Building A MultiLanguage WordPress Website

Good CMS (not all) let you create and manage contents in multiple languages. It’s not trivial. Many things need to change when a site runs in multiple languages. The system needs to handle all sorts of strange cases and make it all seem like a piece of cake.
Many web sites need to be developed in several languages. Multi Language website development is a specialized skill. This is because it throws up various issues like:

  • Speed – How can you provide a customized user experience without decreasing the speed of the web application?
  • Translation – How can you translate all the content of the website into the different languages you would like to offer?
  • Font Support – How do you make sure that your visitor’s browsers support the fonts you will use.
  • Cost – How can you achieve this objective without multiplying the cost of developing the web site by the number of languages offered?

WordPress is an open platform for high level customization can help you create a multilingual website easily by plugins.

WordPress Problem: Post content disappear

This is the oddest thing I’ve ever seen on WordPress. Here’s my problem:
I have a whole ton of text. But the last few lines I have this:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.

IF I add this line next (without the quotes)…

“I try to keep anybody from having to go back and fix anything so it makes them have to play it now, you know?”

The entire body of the post disappears. Only the title shows up. If I remove that line, the text comes back. If I add “asdf”, the body stays. If I add a random line, the body disappears. I thought maybe it was a phantom html tag hidden in there or something, so I copied and pasted into notepad to clear any potential underlying formatting and it’s still doing it. I’ve never seen anything like it. I’ve been poking at this thing for hours. I even tried moving the entire contents to a new post. No dice. I erased and rewrote the entire offending section and then some… nothing. We’ve got several hundred posts and this has never happened. There’s a good 20 blockquotes in this post and everything works fine.

Separate pings from comments in WordPress v2.7+

One of the greatest disruptions to the conversation that goes on in comments are the trackbacks. They’re great, and I love it when people link to my blog. I always want to separate them because they really detract from the discussions that my readers are having, and they sometimes can make it difficult for a new reader to follow. How about you? This tutorial will show you how to separate Trackbacks/Pings and Comments in WordPress

What is the Difference Between a Comment and a Trackback?
A comment is an interaction between a reader and the blogger about the blog post. A trackback is a link to this post published on another blog post.

The thing it, it’s a little bit different in WordPress 2.7+ than in previous versions, so I had to look up how to split the comments from trackbacks. I started off by making some modifications to the comments.php and functions.php files. Now, comments show up on top, and trackbacks show up below.
