#1892 closed enhancement (maybelater)

Allow bbPress slug changes to reflect locales

Description

When this whole support forum migration is done, it'd be wonderful if we think about allowing each Rosetta site to change the bbPress slugs to reflect the locale being used.

Change History (13)

I don't think we should allow this. Having the same slug on all sites makes it's easier to switch from one site to another because we only have to change the subdomain.

I don't see that as something relevant. Who is the "we" in that sentence?

The primary URLs would be the same, i.e. https://**.wordpress.org/support/

The forum and topic slug URLs can be localised as part of bbPress, e.g.

This: https://nl.wordpress.org/support/topic/veranderd-forum-mooi-maar-verdwaald/
Becomes: https://nl.wordpress.org/support/onderwerpslug/veranderd-forum-mooi-maar-verdwaald/

@netweb is right. I'm not talking about the first part the permalink, but pretty much the rest of what bbPress uses. Basically all of these:

This is under discussion in #bbpress2976.

It's discussed over there for new installations, but that's not what this ticket is about. This proposal is for the Rosetta support sites after the migration is done. IMHO warenting to keep this ticket open.

I've looked at the existing "parent" blog at https://nl.wordpress.org/ and found the following behavior.

An actual category link:
https://nl.wordpress.org/category/wordpress-nieuws/

However, options-permalink.php gives the following example of a category link using the default category slug:
https://nl.wordpress.org/onderwerpen/geencategorie/

I'm not sure that WordPress core has a set behavior around translating slugs, so I'm reopening this ticket.

FYI: The Dutch forums user profile slug appears to have changed from users to user

bbPress' default user slug is users:

  • Works: https://nl.wordpress.org/support/user/wp-ginfo/topics
  • Broken: https://nl.wordpress.org/support/users/wp-ginfo/topics

Just to confirm, I did not touch any of the settings.

Unless there's a compelling reason to do this I think we need to close it as wontfix.

I'm closing as maybelater - translating URL slugs so far hasn't been something we've been able to do nicely.

When core adds support for translated content, we can review where WordPress.org is then.
