page error 404 on second language page

Post by jesperfredskild » Sun Aug 18, 2019 8:35 am

Hi
I am trying to setup multilanguage.

I believe I have setup:
- the menu's correctly, (one hidden with language All and the 2 diff. main menu with "home" and "language")
- the switcher correctly (enambled the filter plugin and gave it a position)
- and installed the languages.(danish and english, danish is default)
- I have no indication in the Language status bar.
Have attached the pic of the: plugin, menus, and status.

If I activate (Yes) the "Remove URL Language Code" I can remove the 404 page error on the default page (As understood from previous forum, it is working correct when only removed on default page).
But the problem i the other page. there I still have the 404 page error and the language code is in the URL.

So how can I get rid of the 404 page error, when I can't remove the code in the URL.

Please help
/Jesper

Have you tried to turn off SEF in Global Configuration?

As the Language Status Module show all green, I would trouble shoot SEF.

Are you hosted on Apache?

Have you renamed htaccess.txt to .htaccess?

Hi All,

There is same issue with the language switcher on my site.

My site has 7 language and it worked fine for a time, but now i get 404 url invalid error, if i want change the default lang to other.

If i turn off the sef url, than the language change works fine, but i dont want use a 3 party component to the sef url.

Useing a link like "index.php?lang=xx" then the page works fine.

I have no idea what happened, bacuause i did not touch the htaccess file, or anything else.

My site works on last joomla release and php 7.

How can i recognise what is the problem?
