As much as I'd like to have used XOOPS for this project, trying to get the modules I needed working correctly with multilanguages proved a complete nightmare. Maybe I was being stupid, but it just never seemed to work out for me.

In hindsight, I'm glad I wrote the site's CMS myself for the experience I've gained. Sometimes it's just easier to do something yourself... XOOPS always did seem like overkill for this application.

Thanks to everyone who tried to help me in this thread. I'm sure I'll end up using XOOPS again soon.

PS I didn't choose the colour palette, or even the design for that matter...

Thanks Mamba. I think it was a careless installation that caused the issue. The block is now appearing in the list.

I'm now facing a MAJOR issue :(

The 2.0 repository links to the Russian and Polish language packs are broken and have been since 2007
The 2.2 repository doesn't even have Russian language files listed.

So unless Russian language files for 2.2 do actually exist, I'm going to have to stick with 2.0... except I can't download any language files due to the broken links.

EDIT: Looked on the SourceForge project page and have found loads more language files :)

Anyone? I've resorted to trying old 2.0 hacked installs but nothing seems to be working

Cheers ghia
Hacks are fine... I was just wondering if there was another way.
I've started again with 2.3.3 and xLanguages but I can't get the choose language block to appear. In admin->blocks I choose show all blocks and it doesn't appear in the list.

I've installed the module and edited include/common.php as required.

I hope you meant 2.3.3?

I did, yes :)

In order to create a multilingual site, should I start with 2.3.3 and do the hacks or use 2.0.13.2 and use the XOOPS multilanguage module?

None of the modules listed in the repository appear to do what I want AND are compatible with 2.3.3.

And then there's the easiest multi language hack (EMLH)...

What's the best way to get a XOOPS multilingual site up and running? Are core hacks the best way?

Great news! Thanks for the help everyone. I've got a fresh copy of 2.2.3 being FTPed to my server and am looking forward to getting back into the world of XOOPS :)

DanCurioso... I'll try classifieds to begin with.

Thanks for the helpful replies. XOOPS is sounding more suited to this application than I'd expected.

Google translation is a very good point actually. I'm not sure that he'll like it, but I'll certainly mention it to him.

I just want to clarify how the multilanguage module/hack works. Are you saying that once the module/hack is installed, the admin could simply enter all three translations in the appropriate brackets into the same textarea? That would be brilliant but sounds too good to be true! Would modules need to be rewritten or does it 'just work'?

And which modules would be suitable for displaying the caravan stock lists? I'll be reworking the templates whatever I choose and don't need payment processing so a shop would be overkill. Each, caravan entry just needs a title, description, photo and thumbnail.

Thanks again :)

Hi everyone,
I've built a couple of XOOPS sites in the past but not since the 2.0.13 era - this is my first post in about 3 years. You could say my XOOPS knowledge is a little rusty :)

I've been asked by my stepbrother to make a site for his caravan sales business.

He's very specific about what he's after:

-> Trilingual (Ability to switch between 3 European languages)
-> A page to list new caravan stock
-> A page to list used caravan stock
-> A home page that shows latest stock of used and new caravans.
-> A contact form and a couple of static pages

The caravan stock pages should be quite straightforward, but there are many modules that could do this, and I'm not sure how I'd get the home page to display the latest stock.

The main headache however, is making the site multilingual. Would I need a separate caravan stock module for each language? The one and only administrator would be English.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

That doesn't really surprise me considering your spelling of donations

It is too busy for my liking - in your next design you could include less information on the homepage, and divide up your content more gracefully.
