Hi all.
I've built my site in one language. Default english...
Now i want to add a second language user can choose in order to view my site.
So i've enabled i18n and run db build. Then i tried run [mysite]/i18n/textcollector/ but "page not found" error. Anyway in the backend, translation tab is present now...
so i added a new translation in my page and all seems to go in the right way except for fields that i added in extension to the default page class. For fixing this, i added

static $extensions = array("Translatable('myExtendedField')");

in my class description and now, when i flush my admin section, the server cannot answer me.

Another thing: i'm using 2.3.0-rc1 and in origin when i tryed to add a translation, backend section gave me javascript parse error. I had to change in CMSMain.php in line 1293 and 1298 div[1] with div[2] for making feature works (FormResponse::add("$('Form_AddPageOptionsForm').getElementsByTagName('div')[2].getElementsByTagName('input')[0].disabled=true;");)

What can i do for making this useful feature work correctly?

bye

in that case it will be easy for you to add more database fields to the page type.

it is easy to update the script, there are some if conditions which render the correct content to the screen.

if you do any updates I would like to hear about that.

Maybe I'll do it... In that case I'll post, don't worry.

About my problem, i forgot to tell that after the whole process i can see all new tables in the db named *_lang so I think that in part this feature is working.
