Association Multilingual for Menu Item system link URL

Post by luchovision » Thu Jul 15, 2021 4:28 pm

Hi there,

I need to solve a problem with one url association for spanish / english. This url in a system link menu type.

domain.com/url-in-spanish to
domain.com/url-in-english

The think is this type of link does not show "association" options to switch language.

Is there a solution for this? Maybe using another joomla extension?

Thanks in advance for your help,
Luis

Do you mean the Menu Type "System" > "Menu Heading" ?

As test, could you try to visit the URL that you want to associate with the other language?
You cannot visit it directly, can you?
Therefore that Menu Type does not have an option to associate it with other Menu Items.

Thanks for your response,

I mean system url like this

I know there is no association option here, but maybe some kind of trick.

From what you have described, I believe that you are developing a multilingual site.

Check whether the plugin "System - Language Filter" is Enabled. For associating items, this plugin must be enabled.
