How to change the field used for the page names in the cms tree

Lance Keay asked on September 20, 2017 10:11

We are an English company, but have a website that is multilingual. When we use the CMS Desk and switch to another language, all the page names in the CMS Page tree change to be in the new language. How can we define English page names to be used in the CMSDesk page tree? https://www.screencast.com/t/s7BqVD5DkSrD

if you are referring to the URL name (example /contact-us) this is the node alias path and there is one per node, as there is only one node that has multiple language variations.

You can define language aliases through properties > URL and also change it there.

What field that pulls from is in the page type (edit) > fields and the two drop down under the field lists, one for the node alias source and the other for the document name source (which can change per language)

These must be required text fields in order to select from them.

It would awesome to have an answer for this. For the present, I obsession that effective with folders is a good solution (/en/pt/es and so on). I'm contemplating at the present time how I can function with the CMS for multiple language content. The "impermanent" arrangement that I'm attempting is make a Collection "Languages" and after that I made Text Fields on UK dissertation Blog Posts that I called "choose the Language of the Post". At that point, I have to make both Collection Page Templates (for every dialect, for example,/en/blog and/pt/blog and so on). A similar outline, however I'm filtering the Dynamic file that only shows content for the chose language.

@trev - Sorry I didn't see your reply until @rene's today! What I mean is in the CMStree, the name shown to the user. I'd like ALL languages to show the English page name in the tree.

Ah i see now. Under the Page Types there is the a drop down "Page Name source field" set this to the field you want to show up on the tree (also controls the Document Name), it has to be a required text field. Then on your current language put in the name you want, should do the trick!
