Cart popup only taking text from default language
« on: April 01, 2018, 20:41:44 pm »
i have a Joomla! 3.8.6 site with VirtueMart 3.2.12
The site template is a Virtual Planet Smart.

i have several languages on the site. I do not have the language selector published as i have not finished translation but can switch between languages by changing the url
The site translates ok in the main.

i find when i click the add to cart tab the popup appears.
When the site is in say German i get this


The untranslated text in the case of 'Continue Shopping' is coming from COM_VIRTUEMART_CONTINUE_SHOPPING="Continue Shopping" in en-GB.com_virtuemart.ini in the language folder of components/com_virtuemart
If i alter this text in this file the text on the popup changes, say to 'Continue Shoppingxx'  .
The other language files are there but the site is not accessing these files for the popup.

i have looked through various forums and threads but i find no solution.
Any advice

Is the key found COM_VIRTUEMART_CART_PRODUCT_ADDED in Your language file ? Have You tried adding the key COM_VIRTUEMART_CART_PRODUCT_ADDED  as replacement text for BOTH front end and backend with Joomla language manager? This goes for the other two keys as well.

regards

i made a copy of the website on my PC and xampp - i was trying it out and noticed the pop-up translated.
i noticed the url had index.php in it - for some reason the url rewrite was not set to yes.

So when the site is set to url rewrite YES the pop does not translate.
When it is set to url rewrite NO the pop up translates.

Is this an issue with the .htaccess file?
