Howto translate my website information in Drupal

With the i18n module, it is possible to make a Drupal site multilingual, but the data such as site name, slogan, mission, etc. are not translated. But with a trick it is possible.

Adding Variables

Open the file: /sites/default/settings.php and add the following text:
/ **
* Multilingual settings
*
* This is a collection of variables that can be set up for each language when i18n enabled.
* These are the basic ones for Drupal core, but you can add your own here.
* /
$ conf [ ‘i18n_variables’] = array (
‘site_name’,
‘site_slogan’
‘site_mission’
‘site_footer’,
‘anonymous’,
);

Setting up XML sitemaps module in drupal 6.X

As part of setting up my Drupal site I installed the XML Sitemap ModuleTaken from the project page: “XML Sitemap automatically creates a site map that conforms to the sitemaps.org specification. This helps search engines keep their search results up to date“.  This is an important part of helping the search engines find my site and have an accurate list of the content on my site.  Because I am on Drupal 6 I used a dev version of the module because there is not a stable release available yet.  I am using the “6.x-1.x-dev” version.  Installation took me a little longer than I expected because I had to create a number of accounts with different search providers to obtain the codes that the module needed.  Here is a rundown of installing and configuring the module. (more detailed -albeit not entirely current- directions can be found here)
