Localization of GroupName and BlockType

Vote:
 

Hi,

I have a few questions regarding localization in EPiServer 7.

GroupName

You can put a GroupName on your (in code created) content type class. How can I localize this text? I've tried the solution found in Alloy, but I can't get it to work. Same thing goes for the GroupName set on a property defined in the class (in order for the property to end up on a "custom" tab). What is the correct setup?

 

BlockType

The second question I have is regarding block types. I have no problem localizing page types, but I can't get it to work with block types. I've tried both of the below options, but without any luck:

 

            <pagetype name="TeaserBlock">

                <name>A teaser</name>

                <description>Awesome teaser</description>

            </pagetype>

 

            <blocktype name="TeaserBlock">

                <name>A teaser</name>

                <description>Awesome teaser</description>

            </blocktype>

 

Thanks for any input :)

Awesome! Got it working with block types... only thing that remains now is GroupName. Anyone? 

Thanks :)

You can localize GroupName for both contenttype and property "GroupName". Unfortunately the contenttype.groupname only localizes the prefix of the page type in admin mode.

Regarding that group names does not use the translations when creating pages and blocks, this has been fixed for the EPiServer CMS add-on upgrade soon to be released.
