[Plugin Multisite Language Switcher] Suggestions
To Dennis (MLS plugin creator)
Wow ! What a great plugin. Thank you !!!
I’m just starting using it and it seems to work perfectly. It took me some time to find my way around though. That’s why I’ll make a few sugestions here. I hope they are constructive.
Brousing the net, I found this tutorial in French (which is my first language) –> http://www.julienmeyer.net/multisite-language-switcher/
It is very well done and it’s really what made me understand how MLS works.
I see there is a German and an Italian version of it.
So I come to my suggestions :
1) It’d be great to offer a English version of the tutorial since many WP users are English speakers or at least use the WP English doc.
Dennis, if you don’t find a native English speaker to do it, I’d be willing but I’m not the ideal person as my English is not perfect.
2) When discovering the WP page of the plugin, the instructions under the Installation tag is really not enough regarding the use of the plugin. I spent a lot of time trying things out and failing, scrutinising Google, etc before I finally found the French tutorial (mentionned above). To me, it’d be GOOD to advertise that tutorial (FR, DE, IT and hopefully soon, the English version too) on the plugin WP page .
3) There is a little detail lacking in that tutorial : the fact that after install, for the plugin to work, we need to save the settings of it on every site, even if we don’t change anything in the settings.
Otherwise, in the pages editor, we get a king of error message instead of the flags with the lists of pages.
Took me hours before I finally found out the trick on some forum page.
Improve French version of the MLS settings page
My overall network is in French. What is weird is that whatever the language of each site, the plugin settings page is in French. I don’t really mind except that it is very badly translated. That’s one of the reasons why I couldn’t figure out how it was working ; most of the fields labels don’t mean anything to me… Only the French tutorial helped me.
If you are interested, I’d be willing to offer a better French translation if you provide me with the English version of the settings page.
I hope my suggestions will be useful.
Thanks very much for this brillant plugin.
