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):
- elements - folder with files
- html/com_content - folder with files
- html/com_users - folder with files
- offline.php - file
- css/joomladefaults.css - file
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!
