So I have an article-like content type and two languages
de (default) and
Some articles must be in
After a migration from another CMS, there are in fact articles in
en only, so only (i.e.)
article.en.txt exist for those articles.
There is a date field, which should not be translatable, because the date should not differ between languages and also an update of this field should not be accidentally be made in one language and not in the other.
If I set the field
translate: false and I only have an
en content file, I can see the date but cannot update it in
en and it is empty in
Cannot sort articles properly when the current language is
de, because the date fields are empty, so I need to implement a custom hacky search for the right field value.
When I create an article via the panel, a
de content file is created, although I might only want an English version of the article.
Making the date field
translate: true results in the first mentioned problem.
So, what this situation really needs is some kind of setup, where default languages do not exist, and where I can create pages in any language, without having a mandatory language version created along with it.
Are there any solutions I do not see?
