We are actually having quite a few issues with the module, but trying to focus specifically on this one issue, the entry status, for this ticket.
We have the detailed translation entry status enabled in the settings: /admin.php?/cp/addons/settings/publisher/general/misc
It mentions this text “If set to yes, the listing views of entries, phrases, and categories will have a marker next to each row indicating which languages it has been translated too. Green markers indicate complete, and grey markers indicate incomplete. **Be sure the accessory is installed, and all member groups have access to it.**”
What is the accessory?
Is there NO status for DRAFT?
We are having an issue when you view the EE entry list, where the translation status is coming back as GREEN (complete) for each language and with a status of open, when the translated content is in DRAFT form for the second language.
There seems to be ONLY one language being checked here via ajax upon page load.
The ACT for the ajax_get_entry_status is ONLY firing for ONE language upon page load.
How does it inspect for the second language or multiple?
For instance, when the entry list loads, and that ajax fires, this is the URL: /?ACT=30&site_id=1&lang_id=1&id=2877%2C2876%2C2875
our ACT 30 is the ajax_get_entry_status, and it’s only looking for lang_id=1 (the default language)
Which is correct, NONE of these entries are in DRAFT for the LANG_ID = 1.
There is no ajax call for any additional languages happening, even though we have LANG_ID=2.
If I modify the URL and view the results for LANG_ID=2 I see that the second language’s version is in fact in DRAFT.
But the entry list shows all these as OPEN, and not a single DRAFT status.
The second ajax call for the ajax_get_translation_status outputs each language.
Shouldn’t there be an indicator/status that let’s us know content in another language isn’t published (i.e. DRAFT), or respond in the same manner, entry_id and status for each language set? Like this for my dataset shown above:
We see everything as GREEN for the detailed language completeness, but the OPEN/DRAFT seems to only be for the PRIMARY language, and not all languages enabled.
I don’t see any method in the EE CP to change my language id so that I can view/edit the content in the secondary language and thus the ajax would fire and show all these items as DRAFT.
I see this addon “Publisher Language Control” but that doesn’t offer the functionality we’d need or expect with the detailed translated language status, nor the draft status of a translated entry.
Thank you, please advise.
