Multi-lingual steps by steps
New in 1.7 - Associated menu items
- Category: Multi-lingual Joomla
It is now possible to associate menu items in different languages.
When a menu item, let's say tagged to fr-FR, is associated to a menu item tagged en-GB, if the Language Switcher module is present on the page, clicking on the en-GB flag/name redirects to the en-GB menu item and reciprocally.
If a menu item is not associated, the behavior will be the same as in 1.6, that is redirect to the Default Home page in the language concerned.
This let's therefore the choice for the webmaster to associate or not, item per item.
- Activate the Language Filter plugin and make sure that "Menu Association" is set to "Yes". Save the parameters. Edit.
- Edit one menu item to which a language is assigned.
It is not supposed to work if the menu item is set to "All", for obvious reasons.
- A new slider called "Menu Items Associations" is now displayed.
Each Content language created on your site will display in the slider with a combo box where you can choose a menu item in that language to be associated.
Just choose menu items, for one language or more.
A menu item to which is assigned an unpublished Content language can be associated, but the menu items to which it is associated will not display that choice until the Content Language is published.
