MULTIPLE LANGUAGE Item Meta title & Meta Description Issue
« on: January 01, 2023, 07:43:50 PM »
Dear All,

The SEO plugin doesn't provide the option to define item meta title and item meta description for multiple languages. The option is only for the default language Eg: English.

Randomly checked categories, meta tags can be defined in all active locales:

  To get fast support, we need following details: Detail description, URL to reproduce problem, Screenshots

This works fine for categories as mentioned earlier.
The issue is for items.
The form that shows on Item-Publish page doesn't have option for multiple languages.

I cannot imagine someone would do it for multiple languages.
Checked code, it always use osc_current_user_locale()

Ok.

But what if the user local has not been defined. What shows on Google?
Let's assume we do search on Google in English and the a page from the site shows at position 1 but in Russian language? Would you have clicked that even though it is Number 1?

Even if you translate the Russian page to English and you do not translate the meta titles and the meta descriptions, Google will only show what has been defined which is Russian or?

First, 99% of people will fill only 1 locale
Then, Osclass selects "most suitable", means not-null one.
Search will not use locale data those are not same (i.e. if you search in German, english descriptions are excluded).
