HEADER SWITCH from ENG to FR : how can I do that?

Recommended Posts

Hello! I've been working on this website for a client. Website is almost ready in French but then, he asked me to add an ENGLISH version to the website on the same domain.

So I created a MAIN page with two buttons : ENGLISH and FRENCH.

My question now : how can I have the HEADER in english when I click on the english button that leads to the english version of the website? and the HEADER in french when I do the same thing for the french version? I'm confused. For now, I only have the header in french and it is there on the eng version of the pages.

I saw some from here managing to it here : https://www.amorylujo.com/ 

Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

If you don't want to use Weglot (a paid subscription for multilingual websites) I would recommend this guide:

If you need help implementing this, you can reach out to me.

You should be able to have a single store. I think you can simply omit the /en/ on the URL and it will appear in both navigations.

Hey there! Do you know if it's possible to do the same with the footer? Same as the header, I would need a different footer for each language.

If you had two sections in the footer you could hide/show different ones on different pages with CSS in the page Header Code Injection.

Hey there, me again.

So I managed to omit the /en/ and /fr/ on the header so that I have an english only header with links to the english pages, and same for the french ones. My client now wants 2 flags in this header (US & FR) that go back to the welcome page but I can't link them if the link has a /eng/ or /fr/?
