I can’t configure a second language for the main static page. I am using the Polylang plugin. When you try to create a home page in a second language, a message appears: The chosen static front page must be translated in all languages.January 25, 2019 at 6:47 am #12650Grace ThemesMember
Please use qTranslate X WordPress plugin to create your website in multiple language

thank you very much!January 30, 2019 at 6:02 am #12720Grace ThemesMember
You are most welcome!October 29, 2020 at 2:32 pm #26702
qTranslateX has not been maintained for several years and the author does not intend to resume his work on it, but it is already creating problems with the new versions of WordPress and SEO. Do you envisage any plugin that will make the first page compatible with Polylang? (I personally use PowerClub, a wonderful theme and I don’t want to part with it because of the multilingualism).
Have a nice day!

Please use the updated qTranslateX plugin

I could, but I wouldn’t want to 😉
In any case, I like your theme PowerClub so much that I might put up with the monolingual first static page at first, while someone else figures out how to do it if you don’t want to – I’m not a programmer.
Here is a screenshot of the difference in loading the site with qTranslate-XT and Polylang. Also, when I have qTranslate-XT there are problems with the SEO that I don’t see how I can solve – for example because both languages are in the same document – I have to be able to address the same document to completely different target groups of people, even from different countries – metadata problems start, etc.
But even only the difference in loading speed itself is impressive, and I have been struggling with the low loading speed for several years and I have done everything possible to speed up the site – image optimization, delayed loading, gzip compression and what not – the sensitive difference appeared first time when I changed qTranslate-XT with Polylang.
Polylang also has drawbacks and difficulties in the beginning due to a completely different principle of operation, but I guess they will clear up over time, since Polylang is one of the most used plug-in for this purpose.
The transition to it was not easy either, but the result is worth it.October 31, 2020 at 4:27 am #26733
It is not possible to translate the homepage sections text content with Polylang plugin.October 31, 2020 at 5:45 pm #26746
I do not think so. There are no impossible things for you. If you wanted, you would do it and you will have the most quoted themes in the world of WordPress. There are many other, also specific static first page themes that have already made them compatible with Polylang – are you more incompetent than competing companies? I do not believe!
Have a nice day and good luck!

That’s right, but the shortcodes is not available in Polylang plugin as like the qTranslate-X to translate the homepage sections text content, slider title/description and other button texts.
