I might not understand Drupal 8 and the different Multilingual approach completely, but I'm bumping into all sorts of issues.
What I simply want, is a single Menu , containing links from 2 different languages.
To make this happen :
- I enabled the Language module, and set-up 1 additional language. Install was done in NL, and I added FR
- I enabled the Content Translation module
- I checked both 'Content' & 'Menu Link' under, so that I can translate both the Node & the menu title ( admin/config/regional/content-language )
- Set the language of the Main Menu to '- Not applicable'. I'm not sure if this is right, but the menu would contain links from 2 languages, so I thought this was best option ( admin/structure/menu/manage/main )
Issue #1 :
When I create a NL node & enable menu-link, all is fine on /nl , but on /fr the menu-link still pops up. This seems weird, as I have no translation or menu-link for FR.
Issue #2 :
When I click 'Translate' on the NL node, I get the FR edit form. I type my content, and I change the menu link title ( the field is visible & pre-filled with the NL menu link title ). I now have both a NL & FR version of my node, but my original NL menu link changed with it. I would assume that automatically , a FR version of my menu link would be created. However, that's not the case. I have to manually go to Structure > Menus and click 'translate' on my NL menu link
Am I setting up the wrong way ? Should I go for a separate NL/FR menu ? Will I have to manually add functionality, to create a menu-item on the fly when I translate a node ?
Has someone done something similar and experienced the same issues? And perhaps have any solutions ?
