i18n, rss and sitemap.xml - no parent slug in links.
#1
On my site i used plugin i18n. Default language (that was used for pages without "_") is russian and the other language is english (pages with "_en"). When sitemap.xml generated, it's all ok with default language. Adress("loc") of page with slug "about" and parent slug "me" is

http://sitename.com/ru/me/about/

But the same english page (with slug "about_en") in sitemap.xml have adress WITHOUT parent slug:

http://sitename.com/en/about/

Rule for my fancyurl is:

%language%/%parent%/%slug%/

What can i do with this trouble with adress in sitemap.xml?
Please, help.

UPD. With i18n_search plugin and RSS is the same problem. In RSS all links in non-default language are without parent slug. This problem also in admin panel (when click on # for page_nondefaultlanguage viewing)

UPD 2. I installed again last stable version of get-simple on another host with only one plugin - i18n. Nothing changes. There are no parent slug in links (sitemap.xml) with non-default language.

UPD 3. I think, that problem maybe in i18n_base/sitemap.class.php ($pageLoc=...) or in admin/inc/basic.php (find_url function).

It's look like there is no parent page for /parent/mypage_en, when i try to get it with get_parent(), $data->parent etc.

In fact, plugin(s) i18n does not work correctly with non-default languages.

Works for me. Make sure you use the latest I18N plugin and update at least a page or the navigation to ensure that the navigation cache is refreshed.
I18N, I18N Search, I18N Gallery, I18N Special Pages - essential plugins for multi-language sites.

I get the exact same problem here:

<url>
<loc>https://www.screendream.de/generation/?lang=de</loc>
<lastmod>2016-08-09T19:31:14+00:00</lastmod>

<lastmod>2016-08-07T17:46:26+00:00</lastmod>
<changefreq>weekly</changefreq>
<priority>1.0</priority>
</url>

Where the main language (en) shows parents in the GS created sitemap, but the second language (de) doesn't.
This confuses Google since there are suddenly different paths to the same page.
I use the latest version of i18n and tried above suggestions to no avail. Any recommendations?

Thanks and Cheers,

Tom

It's actually the same on the plugin authors homepage:

<url>

<lastmod>2012-04-13T10:31:53+00:00</lastmod>
<changefreq>weekly</changefreq>
<priority>0.5</priority>
</url>

<lastmod>2011-05-19T16:15:03+00:00</lastmod>
<changefreq>weekly</changefreq>
<priority>0.5</priority>
</url>

Can this be fixed please? I removed my sitemaps from the google webmastertools since they seemed to create more problems than they help, but it would be good to have this working again...

Thanks and cheers,

Tom

Four years later problem is not soved. In sitemap.xml and in rss (i18n search plugin) there are no parent slug's in links. I use last versions of plugin and GS. It is impossible to make sitemap correctly with i18n. Please, fix this.

How about the following workaround: use the string %lang%/%slug% instead, omitting the %parent%, that should make the behavior the same for all languages.
That is, if the workaround doesn't introduce any name clashes...

Yes, I did this on one of my sites. But for another project I need %parent% and something like... %parentparent%.
If my link is http://mysite.com/lang/parent1/parent2/page, why I do not see parent1's slug in sitemap.xml and rss?
It seems, GS and i18n have a trouble with this without changes in code. But I very need that changes.
Maybe somebody can help.
