Language switcher module and navigation issue
« on: November 24, 2021, 08:11:16 am »
Hello there.

Using Joomla 3.10.3 VirtueMart 3.8.8 installation. It appears that when I am on a Virtuemart Category/Product if I hover the mouse on the language flags (you know when you hover mouse to a link, link shows up at bottom left as a notice) I see that flag of the language I am on shows the correct URL but the other flag shows the home page. I tried to check to a specific Virtuemart category where in the related menu item of one language I also added association to the other language's item and still the same.

Any ideas?

Thank you in advance

Jörgen

When I am talking about flags I mean country flags inside the default language switcher module.

As for the language filter plugin:

Language Selection for new Visitors: Site Language
Automatic Language Change: Yes
Associations: Yes
Add Alternate Meta Tags: Yes
Add x-default Meta Tag: Yes
x-default Language: Default front-end
Remove URL Language Code: No
Cookie Lifetime: Session

Notice that my language change module works fine in Joomla articles
 
Cookie Lifetime

Check my module https://shop.st42.fr/en/products/multi-language-for-virtuemart.htm
You can switch any categories or product(you do not need to associate categories)

It's only on the home page and a very odd dropdown thing ...

I suspect either the products etc aren't translated or the greek has been filled in in the default english .. perhaps .. maybe ..  ;)

though looking now and it looks like its solved

and btw @ pm4698 -- wihout Patricks (Studio 42)  lang changer when u click Greek when on say https://cosycorner.gr/index.php/en/gifts-for-all/little-toy-store/0-3-years-old/funny-faces-magnetic-play-set-detail it will return to the greek home page unless u manually create every menu and map it to the appropriate other lang one

I use Patricks language switcher and I am very pleased with the way it switches languages. The stock Joomla module does return you to the home page instead.
