I thought that DW was supposed to make it so that it can hide/show certain tags according to the language parameter? No? Then how does DW's Languages feature work? (I see it as an option...)

    Nevertheless can you please still give me a step-by-step tutorial on how to use DW to customize my sidebar or point me to some other websites where this is further explained? I don't know why but I'm still confused on how to use DW... :(

    No, DW can not hide tags for you. That is changing the contents of a widget. DW can hide widgets based on tags you have set to e.g. a post .

    On my website you can find examples.
