I have used the WebsiteBaker Multilingual Switcher 1.6.5

After klicking the link, the previously done assignment is gone. I do not think this is the originally intended functionality. Does anybody know what this link is intended to do?

if you install the module on a working system (maybe with 20 pages), the install progress update the new database field "page-code" with the page-ID from every page
But if you add a new page, the system set a 0 (zero) to this database field, you have to go to the page settings and select a target page from the main language tree

when you start a project with a installed multi lingual module from the begin and add all your pages, every page has the page code "0", but the script doenst work with a target page-id == 0, it needs the real page-id from the target page or the page-ID from this page self

The Link "page-code" set all this page-code's from zero to the page-id from every page, so that multi lingual can work without problems
but.... its also a RESET - all previously settings are gone without warning!

its helpfull, if you need a fast solution for a bigger system with many pages and sometime the Reset is a good solution, but not everytime..

in the next module version in wb 2.8.4 this link will only set the page-code-fields with a 0 and dont touch my settings there

Hi Chris,

here is what pagecode is for:
Hi,

First - Just dont forget to install the patch files..

No, as it is mentioned in first post, you do not need to have same pages on different languages.

For example:

EN                                ES
Home    <home>           Home es
Page 1    <page1>         Pagina 1
Page 2     <seccond>     Paggina 2
Page 3

In <> is page code which needs to be inpuded in page settings. In this example, you see that Page 3 has no match page on spanish. When you click on flag image while you are on that page, you will be redirected to page where you set "home" page code.

Cheers



I used  Easy Multilanguage Link Snippet, and not Multilingual Switcher so I dont know why pagecodes resets.

I had no problems with Easy Multilanguage Link Snippet, it works perfectly so far.
