multi Languages

  • sagaroth


    Hello everyone and Happy New Year 🙂

    That is my problem,
    I have a multi-site project.
    Each site will have a different language.
    I would like to assign a bbpress language has a website, but I do not know how.

    How can I do?

    Thank you in advance 🙂

    ps: sorry for my english not so good: P

    This is more of a WordPress issue than bbPress, bbPress should function in whataver language the site is in correctly.

    This looks like a good start and quite a few people use WPML and bbPress



    Thanks !
    I will try WPML

    Oh BTW… WPML has an extra plugin to make it compatible with bbPress but no public download link, you need to ask them for this, why? I do not know you just do :/




    I’m currently struggling with bbpress/wpml and my experience so far:
    It works, using the unofficial wmpl-bbpress plugin – for 85%
    Each language have their own forums.

    Modifying the plugin (adding hooks for registration + lost password page) it works for 90% and I’m pretty shure that the rest of the issues with language switching can be solved…
    .. till yo begin to add bbpress plugins:
    working: GD bbPress Attachments, GD bbPress Tools, bbP Topic Views
    not working so far: mark as read, bbPress Unread Posts

    However, its unstable.
    Sometimes – on very rare occasions – topics appear on the wrong language fork.

    From there is no serious help – just search their forums and get the picture how they handle this issues.

    You may take a look at my test installation at , it will stay online for some weeks.

    I, by myself will probably set up a subdomain for the forum with ONE forum for all languages with sub_forums for the language forks.

    Best regards
