Great!Good luck :)

The plugin looks great and looks like it’s just what I need! A quick question before I buy:

My business runs 2 websites, with virtually identical content, but one is meant for the US market, and the other one for Canadian market.

Localization is done not through a subfolder, but by having two separate domains: example.ca and example.com

Would the plugin work correctly if I list URLs that are on a different domain from the one where plugin is installed? Or does it require all multilingual/multi-local content to reside on the same domain?

Thanks!!

Hello Ollyanka, you can use it with different domains ( i used this plugin few months ago between a .it domain and a .com ), obviously you have to install it in both the domains. I’ve included some example in the plugin documentation but if you need help feel to ask after purchasing.

Perfect, thanks so much for responding so quickly!

This is great to have, but another implementation that would be more practical & useful would be to define the number of country sites possible globally, which in tern adds a panel with the relevant fields into every page & post on the site (similar to yoast) – so that one may place the relevant hreflang urls in context of the page you are creating/editing.

Leaving the field blank would default to a global default for each country site you define.

daext

Thank you for your suggestion everyinteract, that would be a more practical approach but I decided to keep the plugin setup outside the post editor to let the website administrator set urls that are not posts. ( homepage, categories, tags, archives, etc. )

Understand. But we’re now building a large multinational site using WP and this more integrated feature would be very useful for content editors. We would also want access to the data is collects (in external DB?) so that we may utilise it to enable page specific redirects when switching sites (so remain on same page if exists when jumping from one language to another). May have to roll our own.

Do I need to create each country specific page first i.e create pages like www.domain.com/fr/hello www.domain.com/ie/hello

and then add the href lang tags using this plugin or do I create just one page and the plug in will create the country duplicates and add in the href lang tags?

daext

Hello Colin, this plugin only add the hreflang in existing pages, so you have to create the pages targeted for different languages or different countries and then connect your pages with this plugin. Hope this helps.

Thanks very much!

Hello,

Thank you very much for your plugin. Is exactly I need.

I understand the “Conections” section of your plugin, but I don’t undertand the “Options” section. What information is required in this section? I know this section is about languages, but is not clear for me.

Thank you very much again!

daext

Hello taoteking2, in the “Options” section you can set the default values for languages and locale, your selection will be used in the “Connect URL” menu as a default value so you don’t have to enter multiple times the same default languages and locale.

Let me know if this is not yet clear.

If you like this plugin please remember to rate it in your Downloads section. Thank you.

Hi,

We are thinking to buy your plugin but we have few questions first. Our main site is in US and the whole content is in English. I want to target specific pages to specefic country, for example:

  • mydomain.com – EN-US
  • mydomain.com/page1 – EN-GB
  • mydomain.com/page2 – EN-CA

Is it possible?

Thanks

daext

Hello martynasm, yes, as you can see from the plugin screenshots you can assign to your pages a Language and a Locale and create custom combinations like EN-US, EN-GB, EN-CA or whatever you want. Hope this helps.

Default-user

I would support your plugin for an ability to set LOCALE like this: http://vertejas.me/simple.jpg

It would make much more sense in terms of usability and overall user experience.

I’m not sure this plugin works. I have installed and attempting to set multisite languages, but each time on save, the fields go blank.

All I need to do is add the hreflang tags to each multisite, is this possible? If so, what are the correct steps to accomplish, not entirely sure by looking at documentation above

site.com/ site.com/uk site.com/au

Hello harbingerlabs,

I’m not sure this plugin works. I have installed and attempting to set multisite languages, but each time on save, the fields go blank.

Which fields?

All I need to do is add the hreflang tags to each multisite, is this possible? If so, what are the correct steps to accomplish, not entirely sure by looking at documentation above
  • Visit the site.com back-end and through the Connections menu connect site.com/page-1 with the related version for british and australian users, repeat the same step for all your pages that have an alternative localized version.
  • Visit the site.com/uk back-end and through the Connections menu connect site.com/uk/page-1 with the related international version and with the version for australian users, repeat the same step for all your pages that have an alternative localized version.
  • Visit the site.com/au back-end and through the Connections menu connect site.com/au/page-1 with the related international version and with the version for british users, repeat the same step for all your pages that have an alternative localized version.

If you need more info feel free to contact me directly via my profile contact with screenshots, your website url, etc.

Hi we use 5 wordpress installations on differnt webserver – italy, england … Is one license enough for this setup ? Thx

daext

Hello sugardesign, based on my understanding of the “Regular License” with 5 different wordpress installations you have to purchase 5 “Regular License” because you are going to use the product in 5 “Single End Product”. If you need more info you can also send a ticket to Envato, they are the authority on this. Hope this helps.

Just came across this plugin. Good job.

It might be nice to add the option to specify an x-default http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com.au/2013/04/x-default-hreflang-for-international-pages.html.

Also thanks for linking out to my article from Search Engine Journal :)

daext

Thank you George for the appreciation and for the great article on SEJ.

The x-default attribute is already available in the plugin. ( it’s the first entry on the “Language” listbox )

Hi

Is it possible possible to have 3 french country on the same header with your plugin ?

Ex. mysite.com (Homepage) French from France French from Belgium French from Canada

Thank you

Carol

Hello Carol,

Is it possible possible to have 3 french country on the same header with your plugin ? Ex. mysite.com (Homepage) French from France French from Belgium French from Canada

Yes, through the “Connections” menu you can add in the header of the three versions of you homepage the target language and country, in your specific case ( based on the example above ) the generated output in the header would be something like this:

<link rel="alternate" href="http://example.com/ca/" hreflang="fr-ca" />
<link rel="alternate" href="http://example.com/be/" hreflang="fr-be" />
<link rel="alternate" href="http://example.com/fr/" hreflang="fr-fr" />

Hope this helps, if you need more info feel free to ask.

I just released a new version of Hreflang Manager ( v1.01 ) with support for the WordPress multisite feature. ( network of sites/blogs in a single WordPress installation )

Hi,

We need to add href tag for all pages under a specific sub directory. Is this possible?

Example: default = abc.com en = abc.com/en/ nn = abc.com/no/

daext

Hello OscarSE,

If you need to add the hreflang tag on all the pages under a specific directory you would have to manually add each page with this plugin, so if you have a limited amount of pages under that directory I recommend you to use this plugin, if you have an high number of pages under that directory a custom script that automatically adds the hreflang tag on the pages under that directory would be probably more appropriate.

Hope this helps.

I want to add 51 connections. It seems the plugin only handles 20. Is it possible to increase this?

daext

Hello, I just replied to your email.

daext Author

A new release of Hreflang Manager is available.

- version increased to 1.02
- a maximum of 60 geographical-targets/languages for a single connection are now supported ( instead of 20 )
- added an option that allows the plugin to work with HTTPS
- fixed php notices
