    Hi all,

    I'm in the process of migrating to Umbraco 8 from 7. So far I have the site running as it works today. Great success! Now I would like to incorporate the sweet new features, like Language Variants.

    In preparing for that, I would like to make sure the current nodes have the correct culture. But Umbraco is making some kind of Culture mix-up with my content nodes. I have set the hostname/cultures of every current root node. But this is not inherited as I would expect to each child node.

    I have four languages: Danish (default), English, Norwegian and Swedish.

    The first node ("DA") is set like this:

    • Language: Danish
    • Hostname: "/da" = Danish

    ... and so on with the other root nodes.

    However, when looking at the URLs given to the root nodes, they now have two cultures (except English).

    • en-US: /da/
    • da: [localhost]/da/

    And even more frustrating is that the child nodes seem unaffected by the culture settings. E.g. the first node in Danish have the following URL and culture:

    • en-US: /da/velkommen/

    This current situation seem to be a problem when enabling Language Variants because the site believe my Danish content is English.

    Any help to fix this is much appreciated!

    Turns out this is a combination of problems... #h5yr to Umbraco Support :)

    First of all: I realized had not followed these steps 100%: https://our.umbraco.com/Documentation/Tutorials/Creating-Basic-Site/Adding-Language-Variants #h5is

    Second problem: I am migrating from a V7 multilanguage site which is very different from V8's language variants. I have posted a request for Umbraco HQ to document what to do in this situation. https://github.com/umbraco/UmbracoDocs/issues/1803

    Third: Simultaneously, I ran into some IIS issues on my local machine, preventing me from transferring changes to and from Umbraco Cloud.

    So... I found this https://dilbert.com/strip/2011-05-16, call it a day and prepare for a huge copy/paste job after I make a fresh clone of the dev environment.
