qTranslate and multilingual META tags

I use WordPress with qTranslate, but I needed to have multilingual META tags which qTranslate doesn’t support – so I wrote a plugin to do the job myself. It’s pretty basic, but I thought I would share in case anyone else needs something similar.

Plugin can be found on WordPress’ Plugin site here: qTranslate Meta at WP Plugin Directory.

For users of qTranslate META 0.9.1 and older, to make the plugin work on a “static” homepage you should change the title hook used from single_post_title to wp_title (in qtranslate-meta.php, line 29). As of version 1.0.0, you can now set this directly from the plugin’s setting page, without having to edit any PHP code.

Thanks
