Multi-lang for Main Forum of Kunena

Post by leon5wu » Sat Apr 14, 2012 6:29 pm

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone got chance to make main forum content of Kunena multi-lang success. I just make the menu of Kunena work with mutl-lang but I am unable to make main forum language dependent. Both English and Chinese main forum are displayed in two languages.

Thank you.

Re: Multi-lang for Main Forum of Kunena-TIPS

Install Kunena.
Kunena creates a menu called kunena-menu and its items set to ALL languages.
It also creates a menu module set to the position 'kunena_menu' and also set to ALL.
------------------------
TIP in multilanguage
=> to reproduce for each content language, example here for 2 languages: en-GB and fr-FR)


Change Title and Menu Type of kunenamenu to kunenamenu_en.
Select all menu items and batch change language to English

Create a new menu kunenamenu_fr
In kunenamenu_en select all menu items and batch copy with language change to French to the kunenamenu_fr menu.

Edit in kunenamenu_fr the name and aliases of the menu items (Topics = Sujets, etc.)
Create menu associations between each menu item and its equivalent in the kunenamenu_en menu.

--------------

In Module Manager, edit the default kunena menu module.
Rename it to kunena-english
Change its language to English.
Assign it to the kunenamenu_en menu items (and mainmenu alias, see below).
Assign it to a position available in your template. Default position "kunena_menu" will display that menu on top of the forum.

Duplicate the module for the French language.
Rename it to kunena-french
Choose kunenamenu_fr as menu displayed
Change its language to French
Assign it to the kunenamenu_fr menu items (and mainmenu alias, see below).
Assign it to a position available in your template. Default position "kunena_menu" will display that menu on top of the forum.
--------------------

Create in each of your mainmenus (mainmenu-en, mainmenu-fr) --or Top menus or wherever you like-- an Alias Menu Item tagged to the same language as your mainmenu (do not fill the alias) linking to the main kunenamenu-xx menu item "Forum" (same language).

Make sure the kunenamenu-xx modules are also assigned to these Alias menu items (same language).

Is set correctly, you will obtain on your site:
An Alias Menu Item which, when clicked, will display the kunena forum and its menu on top of the forum (+ all the modules you have set to display on these pages).
Clicking on the Langswitcher module on another language/flag will display the forum in the language chosen.

Hope this helps.

It is absolutely helpful to muti-lang for Kunena and I can, now, switch the languages of Kunena menu between English and Chinese.

I was wondering if I can switch the languages for the forum content. Now, I've created two Main Forums, - English and Chinese. If I click on the Index menu of English Forum, the Chinese Main Forum is displayed together with English one. My point is that it only show English Main Forum when English Index menu is clicked and vice versa.
The attachment is the current situation.

Thank you very much.

I guess you better ask on Kunena forums about this one.

It is not possible directly in configuration of Kunena forum. I'm working on this issue and I hope build a hack and solution for it.

yes, I found a solution:

go to components/com_kunena/funcs/listcat.php and edit the where clause by English and other language ids.

This is interesting as I am trying to install Joomla 2.5 with Kunena and then apply Chinese language packs to the site. Joomla and Kunena are installed and working well. But.... I am having the worst time trying to install language packs. Joomla keeps complaining about not being able to copy the xml setup file, but permissions are correct for the tmp and destination directories. And I have searched for every possible Chinese language pack for 1.7/2.5

Can you or anyone help with installing a simple language pack in J2.5? Have tried for two days and keep getting held up.

It is for a Conversational Chinese/English site for a few students.

This is unrelated to the original issue.
Nexttime, please create a new topic.

The registered language packs for Chinese are avalable here:
Simplified: http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/jtrans ... ge_id=5695
Traditional: http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/jtrans ... ge_id=5587

They install perfectly well.

I was hoping to get a response from the OP, and spare a new thread. I posted here on purpose, to cut down on the minutia. Instead I get scolded. And no further towards a solution. Pardon me for being pissy but those are some of the worse responses when someone says "it works on my machine". Provides 0 guidance to a reasonable question. Oh well. Sorry I asked. Just drop it...

Both Chinese 2.5.4 lang packs had errors, which I corrected grace to your post.
Therefore, please cool down and test installing them.

Also, it would be helpful to know if you have issues installing any other extensions.

I can't find the folder "funcs". Where is it?

Infograf768, this is like the most awesome reply I've seen in any support forum. I'm dealing with a different version of everything and it still was helpful for me. Thank you very much for your help :D
