    I had posted a question on 11/1 if you can either add languages like Portuguese or better yet if you could provide instructions how to edit the url string so anyone can add the language of their choice (which I think would be great as it would truly benefit everyone and not put the onus on you to keep adding languages). Can you please update us on this. Thank you.

  2. how come when i try to click the flags, it won’t translate? the widget shows, but it won’t translate!
