Need some work done? Post a Project Today
I would like to modify the following Wordpress plugin:
It was designed to work with Wordpress, but not Wordpress MU
I would like to make it work with Wordpress MU:
Here are the problems I encounter when I try to run this plugin on MU:
This Plugin was designed for Wordpress (single), not MU. It works by accessing a Translation Engine, passing a page into it, grabbing the output, and saving it into a file in my website's directory that it creates.
The problem is that it only creates ONE set of files to cache the translated webpages. This was what it was designed to do because Wordpress Single only runs one Blog.
However, I need it to work with Wordpress MU, which has many blogs, and therefore needs a separate set of cached translated files for each blog.
Translated folder caches need to be separated for each blog. This plugin was only made for one install (not MU) so I need some way for the cached translated pages to be stored in a folder directory (on my server) organized by each different blog running on Wordpress MU.
Google blocked me from their Translation Engine. I suspect that it was because ALL my blogs running on my MU install attempted to access at one time. This is not supposed to happen because it bypasses the "wait time" function built into the plugin.
Would like it working as ONE install for all the sites, and blogs. I think Google didn't like that all the blogs were attempting to access at the same time. It would work better if there was one gateway accessing the Google Translation Engine for all the blogs running on MU.
There is only a "Wait Time" function built into this software. I suspect that Google will catch onto this later, because the system keeps pinging after the SAME amount of time.
I would like to modify the Wait time (time between Translation engine acessing) so that it is a random time period (in seconds) from 1 to 9000 seconds.
So for example that means that I can enter in "80 seconds" as a minimum time to wait, and 500 seconds as a maximum time to wait, and random time in between those 2 times will be chosen as the time to wait for accessing the translation engine again.
This should look more human-like to Google because the response times will be random.
Unless you're a super-intelligent programmer, you may need to install Wordpress MU on your server to test the output.
However, if you are a superb programmer, and don't feel like installing Wordpress MU on your server, I would be willing to have you try a hack, and then I will install and Test the code on my server.
I'm well-versed at running plugins so I will know what to do and what to look for.
There's no hard deadline for this project, and I'm very easygoing to work with. I just want it to work, and I'm willing to work with you (and test for you) to make sure that happens.
