We’re ready with a new developers version, which includes fixes for recent (and old) bugs.
Site-wide Activation for WordPress 3.0 MultiSite
This is the first release which supports MultiSite properly. Until now, a series of problems prevented site-wide activation altogether.
Now, superadmins can do a site-wide activation. Then, individual blog admins can configure WPML for their sites.
To use on WPMS (formerly, MU):
- Log in as the super-admin and activate WPML site-wide. This will create all the tables for all blogs.
- Each blog owner can go and configure WPML for their own languages.
Folks have asked us about special configurations for blog-farms. For example, configuring the languages once for all blogs. WPML doesn’t do this right now. If we need customizations, you can get a support subscription. We’ll help you with specific instructions on how you can customize WPML to your own taste.
Since 18.104.22.168, we’ve tracked down several bugs that affected different functions.
- Pagination not showing on custom posts archive pages
- Search results were not filtered by language on WordPress 2.9.2 (worked on 3.0)
- Thinkbox popups, which we use for announcements had a problem
- Auto adjusting IDs for post_parent was broken
All these bugs were pretty difficult to trace down. We managed to find and fix them after folks who had support subscriptions reported problems with their sites.
Next – Menus
The next major milestone for WPML would be multilingual menus. It’s a pretty large task.
If you want to help WPML get there faster and better, go and purchase a support subscription.
If it looks like we’re promoting this as much as we can, it’s the truth.
We’ve seen that when people pay us for support, everything goes better. We can dedicate our full attention to problems. Also, the folks who have those problems are much more responsive. They give us better debug information and test our fixes faster.
I guess that when you pay for support, you expect more and you get more. It’s pretty simple.
So, if you want to see WPML becoming a commercial level product, allowing you to build complex multilingual sites with WordPress, get your support subscription now. You don’t need to wait until you need our help. Buy the subscription, support our work and get the best help when you need it.
