Support » Plugin: Simple Language Switcher » Simple language switcher on multiple WP installations

  • Hello,
    I found your plugin and I thought that exactly what I need!! But I’m affraid it won’t work in my multilingual setup…
    In order to have multilingual site, I’ve tried qTranslate but it didn’t work as I presume it was not compatible with my theme (it messed up my page layouts). Besides that, I have flash intro with text inside in home page which can’t be recognized with multilingual plugins such as qTranslate or WMPL. I’ve also tried to set up multisite but I wasn’t successful and had many problems with plugins on my site that didn’t work properly after creating network.
    After long time trying, basically what I did is was creating two WP installations for two languages (,, and translated them separately. In future I plan to have 4 WP sites for 4 languages.
    To create language switcher, my first idea was to insert text widget in main sidebar, which contains text (or flags) with links to different home pages depending on chosen language (<href=””>HRV | ENG …).
    But your plugin has posts and pages interconnect which is great, but will it work with different installations, and not multisite network? If it will, I presume I should install it on both instances of WP?
    Many thanks in advance,

    Hey, indeed it seems that I interconnect posts by their ID’s, so it wouldn’t work for different installations. What problems did you encounter while trying to set up a multisite?

    Dear matthewbe, many thanks for your answer, too bed it doesn’t work:-(
    As I’m quite new in WP, probably I did something wrong in setting MU, although I’ve followed all steps in WPcodex documentation (create a network) and tried to set it up three times… After importing subsite content, I had problem with links, many plugins, nextgen gallery did not work, I wasn’t successful in sharing nextgen gallery among sites, all files and folders where messed up after importing existing site from test domain to network subsite… so, I believe that someone with more knowledge can do it, maybe is my theme template that is problematic, unfortunately it was too big for me, and multiinstallation seemed to be the only solution.
    Thanks again..


    The plugin work´s great, thank you.
