How does home page get set?

Feb 20, 2014 at 6:44 AM
When enabling the module and i go in and create a new page I do not get the option to set as home page.
Why is this happening?
How do you manage home pages when using this module.

I am also having this issue using Orchard 1.8.
Note that I have upgraded the RM.Localization to .Net 4.5 and replaced any ASP.NET MVC reference to the current one: MVC 5.1 for which the dll can be found in the lib folders of the latest Orchard src..

figured it out.
the shape that renders the checkbox is overriden by rm.localization.
Enable Alias UI feature and set the home page from there.

I can only make "/" point to one culture using the Alias UI. So I have to choose a default culture.
If I enter "/" I have to set it to only one content such as "Content/whatever/34". So whenever I access the translation of that content, the layout does not know that it is "another" homepage but only translated. Am I comprehensible?

Worked it out by replacing
        if (aliasMap.TryGetAlias(currentCulture, out routeValues))
        if (currentCulture.Contains("fr-") || currentCulture.Contains("en-") || currentCulture.Contains("nl-"))
In LocalizedHomeController.cs

Then, I've set my homepages using the routes /fr-be, /en-us, /nl-be and fixed the locales aliases with the shadow localization.

Call me dumb but I still don't get the whole TryGetAlias with the dictionary set to null (IDictionary<string, string> routeValues = null;). If you got this one, I'd be glad to hear from you :D

Thanks by default the 1.8 orchard doesn't binds homepage with choosen localization .Problem fixed by clicking save on alias ui module on "/" with the my content type.

Thanks again giannik
