2.3.13 Updated link to Yandex API key
2.3.12 Google changed to Yandex translations
2.3.11 Added "Affiliate Program" parameter
2.3.10 Footer bug corrected
2.3.9 userip added to Google translation request + small bug fixed
2.3.8 Small bug fixed - now all supported languages can be chosen as forum default language

2.3.5 Important change - According to Google conditions referrer header must be added to each translation query - otherwise you can be banned by Google. Install this version to avoid any troubles.
Changes:
- Added referrer header for Google translation queries
- Corrected bug for returning to forum main page from translated page
Also according to actual Google conditions your "Powered by Google" information should have Google logo. So please change text for flags in your vBET configuration to something like this:

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

You can customize it but "Powered by Google" should stay.

2.3.3 Important bug fixed! And also some other bugs fixed
- Fixed bug with shifted results caching
- Fixed bug for URLs to javascript functions
- Fixed bug for not translating usernames in postbit

2.3.0 Great news for those without vbSEO
- Supports translation SEO links even without vbSEO
- Translate Google Maps (configurable)
- Little optimizations (i.e. included only necessary things for not translated pages)
- Supports several cache cleaning strategies (optimization for really big forums) and automatically disables cache for cleaning time to avoid read/write conflicts
2.2.1 Small bug fixed with returning to default language for main page and SEO links (happens only for specific vbSEO configuration, so you don't need to update if 2.2.0 is working for you)
2.2.0 Translation tracking is working even when redirection by some mod occures (configurable reaction time)
2.1.0 9 new translation languages added! Also:
- Redirect to user language functionality - configurable (disabled, forced, after asking user does he want to be redirected).
- Fixed bug for SEO links with forums acting like directories by id.
- Corrected several flags
Update note: if you use SEO links you must change .htaccess file according to description in first post. If you changed any vbseo.php rules un-change those.

2.0.2 Added option to set your forum main domain for tracking URL's in subdomains

With that, I do not believe I am missing anything.

Would you mind posting a complete .htaccess with all changes as you are suggesting?
For this version (the free one) it should be:

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


But if you will have issues with that you can also try this one:

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

Hey,

Thanks for the awesome addon. I have been using it for quite a while now. However yesterday it just stopped working.

Well whenever you click a flag you get this vbulletin error:


Invalid Forum specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator
Nothing has changed forum wise. I also upgraded to the newest version just to be sure. Ive checked htaccess files, vb enterprise options are config'd right and template edit wise its all fine.

Anyone else come across this problem or know what could be causing this?

Thanks

Hi,

I have done some further testing and found that your newest version has a bug somewhere along the way that is breaking the apache "DirectoryIndex" directive.

If I remove the lines from the .htaccess for the translator it is back to working without issue, as soon as I add them back, it breaks.

I roled back to 3.7 "vbenterprisetranslator_seo.php" and everything back to working exactly as it should be, translations working and the apache directive working.

Unfortunately, I do not have enough coding skills to even begin to figure out what may be wrong in the code, but something between the 2 releases has caused the apache directive to fail.

So we are back to running 3.7 for the moment, any ideas what might be causing it?

I would double-check your .htaccess, I ran into the same issue when I was playing around with the issue I am having with the .htaccess and the apache directives.

It it worked and suddenly stopped working, then I assume that something was changed in environment. Please re-check everything again. Disable vBET for while and check does issue still exists (if you are using vBSEO) - it can be issue on other level. Change link type for a while to with language param and check does it is working if no redirection is needed. Did you made updates of some other plugins?...

If you want my investigation there I will need access to your forum and FTP (can PM me). If not I will do my best to navigate you hoping that we will find the cause

Thank you!
Admin CP is not translated - there is no such need. If you want have your admin CP in different languages then just use vB languages.

What plugin exactly did you try to add (link please) and what was the issue? What vBET has common with that?

There is no any difference between vbenterprisetranslator_seo.php in 2.3.8 and 2.3.7...
Also THE ONLY difference between whole vBET 2.3.8 and 2.3.7 it is additional choosing options for forum default language in product file (just checked in Subversion).

Maybe you have broken package, or something goes wrong during upload on FTP...

Anyway - you can stay with 2.3.7 because 2.3.8 gives you nothing additional. I just incidentally miss some supported languages and those couldn't be chosen as forum default language, so I added it in 2.3.8, but you do not need it because your language was there before

I have a question about the idea of this.

I test the live demo and the translations are very good.

I see this would attract major traffic with Google in several languages, but how does this work?

I mean, if your forum in english and you start to attract allot of people that speak other languages then they would sign up and start to post in their own language. What then? Each message will have replies in several different languages in the original board.

vBET 2.3.9 RELEASED

Small but important release:
- userip added to Google translation request
- small bug fixed for url tracking for forums in subdirectory and addresses having this subdirectory

Why it is important? Some time ago Google wishes to add userip to request. It was clearly written that it is not obligatory, so I wasn't in hurry. Changed code and wait with release for some bigger issue.
But yesterday one user wrote on vBET forum that Google asked from him to add userip to requests before he will be unblocked. So it is added now

Enjoy and feel safe

So that leaves away the increased traffic now? As Google will know those are translated page and not index them?

Also, is there a way I can remove the footer? My site is commercial and I would like to use this product but I had to disable it because there are enough links in the footer already. I dont mind a small fee.

I have been running version 2.3.7 for some time and no problems. I just updated to version 2.3.9 and it caused an error in my Global.php. I disabled the program and error went away. I then imported the xml file for version 2.3.8 and it works fine.

Google know about translation before - it is even required by TOS to give on page information that it is translated. Translated pages are indexed. userip is not IP of your server but IP of user who send you request.

If you want to remove credit link please send me donation. PM me for details
