Set HTML lang attribute per post

Description

This wordpress plugin adds a meta box for specifying html lang=”” language per post.

The problem this plugin solves

WordPress allows us to specify site-wide language defaults like so:

<meta http-equiv="content-language" content="es">

The problem comes about if you have blog posts in various languages. Personally I write posts in either English or Norwegian. And since English is set as the site-wide language posts that are in Norwegian end up looking kinda weird due to weirdly placed - (hyphenations).

Solution

The solution is to add more specific html lang attributes when needed.

<article id="" class="" lang="vi">

For example this specifies that the post is in Vietnamese. This plugin enables a meta box when editing posts where you may specify the post’s language.

Contributing

This plugin was made in a jiffy. But by all means do suggest improvements. For instance the plugin obviously lacks testing code.
