Re: MLP - The Multi-Lingual Publishing Pack

Ok, good. Would be great possibility to be able to select “active / non-active”. Serving alternative content on section landing pages using “if_lang” mehtod is a one way to manage situation – after basic navigation snippets are on place.

Was it possible to clone articles straight from native articles write tab in newest version? I have 0.7.636 but it doesn’t show any cloning possibility on write page.

And one more to wishlist, if I haven’t already asked this; possibility to clone multiple articles with selectable radio buttons…

Edit. What, you did that in same time I was writing :)

Now you lost me.

With the change I made your visitors won’t even know there is a new language in the works. Unless they happen to guess the language code that matches your new backend language and edit the url themselves, they won’t get to a new-language’s section landing page. You therefore shouldn’t need any conditional if_lang tags.

Not possible at present. You can already clone from the Content > MLP > Articles.

And one more to wishlist, if I haven’t already asked this; possibility to clone multiple articles with selectable radio buttons…

Could you post a mock-up of what you have in mind and explain the behaviour more as I don’t understand your request.

Re: MLP - The Multi-Lingual Publishing Pack

Yes I lost you, just looking the new plugin code.

I was thinking about if there could be same kind select boxes as is in default renditions/articles list (where you can select multiple articles to change status, category or whatever). This kind multi-select ability to MLP-articles list too, to be able to clone multiple articles in same time (when having hundreds, it’s slow to clone each one by one). (If adding new language to old site)

Re: MLP - The Multi-Lingual Publishing Pack

Ok, now I get what you mean. Yes, that would be really useful for people extending sites.

Let me think about that a little as there might be other ways to achieve the same thing … for example; by having a simple icon at the top of each language column that allows an entire language to be populated with clones of an existing site language (where possible).

Re: MLP - The Multi-Lingual Publishing Pack

Hiding languages is a useful feature, nice one.

But before you release the code would you object to using suppress_langs instead of surpress_langs ;-)

Thanks: done! Now I have to fix the other surpress in that tag’s attribute list.

Wonder if it’s worth causing folks errors on their upgraded sites over a spelling mistake. Hmmm.

Re: MLP - The Multi-Lingual Publishing Pack

Hi, Steve, This will be a very helpful addition.

I like the idea of being able to use check boxes to select renditions/articles to clone. That’d be very useful.

I wouldn’t worry about causing problems if you correct the spelling of “suppress”. Not many of us have installed the new code and those that have installed it lurk here, so they’ll know.

Re: spelling; Not that one! Another, previously existing, one that some people might already be using — check the help and you’ll see it.

I’ll mull over the mass-cloning thing a little before posting on it again.

Sorry to bring it up then. Don’t worry about it and keep it as surpress for consistency. Let’s face it, the Internet’s been spelling referer wrong for the past 15+ years and that turned out ok :-)

Re: MLP - The Multi-Lingual Publishing Pack

Hello! I had a look at all the thread, but didn’t find an answer to my problem yet. Since the thread is very long I hope I haven’t missed something and posting a question that has already been answered.

I have used the MLP plug-in successfully on 2 sites (BTW it’s a wonderful solution and it works perfectly!!), but today I tried to install it on a new site, hosted on a different server and I just cannot make it work.

I’m using a clean Txp install (v 4.0.6), so the only plug-ins I have are the l10n, zem_contact_lang-mlp and the gbp_admin_library. I used the same files to install MLP on the 2 sites mentioned above, downloaded from MLP website.

The first time I activated l10n I couldn’t access any any tab in txp, just got a list of php errors. I realised that for some reason none of the l10n_xxxx.php files were created inside the lib directory, so I installed txp again and tried to upload the php files manually, but if I open the content tab (or any other tab) I still get the following error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function l10n_installed() in /home/sanrocco/public_html/textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php(574) : eval()'d code on line 305

and txp just doesn’t work unless I deactivate l10n from the plug-in tab. I don’t understand a lot about php, so I don’t have a clue about what that error means.

I’m running textpattern 4.06 on Apache server, Php 5.2.3, MySql 4.1.22-standard and from the Diagnostic tab the only error I get is that the “show_source” function is disabled. All the files and folders seem to have the right permissions.

Does anyone have a suggestion?

Thanks in advance.
