  • Multilingual ready and support WPML and polylang? Is string translation the only way? Any plans to support it natively for polylang and wpml?

    My philosophy is to not include 3rd party specific plugin code in the core Breadcrumb NavXT plugin. In general, most things are automatically translatable. Beyond what is possible using the WordPress API/concepts in core is the ground for extension plugins. There are premium extension plugins to Breadcrumb NavXT that fill in support for a few concepts that Polylang and WPML don’t automatically pick up on (translating root pages, translating breadcrumb templates).

    @mtekk I understand and I agree or use the toggle on/off functions to install extra addons for the core.

    The most things are just the text surrounding in the breadcrumbs But maybe can remove those or doublecheck if they pops up in string translations.

    But the biggest issue is that the plugin does not support multilingual for home url. It should in Gb link to home GB not the root domain etc.

    This is a core thing which makes me unable to use the plugin. Something you can support?

    So I have to use this extension for this? to make the root page be supporting multilingual?

    For the home page, Breadcrumb NavXT already uses get_home_url() to get the home URL. If the multilingual plugin is not translating the URL provided by that WordPress function, that’s on the multilingual plugin. Polylang apparently doesn’t handle translating get_home_url()‘s output (the Polylang specific extension plugin for Breadcrumb NavXT has to deal with the home URL). WPML does translate get_home_url()‘s output.

    In general, root pages that are set within the Breadcrumb NavXT settings page are not going to get automatically translated without an extension plugin (the multilingual plugins have no way of knowing what to do here as WordPress doesn’t have a concept of root pages for CPTs).
