I run a bilingual site and would like to be able to switch to the page's other language version while on the page. (Actually, it's not a nice to have; my colleagues are begging me for it.)
I use WPML to manage page translations. My FRENCH content link in the header menu will take me to the FRENCH home page, but not to the FRENCH version of the page I'm browsing. I remember that being easily managed in my old Dreamweaver/HTML site. Is there a WordPress plugin that will accomplish same?
It's an interesting case and question here. I'll admit off the start I'm not too familiar with WPML plugin.
Do you have French and English versions of each and every page? If so, I wonder if we could set up some easy button that could go on all pages, and be there to switch (reload) the pages between the English and French versions. I kind of wish the URLs were consistent between the two, then all the button would have to do is stick "/en/" into our current (french) URL, and the switch between the two would be very easy. Without that, switching between a French and English URL counterpart would require some kind of hierarchical relationship (categories, tags, or some table) to allow us to know what the switch is....SOMETHING to tip us off where the other language URL is, to load it onto that page's button programmatically.
Perhaps I need to learn more about WPML plugin to really know the parameters of this question. Good luck!
Before I mark this issue as resolved, I wanted to share that I found another acceptable way of doing it with a new WPML Multilingual CMS functionality. See it at work here: http://www.mrcpontiac.qc.ca/le-pontiac-procede-au-regroupement-de-ses-omh/
