I have setup 10 languages for a project which are all working fine when accessed directly, eg 'craft.dev/fr/page','craft.dev/zh/page','craft.dev/es/page'.

However when in admin there are two ways of previewing the translated content. Side by side preview shows the translation fine and uses an admin URI with the locale on the end of the admin url. But if you external preview the local is not in the URL so throws a 404.

Is this a missing feature or a config issue? I was expecting the locale to appear in the external url


My config looks like

'siteUrl' => array(
    'en' => 'http://craftyCMS.dev/en/',
    'ar' => 'http://craftyCMS.dev/ar/',
    'zh' => 'http://craftyCMS.dev/zh',

Share link never has the locale in it.

If you define your base site URLs using the siteUrl config setting (using the array syntax), then clicking the “Share” button should bring you to the appropriate locale’s URL.

  • Thanks Brandon - will repost 2nd Q My config looks like code 'siteUrl' => array( 'en' => 'craftyCMS.dev/en', 'ar' => 'craftyCMS.dev/ar', 'zh' => 'craftyCMS.dev/zh', ); code Share link never has the locale in it

    And those locale IDs are exactly the same as the locale IDs in Settings > Locales? Oct 8 '15 at 21:01
  • Yes they are all their. But i think i am being stupid now - are all my routes/urls for a section meant to have the locale in the 'Entry URL Format' list per language. This makes it work [slaps head]

  • No, they shouldn't. Can you please send in a support ticket from your Dashboard, so we can take a look at the site and see what's going on? Oct 9 '15 at 16:58
  • SOLVED: i had a collapsed return array that was empty hiding in my IDE [facepalm] once removed then it all works as expected. Thanks for the support
