This is my first post in Hindi and Marathi. Thanks to Anurag Bhatega 

यहा मेर पहला हिन्दी पोस्ट है |

हा पहीला मराठी पोस्ट आहे.

To make a post in Hindi or Marathi or any other Indian languages, you need to follow these steps:-

  1. Backup your wp-config.php
  2. Open wp-config.php in your favourite text editor
  3. Look for define(‘DB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’); & define(‘DB_COLLATE’, ”);  may be on 14th & 16th line and comment those lines with //. Your lines should look like this:-
    //define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
    //define('DB_COLLATE', '');
  4. Now you are 50% done. Now you need to type a new post in any language and your text will be visible in the language you typed it.
  5. Now the issue arrises is how to type in Hindi or Marathi while writing a post. Use the indic Google’s Indic Transliteration to type. There are many more plugins for typing in Indian languages available on WordPress site but I found the Google’s Indic Transliteration tool is better than others.

PS: You need to write a new post to see your indian language text, if you edit the existing post, it wont work.
