Someone at EPiServer got anything to say about this?
We are adding a language selector to the link dialog, it's coming soon.
While at it, you might want to check out how UrlResolver.GetUrl() works for multiple sites when on one site but trying to get link url to a page on another site in a specific language...seem to recall that this isn't working correctly :)
The link item collection was used on multisite site to setup in the footer all start pages in different languages.
1) In Admin->Config->Manage websites->CurrentSite (http://test.company.com) were set up Hosts:
test.company.pl with pl culture
test.company.sv with sv culture
test.company.no with no culture.
2) The StartPage has a property LinkItemCollection Sites.
3) In edit mode the content editor tries to setup footer links on the sv site to test.company.pl & test.company.no in LinkItemCollection Sites:
3.1.) "Create a new link"
3.2.) In "Edit Link" fills in the "Link name/text" as test.company.pl, checks "External link" and sets http://test.company.pl.
3.3.) Clicks ok. (http://gyazo.com/d9ffa22a81dd33af3de4f15b2348bf6d).
3.4.) Opens the same link in LinkItemCollection and finds that the link to http://test.company.pl was change to page reference to the Start Page (http://gyazo.com/f8478b4a1fd4435f608f1f3c3b774398).
3.5.) Publishes the page.
3.6.) Checks the links in footer and finds that they reference not to the test.company.pl & test.company.no but to the test.company.sv both.
How to set up in link in LinkItemCollection to the start page with different language on the multisite instance?
