Support » Plugins » [Plugin: Gengo] category does not translate

  • So I got gengo 2.5, it is pretty much what I looked for a long time!


    It doesn’t translate the categories, at the beginning only some where translated, wheater other not at all. I have already put up the origional taxonomy.php again, in case I messed that up with come plugin to order the categories (btw, which are now all deactivated).

    The link which adds the language widget are not or only sometimes working. Mainly they are just highlighted as links at all.

    Is there some way to put automaticly a little button for the avaible version of a post/page somewhere?

    Thanks a lot guys – I’m sure thats not a big deal for you.
    …and YES I’m waiting for authorisation for the gengo-forum (christian)

  • It only translates the category name if there are posts written in the translated language in that category.

    If you are viewing you site in language A, and then there is a post in language B but bot in A in category C, then category C is shown in language B, not A (like the rest of the site). It should be hidden. Well it isn’t –> confusion.

    Write at least one post in each language in each category and the trouble should be gone.

    I have reported this bug.

    Also note that the “this is a translation of page/post…” might have trouble with the “next X” button.

    And the snippet translation feature fully works. You only cannot see the snippet contents in the admin panel. Some sort of display bug. Hold on. They sure can be solved (these all worked in a previous version).

    Gengo has a list translations feature that allows you to list the other languages belw each post.

    Please report your problems here:

    Temporary fix to a few problems:

    The latest version of Gengo seems to be lacking the JS folder. After uploading the latest Gengo to your site, get the gengo/js folder from an older version of Gengo.

    Then Gengo should work.

    Thank you soooo much LostInNetwork!!!
    I just made an post, which linked to all categories in both languages.
    YEP – it’s working.
    For the other question I will post in the Forum:

    Thank you!


    Anyone got a fix for that?

    I think Gengo is the best multilingual plugin for WP in terms of approaching the problem but unfortunately development has somewhat died 🙁

    What I also noticed is that categories do not get translated on single pages as well as on posts that belong only to one category. Tag and date archives suffer the same blow…
