How to change the language form “en-US” to “en” by wordpres bogo


WordPress bogo has been installed
You can edit the theme of wordpress

The flag display or hide

Bogo’s short code will show links to other languages.
The flags will be displayed automatically.

In some cases, you don’t need flags.
Let’s hide it.

Open the functions.php in each theme’s folder.
It is generally in the following place.

wp-content/themes/”theme name”/functions.php

Write it.

add_filter( 'bogo_use_flags','bogo_use_flags_false');
function bogo_use_flags_false(){
 return false;

You return false with add_filter, the flags will be hide.

It’s seems good.

Change the displayed text

For example, if you change the language from en-US to en,
you feel strange that English text is still “English (United States)”.

From here, I will show you how to change the text from “English (United States)” to “English”.
Of course, you can also change the something another letters.

Open the functions.php and write this.

add_filter( 'bogo_language_switcher','replace_bogo_text');
function replace_bogo_text($output){
 return str_replace(' (United States)','',$output);

Actually this function is quite a power technique.
It replaces the whole result generated by [bogo].
I tried to find out the more smart method, but I think that this is the best for now.

You can see that the text is changed.

Change the short code from the foundation

There is a method to change from the fundamentally rather than a change like a patch.
That method is to override the function to generate short code in the bogo plugin.

When large-scale changes, you can customize more finely using this method.
Although I don’t write it in this article, it is written in the following site in detail.

(It is written in Japanese)


Enjoy your wordpress life.
