Suddenly I have lost track on my new build D7 German/English site. Nothing I attempt seems to work. I will tell more about the problems below but I think its hard to help me there as long as I am not sure if the base is correct. So, my concrete question is:
How should the mainmenu of a bilingual D7 site look like, i.e. is there only one main menu and the translations of the links can just be seen after clicking on them?
Home About Us -Team -Jobs
Or should there be a menu tree for German and another one for English?
Home About Us -Team -Jobs Start Über uns -Mitarbeiter -Karriere
(Both is possible and I am still strugelling to understand if this is a bug or a feature. See Why are there so many different ways to translate menus?)
Well, here are some of the problems I thought I overcome and which now seem to be everywhere on my site:
- Sometimes, a translated site appears as an item on its own in content list, sometimes the translation seems to be stores in the main language item.
- On some pages I may not click on English although there exists a translated version of the site although it should be linked as far as I see.
- If a link works, the bread crump path differs from the real path:
Start / Über uns / Karriere
Home / Jobs
