Support » Plugin: mqTranslate » New problem: menu link to `?lang=de` no longer works

  • Resolved Tim Morley


    I have used mqTranslate on several sites, always with a “switch language” menu (not widget). It’s a normal WordPress menu, where each element links to simply lang=fr, lang=en and so on. Worked great.

    After the last update though ( these menus no longer work. In the admin interface, everything is as it should be (i.e. the menu item “English version” has lang=en in the URL box, and so on) but when visiting the site, all the language options simply link to the homepage of the site, and don’t actually switch the language.

    If I manually type a URL with ?lang=en at the end, THEN the language switches, but for some reason the menu item which is meant to link to ?lang=en actually just links to the homepage.

    This appears to be a regression in the latest release. I wish I could submit a patch but I can’t see the cause of the problem. Help!

    I just tested your website and the language is correctly displayed and switched using the dropdown menu. If it is still not working, contact me at (you can write in French) and we will investigate it together.

    I have the same problem on
    In the Topmenu I have to links to ENG and DEU, both are not working.
    As link I have put in only ?lang=en and ?lang=de
    It worked fine before the last two updates of mqtranslate.

    Hi chsxf. Thanks for your reply, and sorry it has taken a week for me to spot it!

    The site is currently working, but only because I’ve done the hack described here:

    As a test, I’ve just updated mqTranslate on the site (to the latest version, 2.6.7) and the problem has returned. We can no longer switch languages. I’ll leave it like that for a day or two to show you (as I think most of our visitors are bilingual anyway!)

    Version 2.7 includes this fix. It should be OK know.

    Thank you, with the fix it worked.

    Works! Thanks a lot!
