    Umbraco 7 Api Controller get content url with language

    Hi all,

    Currently, i got an issue when I am getting the url of item in "UmbracoApiController".

    The url always return default language, which is "/xxxx" instead of "/zh-HK/xxxx" I have set the Culture on umbraco and also add these code before I get the content url.

    Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = new CultureInfo("zh-HK");
    Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = new CultureInfo(language.Replace("zh-HK");

    var url = item.Url;

    Any ideas or solution for this case?

    I think custom Umbraco API's that inherit from UmbracoApiController aren't culture aware. The URL will always be ~/Umbraco/Api/Controller/action no matter which site you call them from.

    If you need your API method to know what culture to use, you may have to pass it as a parameter. Something like...

    Hi Ben, Sorry for late reply. Yea, I have already pass the language through the parameter, and set the culture. The value which i get from vorto field is fine and correct. However, when i get the item.Url, the URL is always English. So i need to do the modification myself such as add the /lang/ before the url. Is there any wrong? Or it is normal.....
