  • Resolved Olaf Lederer



    thanks for providing this plugin, I work with the english version of wordpress for years and sometimes I need to build dutch websites too.

    You understand that just switching the language is a great time saver 🙂

    You’re using a cookie to store the language, why?

    setcookie('pls_language', $pls_language, time()+60*60*24*30, COOKIEPATH, COOKIE_DOMAIN);

    It would be much better to store this value in the wp_options table, this way you can setup the language by user… just a suggestion.

    Thanks again!

    WordPress defines language to use at stage when it know nothing about current user. So, there was know problem with one global for the blog language option stored in wp_options, but when I tried to have separate options on per user base I’ve got a problem, described above – I need language value for current user already but I don’t know who the current user are, as WP user routine is not loaded yet :).

    If you find a way to realize this, please share and I will add WP database storage as an alternative to cookie variant.
