Support » Plugin: Multisite Language Switcher » limited number of languages?

  • Resolved sophie90


    I installed the multi language switcher – everything worked fine, i was actually pretty impressed.

    BUT: as soon as I tried to add a seveneth language, I was not able to edit posts any longer, so there seems to be some kind of problem.

    is there a limit to the number of languages i can switch between?

    [fyi: my site consits of 20 different language versions, each is hosted on a subdomain –,, etc.]

    any ideas?

    there should not be any limit. Could you give me the language code of the seventh language?


    I tried a bunch of different ones – italian, french, turkish.
    At first I though there might be a problem with one of the language files, but it doesn’t seem to be the case.

    i’m using a theme designed by elegant themes, nexus, if that matters at all, a child theme to be more precise, but i made very little changes.

    Could you give me the list of the six languages do you have already? Do you have configured all this blogs with different languages?

    I will check this scenario and try to reproduce this issue. Thanks in advance for the information.


    so far i have these languages:
    croatian –
    catalan –
    german –
    spanish –
    turkish –

    i tested it with this story:
    you can see the links to the other version in the widget on the right sidebar.

    i have configured all blogs in the different languages – meaning that i have uploaded the respective .mo files to the “languages” folder and set the langueg in the “general” setup-page. (except for maltese, which does not exist as a wp-language, but that’s not the problem, i tried deactivating the maltese site completely, that didn’t help)
    i’m also using the native dashboard plugin so that all editors can use the backsite in their prefered language. (i also tried deactivating this plugin to check if there was a conflict with that, but it didn’t help)

    thanks for your help – i hope i described everything in a understandable way…


    … and English of course:

    The Native Dashboard Plugin is absolutly ok. I recommend that in the faqs too.

    The site in Maltese can create a problem when the Multisite Language Switcher is active there but you said the problem persists even if the plugin is disabled there. Have you disabled the site in the settings of the Multisite Language Switcher? Or how did you do that?

    Would you send me a screenshot like the “Edit posts” in to

    sent you an e-mail with screenshots.

    alright, here’s the soltuon realloc found (thanks!)

    “It could be problem with the memory because I saw that you use the select-inputs … you could try to activate the “experimental” autocomplete inputs. These inputs work quite good for me and you will not have the memory overhead like with the selects.”

    And that was it. Now everything works.

    I’m glad I could help with this! 🙂
