Hello

Did you use any extension?
Could you give me the name of the extension?

Publish the Language Status Backend Module. It will tell you what is missing.

After asking the developer of the theme, they said their menu module is not meant fore multi-lingual sites. He suggested I make to modules and input the a links my slef and use the menu class for styling.

Is their any extension where I can make a module that chooses a menu?

1. Create a Menu for each Language + "All"
2. Creste a Menu Module for each Menu
3. Tag all Modules and Menus to thrir Language

The Language Filter Plugin will show the one that belongs to the current Language.

Seems easy enough Per. But there is absolutley no styleing to menu module.

I'm thinking about creating a custom html module. In it I will insert that exact code for menu. I will copy form soucre code.

Then just change the lang suffix in the code and hope it works!

This is a bad idea.

You must enter the correct Menu Class Suffix and Module Class Suffix for your Template in the Menu Module.
I guess, since your template is not designed to use a Menu Module, you have to add some css to it to style the menu.

I know this could be another topic. I created the menu module for one language and have begun to style it. I can't seem to get the text to show, when I add a white opaque backgound...

any ideas?

Yes. But I tried changing the color and decreasing the opacity. The li just gives me a opaque white square and the text which is not opaque dissapears completly.
