Hi there, everyone! You may have already guessed what we’re about to tell you by just reading the title, but let us guide you through some fine details.
In the past few weeks, we’ve been working hard on a new release of Smart, our great multipurpose theme. Version 1.0.3 comes with a lot of improvements, fixes and new features (which we’ll cover in another article), but there’s one that stands out: Smart is now certified to be 100% compatible with WPML.
In case you don’t know it yet, WPML is the most complete multilingual plugin out there for WordPress, and it can translate your site into several languages. It’s the ideal choice if you plan to create a multilingual site.
The team behind the plugin tested Smart recently and they just certified the theme as multilingual ready. Smart 1.0.3 includes some adjustments that we think you’ll really appreciate if you’ve been using it with WPML, such as new styles for the language switchers, matching the general look and feel of the theme.
And now what?
If you can’t just take our word for granted, you can go and check the compatibility between Smart and WPML here in WPML’s site. Make sure you get a WPML version that fits your needs and start creating your multilingual site with Smart.
If you still don’t have Smart (but why wouldn’t you?), or in case you need an additional license for a new site, you can get it from ThemeForest right here.
Can you show me some demos?
Of course, we can! You can check a lot of demos on our demo site. And it gets better: You can even use our One-Click Importer, which is included in the theme, to replicate any of those sites into your own WordPress installation. Once it’s ready, you can work from there, without having to start everything from scratch.
If you want to know more about the One Click Importer, just check this article.
What’s in the near future?
We’ll keep working closely with the team behind WPML to make sure both our products are fully compatible with each other and make sure every issue that could come up is solved as soon as possible.
And even tough Smart is the fastest multipurpose theme you can find, we’re always ready to go the extra mile and keep working on performance improvements, so your site gets even faster with every major update.
We’re also working on some great new customization features, and extending and improving our compatibility and integration with popular plugins, such as WooCommerce, Visual Composer and Slider Revolution.
Now that you know all this, go update Smart to get full compatibility with WPML, and stay tuned for our upcoming releases 🙂
