i've got a question regarding a magento shop - version 188.8.131.52.
The languages german, english and french are offered to the customer. The "configuation > web" says
-> german: basicurl.com/
-> english: basicurl.com/en/
-> french: basicurl.com/fr/
I think this is basicly ok as well.
The problem i've seen in the shop by showing a detail page in any language, for example has the following path:
(by the way: in the cataloge, the german URL Key is named "uhrmacherlupe" - as far as good)
So i want to change to an other language, for example english so i don't come to the same product, instead i come here:
(in the admin cataloge - product page the english URL Key named "eye-glass-for-watch-makers")
I thought, this may happen in case of the URL Rewrite configuration, but there is no rule with define this.
And this was only a example - the shop has about 1.200 products and nearly every language switch - gets the customer
- sometimes to the upper category page,
- sometimes to another product
- sometimes on the startpage
- sometimes on the 404 error page
I already deleted all URL Rewrite definitions in the database and re-generate a new index of the cataloge rewrite URLs.
But i didn't solved the problem.
Can anyone here tell me, what i should do, for a sucessful forwarding between the languages regarding the product URL Key?
Thanks a lot for your help!
Solved! Go to Solution.
You may use a module o offer this functionality, here is a plugin that allows manual and automatic currency/lang switching,
thank you for your answer. GeoIP might be a nice tool, but it isn't the solution for my linkproblem.
I don't understand why magento is linking to false articles between the languages (sometimes even to a 404-error-page).
Goggle Webmastertools also tells me, that this is not ok :-(
Thanks for your help!
