Multilingual Associations

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
So I'm familiar with how to use the multilingual associations feature of Joomla 3.7 and can see that we can set a language for an SPPB page at present, however there doesn't seem to be a way to then associate the various SPPB pages directly, is this correct?

It may be a limitation of the associations feature that it only works with core items like modules, menu items and articles, rather than 3rd party extensions, so we'd have to rely on creating separate menu items for the SPPB pages then associating them?

Thanks Toufiq, I'd already gone through the tutorial, though it was info I was aware of anyway since this was an existing mutilingual site which now uses SPPB on some pages, however I've now watched the video too.

I can see from your video that the answer to my above question does seem to be that we just have to create menu items for the pages which we can then associate? (In the video there is no "associations" tab which is now present on on 3.7+ sites which are multi-lingual and which can be used to associate menu items and articles so I presume there's no way to use the new Associations system to link up SPPB pages in different languages other than creating menu items for them and associating them instead?

Hi there,

Thank you so much for your feedback. If you wanna multilingual your site then you have to create the menu for the different language.

Menu Associations feature doesn't exist in the latest version of Joomla

Hello Simon!

I understood your question perfectly since I also have a multilingual site and use associations in the way you mentioned. Before your question I didn't realize the potential problem you came across.

I don't know if this is still of interest but I might have found a solution: creating normal Joomla articles and them, having SPPB enabled as page editor, import the original SPPB page into the Joomla article. I tested and it seems to be working. However when using this approach I know that there might be underlying issues. In this case for instance I noticed that the template's Component area must stretch across the entire screen (so you won't have positions on the right or left) so the SPPB page would behave identically with the original one. I use Helix3 so this is not hard to achieve.

And yes, the menu association is available in Joomla 3.8.
