Hello there 😉
your multilingual press plugin looks really promising …
when it comes to websites with multiple languages i do prefer a language setup in sub directory structure, e.g.
which seems to be perfectly possible with your plugin 😉
i prefer the sub directory language structure because of the SEO aspect of a website, as google treats sub domains, like, en.mydomain.com … fr.mydomain.com … differently
to get a good SEO all different languages should be within one domain, like listed above.
this works fine with one domain name, but how would i achieve the same results with another domain name in the same wordpress multi site install?
let’s say i setup another domain in the same wordpress multi site install in another sub directory. 2 or more subdirectories for each language ->
and then i’m going to map those domains with MU domain mapping plugin. but here i’m not sure how to domain map those sub directories? because i want to achieve the same results as with the first, primary, domain in the wordpress multi site install.
mydomain.com/otherDomainEnglish/ -> myotherdomain.com/en/
mydomain.com/otherDomainGerman/ -> myotherdomain.com/de/
mydomain.com/otherDomainFrench/ -> myotherdomain.com/fr/
but mapping to domain names with sub directories doesn’t make much sense?? i could always map to sub domains …
mydomain.com/otherDomainEnglish/ -> en.myotherdomain.com
mydomain.com/otherDomainGerman/ -> de.myotherdomain.com
mydomain.com/otherDomainFrench/ -> fr.myotherdomain.com
but then the languages would be spread out in sub domains, which i don’t want to have as this is not the perfect setup for SEO.
so … my question ->
is my suggested language sub directory setup with a second domain in the same wordpress multi site possible? or would i need to setup another wordpress multi site install for the second domain?
or could i use apache mod rewrite to tweak things?
maintaining one wordpress install for multiple domains is just a lot easier than having multiple wordpress installs for each domain …
any ideas and suggestions are more than welcome! and also thanks for this nice plugin 😉
greetings & fun
