change language rule - redirect problem

change language rule - redirect problem

I follow the tutorial written by metamodguy about changing language in J1.7 as result of a rule and it works..

My problem is that after changing language i can't do any redirect:

my website has now two lang in the same domain and i want to separate them but there are several links on other blog, forum,.. that point to actual website structure.. which is the best solution to manage and redirect these old url?

Thanks a lot

Re: change language rule - redirect problem

Hi,

can you give me a concrete example of some of the links into the site, and where you want them to end up?

Cheers,
Stephen

Re: change language rule - redirect problem

website.it and website.com point to same folder in localhost

i want to do that:

"website.it" -> ita language
"website.com" -> eng language

after following your tutorial if I go to "website.it/en" .. chameleon's rule change the language from eng to ita and the url returns to "website.it/it"

By the way if I go to "website.it/en/old_eng_link.html" .. the chameleon's rule goes to "website.it/it/old_eng_link.html" .. but "old_eng_link.html" doesn't exist in the italian version of the site and i see a blank page..

Ah, I see what you mean. I'll need to investigate this further. Please bear with me.

Re: change language rule - redirect problem

Can I ask - are you using sh404SEF? Or built-in SEF?

Re: change language rule - redirect problem

Hi,

can you please try the code suggested in this post:

http://www.metamodpro.com/forums/topic?id=830#p3889

I originally specified it to be used in sh404SEF, but actually it's a more robust piece of code even for normal built-in SEF.

Please let me know how you get on.

Best regards,
Stephen
