Is there any incompatibility with WPML? I have used the plugin in a web without it and everything is correct, but in another where WPML is installed, the connections does not appear in the frontend.
there are no incompatibilities between the two plugins.
Please contact me via the support tab so I can give your more details on how to solve this specific problem.
Hreflang Manager has been updated to version 1.06, more information on the changes applied with this version are available in the “Updates” section of the item description.
To update please proceed as follows:
If you have any questions feel free to ask.
I have a presale question:
Can I edit all of my pages and posts on one click or should I have to edit all of my pages and posts separeted?
Thanks for fast reply.
you can specify language-targets and geo-targets from the Hreflang Manager Meta Box available in the post editor or edit your connections from the Connections menu.
Hope this helps, if you need more info feel free to ask.
in other words – there is no chance to edit all posts and pages once (with only one click for example)?
do you have a practical example where editing all the posts/pages at once and applying the same language or geo targets for multiple posts/pages is useful?
to my knowledge one has only to enter the hreflang for different languages in the head or not? My website doesnt have hreflang right now – therefore its more efficient if I can edit all posts/pages once.
the fact is that each page should have different values in the href attribute of the link tag used to implement hreflang, for this reason there is no way that with a single action you can implement the hreflang for the entire website.
In other words for each page a different href attribute (the reference to the different version of a page) should be provided by the website administrator. You can’t connect for example only the homepages of two websites, but you should connect each single page.
More information on the use of hreflang are available here.
Hope this helps.
Will my old connections be lost if I update all the files through FTP like you suggested? Thanks.
the connections are stored in the “[prefix]_da_hm_connect” table of your MySql database and will be deleted only if you perform the “Uninstall” procedure of the plugin.
Hope this helps, if you have any questions feel free to ask.
Bulk Add Connections
I’m in the process of setting up hreflang tags between 2 sites that share a common url schema.
As I have over 900 products, I’d rather not manually edit each product.
Is there any reason why I can’t export the xxxx__da_hm_connect table, add all my connections in bulk and import back into MySQL?
with version 1.06 you can import and export connections between different website.
Here you can find a video tutorial.
Let me know if you need more info.
Thanks DAEXT, unfortunately that approach doesn’t work when the other website is Magento.
I can confirm 2 things:
1) trying to create an import file in XML is horrible.
2) importing new connection records directly into the xxxx__da_hm_connect table appears to work. At least I have seen no adverse side-effects yet.
I don’t understand exactly the current question, please specify exactly what you want to do and in case which problems prevent you from doing that if you need a precise answer.
For technical support I also recommend you to contact me directly via the support, so we can attach files to the support thread if needed.
HI at the post backend there isn´t a field to set the language!
please make sure that the Hreflang Manager Meta Box is enabled by using the “Screen Options” tab available on the top of the post editor.
If you are editing a post that is not a post or a page please also add the post type in the Hreflang -> Options -> Meta Box Post Types option.
If this doesn’t solve please contact me via the support tab and send me a screenshot of what you see in the post editor.
I think this is a bug since last update. SO here you can see the options when I create a new post or edit a n old post http://www.bilder-upload.eu/show.php?file=64b6b0-1501497025.jpg
The options are also fine see here http://www.bilder-upload.eu/show.php?file=4fada6-1501497323.jpg
Please enter “manage_options” in the Meta Box Capability, Connections Menu Capability, Import Menu Capability and Export Menu Capability options.
The plugin wasn’t properly updated with the procedure suggested in the message above which announced the release of version 1.06. That’s why your options are not initialized.
I just rewritten the answer above because I noticed the empty values in some of your options.
If you need more info feel free to ask.
I am watching the tutorial and I do not understand how to configure it for the Spanish language. Please help. How do I set the language in Spanish and which is well installed?
Please help with how to make this work automatically?
Hello white_island, I just replied to your email. Please continue on that support thread. Thank you.
the plugin can produce an xml sitemap file or to add the hreflang tags is necessary opening one page/post at a time ?
you can implement hreflang through the Hreflang Manager meta box or through the Hreflang -> Connections menu.
Each connection should be manually added and the implementation of hreflang generated by the plugin makes use of HTML link elements in the page header.
The only doubt we have before buying and testing the plugin is:
How do we create a menu that would automatically change on each URL, so that clients can switch from landing page for country X, to country Y?
We want to include a country selector that would allow clients to change their country, visiting the corresponding post depending on the page they are visiting.
based on the marketplace statement it seems that after this question you have found and purchased the Hreflang Flags plugin, that has been created exactly for this purpose.
Let me know if you need more info on this plugin or on Hreflang Flags.
I have two questions ahead of ordering the plugin:
1) Is there any way to bulk add/apply hreflang tags rather than having to apply to each URL manually?
2) Is there a way to automaitcally add the hreflang tags to newly created posts? i.e. without user intervention
There is an “Import” and an “Export” menu to move the connections in bulk but the hreflang connections should be created at least one time in one of your websites.
2) Is there a way to automatically add the hreflang tags to newly created posts? i.e. without user intervention
If the URLs of the alternative versions of your pages if are not predictable you should necessarily add manually add them. If the URLs of the alternatively version of your pages are predictable you can create a script that writes the proper hreflang information in the head section of your pages without using this plugin.
Hi, I cannot find the tutorials to install the plugin. Thanks
the manual is available in the “doc” folder of the zipped pack downloaded from CodeCanyon.
hey there I have used the danish translation files for my site as my country doesn’t have a wp validator, but can this plugin change my hreflang from dk to fo – Faroe Islands? for now I just want faroese and not multilanguage, and don’t want to install WPML because it’s so heavy just for that little task
this plugin should be used only to add link tags with the hreflang attribute.
