Hi, my site ist multilanguage and when i switch in content of joomla it works fine. But in Virtuemart on a kategory or detail page, it allways switch to first overview page of VM.

so i can't change the language in a product. The shop i a imigration from joomla 1.5 and virtuemart 1.1.9 with joomfish.

K&K media production

This is the normal workflow. If you change the language vm load the frontpage.


Some additional info: The Joomla language switcher depends on menu items. Switching languages in VirtueMart frontend views is identical to doing so in Joomla. When you are looking at 'Product X' in 'Category A' in German and switch to English, it looks for a menu item 'Category A' in English. If it doesn't find that, the Joomla language switcher will fall back to the next higher level for which it finds a menu item in English, which might be your homepage.
Non-English Shops: Are your language files up to date?


Thanks for your answert, ok there is no solution. In my old version with VM 1.1.9 and joomfish works fine zhe switch in the category or product page.
