WPML Issues with Features and Boxes

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Hit a brick wall with getting Features and Boxes to display on German version of homepage.

 

http://diskshred.eu/de/

 

I've attached a screenshot - I can't seem to associate the German version of the page with the box or feature sets. But it seems impossible to do this in Meta on the German translation of the page?

 

I have already translated the actual features and boxes using the WPML plugin. It should display like so http://diskshred.eu/ - except in German.

 

I'm using default-features and boxes and these are both set up properly in templates.

 

Any ideas greatly appeciated. I'm not really a coder but can dive in if necessary!

 

Versions:

 

Wordpress 3.5.1

Pagelines 2.4.2

WPML 2.8.2

Hi.

 

When you go to the page where the slider is located, and scroll down, click PageLines Meta Settings, then Features, are you selecting a feature set?

 

Do you have a feature set created in the German site? With slides uploaded and paired to the set?

Hello,

 

Yes, I hadn't created a new feature set to house the translations. Phew. Thanks!

crogers I see you're using PL and WPML and I want to do the same, and have a question about this.

I have a client with multiple domains, each for a different country/language.

 

I want to create just one site. Is it possible with the combination of PL and WPML to have different content on specific (home)pages? And I don't just mean a different translation, but different setup of, for instance, boxes etc. Like on the english site just a feature slider and and a few boxes, and on the german site a different feature slider, no boxes, a banner and a footer.

 

By the way, http://diskshred.eu/de/ looks really good!

Hello,

 

I just checked and yes it does seem possible. When you create another language version of your page, e.g. the homepage, Pagelines/Wordpress/WPML treats it it as another standalone page and therefore you have access to Page Attributes where you can change the template it's attached to. You can also access Pagelines Meta Settings where you can change layout, Boxes, Features etc. without it affecting the original default language page.

 

Hope this helps!

      Hello,
      We are working on a 2 languages site (https://liguecardioliga.be) with wpml, and lately the call of a category in the loops section (and all the sections requiring a category to select posts) doesn't work in the translated language. It worked well until recently so I wonder if it's because of a recent update (wordpress, wpml, pagelines, a plugin?). Anyone has the same problem? a solution?
      TIA

      I am trying to get WPML working on my Pagelines instance. I am interested in getting help from anyone that has tried, especially @claudedagenais who seams to have it working.
      My issues are:
      How to translate header and footer How to get the menu to show all nav even if not translated How to get non-translated posts /pages to show up when only in default language - true for Masonry, Newsfront, and other list showing items... I have zero skills in PHP and its my site for my company. 
      note: Multi-lingual is a business decision and is required. I have vetted all of the multi-lingual options and the only one fit for purpose is WPML.

      The images are forced into a boxed frame so that you can't see the whole picture. Doesn't look so good. Is this a bug? A feature? How can I fix it?

      The recent WP update seems to be quite cheeky...messing about with a number of things. 
       
      Having trouble with boxes displaying differently in different browsers.  1st screen shot is Chrom...looks ok. 
      2nd screenshot is Firefox...colors are different. Icons are different. Have weird 1000's next to the icons. Any idea what's going on? 
       
      Thanks!!

      Hello,
      How can you set the translations with platform5, the parts that are not in pages or posts? Texts and images…
