Since the beginning of this blog I’ve been using a WordPress plugin called Gengo, which allowed me to mark one post as the translation of another one. This allowed non-Portuguese speaking visitors to see only posts in English, and Portuguese-and-English speaking visitors to see posts in their preferred language. Unfortunately, this plugin suffered a lot from not being part of the core WordPress, and on time the maintenance became a nightmare and the developers apparently dropped it. Gengo is not compatible with the latest WordPress for a few years now, and it started breaking a few administrative features. I decided this is the time to pull the plug, that is, remove Gengo.
This would break links to my blog, and that’s why it took me so long to uninstall Gengo. But I decided to read the fine documentation and search the web, and finally after a little trial-and-error I managed to write a .htaccess rule to redirect incoming links to the new URL (without the previous pt/, en/ pt+en/ or en+pt/ suffixes). Not bad for a medical doctor! 🙂
