Upgrade to WordPress 2.3 with Language Switcher: Lessons learned

Well, it acutally WordPress 2.3.1, cause this version was out one day ago. Every blogger who use WordPress probably know that 2.3 has big changes. First, let’s look into the database schema: taxonomy, terms…hello, Drupal? Maybe, it will not long WP start call its posts as “Node”? I mean, WordPress database really changed a lot in this release; the nerdy-geeky names used in the WordPress database table reflecting that the method of manage content in modern CMS are becoming more and more abstract and complex also at the same time flexible. Other “big” changes including automatically inform upgrade information on plugins and core updates, built in tags and tag cloud support.

检查一下你的settings下的keywords里有没有对应的php函数名: _e 和 __。 我现在很少发双语的文章了,原因在我的另外一篇文章有说明: http://readtheweb.info/2008/05/11/wordpress-problem-url-encoding-tags-slug/ 如果你知道怎么解决那个tags的问题,还请告诉我哦。 我以前发文章时,当然不是自动翻译成其他语言的,而是手动翻译。

感谢博主的回复! Update from source解决了,下来又有个问题。 安装了插件,可是要发布多语言文章时,右边侧栏始终没看到语言选择项啊?是哪个步骤出了差错? 目前正在实施WP与online store的改造,很大可能用到多语言版本,完成发布后与博主分享。
