    Block List with Vary By Culture


    I'm trying to determine if its possible to have a block list where the items are the same in both languages, but some properties within a block vary by culture.

    For example a block with an image and some text where the list of blocks is the same in all languages, the image is shared by all languages, but the text can be edited in each language.

    I get the impression this isn't possible and that editors must create the block list in each language if they want any part of the list to vary by culture.

    Can anyone confirm this is the case or if its just something I'm not configuring properly in the setting?

    Hi Andrew -

    Sorry Short answer Its not possible 😔

    Varies by culture only really applies to the properties directly on the ContentType, Umbraco stores the cultured values at that level,

    the block editors are then stored in that value, so everything in them is stored for each culture .

    *long answer is always - everything is possible but not with quite a bit of hacking, and probibly quite a support nightmare at the end

    Thanks Kevin,

    I just wanted to be sure I wasn't missing something.

    I have one case where I really wanted the same list in both languages, so I simply made a separate content type and fetch the items with the api.
