Support » Plugin: Google Language Translator » Having flag display issues? READ THIS FIRST!

  • Plugin Author Rob Myrick


    Hi everyone!

    It appears there a few users are experiencing some flag display issues after the update to 4.0.3. This is most likely due to their WordPress themes overriding the styles of the plugin.

    Here is what fixes that problem. Post this CSS into the “CSS Overrides” box in “Settings > Google Language Translator” in your WordPress Dashboard.

    #flags li {
        width:auto !important;
        float:left !important;
        padding:0 !important;
        border:none !important;
        list-style:none !important;

    Please post a topic here if this fix below does not work.

    We will fix this annoying issue in the next update – sorry for the inconvenience.

    Rob Myrick

    Hi ckhNL, thanks for posting. Hey if you like the plugin better now, would you consider revising your review.

    I’m planning on moving images to a sprite and also consolidating more code in the future as well.

    But no pressure… 🙂

    I also did fix the issue you were having with code loading in unnecessary places in your WordPress pages. All scripts are now conditional and load on the proper pages ( I believe )


    Unfortunately this code is not working for me. I pasted it into Settings/Google Language Translator -> Add CSS Styles. Did I do it right?

    And the problem is that, the first flag is in a higher position, than the other ones.

    I also have a flag issue (even with your CSS adition)

    In the preview mode, the flags are ok, but in my site they are separated one from the other and between them there is a << sign

    Dear Rob,

    I have been trying to get the flags showing on my site now for 2 days – read a lot of the support queries and tried some solutions

    1. flash up to date
    2. added the CSS
    3. z-index:999
    I am using firebug and can see the flags div but it is greyed out. firebug shows the #flags css as display:none !important but with the site url and not the style.css url.
    If I delete the dsiplay none in firebug only one flag show up which is the original language flag.

    Please help!
