Following advice in this DNN blog post - Content Localization Walkthrough i've set up a site to have localized aliases as a way of preserving links relative to the site root.
So rather than:
dnn-dev/fr (for French)
dnn-dev/pt (for Portuguese)
dnn-dev (for English)
i've set up:
All good... however, i've noticed that the "language selector" in the site header now doesn't work. Looking at the markup the href for each flag/language is written out as the URL of current page, so (say) clicking to go from French to Portuguese just re-loads the current page in French.
I've tried all sorts of combinations of settings and come to the conclusion that this is a bug and it'd be relatively easy to write my own language selector component. Obviously i'd rather not if it can be helped so if there's any chance of me missing something i'd welcome any thoughts?
