    Article Manager v1.0

    I understand your logic but I think it would be better if all the articles show up in the infobox irrespective of the store language, let the user decide if they want to read it or not. Could it not be implemented by either providing additional fields like the admin area and the user has the option to either write the article more than once, or have hidden language fields that autofill to the other languages available to the system with whatever was written and submitted by the users? I noticed that articles submitted in the current store language by users only become available to the admin page for that language. What I mean is that if the store is in english and an article is submitted for approval, it will only be visible in the article manager area of that language in the admin page if the admin has logged in for that language. ie if the article is submitted when the store front is in a different language the admin will have to log out of the english admin and log in with the other language in order to see and approve the article. I know what I wrote is a bit confusing but I hope you can make sense of it. Thanks by the way for the great work you have done so far for osc.

    OK so I deleted all the old authors including articles from the admin page and created a new ones. For some reason now everything works as it should. Both languages display the articles in the infobox. However I have noticed a new problem regarding the 'submit your own article' from the store front. If the article is written and submitted by a user from the store front only the current store language options and fields are available unlike the admin page where all available language fields are available. This creates the problem that the article will only be available and visible in the language that it was written in. Also only the English language submitted articles become available in the admin page for approval. Even though the data does gets written to the database for the non-English, the articles are not available in the admin for approval. I already had enabled the boxes.

    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately it didn't work, same outcome with SEO turned off. The article entries are created in the database with the correct language ids but for some reason they are not displayed. I will examine the installation instructions again but I am confident I didn't make any mistakes. I am using OSC 2.3.1.

    Hi, I am having problems with other languages. The infobox does not show the articles when a language other than English is chosen. Is there a conflict with the Ultimate_Seo_Urls_5_PRO_r205 contribution?

    Hi I had this problem for my 2.3 OSC, all that was missing was define('FILENAME_ARTICLE_BLOG', 'article_blog.php'); from the catalog/includes/filenames.php It is included for drop over files but not included in the instructions for manually editing the files.

    Any luck? I am also having the same problem but with greek. It is supposed to have been fixed with revision 205 but I noticed that the index.php file included with the contribution in the extras folder for sitemaps is still rev 203. I am fortunate to have a few products so I can alter the generated sitemaps manually but this definitely needs to be addressed.

    Thank you for the reply, are you referring to the language_selection.php file from post #2969? Regards,

    Hello, I have installed OSC 2.3.1 I am having 2 problems with the contribution http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/7704. My site is in 2 languages greek being the default and english. I have sucesfully installed the contribution. Problem one is that whenever I click on a Greek product or category I am getting a page does not exist with a URL of garbage characters. The English works fine. I have temporarily fixed this by creating a character conversion map, but I want the URLs in Greek not greeklish. I know it is possible, as I have seen it on other sites but using oscommerce 2.2. Problem two is with the sitemaps, I have installed the usu5 XML sitemap from the same contribution under extras, but now whenever I generate a sitemap the contents of sitemapIndex.html, /sitemapCategories.xml /sitemapProducts.xml /sitemapManufacturers.xml /sitemapCategories_english.xml /sitemapProducts_english.xml /sitemapManufacturers_english.xml the contents of each language's xml only display the greek URLs. However the english xml do include the /en/ path to indicate it is the english site but the url is the same as the greek ones even though they have different product names. Can anyone please point me in the right direction? Regards,
