I had an existing French wordpress site finished and client decided to add an English equivalent. I didn’t used multi-language because the content itself will be different on the different pages (i.e. images).
I thought multisite using subfolders might be quickest/best option but went through the steps and now I get the 404 error message when I try to access either site (french & english). Before I go through all the troubleshooting steps once again. Is there a better way to set this up? I have all the pages built but the biggest challenge is how to have different primary menus for the 2 languages. Will I even be able to select different custom menus for the primary menu on each sub-site?
I can access the network admin but I get the 404 message when I try to access the dashboard of either sub-sites.
I should reiterate this was a functioning wp site when it was only one language and then I attempted to set up the multisite. I didn’t do a fresh install but have followed the steps to activate multisite. Should I have deleted everything and started from scratch??
