multi-lang menu

Post by suehami » Mon May 13, 2019 12:38 pm

Hi
My site has 2 languages (English & Turkish) and the menus all work fine but I need a link on the Turkish menu to point to an article in English, there is no matching article in Turkish to create an association.
When I create the link to the article the menu adds the /tr/articlename.
I can't edit the link manually.
Is there a way to achieve the link?
Many thanks for your time and attention
Sue

What you could do is to assign the language "All" to the article that is only in English. After this, create a menu item of the type "Single Article" in the Turkish menu and choose this common article in English.

There are other solutions to this depending on your needs.

Does thee article in English need to be displayed also when the site is switched to English?
To which language is tagged the Category to which belongs this article?
Is that category supposed to be displayed when the site is switched to English?

In this case another solution is to create a single article menu item linking to the article tagged to English in the English menus.
Then Create an Alias Menu item in the Turkish menu targeting the English menu item above.
Clicking the Turkish Alias Menu item will display the English menu item with its article, AND the UI will switch to English.
All depends on the category chosen for the English article and its lang tag, etc.
