i am using WPML which adds /?lang=he to the URL. thus, after entering my info in the registration form and clicking next, its redirecting to /?lang=he/?page_id=789

Have you tried using qTranslate? I’m not sure we can get this corrected quickly as it’s a specific conflict with the WPML plugin and we haven’t done any testing with that plugin and can’t guarantee compatibility with other plugins. i’m curious if qTranslate works differently or how they handle it and if that would work instead. I may also want to get Sidney to take a look to see if we can move our plugin’s priority up the queue or something. What happens if you swap those? (e.g. /?page_id=789/?lang=he) or use an ampersand in between (e.g. ?lang=he&page_id=789 or ?page_id=789&lang=he). Have you tried contacting the developers of WPML and seeing if they can resolve the issue on their end (e.g. making it so their lang= always happens at the end of the url)?

Hi! I am using WPML too, and I can suggest to choose the option of having different languages in directories instead of the option: Language name added as a parameter

e.g. having http://url/en/ instead of http://url/?lang=en

It’s in the Languages – Language URL format section of WPML.

I’m using WPML too but with different domains . WPML and Espresso don’t play well, but in our case it’s not so bad because 90% of users are on the French side and the English pages are still usable. Better compatibility would be appreciated to make it all look more seamless (we won’t be moving to qTranslate).

Devs, to add an argument to a URL query string, use the WP function add_query_arg. It Take care of adding arguments and manage if there’s already query arguments there.

Guess I’ll start a few trac tickets in the days to come. I need EventEspresso to work with WPML, and I’m a WPML wizz.

Devs, please implement what Charles offered :^)
