Hello, I have a multisite WordPress network, the “Hreflang Manager Meta Box” seems to be working on the base site but not the second site. I tested it on two different pages. I am on WordPress version 4.5. Thanks, Shadi.

Hello kodemann,

please contact me directly via the support tab or via my profile contact form with more details, in particular:

  • With “the “Hreflang Manager Meta Box” seems to be working on the base site but not the second site” do you mean that the “Hreflang Manager” meta box is not displayed or that you can’t see on the front-end the hreflang attribute generated with the “Hreflang Manager” meta box?
  • Have you enabled the “Hreflang Manager” meta box with the “Screen Options” in the post editor of your subsites?

We can speed up the process if you can create a temporary WordPress user for me so that I can verify the specific situation. ( obviously share these details only via email )

Yes, the meta box is showing but on the front end I cannot find the hreflang tags in the web page. Do you still need access to fix the issue or can you try to replicate with a multisite on WP 4.5?

Hello kodemann, yes I still need access to verify your specific situation because by default there are no issues with WP 4.5 and multisite.

Hello,

Sorry but I cant see how to add links correctly. Any video? Thanks

Hello dangeroux, I just replied to your email.

Hello. I have two websites in Wordpress, with two different installs. One in Dutch (http://site.mproof.com) and one in English (http://engels.mproof.com). Will your software work with this? Can you explain how I need to set it up, once I purchase it? Sorry, I’m a newbie to this.

Hello Chielemans,

  1. Install the plugin in both websites ( If your two websites can be considered a single end product a regular license is enough )
  2. Visit http://site.mproof.com and use the “Connections” menu to manually connect the pages of http://site.mproof.com with the pages on http://engels.mproof.com ( more info on the procedure are available in the manual )
  3. Repeat the same process on http://engels.mproof.com

If you need more info feel free to ask.

Hi, Does the plugin provide a CSV (or similar) upload functionality to reduce the time it takes to setup each of the alternate urls? Or is the manual approach via the connections page the only way to setup the hreflang tags/urls?

Hello punchdigital, I’m sorry but currently there isn’t a feature to import/export CSV files which included the data of the connections.

Hey! Does this work with Woocommerce&WPML?

Hello Jamesdunford, the connections generated with this plugin can be used with any URL of your website, the fact that you are using Woocommerce and WPML doesn’t affect the plugin behavior. If you need more info feel free to ask.

Hi. I’ve installed this plugin and it is working well, but I have just found a small usability issue. I changed the slug on one of the pages, and it wiped all the Hreflang settings for that page. So it seems the hreflang settings are stored against the slug instead of the page ID? Would be great if they were stored against the page ID so we could change a slug without it losing all the settings.

Hello jodamo5,

the connections are displayed in the Hreflang Manager meta box when the post permalink is equal to the “URL to Connect” value of the connection. For this reason if you alter the permalink of a post you have to update the associated connection from the Hreflang -> Connections menu.

The URL ( through the “URL to Connect” field ) is used as the key to determine where the hreflang attributes should be applied because homepage, archive pages, etc. don’t have a post ID.

Hope this helps

Oh right … that makes a lot of sense. I forgot I could access them in the Hreflang Manager. I just noticed they disappeared from the page when I renamed the slug. That’s great. Thanks.

Hi, I have purchased the plugin; but can’t find how to use it. Is there a manual or video? I basically want all visits from Turkey to go to http://seo7.net/ and all visits from all other countries to go to http://dir.seo7.net/ For example if someone writes seo7.net in the url area on a browser and if this person is in the USA, the English version, which is http://dir.seo7.net/ should appear. Is that possible to do with this plugin?

Hello huysal11,

Is there a manual or video? I basically want all visits from Turkey to go to http://seo7.net/ and all visits from all other countries to go to http://dir.seo7.net/

Before using this plugin I recommend you to read two things:

  • The plugin manual, available in the “doc” folder of the plugin pack downloadable from CodeCanyon. In the manual you can find technical information and pratical examples with images which cover situations similar to the one described in your message.
  • The documentation provided by Google here.
For example if someone writes seo7.net in the url area on a browser and if this person is in the USA, the English version, which is http://dir.seo7.net/ should appear.

The hreflang attribute determines the results of the search engines and doesn’t apply any redirect.

If after reading the documentation you need more info feel free to contact me directly via email through the support tab or via my profile contact form.

Thanks for the prompt response, this is very helpful. I will look into it and reach out if I have any further questions.

Hi there, i have a pre-sale question:

Does this work with WPML? My website is using https:// does this work to?

Greetz,

Hello BHuge,

Does this work with WPML?

The fact that WPML is installed or not in your website doesn’t affect the behavior of this plugin. With Hreflang Manager you simply manually add the hreflang attribute to your specified URLs.

My website is using https:// does this work to?

Yes, the https protocol is supported. You have to enable the “HTTPS” option available in the Hreflang -> Options menu.

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

Hi there, i’ve got one more question before i buy.

At the moment we get an error like this: “Google has determined that the rel-alternate-hreflang tag is incorrectly implemented on certain pages on your site. There seems to be particularly a problem with incorrect language and region codes or incorrect bidirectional links (if page A links to page with hreflang B, there must be a link back from B to A). Google uses the hreflang features to provide the correct language or regional URL to the appropriate users in zoekresultaten.Totdat you resolve the errors with the hreflang links, your website can not benefit from additional language targeting or region.”

When i pull the website to a hreflang checker it says that it misses the x-default tag.. Can i achieve this with the plugin? Generate a x-default?

Hello BHuge,

Can i achieve this with the plugin? Generate a x-default?

Yes the x-default option is available.

Please note that the message from Google says that:

  • At least one language code is incorrect
  • At least one region code is incorrect
  • Bidirectional link are not applied (you have to link back each page, applying the hreflang on a single version of a page is not enough, for more info search on Google “hreflang bidirectional”)

Before using this plugin please make sure that you understand exactly how the hreflang should be implemented, because this plugin doesn’t do anything special or automatically. What it does is that gives you the ability to add the hreflang HTML attributes based on your needs.

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

Hello,

I’m using this plugin with Woocommerce. I managed to add hreflang to all page’s and products. However, I wasn’t able to add them to the product categories. Can you tell me how to get this option in the backend?

I added “product-category” to the Meta Box Post Types. Is this correct?

Cheers!

Hello Athlox,

the Hreflang -> Options -> Meta Box Post Types field should be used to add the Hreflang Manager meta box on specific post types. The WooCoomerce products have “product” as the post type but the WooCommerce product categories aren’t posts, for this reason you can’t add a meta box with them (because there isn’t even a post editor for the categories) but you have to create your connections with the Hreflang -> Connections menu.

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

Hello and have a nice day! I have a question, it might be stupid! Is this only works for a Wordpress based website, or i could use it for a simple multi-language html website?

Thanks!

Hello mitsman, this plugin can only be installed on a WordPress website.

I just bought this plugin but I don’t see any instructions anywhere?

Hello cheekykev, the documentation is available in the “doc” folder of the zipped plugin pack.

If you need more info on how to use the plugin feel free to contact me directly via the support tab or via my profile contact form.
