Hyphenation issue on 3 languagues website
This is great plugin, but I can not make it work for all 3 languages. It works for Serbian Latin and English and not for Russian. Do you have any clue what should I do?

Hi @pepe, yes I mean on hyphenation, sorry I was not clear.
In Serbian latin it works: https://nsseme.com/proizvodi/kukuruz/hibridi-za-proizvodnju-zrna/.
In English it works: https://nsseme.com/en/products/corn/.
I can not make it work in Russian: https://nsseme.com/ru/produktsiya/kukuruza/.
I use Polylang and Avada.
If I turn on “Enable support for using multiple languages on the same site.” option and set “Language for hyphenation rules:” to SerboCroatian (Latin) I have hyphenation on English and Russian anf not on Serbian Latin.
I have tried so many times and I am stuck now.
I hope you can help me to find some solution to continue to use this great plugin.
Sorry @pvmatic I didn’t get around to this. Can you post your language/locale codes (American English would be
en_USfor example)? It is likely that there’s a mismatch between what the automatic switcher expects and what Polylang provides.
Serbian latin: sr_RS
What I did notice is that hyphenation works even on Russian language pages, but only for latin words. So I guess you may be right about locale codes.
I hope you can find some solution for this issue.
Thank you in advance.
Can you check if
sr_RSactually uses the correct hyphenation patterns? I would assume it does not, unless that’s your set language in wp-Typography’s settings page. Is there any way to determine the script variant (Latin or Cyrillic) from your locale strings? If not, I think you’ll have to work with a filter to get the right one even if I improve the matching algorithm.
As for why
ru_RUis not working, that’s pretty strange. You are using UTF-8 as the encoding?
In wp-typography settings default laguage is set to Serbcroatan (latin), because there is no Serbian (latin), but Serbian (cyrilic) only. Language I use on website is Serbian-latin.
Russan hyphenation is working but for some latin words only, and cyrilic words are not hyphenated (these latin words are on Latin language among words in Russian language.
@pvmatic I’m guessing that only the default settings are applied to all three languages (or at least to Serbian and Russian).
Can you confirm that the Russian sub-site is encoded in UTF-8?
Also, please post your hyphenation settings (minimum length etc.).
Serbocroatin (latin) works for Serbian-Latin and English. On pages on Russian language it works for latin words only.
Russian website is on same domain as Serbian and English and there is no any additional settings.

Thanks. Does the Russian sub-site use UTF-8 encoding?
There is only 1 config file for all languages:
OK, that looks good. I’ll try to recreate the scenario.
Thank you so much.
Hi @pvmatic, I’ve created a Polylang installation with
ru_RUas locales and set the wp-Typography settings to what you have indicated above. I’ve also copied some example texts from each of your subsites.
To my surprise, the Russian post got hyphenated where the same text is not hyphenated on your site. I don’t immediately see why. Can you please create a minimal test installation with just Polylang and a default theme? It should work as expected. Then you add plugins one by one (and configure them as on your true site) and check when things stop working.
Somewhere, there must be a filter or something (because wp-Typography does do some de-widowing from the looks of it) disabling hyphenation. Maybe in a forgotten part of
functions.phpor an MU plugin?
Which is your default language?
Is multilanguage support checked or not?
I will try< to see what is going on.
Default language has been set to Serbocroatian (Latin) and Multilingual Support was enabled of course.
