Suffusion, qtranslate: blog title and home link translation

Postby mtheo » 05 Sep 2012, 08:37

I am a big fan of Suffusion, and qTranslate as well.

I had the problem to display the blog title and description in two different languages. Moreover, I did not like that after pressing the “Home” link button, leaving a comment or using the search box, always the site was reset to the default language.

This morning, I have decided to find a solution. Since the solution I found seems general enough, I want to share with all of you and propose to Sayontan to merge properly in the next Suffusion distribution.

Mainly, I defined the function suffusion_home_url() for getting properly the home URL (based on the language selected by the user) and then, where it was needed, I substituted the call to the function home_url() with the new one. This is the main change to Suffusion 4.3.1:
