View Full Version : Rejected Control over which forums are translated

It would be a good feature if you could control which subforums are translated for which languages.

Or simply the abillity to block certain subforums from translation generally. Then you could have the "good" forums indexed first by Google, and save the others for later.

Fx. if certain subforums have a very high CTR for AdSense while others have very low CTR.

We will consider this idea.

At this moment we see some issues with this. In example users can be confused - translation tracking allows them to go to different places and suddenly there is surprise and redirection to forum default language. It can looks like error...

After consideration we decided to stay in one default forum language model. It is because we provide alternative for forums which have 2 main languages or more.

So - if you just want to block some sub-forums form being translated you can use filter in Admin CP -> vBET -> Translation Options -> Ignore URLs.

And if you want to have whole forum translated appropriately when posts are already in different languages, then you have to choose default language and use vBET robot to automatically wrap all old messages into lang BBCode. This way all messages will be translated correctly :) Please note that the robot doesn't exist yet - Radek is working on it right now and we should provide it soon.

With this solution there is no need anymore to know which forums are in which languages - the idea is to allow to write everywhere in every language :) So we prefer solution which will automatically mark old messages written in different language, so each post in whole forum will be translated appropriately.
