JoomGallery and jDiction
« on: April 28, 2013, 03:58:38 pm »

Hello,

i just installed and configured jDiction, which was quite a smooth run. Right now i would like to try my luck with the module joomGallery and translate its content with jDiction. Obviously there are example XML-File in library/jdiction/tables, but i don't see how they connect to their respective module. I am used to program with php & xml, but i am new to joomla. Any hint would be greatly appreciated.

Greetings,
dorian.

You would like to translate the component not the module. I'm sorry i don't have documentation for this yet.

I have a experimental version for you 0.9.9.3 attached and a jdiction.xml for joomgallery

please copy the jdiction.xml to administrator/component/com_joomgallery and install 0.9.9.3 this should work.

if there are any errors please report them.

Wahoo! Thank you very much. I will try it out and report my findings / additions. Due to not being accustomed to joomla this might take some time.

Greetings, Dorian.

Doublepost with a reason: Installed experimental JDiction with joomgallery-XML. Here are my first impressions.

To sum it up: (Almost) everything works beautifully, without any additional programming. Congrats, great work.

Only a small drawback for the existing categories. For some -to me- unknown reason, the link in the flag for the translation was wrong (only for preexisting categories) and even if i entered the right link in the browser URL the translated gallery would not show up (there where some capital letters, were they did not belong and sometimes there even was a link to the main category instead of one to the subcategory, i was in. I did not get the pattern for this behaviour.). I still got the 404. I will test this further and try to recover the preexisting/faulty galleries.
Another side-effect was that a working translation on an article (here a '-en' was added as a postfix) was also defunctional, because of a wrong link on the language flag. A new article worked out of the box.

Greetings, Dorian.

To my embarassment i found out, that i simply did not translate all nested subcategories and/or mesed up some alias, which might have caused the main problem. After having moved all pictures in new categories, everything is working just fine. I even can't replicate the errors i had before. I didn't even need to go into the code or XML-File.
Thank very much for your helpfullness, but we (mainly my wife) are rebuilding her website, which gave us the oppoturnity to start from scratch. So there was actually no real harm done to existing content.
Greetings Dorian.

This would work for modules?

it doesn't matter if you display the content in a module or a plugin or a template or a module. As soon as it uses the joomla database adapter.
