This is the third in a series of live lessons on using WordPress and Thesis as a Multilingual Content Management System (CMS). In the first phase of this case study we are creating a simple multilingual website in a single WordPress installation that has pages in 4 languages. In this lesson we examine the page structure of the demonstration site we’re developing.
Multilingual Website – Case Study Part 2 – Introduction to the Language Switching Functions
Multilingual Website – Case Study Part 3 – Demonstration Site Page Structure
Multilingual Website – Case Study Part 4 – Create Custom Post Meta
Multilingual Website – Case Study Part 5 – Add the Language Switching Function
Multilingual Website – Case Study Part 6 – Add the Language Specific Menus
Okay so in Part 2 of this case study, we’re going to take a look at the site that we’ve created to demonstrate this stuff and look at how I’ve set up the pages. And so if we come on over to the site and we go to the dashboard and we go to pages, you can see that I have an English home, French home, Italian home, and Spanish home as my main homepages or the main language pages. And then under each one of them, I have 2 different pages. The English version of them is 5 reasons why you should consider building your own website and WordPress business websites: 5 reasons why it’s ideal for small business. And then we just have the various translations of each of those articles. And so that reflects that page structure that we looked at here with English, French, Spanish as our heading and then these subsequent subpages. And so, the next thing that we want to do now that we’ve actually created sort of the basis for accomplishing this, the next thing that we want to do is add the custom post meta to these pages so that we can capture the information that we want to capture. And so, in order for us to do that, we’re going to use a plugin called Verve meta boxes.
