Joomla 2.5.17 - installing spanish language pack

Post by e-ware » Thu Feb 06, 2014 5:39 pm

Hello
I am running Joomla! 2.5.17, and I have several languages installed.
When I try to add spanish, I seem to have a problem and I can't figure out what I am doing wrong.

I created an extra content language, created a root category, created a menu for the language, etc...
Then I installed the language pack via the extension installer (I have tried an all in one pack, and tried separately installing admin/frontend files)
I see the language even appear in the language switcher.

However, in the language manager I do not see the language in either "Site" or "administrator" tabs. Also, when I open the site and select the language, all the content is just displayed in the default language (english) rather than spanish.

Any ideas?

Thank you
Erwin

This means the pack has not been installed.
Use the back-end Extension Manager => Install Languages to install es-ES

Hello Infograf768,

I have tried installing the language pack (several times), I tried both the pack containing all-in-one as well as separately installing admin/frontend language packs.
The installation reports "successful" but I do not believe it is, because the language does not appear in the language manager.

Here are some screenshots attached.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts as I'm at a loss.

Thank you!
