404 error with new language

Post by rawcat » Mon Aug 09, 2021 2:29 pm

Hi,

I added DE-CH as a new language to this site: https://info-haemorrhoiden.de/de/

The other languages had beed added a while ago and are working fine. But all of the /de-ch/* pages are throwing a 404 error.

Menues are set up, language-status shows green checkmarks, modules are installed. How can I find the error?

Thanks in advance!

Have you created menu items for those de-ch pages?
Do they link to the de-ch content? (to the de-ch categories and de-ch articles?)

Can you switch off Joomla's Search Engine Friendly (SEF) URLs in Global Configuration and test again?
Do the URLs look similar except for the id= & lang= part ?

Display the multilingual status admin module to check eventual errors.

Found my error: I copied the de-de Menu and didn't reassign the article in the de-ch version.
