There was a bug in EPiServer CMS 5 which I think was fixed in EPiServer CMS 6 that creates a fall back to the master language for the page when doing a direct access to a page in a language that does not exist.
Thanks for your reply.
while creating the page in fallback language(master language)it's rewriting the page language to master language,but the language(epslanguage) in the page URL is not changing to MasterLanguage.Because of this if some particular controls are defined in other language are not converting to this master language.
For example i have a page with Userid..and i accedd the page localhost/lv....when the page is created in master language the control still fetching the control name from lv language file..because epslanguage in the page URL is still "lv".
I want to convert epslanguage also to Master language when fallback to master happened.Is there any way to do this?
thanks in advance.
Replacement and fallback language are implemented so that they don't change the language context of the loaded page, just the page content.
Check the CurrentPage.LanguageID. This should probablyt reflect the actual language of the page content if fallback/replacement language comes in place. You should never take decisions depending on the incoming url, either check the CurrentPage.LanguageID or the CultureInfo.CurrentCulture property (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.globalization.cultureinfo.currentculture.aspx).
Thanks for the reply.Now i found the problem.
Actually we are using FriendlyUrlrewrite.Please check the part of the code
protected override bool ConvertToInternalInternal(UrlBuilder url, ref object internalObject)
if (url == null)
if (this.IsVppPath(url, out flag))
if (!SimpleAddress.SimpleAddressToInternal(url, ref internalObject))
LanguageBranch languageBranchAndPath = GetLanguageBranchAndPath(url.Path, out str);
if (languageBranchAndPath == null)
languageBranchAndPath = LanguageBranch.Load(ContentLanguage.PreferredCulture);
ContentLanguage.PreferredCulture = languageBranchAndPath.Culture;
internalObject = page.PageLink;
In the above code if i access localhost/lv......in ConvertToInternalInternal method ..it is taking url.path="/lv/"...because of that languageBranchAndPath is coming for lv language.
Till it is converted to internal URL..we don't know..the page is contained in that particular language.
once after converting to internal url..in this case it is localhoat/default.aspx?....we don't know that particular page is present in that language or not.In this case the page is not present in "lv" language.
but in the above code in the url.path..we used "lv" language.
in the above code when i access the URL localhost/lv...if i pass url.path as "/en/" instead of "/lv"...i am getting all the contorls names from xml files also in english...
my requirement is all the control names should also come from "en"(master language)when particular language doesb't exist
so can you advice me in this case.I hope you understood my requirement in this case.
I just tested some and you can differ the preffered language and the actual language of the current page like this:
In PageBase there is a virtual method that sets the language settings for the current request:
protected override void InitializeCulture()
You could override this, set the UserInterfaceLanguage to whatever language the CurrentPage property has been loaded with and the labels and the content for CurrentPage should match.
We are using Multilanguage site.For Example we have defined start page of the site in Swedish Language(Ex:localhost/sv).We didn't defined the start page in Finninsh language(Ex:localhost/fi).But the page is dispalyed in finnish when we accessed localhost/fi.
What i mean to say is It is possible to display local language on any site/url even though the specific page language version is not loaded in EiServer.
please let me know how to overcome this.
thanks in advance.
