we will release beta version when we are so far so everyone could test and give their input. I hope we will be done with beta by March 1st but please do not hold us to it.
Simple and important feature
I recently installed YouGrids template. I have bilingual site. It seems to me, that it is possible to select only 1 menu as default Top Menu. I have different menus for different languages.
Why do I need to select the default menu for a template framework at all? You need to select a module position in Joomla, isn't it enough.
Menu Position for Multilingual support
I have a problem with the main menu of your templates as my sites are 90% multilingual.
When I set up a multilingual site I add:
1 General Menu for all languages - with 1 homepage (all languages)
1 Mainmenu - Menu for English - with 1 homepage (english language) and subpages
1 Menuprincipal - Menu for Spanish - with 1 homepage (spanish language) and subpages
1 language switcher English / Spanish
1 Module Menu English - linked to Mainmenu
1 Module Menu Spanish - linked to Menuprincipal
I add the Module Menus position-1 and language switcher position-0 or any other postion.
Now if I take the beez2 template or any other joomla template in the installation packet this setup works perfectly and when I switch languages (flags or text) I always get a Menu with Menu items in their respective language.
Now in your templates the mainmenu has per default position-7 which is not a position - but a fixed one.
And in the template settings/top menu settings - I have to choose a default menu - WHICH I THINK IS THE MAIN PROBLEM - If I choose the Mainmenu - only the English topmenu version is showing at mysite/en if I click the language switcher and choose the Spanish site - the topmenu stays blanc.
If I now choose the Menuprincipal as the default topmenu the spanish menu shows but not the English one...
And the multilingual support seems not possible that way.
I thougt I read that you are going to solve this problem by giving your Menu a Module Position in the new upgrade - I am almost sure I read that somewhere and was really excited:-)
Now I updated my yougrids and youmedia template manually - following your instructions on:....we-ready-joomla-2-5-a.html uploading the following files of yougrids 2.5 to my site and also installed a test site with the yougrids files (Template_Yougrids-J17J25) and (Plugin_YJ_Mega_Menu-J17J25):
But in both, the update and new test installation I cannot make the topemnu multilingual compatible as in other Joomla Templates.
Did I miss to upload a file? or did you not add a module position to your update? Or do you have any other suggestion of how to make your templates topmenu multilingual compatible with Joomla 1.6 to 2.5
Please let me know.
I can make use of multilingual with a workaround (having to move all menus into one and making 3 default home sites... )- but the customers won't be happy with that... as it looks very confusing in the admin area... especially after the 2.5 update..
Thanks for your work!
I think this would be a great NEW improvement if we could use Youjoomla templates for Multilingual sites.
Which right now is only possible with workarounds...
Since Joomla 1.6 - it is possible to make multilingual sites with Joomla without using any outside components - but hey if you think that Youjoomla templates should not have a framework that can be used for multilingual websites then that is your idea of improvement.
If you read my thread you will see that I am not asking how to do something - I am explaining how I did it and that it is not currently possible to use the Youjoomla templates for a multilingual website following the Joomla Standards.
Ahh oh, i am sorry about that.
You are correct, multilingual feature should be nice aswell. *Thumbs up*
But then after reading carefully - this thread here is about the new version of the new Youjoomla Company Website and not about a new 2.0 version of the Youjoomla templates - so I am in the wrong place after all :eek:
so moderators, please move my thread to the right thread which would be: http://www.youjoomla.com/joomla_support/announcements/9448-yjsg-version-2-0-suggestions.html#post43031
I do not want to double post it...
thanx and sorry
this is solved by YJ Mega menu moved to a module not to be part of templates or framework anymore. This is already done but will not be published until YJSG 2.0 is out
and no , I never said there was mod position update for 25 , menu is still hard coded and does not require any positions but please take this to YJSG forum not here. thnx
I misunderstood you then - but I am happy it is solved and soon available to us.
Since when YJSG version 2.0 will be available to us?
Thanks a lot.
