Dec 9, 2012 at 2:08 PM


In installed the module
My dnn version is 6.1.5.
The install went fine.

When I translate a page and click the update button I get the "green" update sucses.
However the tab is not translated.

Somebody has a sugestion or has an advise?

I had the same issue

also use instructions in documentation tab here in codeplex for page description and title

... it will be good to have some documentation how to make other menus to work

Hi Jose,

I use a skin I bought at snowcovered.
You can see it in action at

I can do some editing in the files, however I ' am almost blind in the knowledge of skinning.
Do you mean that I only can use the standard skin with the Apollo page localization?
Is there something I have to change in the skin?

The other changes, concerning the meta tags and breadcrumbs are not so difficult to do.
However, I do not know what you mean with "standard dnn menu" .
Can you please be so kind to explain this a little bit?

With regards, Ton

You can use any skin but you need to use the standard dnn menu.

Have a look to the standard skin in your dnn portal version (minimal extropy or dark knight) and look for menu tag.

try it in your skin...

Maybe with some instruction from Apollo we will be able to use other menus... lets wait and see

Hi Ton,

In you HTML ou ACSX skin file, you have to check witch MENU skinobject is used.

If it is one supplied by the skin vendor, then it's not the standard DNN Menu.

If you have installed a MENU module to use your skin, then you use for sure a non standard skin.

You can just try to put the standard dnn ski on a page to see if the translation work or not.

There are some instruction in the Apollo Source code pakage i think for the menu developer to make his MENU skinobject usable with Appolo Page Localization.

So you can ask the skin developper to make his skin Appolo campatible or to use the standard DNN MENU.

I have setup the standard skin Dark Knight on a page.
The tab localization translated ok with this skin.
However, I got problems When I tried to configer the breadcrumbs and pagetitel.
Also, the Apollo pagelocalization did not work with the dark Knight skin when used in a portal.

The minimal extropy does not work with the apollo lacalization.
Is there somebody who can change the index minimal extropy skin, so I can use this.
Then I have an simple example to change the other skins from the minimal extropy.

From there I have a start point to change the minimal extropy with colors etc.
Also, this modified minimal extropy skin would be a nice download example for other people who want to use the appolo localization module.
