Anyone uses Transposh knows that the available widget to switch language is not so flexible to fit the need of any website: many web designers/developers want just to put some flag in the primary menu, or maybe a dropdown, if they use many languages in their websites; many would like to customize the aspect of the language switcher to fit the look\’n\’feel of their websites; and so on…
- Language Switcher for Transposh does the folowing things
- it gets default language and used languages from Transposh plugin settings
- it allows you to add as many flags as used languages are; in addition, administrators, authors and editors will see an Edit translation button as last item in the primary menu which will allow them to activate the Transposh Editor
- it allows you to choose between Transposh flags or flags provided by Language Switcher for Transposh itself
- it allows you to add to your language switcher menu item all classes you need: this allows you to make it look accordingly to your theme style using the same class your theme is using for navigation menu items
- it allows you to choose to use just simple flags or a dropdown, and if this is the case, you can choose if using a select or an unordered list to build your dropdown
- if you use an unordered list as dropdown, you can choose if the list items will show flag only, text only or both flags and text
- it allows you to totally customize your language switcher using the css editor provided
