Support » Theme: Elara » Polylang plugin

  • Hello!
    I’ve been trying to translate my website using Polylang plugin, but everything gets messed up. Is this plugin compatible? Is there another translation plugin compatible with Elara?
    Thanks!

  • Hello, lumestudio.

    Thank you for contacting us and for using our theme.

    If you want to just translate the theme from English to some other language, then you don’t need Polylang. You can use Loco Translate plugin – https://wordpress.org/plugins/loco-translate/.

    Here’s the short tutorial for its use – https://localise.biz/wordpress/plugin/beginners.

    Hope this helps but if you have any additional questions, feel free to ask.

    Kind regards.

    Hey, thank you for the prompt reply. I want to rewrite my posts in another language and have the language flag for the user to choose. Translations never really do a good job with certain expressions.
    Thank you though!

    Hi @lumestudio

    Polylang works with Elara, however we found that there are some issues in Customizer if you want to add different content according to chosen language. Apparently the strings from Customizer don’t show up in translation strings in Polylang.

    There is some workaround which requires some changes in theme file and it only works when homepage is set as static page. That means your blog feed (recent posts) section will be displayed on posts page, not on front page because static front page don’t have this section build in. I’m not sure if this is what you want.

    Kind regards
