Create networks with multiple languages
I tried a couple of multisite language plugins and this is the best I found (for my taste), install it and get it working.
It has a trick btw, Read the installation text to know how to make it work!, and you wont have to complain about it not working.
you can also install http://make.marketpress.com/multilingualpress/2014/10/how-to-add-icons-to-the-language-nav-menu-items/
to add icons to menu language links.
So, a well developed plugin that does what it says, also it seems that pro version features will be free in a short time
Keep up the good work
I've installing this plugin, but after I installed it to my multisite, i've tested it in my network and this plugin made me frustraded because It's very difficult to set up, the settings of this plugin appearing only in the multisite network admin page and general settings are not appearing in the main multinetwork settings menu as like instruction in your webpage says. I dont even have lots of plugins, which make conflict of this plugin, because i see other functionalities "language manager". Actually thats all what I found.
And next, after I figured out how to set up the plugin, I didnt found any possibility choose more then one language for my site. When i went to edit for my site, there was under "relations" only one language, which i chosed first, and dont have any ideas how and where to set up the second language. Just showing me under the "relations" one language and that's all. When I connected relations with other sites, it was still appeared one language, which doesnt make me sense at all. And there is also no guide how it works properly. So the resolution is this plugin just make me a big confuse and waste my time. I been so hopeful since I found this plugin and desired to extend it to the pro version but if I even cant set up it in the free version, then there is a not point to use this plugin anymore.
I had been looking for a while for a plugin that could help me make my website multilingual. It was your plugin (Multilingual Press) that was of great help. I wanted a simple though effective plugin that wouldn't mess with my content in any way. After making the desicion to go for your plugin, I needed to first make my site a multisite. This was done in 10 minutes. After this I cloned my root site (with NS cloner - site copier). This was done in 5 sec ;-). Activating MLP and configurating the settings was done in a couple of minutes too. And now MLP is running smoothly. This week I succeeded in adding a language button in my top menu, thanks to the add on and the fast support in your support forum! No mess. No stress. So 5 stars from me :-)
I downloaded the free version to test it. However when I run into a little customization problem I went to look for a solution in the support forum and there is where I got annoyed. All the support forum was visible but answers/solutions are fogged out. So if you do not fork out the dough, you cannot even read about problems already solved and how they were solved (response time, efficiency of solution etc...). Therefore, I will continue use (and pay for) competitors ...
Do I have to install other plugins such as wp multisite one or wp localization or any other ones so that it can work? Do I bave to get the po/mo of the theme and other plugins such as buddypress or woocommerce or any other ones? Those are the items tbat are not that cleared to me yet. I'll appreciate your support greatly! THANKS!
A good script. It deserves a good mark!
We're using Multilingual Press to handle multiple languages on a number of sites. Including moving sites off WPML.
Multilingual Press does its job well, and sits simply on top of the solid WordPress multisite core. No additional tables and no complex / convoluted 'run time' logic & URL manipulation.
The documentation could be improved -- clearer getting started guides.
If you don't want a multilingual solution where each language has its own site, then it's not suitable. We typically find this is a cleaner / more flexible model though.
Pro version (paid) is necessary for useful features such as duplicating blogs, and viewing all translations from one place.
With MultilingualPress Pro, I don't have any performance issues anymore. Getting rid off WPML I have a 70% faster loading website. The requests are much lower on each page with MLP. Great and easy Plugin!
