    Hello,
    I am interested in using this plugin.
    I have a website that is based on English and using a flag it switches over to its Danish counterpart.
    Now – I am using Polylang but it seems to create the problem that it now adds a -2 on those pages that ends in the same title ie http://curo.net/eft and http://curo.net/da/eft
    The -2 is a big problem and I wonder if I can avoid it if I use the plugin multilanguage switcher?

    Thank you

    Yes, you could avoid this problem but you have to have a multisite. One for en and the other for da.

    Hello Dennis,
    My website is built up so one part of it is in English and clicking on a flag you are transferred over to the Danish counterpart which I have translated. Using translation programs does not work. I am still uncertain about what to do (am a novice) in order to create what you suggest?……….
    My website is http://www.curo.net
    Thank you very much for your advice

    I this one site or do you have 2 websites?

    Yes. The flag makes the switch. My website has been built using Polylang but I think that plugin is creating problems so that is why I have been looking into using Multisite instead. I just do not know how to install that plugin without creating problems. When I yesterday deactivated Polylang and activated Multisite it made my website disappear so I cannot rish that again.

    Yes, the transition to a multisite might be a little bit tricky if you don’t know exactly what you have to do. Just a multisite (without any further plugin) would give you all you need to separate the Dansk and the English contents. The switcher ties than your installs (and the contents if you wish) together.

    Thank you, Dennis, for trying to explain this process to me. I just know enough about WordPress to be able to maintain and insert my content etc. but I would not know exactly what I would have to do if I start using Multisite.
    So – are you telling me that I basically do not need a plugin given both parts of my website are already created in the individual language and that the flag is what separates those languages?

    Your input is very much appreciated. Thank you

    hi again Dennis,
    I just tested and it is obvious I do need Polylang since the flag does not switch me over to the Danish site when I had deactivated Polylang.
    I was hoping I could just change the plugin to Multisite however that obviously cannot just be done.

    Hi Dennis,
    I have found out that if I buy Polylang Pro then I will not have any problems so that is my solution.
    Thank you for your time.
