content/edit language selection always propose to create a new translation in 4.3 (admin2)

Monday 05 April 2010 5:02:49 pm - 3 replies


I just upgraded one of my eZ Publish instances to 4.3.0 and I noticed that when I want to edit an object (by clicking the pencil in sub-elements frame), eZ Publish always propose me to create a new translation instead of just edit the first one like it was in previous admin design.

Well, I could check the right radio button, but this is quite disturbing for a day-to-day user, isn't it ? So I looked further and I found out that both of my EditLanguage radio buttons were checked (I have fre-FR and eng-GB activated), so the browser naturally chooses the last one.

I wondered why both were checked and so I looked into design/admin2/templates/content/edit_languages.tpl and found a weird line of code (line 68) :

{def $select_first_language = $object_create_languages|count|eq( 1 )}

and further (line 71) :

<input name="EditLanguage" type="radio" value="{$language.locale}"{if $select_first_language} checked="checked"{/if} /> {$|wash}

I real wonder the utility of $select_first_language...

As a workaround, I made an override of that template in order not to disturb my contributors, but it's quite weird, right ?

Any idea ?
