I am using a WordPress 3.8 installation with qtranslate, and everything is working except for the recent posts titles. Qtranslate displays the titles with all languages after each other. Like: English title German title French title

The code I am using to display a list with recent post titles is:

$recent_posts = wp_get_recent_posts();
foreach( $recent_posts as $recent ){
    echo '<li class="lastposts"><a href="' . get_permalink($recent["ID"]) . '" title="'.esc_attr($recent["post_title"]).'" >' .   $recent["post_title"].'</a> </li> ';

I have googled for this problem and it seems like Qtranslate does not work with post_title. How can I make it work?

Qtranslate works probably with a filter on the_title. So you have to use functions that make use of that filter, not the raw post title.

Example, not tested:

foreach( $recent_posts as $recent ) {
        '<li class="lastposts"><a href="%1$s" title="%2$s" >%3$s</a></li>',
        get_permalink( $recent["ID"] ),
            array (
                'post' => $recent["ID"],
                'echo' => FALSE
        get_the_title( $recent["ID"] )
  • Thank you very much! It tested it and it works perfectly. Really appreciate your help. thanks again, i have been messing with this for hours. :)
