Title: Any Slider that has full Multilingual functionality?
Post by: seadhna on July 14, 2017, 11:08:32
Hi there,
I'm using the Slidorian module, but it doesn't support multi-lingual websites. Only title, but you cannot translate description text or URL.
Is there any slider module that can translate everything? I can't find in EDC.

Actually, @webgift I realise now I can make the URLs multi-lingual by using Elxis format URLs instead of absolute links, but is there any way to translate the description text in Slidorion?

Just to clarify: this is when I choose 'user images' as the Source, so that the slides can be manually created.

The slidorion slider uses title and subtitle and already translates them. Which slider shows article intro/main text?

Hi datahell,
in the Slidorion module, on the parameters tab, there are four options in a dropdown for 'Source'. If you choose 'Latest Articles' or 'Category' or 'Multiple Categories' then yes, the subtitle is automatically pulled in the correct language. However, if you wish to show a custom list of slides and choose 'user images' as 'Source', then the subtitle is no longer automatic. There is a field called 'Description' which is manually entered. However, there is no way to translate this into other languages.

Hello,
I updated the Slidorion module for you. Please download the update version [1] from
EDC and update me if something went wrong. I haven't tested.

Hi webgift, thanks very much for your help! I have just updated the module. The 'description' field can now be translated. And I have saved EN and ES versions. However, on the live site, the ES translation does not appear. I have cleared all the cache, but it does not appear. The title translation works, but not the description text. If I open the module in the CMS, I can see the translations. Also, the description on the live site is truncated. There appears to be a limit of 62 characters, even though I can enter more in the module.

Hi webgift, I've figured out the limit on the 'description' - I just needed to choose again the number of characters in the parameters tab. The translation is still not appearing though for description on the front-end.

Hello,
Can you please send me PM with a valid FTP and backend access of your site as i would like

to check this out.
The only sure is that there is no any limitation as for the language or an empathy for ES
language. :P

Hello,
Issue found and fixed. The module's (mod_slidorion) php file was outdated!
I updated it to be the same as released on EDC and everything is clear now!
Isn't it?

Fantastic! Sorry about the mix-up of PHP files. This is working great now. Much appreciated!
