  • Requires at least: 3.5.1

Description

This plugin is at a beta stage for translating:

  • Posts
  • Pages
  • Custom post types
  • Categories
  • Tags
  • Custom taxonomies.

It is powering a live site at http://freespeechdebate.com/.

The plugin was built with an aversion to both additional database tables, additional columns or column changes and a desire to keep additional queries to a minimum. The plugin is (in theory) compatible with WordPress.com VIP and was built with this platform in mind.

There are a lot of @FIXME comments, expressing doubts, fears, uncertainties and unknowns; feel free to weigh in on any of them.

Please add bugs and contribute patches and pull requests to https://github.com/cftp/babble/issues

Pull requests on the develop branch, please, not the master branch.

Installation

Installation is fairly standard:

  1. Upload the babble directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Ensure pretty permalinks are activated in Settings -> Permalinks, not sure how it will cope without these!
  3. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  4. You'll now be prompted to set the languages you want, you can pick from any of the language packs you've got installed
  5. You'll notice the language switcher menu in the admin bar, use this to switch languages and (depending on context) to create new versions of the content you are looking at (from the front end) or editing (from the admin area)
