GTranslate Extension Issue

Post by vhfmac » Wed Jan 05, 2022 1:43 pm

I installed the free GTranslate language translator extension in Joomla 3.10.4 and have set up 3 languages with horizontal flag logos. The system works ok, but if you refresh the page it reverts to the Google dropdown menu with the flags vertical. Is there some way to avoid showing the google dropdown, as I don't want to use it?

Hi,

Try to add more Custom CSS code

a.flag.nturl {
display: inline-flex;
}

Thanks Itheme, but that code did not help after I added it in the CUSTOM CSS box of my "shaper_helix3" Joomshaper Template. Was that the right place? Mac

Yes, please place it via Template Settings > Custom Code, put it on field "Custom CSS code"

Place replace it with "!important" value, like as below

a.flag.nturl {
display: inline-flex!important;
}

Clear site cache and browser cache and recheck. I tested it with inspect code via browser (Chrome) and it's working well.

Sorry, no go on any Chrome, Edge or Firefox. Cleared all cashe/histories on each.

I wonder if problem is in the shaper_helix3" template itself, as the Off Canvass "dropdowns" also do not work? I have been trying to sort that out for weeks now, as 75% of my viewers are on cellphones!

The problem does not show up until the browser is refreshed a time or two using "F5" or the browser's Refresh icon. I don't understand why the error would show up on the 2 or 3rd load??

Thanks for the pointers Itheme, Mac
