Oh dear. I installed this locally and everything is perfect. After uploading my site I'm back to the drawing board. In JoomFish the virtuemart sections don't appear and the titles won't translate and I've wierd characters. This was solved with the replacement of the parser. But not online...

One is on my local machine, the other with my hoasting provider. I think it may be some permissions somewhere, but can't figure out how. I uploaded the entire local root dir (folders only not the files in root) and then replaced the virtuemart conf files with those of the website.

Are there conf files of Joomfish were the computer name could be stored? That could be the reason.

Hi, I merged the Joomfish changes into the 1.0.12 version of VirtueMart. The updated parser file is attached.

I installed everything it seem to be working quite well.
There is only 1 thing, the virtuemart login doesn't translate, in fact, the word just disappear. I don't see Username - password or anything else, all I have left (in the translated French version) is 2 field with no indication of what it is.

Anyone might know why ?

EDIT : I didn't see 2 post above mine that there was another parser available for the 1.0.12 version. I'll try it
EDIT2 : Still no luck

I can't figure it out.

I checked the folder contentelements and they are the same. No can I find any differences with the db. The problem only seems to be that the vm contentitems aren't listed in the dropdown box for the translation. I can't figure out the reason why titles of the virtue mart aren't translated too. They are listed in the database....

[EDIT]
mmm. I see that the language file local contains "Sub categorieën". When its loaded online the file still contains it. However it displays: Sub categorieën

So where do I change/check all language settings and character sets?

[EDIT]
I also see this in joomfish:
Warning: mb_eregi() expects parameter 2 to be string, array given in /usr/local/psa/home/vhosts/cardstock.nl/httpdocs/administrator/modules/mod_pathway.php on line 30

EdJoom if it is doable, re-install joomla then joomfish and then virtuemart from scratch on your server.

Sorry I can't help you more.

What you can check are the laguage files. If you open the login form (e.g. checkout.login within virtuemart component html) you'll find the variable name somewhere. Check that variable in de language file. Maybe its not there. If it isn't just add it. I made my own variable in there and it works. If you empty one you'll see that it'll return a blank space instead of a word.

Ahh thx a ton, it worked, I had to go through a lot of code but I finally found it.

Thank you !

EDIT : there is one last thing I don't get.

English version look at the bottom where we have to agree to the terms of service
French version the text is missing.

I checked the variable in the french php file they're all in it... any idea ?

The 'vmLanguage' class is defined in the language files (/administrator/components/com_virtuemart/languages). Make sure you have atleast the english.php present in that folder. I also see you are running windows, maybe there are some path problems makeing VM unable to find the language files?

Hi all,

I'm having trouble with my virtuemart translation. When I click my language flags all goes well except on the virtuemart menu. They won't translate. If I change the language in the config file it will translate the default language. Why doesn't this work?. New install of just joomla, joomfish, and virtuemart doesn't solve it.

In the joomfish administrator panel I'm missing the virtuemart content elements. I do have these locally...

[EDIT]
My guess it has to do with the global parameter $VM_LANG which for some reason isn't switched to UK or NL depending op the click of the flag. (the first issue)


[EDIT 2]
First part solved. Was the parser which wasn't right. Now only the joomfish administrator issue.

Japanese languange Encoding

Postby barnis » Sat Aug 18, 2007 4:00 am

Take a look at my test site here:

[url=http://jayby.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=1&category_id=1&manufacturer_id=0&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=1&lang=ja]
http://jayby.com/index.php?page=shop.pr ... =1&lang=ja
[/url]

Notice how the product descriptions are not encoded as UTF-8 correctly.  Can someone please advise?  I've been trying to fix this for over a month!!

Last file on this tread was to replace the virtuemart_parser.php for virtuemart 1.0.10 but now I have updated the VM to 1.0.12 but now the same problem is back again.
I have found the changed lines (40 an further)  in the old 1.0.10 parser though I dont know what it means I have copyd it to the 1.0.12 virtuemart_parser.php 

But here it is not working. Does any one know if there is an updated virtuemart_parser.php for VM 1.0.12 already. Im really really in great need for it!

The problem is that the main menu translations are not shown correctly!

I posted it earlier in this thread. Search for "virtuemart_parser_JF12.zip".

Thanks so much! GSTENRUD though search function doesnt work... I had to find it manuale. I will try to put your piece of code somewhere to find it more easy. BTW where did you get the code from? I tried to copy paste from the 1.0.10 to the 1.0.12 but that didnt work. Did you PHP it your self? Will try to see what is diferent with the 1.0.10 im very eager to learn.... ;-)

You're welcome!

I piced this one together myself because I couldn't find it anywhere.
I simply compared the original 11 file with the patched one and applied the same changes to the original 12 file.
I'm glad someone find it useful  :)

Fixing gibberish code in your VirtueMart translation

There is a language-independent solution that takes care of this problem. We had a similar issue when translated VirtueMart to Thai using JoomFish. The problem was solved when we changed the site default language to Thai, making English a second choice.

Read about the detailed solution in this topic.

First of all: thumbs up (both of them) for Ivo. Everything worked "out of the box", except for one "small" thing: For SEO reasons, I would like to have my URL's translated as well. As I already entered a number of products to our shop, I also had a number of sh404SEF-ified URL's. Then I started working out the steps as explained in this thread. To my surprise, URL's of existing products weren't translated. Until I found out I had to delete all SEF URL's from within sh404SEF. After that, I had nicely translated URL's  8)

Hope this can be of help :)

Cheers,
Marc
