German language tag is de-DE , NOT de-GR

You will have
1. to change the German Content Language (image 1.jpg)
2. Resave all items that were tagged to German so that they get the right tag

Hi again,
We have re installed J 2.5.8 without sample data.
I did not manage to make the lang selector to work at the beginning.

I have revisited the instructions at http://help.joomla.org/files/EN-GB_mult ... torial.pdf and followed it through.

I have one recommendation, please remove page 7, the languages will not show until content, menus, and all the rest is done.



Thanks
Amir

Wrong, they will show as soon as a Content Language is created, even unpublished.

What do you mean by switch?

Please look at the official Tutorial:
http://multilingual.demojoomla.com ... steps.html

you can access back-end there and see how it is configured.

Page 7 is an illustration of Back-end parameter for language, not the language switcher in front-end. ;)
