Multilanguage
« on: November 03, 2010, 11:15:02 PM »
Hello,

today i activated multilanguage in my xt:commerce online shop.

In the shop everything works fine and the URLs are like this:

German: [external links are visible to admins only]
English: [external links are visible to admins only]

The only problem is, that the generator is only crawling sites with the english language (/en/).
What can I do to get the generator to crawl all pages in both languages?

Please help.

Thanx

Hello,

make sure that there are links to other languages version so that generator crawler can find them.

Thanx, that was the problem.

Anayway, I got another problem.

I tried to create separate sitemaps:

To get the english only sitemap, I used the option "Include ONLY URLs:" with the string /en/

To get the german only sitemap, I uses the option "Exclude URLs:" withe the same string /en/

Both didn't work ???

Hi,

I guess, I found one problem for the "Include ONLY" URLs: option.

I got two strings in the field, seperated with space:

:: and /en/

This apperantly does not work. I thought, if I use two strings, it would work like including only the URLs which match both strings.

If put only the string /en/ in the filed, I got a sitemap with only the english URLs, but also URLs without :: in the string are included. So each string for itself works, but not both together.

About the other problem with the "Exclude URLs:" withe the same string option ...

With this option 0 pages are indexed.

Yes, if you specify "str1 str2" in "Include only" setting, then all URLs matching "str1" OR "str2" are added in sitemap.

Ok, but that's not what I want.

Is there any other possibility to add only URLs matching "str1" AND "str2"?

And how about problem no. 2?
Why are all Urls excluded, wenn I put str2 (/en/) in the field "Exclude URLs:" withe the same string?

... and do I really have to clone sitemap generator in order to create two different sitemaps (German/Englisch) for one website?

Currently there is no such an option, unfortunately.

I have the same problem   :(   Instead, with the free version it works ok...take /es/ instead of /en/.... this means that there is a solution...

POSIBLE SOLUTION: In the back end of content manager, desactivate languages that donīt want to show, then crawl the site, generate the sitemap and then activate it again... It worked for me..
Anyway I hope  XML-Sitemaps can solve this issue :)
