Content Language: Cannot edit main language

Post by floh79 » Thu May 28, 2020 7:32 am

Hello everybody,

I setup language switcher which works fine. Now I have to edit the text of languages in language switcher because there are always countrys in text like "English (United Kingdom)", "Deutsch (Deutschland)", etc.

I was able to change it there: joomla -> extensions -> languages -> language content

There I just click on desired language to edit the native title. Unfortunatelly if I click on main language (de-DE), then I just get empty form (title says: "Languages: New Content Language"). :/ If I try just to fill the form for de-DE, then it complains de-DE is already there.

Is this a bug? How can I change the native title for main language of joomla (mine is de-DE)?

Best regards
Floh

This is what you should get:

If I click on "German (Germany)" then I got empty form:

Do anyone of you know why? Is it because the ID = 0?

Best regargs

Certainly the id should'nt be 0. Don't know how you got that.

Now, let's try to solve this.
1. Go to Extensions=>Manage and filter by package.
Uninstall the German language package
2. Go to Content Languages and delete the German content language with id 0
3. Go to Install Languages, choose German de-DE and install

This should create also a new Content Language for German

Any item already tagged to de-DE in the db will not be modified.

Hello,

reinstalling Language package helped. Now the id is 3 and I was able to edit the content language.

I dunno how it happened. Maybe bacause my customer migrated the site to another one?

Thank you very much!
