- I would like to have separated comments for each language.
In order to have comments tracked separatly for each language, you will have to change your comments.php template file like this:
action=”<?php echo get_option(‘siteurl’); ?>/wp-comments-post.php”
action=”<?php echo get_option(‘siteurl’); ?>/wp-comments-post.php?lang=<?php echo zd_multilang_get_locale(); ?>”

- Added the possibility to switch default languages (meaning: exchange original posts/tags/cats with translated ones)
- Added translate links directly into the manage pages & into the Media zone of page/posts edition
- Added an option to generate permalinks for default language (ex-default behavior was always yes)

- Added an option to hide untranslated posts if they exists (ex-default : show all posts)
- Updated all database queries, reduced the numbers of queries executed per page (about 200 queries less) via caching methods. The plugin should now require something like 9 queries per page (which is huge i Know, but to translate a blog, this is “necessary”).
