Support » Plugin: Custom Permalinks » Polylang – Share same slug between languages

  • Hello,

    I am using Polylang to create a multilingual site.
    I would like all translated pages/posts to share the same slug between languages.
    In English:
    In French:

    Currently this is not possible due to WP limitations.

    I tried to use your plugin setting both pages custom_permalink to page-1.
    That means that
    EN page-1 has slug:page-1 and custom_permalink: page-1
    FR page-1 has slug:page-1-fr and custom_permalink: page-1

    The problem is that after doing that, both page URLs
    redirect to the same English URL

    I also tried custom_permalink: /fr/page-1 for the French, but the result was the same, it redirected back to the English page-1 URL.

    Is there something that can be done about that?

    Thank you very much,

    Hi Tobias

    I see that you were able to resolve the issue. How did you do it? Or did you just purchase subscription to PRO version?


    Hi Jaaarne,

    I’ve solved it by purchasing the pro version.
    But it’s also possible through research and writing custom php.
    Thats what I did before. But in my eyes its not worth the effort.
    Just go for the pro version.

    Thanks for clarification. I suspected as much.

    I would go for PRO, but I simply cannot afford it. 🙂 It’s very expensive and not worth it for me. I can have 12 piano lessons for these money. 🙂 I wanted it for a small non-commercial personal blog, because this plugin was the closest to what I needed. But since the first language is non-Latin based, translating slugs was not an option. As are 99 euros a year. 🙂

    Well. That’s quite disappointing, but I’ll live. Will go for multisite, then.

    Thanks again for the clarification! You have a nice looking website and very smooth user experience.

    @eltarny do you think you client will be welling to contribute for a specific task by a kind of donation and/or bounty for a specific issue ?

    @sasiddiqui if you give me 5minutes with your dev website I’ll setup it the way I always setup mine and always have this issue 🙂

    here few hints
    – my permalinks: /%category%/%postname%/

    plugins /polylang /settings
    URL modifications:
    — The language is set from the directory name in pretty permalinks
    — Hide URL language information for default language
    — Remove /language/ in pretty permalinks

    Custom post types and Taxonomies and Synchronisation:
    — they are all activated
