YD Setup Locale

Description

This very simple WordPress plugin automatically sets up the WP language environment based on the first part of the url of any page.

It will automatically setup the right XML header lang attribute + the internal WordPress $locale variable that is used to load the right language files for i18n and l10n (.po, .mo).

Usage:

Your blog URL structure should always begin with an official two-letter langage code, for example:

  • /en/… for english
  • /es/… for Spanish
  • /ja/… for Japanese
  • /fr/… for French
  • etc.

Please use only lower-case codes.

Pages that don’t comply to this URL scheme will still get your blog’s default locale setting, as configured in your wp-config.php file.

Sometimes you need to rename or copy some of your po/mo files, for example French language PO files are usually named like this: fr_FR.po;
just copy it to fr.po to make it work with a two-letter code.

Example

This plugin is used for extended multi-language support on the Post2Peer.com open posts directory.

Français

Ce plugin permet très simplement de faire fonctionner un blog multilingue ou bilingue, français/anglais par exemple.
