Polylang and Shapely Widgets


I am trying to build a multilingual site.

I created a static front page in Shapely with a few parralax widgets.

When I go to polylang settings I have one problem - Only the widget titles are available for translation in the “string translation” section. I don’t seem able to also define the widget content strings.

My second problem is that even the title I have translated, does not seem to change when I change the language on the switcher.

Any ideas of what I am missing?

thanks much!


Hi Mariano,

I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

We have not tested this theme with Polylang plugin so not sure about this but i think the Polylang plugin developer can help you in this issue if you contact them here https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/polylang

Also you can try using other WordPress multilingual plugins as listed on the below pages.



Best Regards,

Hi, I got the same issue with the Sparkling theme.
The Sparkling theme specific widgets (such as the Sparkling Social Widget) don’t get their title translated by PolyLang, although a translation is foreseen in the Polylang string translation configuration.
These Sparlking widgets are the only ones (on my website) with this wrong behaviour.

@Laurent This is old topic and related to shapely theme so to help us keep support thread separates could you please create your own thread for your question here https://colorlibsupport.com/c/sparkling/ instead of replying on others thread as it makes the thread messy and hard to read.

If you want to you can also add reference of this thread in your newly created thread.

We would be more than happy to help you on your new thread.
