How to enable language selector

In sites that have the multi-language function enabled it is possible to display a language selector on the front end of your site that displays a list of pre-selected languages that are available to be selected by your site's visitors.

When a user selects a language from the selector the page reloads with the prefix of the language that has been chosen.

As an example if the user selected the spanish language for a page that has the title my-new-page:

eg http://www.mysite.com/my-new-page

It would reload to be:

http://www.mysite.com/es/my-new-page

  1. Navigate to the appearance screen in the dashboard.
  2. Open the footer settings panel in the left hand side.
  3. Click the option to enable the footer language selector
  4. Click save changes.
