    I like what this plugin does, it has, however only one flaw. I have to choose between having all languages in one domain, or all languages in different domains. I have three languages of which only one is in a different domain. The plugin can’t handle that, so I had to build one empty home page for that one language with a redirect to the foreign domain. Which is a pity because it is never good for SEO to have blank pages. Other than that, the plugin works a treat.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your feedback. When using one domain per language, you can use subdomains. For example:

    
    yoursite.com
    yourside.de
    it.yoursite.com

    Thank you, @chouby, and yes, I know. Problem is, I have
    nl.mysite.nl,
    en.mysite.nl
    and I use mysite.de, and I can’t connect those with the plugin. All I can have is an empty de.myite.nl page and redirect that to mysite.de. Which is a pity as it is not really SEO-friendly. Still, I am pleased with the other things the plugin does, so it’s not a complaint.

    Hello,

    Yes you can :). As I wrote previously, the mutiple domains option supports subdomains too. Select multiple domains and enter:
    nl.mysite.nl,
    en.mysite.nl
    mysite.de

    Hi again, @chouby, I checked the settings again, and it’s not what I wrote earlier. I have http://www.mysite.nl and the language is set from content. The site has been up and running for quite a while, and I wonder what happens to the existing pages if I change the URL settings into what you wrote. Will that make mix up my site or make it behave differently? Thanks for any help.
