Using URL in boxes and feature with Qtranslate

Recommended Posts

Hi
I’m using PagelinePro theme for a page i'm building: www.americasblindspot.com .
it's a bilingual site, spanish and english, using the Qtranslate
plugin, that works great for titles and texts, but I don't know how to add code so that the the URLs I add in the boxes and features redirects to the appropriate language page.
Example: I switch my page to Spanish, and all the text is indeed translated correctly. But when I clik on a feature or box link, it redirects back to the English version of that page.
Can i included anything in the field “Feature Link URL: Adding a URL here will add a link to your feature slide-Enter Feature Link URL” so that it will send me to the Spanish version?
Thanks in advance

Add the following to platformbase/functions.php

[CODE]
function add_lang_features($metadata, $object_id, $meta_key, $single){
if ( function_exists( 'qtrans_getLanguage' ) && isset($meta_key) && 'feature-link-url' === $meta_key) {

return sprintf( '%s?lang=%s', $metadata, qtrans_getLanguage() );
}
return $metadata;
}
add_filter('get_post_metadata', 'add_lang_features', true, 4);
[/CODE]

Ok. I did something wrong.
From the editor in appearance, I selected the platformbase theme to edit. I opened function.php and on the bottom i pasted what you sent. But nothing happened.
did i do something wrong?

You probably dont have the platformbase theme activated. Also strongly advise against using the wp theme/plugin editor, its BAD, always edit files with FTP

Go to Appearance/themes and activate the child theme.

I appreciate your patience. I'm a bigger obviously. But in any case, I activated platformbase. It deactivated the pro, or at least it shows as needing reactivating, deactivated all my widgets and sidebars, and it's still not redirecting me to the correct language page.
everything that is deactivated with platformbase theme is reconfigured when i reactivate the platformpro.

Well the code will only run when platformbase is activated, yes widgets and menus may need re-adding, they are stored on a theme by theme basis.

Its up to you if you want to use it, i tested the code, it works 100%

OK. I re-added all now that pagelinesbase is activated. page looks as before, minus a tweak here and there, but it's still not directing me to the right pages. i don't doubt the code is 100% funcional, but I don't know what i'm doing wrong:
i included the code in pagelinesbase/functions via FTP, I activated pagelinesbase theme is appearance, i double checked all of the above...

OK it was slightly more complicated ;)

revised code.

[CODE]
function add_lang_features($metadata, $object_id, $meta_key, $single){

if ( ! is_admin() && function_exists( 'qtrans_getLanguage' ) && isset($meta_key) && 'feature-link-url' === $meta_key) {
remove_filter( 'get_post_metadata', 'add_lang_features', 999, 4 );
$data = get_post_meta( $object_id, 'feature-link-url' );
$link = sprintf( '%s/?lang=%s', $data[0], qtrans_getLanguage() );
add_filter('get_post_metadata', 'add_lang_features', 999, 4);
return $link;
}
return $metadata;
}
add_filter('get_post_metadata', 'add_lang_features', 999, 4);
[/CODE]

Hmmmm. Still not working. I replaced with the new code in the pagelinesbase/functions, and I confirmed the code code was actually changed. But still nothing. should i be adding something in the actual box to write the URL in each box and feature?
Thanks for your patience and insistance

Well yea, each feature will need a link, the filter just adds ?lang=xx to the end of the url

Sorry, i didn't explain myself. Of course all boxes and features have a link. But none of them have the ?lang=xx ending... the filter is not working...

The script is adding an extra / into the url either remove it in the script, or remove it from the url in the feature.

Almost there.
I erased directly in the link and the feature is working perfectly. Thank you so much.
The boxes though still don't work, even after I took the extre / from the link like with the features.

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
       
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
       
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
       
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
       
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
       
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.
       
      Best regards,

      Hi!

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:


      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
