Language Not Published

Post by Katarina03 » Wed Apr 03, 2019 2:36 am

I installed Spanish-CO and followed the steps to create a multilingual sight. When I published the language switcher, it only shows the English flag. The Multilingual Status page is saying that I that Spanish-CO is not published. I cannot figure out how to publish it. When I go to the Extensions>Languages, it shows it, but other than a radio button to select the language and declare it "Default" there is no other options. How do I publish the language?

The module Language Switcher would show only the languages for which the Default menu items have been created.

You have to define a Default menu item for the newly installed language (ie Spanish-CO).

Review of the document https://docs.joomla.org/Special:MyLangu ... ting_menus would be of help.

I had already done that. I have been through that document multiple times before I came here. My Spanish Menu has a default "Incio" Page and the star for that page has the flag instead.

Please look at administrator/index.php?option=com_languages&view=languages
Language not published may mean that the "Content Language" is not published.
