Our website is currently broadcasting in Turkish. However, we changed the default language to English on the developer site and added the Turkish language option. We use WPML for this. How can I use your plugin on my multilingual site? Should I use a single forum in multiple languages at the same time or can I create a separate forum for each language? I have read some articles but they are all over a year old.
wait for the release of wpForo version 2 😉
Multi-board system: Allows to create multiple separate forum boards in the same WordPress website. You can create fully separate forums in different pages,
Multi-language forums: Using the multi-board system, you can create multiple separate forums for each language of your website. Each forum will have separate forum page, categories, forums and threads, but users will be the same for all forum boards.
Now, you can't use it. Wait for wpForo 2 soon.
Please explain, what exactly you're asking for, you're not asking for WPML compatibility, and you're not asking for having different forum page for each language.
wpForo 2 lets you have different forum pages for each language in your website. So when you change the language, the main menu of your website can contain a link to the corresponding language forum.
EN website menu: [Home] [Forum (/forum/)] [Contacts]
TR website menu: [Home] [Forum (/forum-tr/)] [Kişiler]
The /forum/ user interface phrases are in English, the /forum-tr/ user interface phrases in Turkish. Correspondingly, the forums and topics will be created in the same language.
It doesn't matter what Multi Language plugins you use, wpForo 2 allows you to have different language forum pages so when you switch the language you can display the correct language forum.
This is the way wpForo allows you to have multi-language forums.
