Hi,

I wrote to yesterday via the LSVRthemes profile, but I have just read that this is the correct channel for support, so I apologise for the double posting.

I am an English ex-pat living in Slovakia and am creating a site for a small town, where the languages on the front-end will be Slovak and English (Slovak will naturally be the default language, the content for which will be written by my Slovak wife). However, I would prefer that the back-end remains in English, so is it possible to have the back-end in English, but the default front-end language in Slovak?

Also, I noticed on the Other Notable Features section of the TownPress details that you have stated “Slovak translation included”. Does this mean that you already have a Slovak translation for all of the front-end menu items (such as “News”, “RECENT POSTS”, “RECENT COMMENTS”, “Search this site”, etc.), while remembering that I intent to keep the back-end language set to English. Please advise.

Many thanks,

David

Hi,

you can use the PM for support questions as well, nothing wrong with that. I’ve already replied to your message. Here is my answer, just for the record:

1.) ad EN backend, SK frontend:

this is not really a theme related question to be honest, this is more about WordPress itself. I haven’t ever did anything like that myself, but I did a quick search and found this plugin for example https://wordpress.org/plugins/kau-boys-backend-localization/

I am sure that if you search for something like “wordpress frontend backend different languages” you will find more solutions.

2.) ad Slovak translations

Menu items are part of the content, same as any other content (e.g. blog post), that has nothing to do with the .po /. pot translations. You can change those under Appearance / Menus.

The theme comes with the Slovak translation, so all the strings which can be translated via .po / .pot files only are already translated to Slovak.

Hope you like Slovakia:)

Hi Lubos,

Thank you for your super fast reply – I really appreciate it! I will certainly take your advice and checkout that localisation plugin.

Yes, I love Slovakia (I have been living here almost 20 years now) and although I am fluent in Slovak, I would still prefer the back-end to be in English if at all possible. I also love the Czech Republic.

Thanks again for your help!

David

Hi Lubos,

A quick follow up to my previous question…

I took your advice with regards to the plugin and it works perfectly, in that I now have the back-end in English and the front-end in Slovak. So thank you for the tip!

However, now I want to create an EN version of the front-end:

In Appearance/Customise/Language, I have set the Language1 Label to SK, the Language Code to sk_SK and the Language1 URL to the HomePage.

I of course want to set the Language2 Label to EN, the Language2 Code to en_GB, but what about the Language2 URL?

Do I have to create a new sub-directory, such as www.yoursite.com/en, where I then install a new installation of WordPress?

Or is there an easier way to do this, without having to install a new installation of WordPress on the domain?

Please advise.

Many thanks,

David

Hi,

you will need to use either a plugin like PolyLang or WPML or two separate WP sites (for example using the WP multisite).

I personally recommend the multisite option, because I am not sure about PolyLang but WPML will create a mess in your admin and may slow your site (and it is also paid).

Lubos

Hi Lubos,

Thank you for your advice regarding WP Multi-Sites.

WP Multi-Sites seems to be working perfectly, except for one thing: EVENTS

For some reason, when I create new Events, instead of creating the permalink: https://yoursite.com/blog/events/, like it does with the normal install, within the EN directory, the new Event is created without the Blog hierarchy, like so:

https://yoursite.com/en/events/

Any idea why this is happening? As it basically means that Events does not work within the EN sub-directory.

With best regards,

David

You got reply.

Hi Lubos,

I just wanted to say thank you for your help today (on a Sunday !!!) sorting out the EVENTS feature on the WP Multi-site.

If anyone else has installed a WP Multi-site for the purposes of a dual language site and has faced problems with the EVENTS feature afterwards – then the solution was just a question of deactivating and then deleting the Events plugin on the network, before then reinstalling the Events plugin. Now everything is working as it should do!

Thanks again Lubos for your excellent support !!!

All the best,

David

P.S. Just about to leave you a 5 Star review :)

Thanks!

Hi,

is there a way using the LSVR Notices Widget to display notices from a certain category and tagged with certain tag or tags?

Thank you!

Hi,

you can choose the category in the widget, however it is not possible to choose tags.

Hi Lubos,

After updating the theme and plugins today the right sidebar on all static pages has stopped displaying? Only on these pages….very strange.

Any suggestions on how I might remedy this?

Thanks.

Jason

As always….you are great! TY

The update is available. Don’t forget to update plugins as well. Please let me know if it fixed the issue. Thanks.

Seems to be working perfectly. Thanks again Lubos!

I tried many ways, but it still hasn’t changed.

Please update the theme to version 3.2.1.

Yeah, it’s ok. Many thanks. Good luck!

After updating the theme and plugins, the right sidebar in my homepage do not display, but in another page it is display. I deleted all widgets in right slidebar. Then add it again, but it still doesn’t show up on the homepage. Other sites, it appears. My web: chicucthuequan1.com

Have you updated plugins as well?

Make sure you are running LSVR Notices plugin in version 1.6.1

Yeah, it’s ok. Many thanks. Good luck!

Hey guys,

when i click to “Edit page” the website redirects me back to the Home page, why?

Hi,

where exactly are you clicking on the “Edit page”, in the admin, via admin toolbar on frontend?

Lubos

Yes yes, on frontend, via toolbar.

Which page exactly are you trying to edit? Some page like post archives can’t be edited that way, this works only on standard pages and posts.

Hi, I imported the demo data, and this page is my default: https://imgur.com/a/eb66HPP

Why isn’t as same as your homepage?

Hi,

images are not part of the demo import. You should also set up your side menu and Sitemap element. Please read the whole documentation. http://docs.lsvr.sk/townpress.wp

Lubos

I’d like to automatically send posts with a particular category, eg COVID-19, to Facebook. Is there an easy way of doing this?

Hi,

you will need a 3rd party plugin for that, check out this article for example.

Lubos

Perfect. Thanks

Hi – I’ve added Elementor to my site, as I want to have some pages act as marketing landing pages. However those pages crash with a ‘critical error’.

Is the theme not compatible with Elementor, any way I can fix that? Many thanks, Neil.

Actually never mind, it’s another plugin causing the conflict.

Hi,

glad you’ve sorted it out. Just for the record, the latest version of the theme is compatible with the Elementor.
