Thanks to the continuously growing WPML community, new bugs have been identified in the last release so here we are  almost ready with a new release that includes fixes for these bugs or implementation for various small features.

Bug Fixes

  • Custom posts types were not always recognized in WP_Query
  • WP Menus:uninitialized array, added full list of languages to allow adding menus in other languages than the default one without being translations, fixed bugs with menu ids associations in the main translations table.
  • Fixed pagination links for configurations with language added as a parameter.
  • convert_url method works with https urls
  • WPML can filter multiple post types

Filtering multiple post types

Should be noted that this will not work 100% correctly when using post types that are translated mixed with post types that are not translated. The result is the documents corresponding to the not translated post types will not be displayed.

New Community Forum Moderator

Speaking of community, we’d like to thank Masino who accepted being our forum moderator. I asked Masino for a bio-note to include here and got this very modest reply. In Masino’s words:

I am just an ordinary person who is very enthusiastic about WordPress, especially in making a site that supports the use of several languages.

By following WPML discussion forum, I became aware of the many things associated with the technique in the development of multi-language sites, especially using the WPML plugin. In addition, I can do some small experiments associated with the solution to the questions in the forum, and apply it on my site.

My desire is how the plugin so that others could follow *rules* made by WPML so that each plugin developers or even users of the plugin can perform any customization of the plugin will be made into a multi-lingual. On the sidelines of my busyness, I am also glad to help so that other plugins can support the use WPML, especially the ones that I have been using.

Please join me in welcoming Masino to this new role. The community forum is very busy and having a great moderator is a vital.

Coming up

We’re not just fixing bugs – WPML is undergoing important changes that are expected to have a great impact on the overall user experience.
