hello,

I have installed the Image gallery module in a multilingual website with Arabic as the default. I created two albums in cms in Arabic names, and when I view them in front-end both album's names get the same url like : mysite.com/gallery/album/-
when I renamed albums to English, each album get it own url like: mysite.com/gallery/album/album1, mysite.com/gallery/album/album2 .. so it seems that Arabic characters are not recognized by the script, and instead they are replaced by a dush for both album names. I checked the tables collation and they are set to utf8..

anyone knows how to correct this?! I appreciate your help..

This is not an Image gallery module problem, the problem is how the CMS handles page title conversion to URL:s. If you're writing pages in a language that doesn't have English characters in it then you will have to give these pages an URL yourself on the Metadata tab.

That's exactly right, Smurkas. It looks like we will have to add a custom album url segment to this module to handle the roman character counterpart of the title.

@samukas, thank you for replying.. I created a page "gallery-page" and it has the Metadata tab option, whereas sublinks "albums" their links are generated by taking the album name as the url, and I can't see any Metadata option like the parent page!
@UncleCheese: that's exacly what we need, a custom url option like in parent pages. Now I have album names in arabic and link to the same page, I would appreciate if there is a fix for now..

Thank you

hello,

ok, this is what I did to add a custom segment url to handle the roman character counterpart of the arabic title:
I added a database field and a textfield to managed it in the cms. The generateURLSegment() function now takes AlbumURL value instead of AlbumName value.

../image_gallery/code/ImageGalleryAlbum.php :

<?php

class ImageGalleryAlbum extends DataObject
{
	static $db = array (
		'AlbumName' => 'Varchar(255)',
		'AlbumURL' => 'Varchar(255)',     //  added new database field
		'Description' => 'Text'
	);
	
....
....
....
public function getCMSFields_forPopup()
{
return new FieldSet(
	new TextField('AlbumName', _t('ImageGalleryAlbum.ALBUMTITLE','Album Title')),
  new TextField('AlbumURL', _t('ImageGalleryAlbum.ALBUMURL','Album URL')),    // added new textfield  
	new TextareaField('Description', _t('ImageGalleryAlbum.DESCRIPTION','Description')),
	new ImageField('CoverImage',_t('ImageGalleryAlbum.COVERIMAGE','Cover Image'))
		);
	}
	
....
....
....
	function onBeforeWrite()
	{
		parent::onBeforeWrite();
		if(isset($_POST['AlbumURL'])) {   // 'AlbumName' replaced with 'AlbumURL'
		  $clean_name = SiteTree::generateURLSegment($_POST['AlbumURL']);     // 'AlbumName' replaced with 'AlbumURL'
			if($this->FolderID) {
				$this->Folder()->setName($clean_name);
				$this->Folder()->Title = $clean_name;
....
....
....
?>

So far this works fine for me. I'm not sure however if it's the best way. I'm waiting for UncleCheese to confirm.

thanks
Said
