When you add a new language to an existing site, WPGlobus will show the default language content for all posts where the new language translation is not done yet.
For example, if you had a post “
example.com/my-post/" in English, and add the French language in WPGlobus, then the link “
example.com/fr/my-post/" would show the English text and English title – until you enter the French translation.
With WPGlobus Plus, you can set the new language as “draft” and then the
"example.com/fr/my-post" URL will not exist and would show the “404 Not Found” page.
This works fine when you create a new post and choose which languages to publish and which to set as drafts.
With the existing site, however, all languages are “published” by default, which might cause a “duplicate” content issue with Google.
To resolve that, we’ve made a special tool in WPGlobus Plus:
Make sure you have a backup of your site. Incorrect usage would cause the entire site to become “404”!
Follow the simple steps:
- Choose the language
- Choose the post type (post, page, etc.)
- Click the link
- Repeat for other post types and languages.
