    Vorto and navigation menus

    Hi guys

    I'm using Vorto to create a bilingual site. All is brilliant so far but I have one small problem.

    I'm using the navigation code snippet from the partial views area which displays the page name as the navigation links. However, this means that the page names are not translated. So I have two questions:

    1) is there a away Vorto can be used on the page name

    or

    2) if I add a (Vorto) property called "menuTitle" to each page, how would I call that in the navigation loop?

    Thanks David Umbraco 7.2.8

    Hi David,

    I think the only option is number 2.

    In your navigation loop you can do

    @item.GetVortoValue<string>("menuTitle")

    Thanks, but that code doesn't quite work for me it just displays ("MENUTITLE") as the link name

    Maybe you need change this line :

    @{ var selection = CurrentPage.Site().Children.Where("Visible"); }
    

    into

    @{ var selection = Model.Content.AncestorOrSelf("Site").Children.Where("Visible"); }
    

    Strange that i see your code in the e-mail notification i got and not in this post.

    Sorry Dave, I get a NullReferenceExcpetion on that

    @item.GetVortoValue<string>("menuTitle")
    

    and a ' 'Umbraco.Core.Models.IPublishedContent' has no applicable method named 'IsAncestorOrSelf' but appears to have an extension method by that name.' error before that on

    <li class="@(item.IsAncestorOrSelf(CurrentPage) ? "active" : null)">
    

    It must be possible otherwise no Vorto site would be truly multilingual if nav and breadcrumbs only show page Name

    Thanks for your help. David

    Can you post your entire code.

    It will be easier to see where it goes wrong.

    Change that to

    @item.IsAncestorOrSelf(Model.Content)

    The problem probably is caused because your syntax was using dynamics and mine was using strongly typed IPublished Content

    Maybe read these articles to get a insight in the difference : http://www.zpqrtbnk.net/posts/strongly-typed-models-1
