New translation group feature in 2.0.1

5 years 5 months ago #35020 by Rooney
Hi,

this is not really a tutorial but more the description of a new feature in 2.0.1.

With 2.0.1 the following features for translation groups were introduced. If an article is associated to another article in a different language a flag of the other language is displayed in the article list. clicking on the flag opens the corresponding article. Cool!

Another cool feature is that a (!) is added next to the flag if the corresponding article in the other language has been changed!

Just thought it might be interesting to some of you...

I have not yet tested it with more than one language, but I guess just all the corresponding flags will be displayed!

Well, I think that now FlexiContent is even a serious considerable replacement for Joomfish or similar solutions, even if one does not need a CCK!

1. About items translation yes,

For other components etc you still need Joomfish or Falang

2. About FLEXIcontent fields, the label is filtered via JText in v2.0.1, so you can add translation in your language file, e.g. use language file of your joomla template of FLEXIcontent template,

3. About article associations of J3.x (and of Joomfish for J2.5) we will have them in sync when J3.x version comes out (end of next month ??)

Regards

Problem with the current JTEXT implementation in FC is that the language string gets indexed, but the actual translation should be in the search index. I consider this a "bug by design" or is there something I can do about it?

Hello

ok,

just please clarify where is this JText string?

e.g.
-- is it in item's title ?
-- is it in the values of a select field, etc ?

My answer got deleted ... therefore here again:
The lang string is indexed instead of the actual translation when you put lang strings in a fields "Field elements" input box like:
1::COM_FC_JM_APARTMENT_AND_HOLIDAY_RENTAL%% ...

Hello
This is fixed in v2.1.0 r1774

but not this will include language strings added for FLEXIcontent and not for other components !!,

so your language string should be added with Joomla language manager
-- for both admin side and for client side
