This is FAQ
Questions:
What is required for this mod to work?
After translation I get blank page - what is wrong?
After translation all text disappear - what is wrong?
I have SEO translation links on, I use vBSEO and main page is not translating - what is wrong?
What to do, to have translations links good for SEO consensus?
I have indexed pages from old translator (with hl=) - what to do?
I have indexed pages from old links type (with language=) and want switch to SEO links- what to do?
How do you get back to default language after you click a flag?
I have warnings in safe mode - what to do?
Can I add translated pages to sitemap?


Answers:
What is required for this mod to work?
- You must install it and configure it appropriatelly (please read parameters descriptions carefully)
- You must have installed CURL in your php. Most servers already have it. Just install this mod and if it is not working then ask your server stuff to install CURL. In meantime you can disable mod or remove flags so users will not be affected. If you get blank page for translation pages (it will not affect your normal pages) it means that you don't have CURL installed - just install it
- You must have installed ICONV in your php. Most servers already have it. If not an error will occur or blank page for translations.

After translation I get blank page - what is wrong?
Just read answer for previous question

After translation all text disappear - what is wrong?
2 possibilities:
- You didn't fallow installation instructions. You MUST configure at least Forum language option and Yandex Translations API Key. Just configure mod
- You set wrong Yandex API key - just set there appropriate value.

I have SEO translation links on, I use vBSEO and main page is not translating - what is wrong?
First, make sure that your .htaccess rules are OK - especially for forums with subdirectory in URL.

What to do, to have translations links good for SEO consensus?
You have to set appropriate option in Admin CP and change/create .htaccess file (NOTE: you can use SEO translation links even without vbSEO!)
for users without vbSEO
- If you don't have .htaccess file then use the one from do-not-upload directory in mod package - just upload it to your forum directory
- If you have .htaccess file, then add those lines there:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

for users with one of: Zoints SEO, Clogic SEO, TfSEO 2
Add into .htaccess this 2 rules BEFORE all rules for your SEO mod:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

NOTE: All those SEO mods works similarly so same rules should work on each of mentioned mod. But please be aware that at this moment it was tested only for Zoints SEO for vBET 3.x. So if you use vBET 2.x with one of mentioned mods please send post here to confirm it. Great thanks

for vbSEO users
Edit .htaccess file:
Above all rules to vbseo.php put this rules

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Now - if your forum use subdirectory in URL, then change 2 first rules adding your forum directory with leading '/' just after redirected=. So i.e. if your forum is in forum directory then you will have redirected=/forum/ and redirected=/forum/$2

I have indexed pages from old translator (with hl=) - what to do?
Just set rewrite rule in .htaccess - Google will know that page have new place and will reindex it without any loss

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I have indexed pages from old links type (with language=) and want switch to SEO links- what to do?
First make SEO links available. After that add this rule to .htaccess (before SEO rules):

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Note that this rule will also handle redirections for links from old translator (with hl=)

How do you get back to default language after you click a flag?
If you have set tracking option on, then to go back to your default language you must just click flag for your default language

I have warnings in safe mode - what to do?
Just turn off save mode - it is DEPRECATED in php and not supported in future versions. See here for details:
http://us2.php.net/manual/en/ini.sec...#ini.safe-mode

Can I add translated pages to sitemap?
You can simply integrate vBET with vBSEO Sitemap Generator (it is free) to include links to translated pages into generated sitemap.

Please note that instructions below will allow you to add into your sitemap links for threads translated pages. Because of performance reason those links will not be translated - there will be only added language code. Google will find real page anyway since you will get 301 redirect. Please note that it is not best approach - Google prefers to have final links in sitemap not redirecting one, but forcing translation of thousands links in all languages in the same time could kill your server or be threated by Google as attack (if links are not cached yet).

If you have any PHP programming skills you can modify instructions below to support also other parts of sitemap - not only threads URLs. Solution below will add translated links only for first pages of threads.

Integration instructions:
You just have to edit one file: vbseo_sitemap_functions.php in vbseo_sitemap directory.

Find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And place AFTER it...

For SEO links

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

NOTE: REMOVE YOUR DEFAULT LANGUAGE CODE and not supported language codes from $alanguages
Also if you disabled some languages in option panel you have to delete its codes too.

For links with language=

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

NOTE: REMOVE YOUR DEFAULT LANGUAGE CODE and not supported language codes from $alanguages
Also if you disabled some languages in option panel you have to delete its codes too.

NOTE FOR SITEMAP INTEGRATION
If you want to add to sitemap also links for other thread pages (if thread have several pages), then additional code must be added BEFORE:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Also in additional code you have to change 1 to $p.

Piece of cake

Good mod but I can,t see Arabic language . Is there a way to add languages ?

This mod did not need new database like other one to work !

Glad to see this.

Does this mod create the same type of URLs as the retired mod?

Or did you go with something else like:

Or

Or (better yet) can the user select the one they like?

Thanks!

It works very well, thank you.

It seems to also work in vBadvanced. I only have my portal page but it translated it nice and quick.

Time for me to dig a bit and see if I could make it work on other external areas of my site.

Arabic is 2nd language - just after Albanian

Yeap - this mod is fully integrated with vB

Server Loads - use queries by series and there should be no problem. Old translator made dozens of queries - one for each translation. This one can take also related data (which was added in same time) so there is much, much less queries to DB - also to Google

Thanks for nomination

Yes - It's using Google translator.

Advantages to other This one is FAST. It is fully configurable nad easy to install. It manage translation cache (optimized - batch queries for insert and selecting by series – remembers which translations are used together). It is alive (Dave put his one to graveyard). It track translation in URL's. It keeps yours domain during translation (one translator simply redirects to Google) so you have benefit in AdSense and indexing. It supporrts 42 translations languages.

Yes - I was thinking about

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Maybe in future First need to know that people like the idea and this mod to invest more time

Right now this mod is smart enought to add language param even if already exists some other param in URL (recognizes which one to use ? or &). So it's fully functional.

what about the vbseo warning for the previous mod

A notice to vBSEO owners.

As vBSEO.com Staff we don't advise using this mod for the following reasons.
This modification breaks the purpose of correct link consensus.
Translation quality is bad and would you want your site visitors to face shitty translated pages
Google advises to use correct url structure for translated pages which should be defined as domain.com/en/thread1 domain.com/de/thread2 . The important part in here is that each translation should have a unique domain. With this mod you are outranking your original url by creating duplicate version of the urls.
Using this mod is clearly agains Google Translation API TOS.

For vBSEO Owners more information can be found at http://www.vbseo.com/f4/support-mult...nguages-35168/
and are the translated pages stored in a db ?
