Description

It would be nice if WordPress provided a standard option to define the language of the site linked via blogroll.

The given language could then be added to the links upon echo'ing them, using hreflang="xx" to indicate what language the linked page is written in.

I'm not sure that many people would want to use such a function. It'd just add cluter and confusion. This feature could be achieved using a plugin. Recommend resolving as wontfix.

While I understand the argument of probably not every WordPress user using that function, I do not see how it would cause clutter and/or confusion.

Anyway, if you think that it would be too few people using the hreflang attribute, it might probably be not worth the effort of implementing it into WordPress core ...

  • Owner changed from anonymous to pishmishy
  • Status changed from new to assigned

If you could describe how to see this feature fitting into the blogroll interface, that would be helpful.

Whenever something needs to be added that's optional - I start to question whether it's really needed in the first place and should be something left to a plugin. Adding a something that most users won't understand the purpose of is not the best idea.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

No feedback provided so closing as wontfix. Best implemented by a plugin.
