WordPress problem: Url encoding on Tag’s slug.

When you define or assign tags in WordPress, here is what WordPress does:

1. Every tag must have a name.

2. Every tag must have a slug, the url of the tag.

3. By default, WordPress will automatically generate the tag slug based on the name of the tag you entered.

4. However, if either the value of the tag name or the tag slug is new, then WordPress will consider it is a new tag in the system.

So, a problem will arise, when your blog has non-western language characters or terms been used as tags. (more…)

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. This blog has run WordPress 2.2 smoothly for a couple months now, after a month the official 2.3 release, I finally sat down to upgrade my blog to take advantage of the new features. (more…)

hi, 为何我的poedit中Catalog->Update from source 不可用? 每次发布文章时,是自动翻译成其它语言的吗,过程原理如何? 翻译出来会不会不准? 谢谢回复。

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。
