  • Resolved blndcat


    Hi Miyoshi-san,

    Great development of the bogo plugin. Very clean and simple. I do have a question though, is it possible to add translations of posts without the whole admin locale changing as well?

    If I write a post in English then add a Japanese translation, the dashboard changes to Japanese (I have the full set of Japanese .mo files installed)

    Hi Ian,

    Thanks for the suggestion. Let me think of it for the next update. But I worry that the feature will make the UI complicated.

    In the current version, you can only create posts in your selected dashboard language, but you can edit all posts in all languages.

    Once you have created a Japanese translation post (only this time you have to see Japanese dashboard), you can switch your dashboard to English and continue to edit the Japanese translation post in English dashboard. Isn’t this easy enough?


    Thanks for your reply, I am not sure that it would make the UI more complicated. It is the way that some other multi-lingual plugins work and they are not more complicated because of this but for other reasons.

    The workflow you suggest is not unreasonable or difficult, it is just a little user-unfriendly or maybe unintuitive.


    I think a lot of users would like to use BOGO to create translated posts/pages that site visitors can select without changing the admin back end.

    keeping the dashboard in one language would be very helpful
