This FREE plugin from @rburgst extends the WPGraphQL schema with language data from the WPML plugin. In addition it turns off WPML default filters in order to be able to iterate over all posts regardless of language.

Adds WPML functionality to wpgraphql so that translations can be queried and WPML default filters which disable the listing of all content are disabled.

Note that the primary use case for this plugin is to be used together with Gatsby where you can perform all filtering of your content within the Gatsby GraphQL schema.

Since Gatsby pulls the whole content out of the wordpress database, this plugin will ensure that all translations of the translated content is being returned (instead of only content in the default language).

If you dont intend to use this plugin together with Gatsby be aware that you will typically have to be creative with filtering, see #8, #9.

In case you are getting issues querying data (i.e. http 302, or errors), please first try to see whether you can successfully query data without this plugin.

If it does not work without this plugin, then enabling this plugin wont magically heal your broken ACF config (see also #5). This plugin will only help in getting "more" content from your wordpress installation (which was previously disabled by WPML interfering with queries).


Due to the main use case of using this plugin together with gatsby some often required filtering options are not yet available, such as

  • filtering menus by locale/language (see #3)
