language switcher same page

Post by christoscy » Fri Nov 30, 2012 9:44 am

Hello,
I'm facing an issue regarding the language switcher.

I have installed Greek language and then i set up the content of the language. I have created 3 menus. One of each language which have a home for each language and a menu which have the default for all languages.

I activated the language filter plugin and the language switcher module.
It seems to work fine but when the user clicks to change language the module navigates the page to the "home" page of each language.

i just want the module to change the url from www.mysite.com/el/page to www.mysite.com/en/page, In other words i want to change the language (for example from Greek to English) and stays at the same page.

Thank you in advance.

Welcome to Joomla forum!

You can do that with "Menu Item Association":
Extensions > Plug-in Manager > "System - Language Filter" > Menu associations: Yes.
Then in the Menu Manager use “Association” to associate menu items with menu items in other language(s).
