It has been re-released, please update your link > vB Global Translator - Multiply your indexed pages & put search traffic on autopilot - vBulletin.org Forum
New database system, script now has...
Another problem is Will everyone has a different opinion, you should do this but you need to get someone else to do it, that someone else says no, you need to do it like this... If I'm honest I'm 5...
Finding someone is easier said than done. ;)
Something like memcached? One of my coders thinks we should use that on it's own, no MySQL whatsoever... I love to hear your thoughts Will...
Turns out MySQL cannot handle the big sites, read/write access becomes way too slow.
Were looking at txt file caching like your script now Will, that should be fine speed wise and with the API, no...
Agreed Will, please remove it, i cannot recommend it as you say i do.
I spoke with the guy but never got round to using it.
Yeah, the db caches sentences between tags, rather than full pages, this also eludes the page limit cut off and that is why storage is low, the template etc is called via the normal cms methods.
vB Global Translator - Multiply your indexed pages & put search traffic on autopilot - vBulletin.org Forum
Currently it is only for vB.
Actually ive coded my own, using the Google translate API so no ip bans or css/code issues. Also running alongside MySQL so no issues with disk space. :thumbsup:
Website Translator - Online Translator : Translate any website into 24 languages
What has happened to your script then Will?
I have one, seems to work just fine on some of my other sites. It's just extremely frustrating to have trusted someone and used their product for them to just stop updating it and/or supporting it...
I'm at a loss, just being ignored now. Time to jump ship and use a different script I think. Thanks a bunch.
I'll shoot you a PM of an example URL Will. Thanks.
Will, was kinda hoping you'd have something to say, the current script is not caching correctly, ads and images do not display and the css/formatting is all screwed.
Hi there, just tried the new version, links fixed and links to other internal pages work, thanks. But all the formatting is messed up, images and ads are not showing on the translated pages as well...
Hi Will, any update on this, many thanks.
I have not changed anything, but since 9th May the pages generated wont display my ads and all the links have "&rurl=translate.google.com" added to them.
Any advice welcome, thanks.
Is your script still working, mine stopped dead.
Shows the same error I get, did you know?
Talking to myself here... It's broken again, thought it was a ban but it's dead on fresh domain and fresh IP.
Think it isn't cleaning up &usg= parameters correct.
Any ideas will? Before I start changing server ips etc to check it.
I think it may be an ip block but not 100% sure.
When that error occurs, is the page still cached, and only re-cached 30 days later?
Can I add meta=noindex to the error page?
Thanks, that makes sense.
Can you explain this error to me, now doing it on all pages, thanks.
Code: -2 (Translator returned status '302'...
Well real visitor goto the right place, I thought robots used headers, so that was my concern. You can enter any /en/ url into a header checker and it 301's to the translate folder.
Also, I have perfect w3 validation, yet translated pages have 90+ errors. I dont understand why as the code should be unchanged.
Unfortunately I have another error.
The /lang/en/ that is 301'd to the regular language, the 301 is not correct, header checkers show /lang/en/ is being 301'd to www.domain.com/translate/g/en/
Think I got it!
New vbseo adds rel="canonical" to page headers
On the translated pages the lang/country/ folder is stripped from the rel="canonical" URL.
So all the translated pages are...
Yahoo has already indexed loads and is sending traffic, Google not 1 page.
I know something is up, it just doesn't feel right. It is not indexing the pages.
48hrs and not a single translated page indexed, which is odd, seeing a Google normally picks up new pages sometimes within hours.
Not much I can do other than wait but something doesn't feel...
Ouch, 6k a month is a tidy sum.
Been checking the wordpress blogs running N2H's mod.
Seems some get de-indexed and some don't.
I guess if Google de-indexes the lang folder ill just rename...
What is the default of $translator_cache_days
So what you are saying is the translate ban/unban will effectively regulate the speed the pages are created and thus the speed Google picks them up....
Are you sure? I mean when I had the css and ad errors I had to delete the cache to get the pages to display properly after I fixed the issues.
Also wouldn't that be a huge server/google translate...
Thanks, one other thing, how long is a page cached for, does it get re-cached after x amount of days?
Fixed the ads now too, just pointed the iframe to load the php files on another of my domains.
All good to go, nice one! Thanks.
Thats the iframe, in that iframe loads a php file, in that php file is my ad companys JS.
I do it so if their server goes down my page loads dont hang.
The translate script is trying to...
The script is trying to translate my ads, which load in an iframe>php.
php is blocked in htaccess but no luck.
Also the css is not loading on translated pages. Thanks.
No problem, i can still run it and see if there are any traffic benefits in the meantime. Google can still do it's thing.
Getting there, thanks again.
That fixes the link, but, say you are looking at my root in german, you click the link and it goes back to english.
Is that normal or should it navigate to the next page in german also.
Does the funny links on the root too, with all my htaccess removed, think it may be the script again, sorry.
If I translate my root; Then try and navigate to any other page the links are broken.
"&prev=hp" seems to be being added to the end of every URL.
I'm off to investigate.
On first glance, works perfect!
Thanks you so much, this has made my week, thanks for sticking with me.
2 PMs sent, thanks again.
Right, but FTP or Plesk?
Sure, what info do you need?
I just installed on a fresh domain with nothing other than a index.html
Same 403. I think this is a script error or the installation guide is wrong.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure those apache errors are to do with vbseo.
But that should not interfere when trying to translate just my root.
I dont have that kind of access, its a vps not a dedi.
I have tried the script numerous times since I reset the log.
Thank you Will.
That is as far as I can tell, what should a look for, shall I upload it and maybe you could take a peek?
Nothing in the error log to do with this script.
both are on the root.
You don't have permission to access /translate/g/ on this server.
<url removed> - error:403
My root is unmessed with, all i have is a index.html so it should be pretty straigthforward.
Yeah, even on my root i get 403.
I created the /g as per the instructions and 777'd it when i installed.
Probably best if i post in my own thread rather than hijack :/
I realised I have a htaccess in the subfolder my forum is in, if I remove that i get the following error.
The requested URL...
I've spent weeks trying to get this going, gone over everything, installed it to the T and still get nowhere. Arrgggh! lol.
The US flag redirects to home, so some of it must be working (the /lang...
God knows then, dam thing is driving me nuts.
Not sure how to check, will hit up my host.
In the meantime in tr_config do i just add my domain or the subfolder too?
Nope, deffo a 404, header checker and 404 stated on the page confirms.
I get the same even if I remove my own htaccess files.
I changed the tr_config, but i still get the 404.
Sorry to be a PITA Will.
It throws a 404 error when I click any of the flags.
Also it was not working with Yahoo either, was this fixed? I get a 404 error with the new version also.
Same here, error 404.
Thanks for the reply Will.
That's all I needed to know, I don't need hand holding, afterall this is a free script. Just wanted to know what the error codes mean and by the sounds of it - it's the...
I thought this forum was for support.
What I dont get with these services, and I have used most of them, is they claim to submit to 1000's of sites, yet I only ever see 50-100 links at best reported in yahoo site explorer and goog WMT....
I really would like this working. I can pay if anyone is that way inclined.
On my first go I was installing with some editing to remove the lang/ylang folder.
Now I have decided to keep it simple and follow the instructions to the T.
Yet I still get this error with...
I removed my htaccess files and the same error occurs.
Yeah, all my htaccess does is rewrite non-www to www.
Any further help welcomed.
Mine hasn't been changed, it's standard.

Thanks for the reply, it's convinced me to give it another shot.
I get the follow error on Google;
Code: -2 (LANG2: Translator returned status '302'...
I have set this up and seem to get the error where Google thinks it's translating from english to English. I will try again later.
That aside I started reading more here and a thread about...
