hello SilverStripe-community,

i'm actually working to get silverstripe running in different languages. the structure should look like this:
eg. -> /enu/shop/details/10 (english version)
and -> /deu/shop/details/10 (german version)

the first URLSegment ist for the language and the region.
i already found a solution getting these language-folders working. but now the problem is - silverstripe prevents duplicate URLSegments in the SiteTree-table.

now my question: where i can find the point where SS appends the "-de-DE" / "-2" at the URLSegment?

i'm using the actual silverstripe 2.4.3.

thanking you in anticipation!

kind regards,

Did you find a solution for that? I am currently facing the same problem in 2.4.7

Hi, we had the same issue. As a workaround we just used one page in the pagetree root and put all other pages as childs. This "root page" has a custom pagetype "language". It has no content but the /en/ URL segment. Not the most elegant way but it works.

Ok, so you put in the "en" from a custom field int your language pagetype, right? But that doesn't solves the problem with same URLSegments? Am I wrong?
