Switch language for current page, not return to index?

Post by gabiosz » Mon Oct 10, 2011 11:59 am

Hi,

I have the language switching working fine, but when I switch it returns me to the index page, which is annoying if a user comes in to a product page from a search engine and wants to switch language.

I am using Zoo with Zoolingual, so all that is needed is a switch from domain.com/index.php/en/catagory/product to domain.com/index.php/ja/catagory/product, instead of which is takes me back domain.com/index.php/ja/ :-\

Any idea how to get around this?

Many Thanks,
Gabriel

Read tutorial and use the Menu associations features, if your component permits.
See: http://multilingual.demojoomla.com/en/m ... steps.html

If the site is real huge, this may not be handy as it requires a menu item per item to display.
We do clearly explain in all our tutorials that the native multilanguage feature in 1.7.x may not be advised in your case and that it can't replace a 3pd extension as Joomfish, which is not currently available for 1.7
