For the Multilanguage plugin, we would like to display text links with the language name (“English | Spanish”) rather than country flags (in this case U.K. and Spain) for each language. Any convenient way to do this?
You should update your theme, copying the template file in your theme and adapting it : https://github.com/patrickmj/Multilanguage/blob/master/views/shared/common/locale-switcher.php
Brian, I personally think it’s a good idea to use language names instead of flags (many have already explained why, see f.e. http://www.flagsarenotlanguages.com/blog/).
In order to save space, you might want to consider using two letters codes ([EN],[ES]), with the full name available as a tooltip. Or, at least, to use the spanish word for Spanish (Español), instead of its English translation.
Hope this helps.
Thank you both, yes, this helps a lot, and I’ve already got it working. We are aiming for something like the New Roots/Nuevas Raíces site which implements the switch nicely.
