WPML support for Presentation page, p l e a s e

  • Author

    Love the Nirvana theme, but I was disappointed that I couldn’t use it with WPML for a trilingual site.

    Support for WPML would be very much appreciated, especially since qTranslate is no longer updated (it is not cmopatible with WordPress 3.9 or higher).



    You have my vote for this essential yet missing feature. I even offered to pay for it, but no response. So one more try to support (y)our cause:

    Yes, multilingual support please! (preferably plugin agnostic since both WPML as Polylang is used)


    Love the theme as well, but are getting stuck on translating the custom fields of the presentation page.



    I’m onto something great … managed to translate the presentation page ๐Ÿ™‚
    How? With the standard wpml-config.xml option that a good multilingual plugin should support.

    Since Nirvana comes with so many settings, it’ll take (me) a while to create the full wpml-config.xml file with all presentation items, but this just worked for me in a quick test:

    <key name=”nirvana_settings”>
    <key name=”nirvana_slidertitle1″ />
    <key name=”nirvana_slidertext1″ />
    <key name=”nirvana_sliderlink1″ />

    Save above text as wpml-config.xml and into your plugin folder (I use Polylang).
    Hopefully this weekend I have time to completely implement and share it.

    If you have time already, feel free to DIY ๐Ÿ™‚

    PS. You’d need to deserialize the nirvana_settings array first from the WP_options table/database.

    So happy! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Cheers Mike


    Thanks Mike that sounds really great!
    I tried installing polylang but then my site didnt work that well anymore. I decided to put the code you made in the already excisting wpml-config.xml in the sitepress-multilingual-cms folder which comes with wpml. However i see no changes yet. Do you think this method is not posible or am i not seeing it?
    How do you translate the frontpage now?

    Let me know, I really hope it works!


    Hi Jeroen,

    It truly -is- great ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just uploaded the finished wpml-config.xml file for you to grab with the instructions in a readme.txt that’s packaged in the .ZIP file on my download page:


    PS. What didn’t work well with Polylang? From all the plugins I’ve tried, it’s the only one that works out of the box without compatibility issues (at least with non-WPML plugins).

    Good luck and let me know how it works out for you (if you email, feel free om in het Nederlands te schrijven ๐Ÿ˜‰



    It works for me as well with the WPML plugin. Only had to put the .xml file in the root folder of my theme.

    Very nice Mike! I’m cheering out loud ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Duizendmaal bedankt!!!
