Helps you create links between equivalent (but different language) pages between WordPress installations.
No idea, sorry. Let me know if you discover anything exciting.
Yes. Unlike Basic Bilingual, Language Linker allows you to create links between as many different linguistic versions of your site as you wish. You just need to specify the languages in the settings at the top of the plugin file.
Yes, there certainly are. My approach is to keep it simple and minimal, so that it works.
Yes, but you need to get your hands dirty. The function
bll_embed_slug_links controls if the links go after or before the content. If you want them completely elsewhere, you need to comment out the
add_action('the_content', 'bll_embed_slug_links'); by adding "//" in front of it (or deleting it, but that's not recommended), and use the template tag
<?php bll_the_slug_links(); ?> in your template where you want the links to appear.
Flags should never be used as a symbol of language. Languages and countries don't match. If you'd rather replace the square brackets with curly ones or
other fancy stuff, you can try editing the function
bll_make_the_slug_link() if you can figure it out.
