Gengo: Wordpress plugin for multiples language

Friday, August 1st, 2008

If you need multi language support for your Wordpress, go for it: It’s the best one of all which support multi language.

If you need like me to do some posts in one language, some in other, and later if you have time do some translations, then this is the only one which supports that as far as I know.

Well… the plugin it’s nice, I like it and it seems to support all it claims.

However there is a big important gotcha… if you implement this plugin, all your old url’s are going to start being redirected. As all links will change also in every place of wordpress, this will affect you as much as popular you are. In my case this is a new wordpress instalation so really don’t care, but if you have a thousand page indexed by search engines, this will kill your rank.

I’m now trying to join the developers group to try to convince to move all thos redirects to be permanent (301) and not 302 like they use now. In the meantime, I’m going to share a small temporary fix for this.

P2P for what? Google is enough

Friday, August 1st, 2008

Even when p2p network continue to exist and get bigger and bigger, I’ve not used one for more than a year, now I use google for download music.

A phrase between quotes in google means “Find exactly this phrase”. Therefore if you try something like
“Pink Floyd” “Dark side of the moon” you will find loads of pages strictly related to that cd, of course most of it will be pages to buy the cd or with lyrics of it.
