Support » Plugin: Beautiful taxonomy filters » Translation Taxonomy Filter – Suddnely not working

  • Resolved Flexer



    For your incredible plugin thank you.

    I had a translated set of Taxonomy (using WPML) that they were working fine.
    It seems that at some point they stopped working. I cannot see any JS errors or PHP errors, but all searches show none found, in English there is no problem.

    Any ideas why it would sudddenly not work?

    Hi @flexer

    You’re very welcome 🙂

    So you have some taxonomies with terms in english which you’ve translated with WPML to french and it worked with BTF and now suddenly it just doesn’t?

    Have you done any updates recently to WPML?

    In general WPML is… to put it nicely.. not great for developers. I’ve spent many hours trying to make sure BTF is 100% compatible with it but there’s so much weirdness going on in their approach that made me give up.

    Honestly, If you’re still in a phase where you could switch it out I’d recommend Multilingual Press as my first choice and if that’s too much with the multisite setup even Polylang is far better than WPML.

    Hi @jonathandejong

    Thanks for getting back. No it’s way too late as this is an older project.
    I am not entirerly sure when it stopped working, and there were several changes to WPML.

    Yes we have two custom taxonomies that are translated, but the plugin returns no results.

    I ended up just coding my own filter for the translated side, it works OK. It seems that the URL BTF returns is possibly not compatible with WPML?

    If this helps

    The URL looks correct but it’s probably clashing somewhere with WPML as you say.. probably due to it expecting some translated version of one or more of those partials.

    Glad you got your own solution working in any case!

    Best of luck with your project Daveed.
