Bad multilangual redirection

Post by Blasha » Fri Jun 08, 2018 12:55 pm

Hello,

I just create a new category : "news".
Made a menu to this category.
Created some article.
Associate menu / category / article to the frechn part of this category : "actualités"

When I clic on the flag on my article "test article1 EN", its leads me on "test article FR 2".
The flag seams to lead me on the good language, but on the latest article viewed in the language...

Could you please help me ?

Not sure I fully understand.
To which language is tagged this new category called News?
Do you have another category called Actualités? To which language is it tagged? What is its place in the Categories hierarchy?
Have you created articles in each of these categories? To which language are they tagged?

Which EXACT menu items have you created? Tagged to which languages?

Which items are associated (menu items, categories, articles)?
Give details with real names.

If your menu items are of the type category and are associated, just check the parameters for the order of articles displayed and make sure they are the same.

Hello infograf768,

Thank you for your answer.
I have to assume that it is not easy to explain :-)

I Have two menus :
- Actualités (Fr)
- News (En)
associated

Two Categories :
- Actualités (Fr)
- News (En)

Two articles (belonging to aboves categories) :

Mon actu1 (Fr)
Mon actu2 (Fr)

My news1 (En)
My news2 (En)

All associated to each others

When I clic on :
Mon actu1 (Fr) and clic on En flag >> it leads to My news1 (En) (good so far)
When I clic on : Mon actu2 (Fr) and clic on En flag it leads to My news1 (En) (bad article !!).

Thank you again for your help...

Are the Categories associated?
What type of menu items are
- Actualités (Fr)
- News (En)

Do they have the same parameters?

Which version of Joomla?

I do not have this issue here when using a blog menu item

Can't help more without looking at your site as super user.
Maybe it is related to a cache or a redirect, etc.

Ok, I understand.
I am going to make a pre-prod version of this site and I Will give you an access.
Is there a way to give private link in this forum ?

Hello Infograph 768,

Well, its crasy, I read again your post and cancelled cache option (on System parameters / cache parameters : disable cache)... And it works !!
Do you know what I should do nown, because when I put cache on again it breaks...
The strange thing is that it was working for all other article on the site (other categories...).

Thank you anyway for your help.

Make sure that the Language switcher module is set to not use cache.

Anyway, thank you again for your help.
