Topic-icon No language switcher after update to V1.7

Hello,

After upgrading my site ( www.interkart.nl ) to Joomla 1.7 my language flags suddenly have disappeared. After spending a couple of hours trying to find out if any settings have changed during the process, I am now more or less clueless! Can you please help !

One thing of possible(?) importance. In the en-GB directory (located in the Language directory) the following .ini files are present:
en-GB.tpl_hot_cars.ini
en-GB.tpl_hot_cars.sys.ini

In the nl-NL and the de-DE folders I do not see equivalent .ini files. Not sure if this has anything to do with the cause of the problem, but I thought it could be worthwhile mentioning.

Please help. The multi-language capability of the site is extremely important.

Kind regards,
Moos

Yes that might be the problem. Copy that files but with changed language prefix.

Sorry for the long delay with getting back to this problem. This was due to health issues. Back at work this week I figured that unfortunately the problem has not magically disapeared. I did create the files as suggested, but this has not changed the problem a bit.
Any ideas about what else can have gone wrong in the update process???

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards,
Moos

Hmm,

language .ini file format is slightly different in j15 and j16 and j17.

In j15:

LABEL=TEXT TO DISPLAY

in j15 and j17

LABEL="TEXT TO DISPLAY"

so maybe quotes are problem? Check if you have quotes in ini file .

Hi Ivan,
Yep quotes are all there. I might have found different causes however.

Directory /public_html/language has the following 5 folders:
/de-DE
/en-GB
/fr-FR
/nl-NL
/overrides
In each of this I copied the following 2 .ini files (with changed language identifiers)
en-GB.tpl_hot_cars.ini
en-GB.tpl_hot_cars.sys.ini
HOWEVER. I just noticed that the .sys.ini file is completely empty!! Can you send me a correct version?

Second (possible) issue:
In the directory /public_html/templates/hot_cars there is NO languages folder present?? Is this correct?

The stupid thing is that the whole website functions correctly in each of the activated languages (de, nl and en). It just the language switcher that does not work. I would hate to have to rebuild my site just because of this.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

that sys file is supposed to be empty an language directory is removed after template installation if exists, so that's all ok. You say that everything works normal so probably that is not a problem. I was looking at your site again. I suspect it might be an problem with SEF , so maybe some .htaccess file editing will solve the issue. Btw. where is language switcher on your site?
