Recently, we announced that Polylang is now compatible with Shifter. Since Polylang is cosponsoring WordCamp Europe, we thought we would take the opportunity to go into further detail about what Polylang actually does, and why you may want to use it with your Shifter site.
Polylang, as implied by the name, is a multilingual plugin for WordPress. That means that you can provide your site in several different languages at once. But beyond that, Polylang also allows you to use multiple languages for posts, pages, media, categories, tags, custom post types, custom taxonomies, widgets, navigation menus, and even URLs. Polylang will also automatically serve the appropriate language based on a users location, so no need to worry about frustrating non-native speakers of your default language. Polylang also includes unlimited languages and language packs that are kept up to date automatically. One of our favorite features is the extremely easy SEO integration. It’s even easy to integrate Polylang with popular SEO plugins like Yoast.
To learn more about using Polylang with Shifter, be sure to check out our original blog post.
Polylang also offers a free version, and the premium version has a lot of extra features so you can easily give it a try yourself.
See you in Berlin!
