my problem is that the links from the features and the boxes will point to the default language of the site (which is french) so english speaking users are always forwarded back to the french page.

It looks like you'll need some kind of browser redirect system or browser language detection (possibly both).


This is not an easy thing to manage using WordPress.  Most websites with foreign language versions have a complely translated sub-site for each language.  QTranslate does that translation for you, but doesn't change the direction of links based on language, as you're seeing.


By having a sub-site in each language, you're able to keep links directed within that language.  Some redirect plugins are able to guide links, but one cannot be sure they'll work if you don't have the correct pages available.

    • Blog Posts No Longer Working
      By Rob Thomas+
      For some reason the main site of my multisite has lost the functionality of its blog page.
      If you click on a non-link post (i.e. not the links Pageline allows you to set up in the "Format" menu when you edit the post, or video, etc, but set as a "Standard" post), you get no content and a page that only shows a comments field (e.g. "Leave a reply"). If you go into "edit" the post, the content shows up. But not under "view post." 
      I have toggled to all non-Pagelines themes and it works fine in twenty eleven, thirteen and fourteen. It does not work in any Pagelines theme (e.g. postpins, DMS, iBlogPro, etc.). This appears to be confined to this blog. None of the other blogs on the multisite are affected. I have tested with all of the plugins turned off. No effect. 
      Debug only returns the following message: 
      Notice: wpdb::escape is deprecated since version 3.6! Use wpdb::prepare() or esc_sql() instead. in /www/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3411
      Interestingly enough, I played around with the Permalinks. If you set them to default something interesting happens: the "Blog" item in the menu will no longer go to the "Blog" page. It will go to the "Home" page, even though the posts page is set to the "Blog" page and the Front Page is set to "Home" in Reading. Also, this one part that becomes broken when you switch back to default Permalinks works fine when you are in the visual editor but not when you log out (then you get the Blog link going to the Home page). 
      For posts with actual content, you can test those titled "Smut Capital of America" or "Some Problems with Linda Williams' "Hard-Core Eroticism" which are posts 7 and 8 down, respectively, since the others are just video or linked content. Yes, this is my porn studies class. So, for example: 
      I test my sites at the beginning of the semester and this definitely wasn't a problem before. However, that could mean this happened anytime between the end of August and now. It's too bad I didn't notice earlier. Normally, if something doesn't work, students won't say anything. So, I have to be on top of things or they use it as an excuse not to do work. It's important that I get this working as soon as possible. 
      I tired enabling Legacy Mode on the blog. This allowed the content posts to show up as showing full content on the Blog page, but then the newer posts that use the "link" and "video" functions from PL do not work. I also tried using PostLoop or PostPins, same result. I may have to put the content in myself and use the Legacy settings as a way to at least get things up quickly. Not sure what else to do. 
      This is a Multisite hosted on Flywheel. Also, I tried deleting the cache. No change.

    • NavBar Parent links not clickable
      By greatthingsllc
      I have used the NavBar (Content Width) with blue background color selected.   The Parent Links are not clickable, only the child links.   I have tried with "Activate DropDown on Hoover" both selected and unchecked. 
      Only the NAVI (Content Width) allows the parent links to be clickable, but you can not select a background color.    The background color is a requirement from the end user.

    • Translation of Search Results More Button
      By achim
      There is no language key 'Read More <i class="icon icon-angle-right"></i>‘, so this wouldn’t translate:
      - __('Read More <i class="icon icon-angle-right"></i>', 'pagelines') + __('Read More', 'pagelines').' <i class="icon icon-angle-right"></i>'
