Simple Language Switcher

Description

Simple Language Switcher is a simple and lightweight plugin that allows you to display a language switcher on your site.

Features

  • You can easily customize the display of your language switcher (language ISO codes, language names or flags).
  • Interconnect your post in different languages (avoids the user to be redirected to the home page when switching to another language).
  • Current language detection with regex: avoids displaying a link to the same page in the same language.
  • Generates rel=”alternate” hreflang=”x” links for SEO purposes.
