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.
Being able to turn a menu item on or off depending on the language would seem to be useful to many but for my simple site Joom!fish was ideal.
Thank you very much!
But I have the same problem which many other people have too I think, I have great problems with not being able to make the menu language dependent. I think allmost all sites that are set-up in a few languages need it.
So I am a bit stuck regarding that feature. Hope they have a sollution soon. Apart from that one of the best extensions!
It is easier for me to start a multilingual site with M17n, you can start the structure because there is a language selector which is efficiently linked to the menu manager. M17n has no translation manager for articles yet, but you can multiple your articles in different languages.
Hopefully, next JoomFish 2 may have a translation manager for menus.
Now I want to create a new 1.5.2 site using JoomFish 2.0 beta (for testing) and I want to use English, Spanish, French and Portuguese initially. However, I can't find language packs for either Portuguese (Portugal, not Brazil) or French. To add to the confusion, many of the language files listed in 'Extensions' don't offer intuitive names or descriptions, and don't always call themselves 'language packs'.
What's more, I've posted messages in the JoomFish forums on the subject, but get no replies - other users posting related questions get no useful replies either. No replies to my emails either.
If this extension is going to get really popular and excellent ratings, we (the users) must have easy access to a definitive list of available language packs.
I'm giving-up on JoomFish for now, and going to try M17n. :(
With joomFish, from the frontend of Joomla, you can select a page, than if you change the language and edit the page you can edit the text and translate it simply. Now you have the page with the translation.
Thanks to JoomFish!
> Wrapper links not working getting emtpy wrapper frame
In the developer forum, he don't recognize this as a bug. There are others users that are asking for url translation, but in my case, wrapper component don't work. Need only to translate the links name, not diferent url.
In my opinion, translate url (different url for diferent language) can be included as option or if specified) but wrapper functionality must be fixed as is.
sorry for my english
One small thing - 'Link to URL' - I would have liked to have linked to pdf's in different languages by changing the link, not just the title of the link.
Otherwise - does exactly what I need it to.
Be forwarned, this is NOT an auto translator. Look elsewhere for that. Joom!Fish simply gives you the support needed to have other language equivalents of every aspect of your site. I have used this successfully on a site which is running English and Japanese concurrently, with the Japanese translations done by a professional translator.
Unlike other (poor) reviews I have not had any issues whatsoever with this component, and I'm not a programmer/elite user. It took me about 5 minutes to install and get up and running, and haven't had any issues with it so far. Admittedly the site I am currently using it on is not an intense site - it's simply a brochure site with minimal content and no other components installed.
Treat your users and site visitors with respect. Unless you want to completely insult them, their language and their culture, don't use auto-translators. I'm a trilingual speaker and it's insulting to my intelligence visiting sites that have been auto translated.
All feature are working bug-free so far. Client is thrilled! Thanks to JoomFish I have a new Joomla convert.
Big thanks to the developers for GPL'ing such a powerful, and well-written component. I will be donating to this project.
Unfortunatelly it seems that the joomsfish was not yet upraded to joomla 1.5 !?!??!
In my case, I complained a lot about the who's online getting $ strings in the frontend and the confirmation codes messed up. It was totally the none/not updated Chinese language package fault. There is a new UTF8 version of Chinese language package at the very last page.
All in all, thanks Alex for this great component! :)
