JoomFish 2.5 is the full featured release including several addons such as a simple Router for your SEO URL's. It comes with new features such as the integration into the Joomla core translation techniques and enhanced 3rd party support.
Free documentation including video tutorials, first step documentations and additional material is available on our website. The site also includes an open forum for community support and additional resources.
The Joom!Fish club (subscription required) offers enhanced support options and a range of add ons targeted at commercial and professional websites. These include plugins to further manage/restrict the display of untranslated content, restrict certain menus and modules to specific languages and an additional frontend translation component that allows you to manage translators and what they are allowed to translate.
Not for the faint hearted, or anyone who can't spend more that 48 hours troubleshooting.
Not for me - Sorry.
I have been using it with Joomla 1.0.x for 2 years, and have now finished migrating it to 1.5.x. My site is translated into 10 different languages.
It was a rocky ride with the early beta and release candidate releases, especially because I also use the JoomSEF component, but it now works smoothly.
The guys at joomfish were very supportive, and all the incompatibilities have been ironed out. The combination with JoomSEF works well.
The alternative they give you, is a plugin for Joomfish that costs 60 euros. You should be aware of that.
Doesn't this depend on the way how you structure your site? You refer to the fact that the original content is displayed if the translation is not available. This is a feature you can turn of in the extension as well (standard version). The addon you refer to is to suppress the articles in blog listings.
Warning: require_once(/components/com_joomfish/helpers/defines.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in administrator/modules/mod_translate/mod_translate.php on line 15
Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'components/com_joomfish/helpers/defines.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in administrator/modules/mod_translate/mod_translate.php on line 15
the solution to this, without using a hopefully created backup, is to manually delete one more folder: administrator/modules/mod_translate. At least it worked for me. GL :)
We are sorry for this. It was a bug that is fixed in the stable release. We hope you can give it a second try. The release is just some little testing ahead.
I've been using it for a couple of weeks and it's been perfect. It's easy to use and has all you need to get a website in multiple languages.
Thank you so much for this. One of the best extensions I've used.
PS don't take it as criticism, the component has still great potential and most of all is free, so I admire you for that, but please work with SH404SEF guys and program something working. Many thanks!
We try to work hard together with Yannick to make both extensions work together easily. Can you please give us some more details what went wrong for you? Best may be in our forum at www.joomfish.net/forum?
You can do that, but don't call it 'non-commercial' any more. What else could be a commercial product?
all our code is available on SVN at any time. For more convenience we even changed the SVN structure so that you can simply export the trunk and pack your own version.
The only difference for the club members is that we are doing this and allow them a download. The Club is not related to the product it is related to support and additional extensions.
I installed the component / module what ever it is...all ok...But my frontend of the website stopped working. So i decided to uninstall then my frontend website came back BUT my backend(admin) is now unaccessible.
In my opinion this is not as good as I thought. So I am now having to trouble getting my joomla reinstalled.
I am not going to install this ever again and use an alternative solution.
Sorry this was a bug in the release candidate. It is now fixed and should work as expected.
Looking for a solution, I found many topics with little response. last topics will direct you to a new plug-in as the solution.
This solution only cost you 120 dollar (oktober 2008) with upgrades for a year. So if there is a big upgrade after a year you can pay again.
The work for development shoot be paid but in reference of other paid components this is way too much, a specially without lifetime upgrades.
You encountered a bug in the standard extension, we are sorry for that. Of course does the free of charge / standard version offer front end translation as it did in the past.
The Plus version extends this support with workflow and the possibility to translate selected other elements (other than articles) using the frontend.
Then I installed JoomFish, cause I need to use three or more languages.
The combination of these two plugins creates a fatal error and the whole site is not running anymore.
Whene I switches off the sh404sef plugin, the website was showing the public-site again.
In the forums of both plugins, I've read a lot of reviews and questions about this problem.
I hope, the creators of JoomFish and sh404sef will help eachother to fix this problem.
Cause I think both plugins should be deliverd in the Joomla-standard-installation.
Not only does this tool allow translating of all our articles, we translate all menu names and many other elements required for the site including custom graphics and videos that change with the language.
I have a team of 26 people involved from many countries with a wide range of technical abilities. Joom!Fish lets me give them appropriate access to create and publish translated articles easily. If they can use a word processor they can create translated articles with Joom!Fish.
The support from the development team is fast and they don't stop until your problem is solved. Supporting the development of this product with the Gold Membership was the best investment I could make for my sites.
If you need to publish your Joomla site in more than one language, get Joom!Fish now. Remember, this is the world wide web.
If the language selector was at the top of the page the whole page would be blank, if it was further down in the page, it would be blank from there. In the source, the code would just be blank from where the Joom!Fish langauge selector should appear.
Anyway, the fix for me was to change the permissions of the mambot/search and mambot/system and the files within to 755 or more open.
