Support » Plugin: Bogo » filter menu /pages based on locale

  • Bogo feels like a nice elegant solution.

    I started creating translations, but now ad up with all the extra pages in my menu.

    Is there a way to filter whats shown in the menu based on current language locale?

    Polylang e.g. doest this by default, is handy so you dont have the keep returning to your menu settings when clients are adding pages.

  • I am facing the same problem.

    I am developing this website and I’m using the bogo plug-in. It works really nice and simple.

    The user creates a page and translates it. The user adds the pages to certain menus, each English page to the English menu, each Dutch page to the Dutch menu and so on. I want to eliminate the last step. I want to be able to filter my pages based on the locale. This way I can make WordPress generate the menus based on the Locale. That would be really nice 🙂

    So for example, If the locale is en_US, display only the pages which have the Locale property English. The locale property is already a property of the pages (as shown in the pages overview page). I tried some things but no success yet.

    <?php $args = array(
    	'locale' => en_US,
    	'_locale' => en_US,
    	'bogo_locale' => en_US,
    $pages = get_pages($args);

    Is it possible to filter pages like this? Do I have to filter in a different way? Or can I add the locale in any manner to pages so I can filter with the locale?

    I’d really appreciate a helping hand here.

    I solved this issue by comparing the locale with the url prefix.

    So if the locale is nl_NL, I split up the string by the ‘_’ character and take the ‘nl’ part. Now I take the post url: Split the string with ‘//’, take the first element of the array. Then split with with ‘/’. And take the first element of that array. What you will get is ‘nl’ for all Dutch pages.

    With this information you can compare the page language to the locale language and decide whether to display a post or not. I achieved this with the following code.

    Apologies because it’s not generic. You might need to adapt a few things in order for you to get it to work.
