OK, so... I'm not getting any dramatic error messages. But we're not there yet.
I've installed the gtranslate folder in the www folder (binary).
I've set the cache to 777.
Created an .htaccess file (this worries me a bit).
Worked on the config file (this worries me a bit).
Created a robots.txt file (this worries me a bit).
Created a sitemap.txt file (this worries me a bit).
Had previously downloaded the free version (which seemed to work pretty ok).
Sadly... it doesn't work. The pull down menu shows. I can select a language, but nothing happens after that (and yes, I've put the plug in settings to 'pro' and to 'redirect'.)
There's quite a few things I might have done wrong somehow, but I'm reaching the end of my practical experience and knowledge... Time to call in the experts.. Help?
