    Can you please share your settings to get the rest of the buttons on your page menu to respect which language is selected? This is another common issue with thesis and qtranslate working together.

    I just wanted to clear something up.

    I’m using Thesis and qtranslate on a site and the problem I’m having is that the pages buttons on the menu do not pick up the titles I’m entering for each page. When the user switches between languages, the page buttons stays in the default language.

    Did you encounter the same problem and if you how were you able to resolve it?

    I use WordPress 2.9.2., Thesis 1.7 and qtranslate 2.5.6.. I changed all the codes mentioned above, but still my navigation menu appears in the defeault language. Any suggestions?

    I resolved the problem mentioned above. But still my mouseovers show something like this:
    [:en]Legislation[:nl]Wetgeving. How can I solve this?

    Superb solution.
    One additional problem with Thesis and qTranslate is that Thesis uses the slogan for the site as the H1 on the first page. This means that the first pages in all languages get the same H1. Is there a way to fix this? Just adding <!–:en–…… in the Slogan filed does not work.
