Hello.

I have been trying to make multi language widget. The problem is that, when I choose another language (not English) widget doesn't get data according this language.

Index page (where I added widget) getting new locale after language switch, but widget not. If I am right widget doesn't have locale field at all.

How can I get site locale in widget? Any suggestions?

Thank you a lot

This most likely occured when

1. Create page in language A
2. 'Duplicate' page in language B by means of the 'Translations' tab

In this case the same WidgetAreaID is used for two different pages. Solution I found is to alter the database (create new row in WidgetArea table and change SidebarID in Page table).

Happend to me on SS2.3.7

The problem is already in 2.4, any solutions? Or where is the function to create the new translated page? There we only need to add the creation handler for widget areas...

OK, I haven't activated 'Translatable' for widgets...

Object::add_extension('Widget', 'Translatable');
Object::add_extension('WidgetArea', 'Translatable');

But there is also a bug because when adding a widget now, it will be created for 'en_US' instead of the current language
Here is my config:

Translatable::enable();
Translatable::set_default_lang('de_DE');
Translatable::set_default_locale('de_DE');

// Set the site locale
i18n::enable();
//i18n::set_locale('de_DE');
i18n::set_default_lang('de_DE');
i18n::get_tinymce_lang('de_DE');

I have german (de_DE) and english (en_GB!) pages and there are no problems by switching the language, only the widget areas doesn't work probably. Pages will be save in their language and widgets as Locale = 'en_US'?! Because of that I can't see the added widgets in the backend.

OK I have it by adding simple auto correction on before saving a widget
in sapphire/widgets/Widget.php

   function onBeforeWrite() {
      parent::onBeforeWrite();
      
      // Set locale from the currently choosen language locale
      if($this->Locale != Translatable::get_current_locale()) {
         $this->Locale = Translatable::get_current_locale();
      }
   }

Hey, nothing happened for this bug, but in my opinion the multilingual functionallity is very important for a CMS...
Does anyone know, when it will be fixed?

many thanks for this thread!

I've done the following to avoid hacking the core...

_config.php

Object::add_extension('Widget', 'WidgetExtension');

WidgetExtension.php

class WidgetExtension extends DataObjectDecorator {
   function onBeforeWrite() {
      parent::onBeforeWrite();

      // Set locale from the currently choosen language locale
      if($this->owner->Locale != Translatable::get_current_locale()) {
         $this->owner->Locale = Translatable::get_current_locale();
      }
   }
}
