I am having my website developed by an external dev, and I am keen for Polylang to be installed for multi-language support.
The design solution I want for swapping languages is a 'drop down' featuring all the language flags for my site. (No text descriptions of the languages - just the flags).
The dev says that he will need to alter the code in order for the plugin to be styled with the flag drop down. He says this feature is not currently available through Polylang.
He says that due to this code modification, I will not be able to update Polylang without losing the customised coding.
- > Question: do you agree that this is my only option to get the 'drop down' flag functionality? Is there no existing solutions within Polylang that the dev can use for this feature?
Also, what are the risks of going with this 'frozen' customised solution? e.g. will I still be able to update my WordPress installation with the old Polylang version.
Excuse my non-techie knowledge. :)
