Hi, probably a bit late to ask in these Cms7 times, and also this probably has been answered before but I'm having trouble finding good keywords to search for this issue.
Basically, if a site is set up with globalization, and a page exists in two languages it seems like the pages and urlsegments can be mixed in language.
example: page A exists in Swedish and English, the swedish url segment is "foo" and the english segment is "bar" then i can access site.sv/sv/bar and i can access site.uk/en/foo i.e. the converttointernal in the url rewriteprovider doesn't seem to care which language of the page is being accessed.
Is this something by design or a bug which hasn't been adressed in Cms 6 r2
historically in EPiServer CMS the URL's have been very forgiving basically just trying to find any page that matches the segment. In one of the updates to CMS 7 (Patch 2?) we added a new feature called StrictLanguageRouting. Basically it makes sure that you can't use URL's from one language on another language, you'll get a 404 instead.
the forgiveness feels wrong but at least an answer :)
There is actually a hotfix for this available for EPiServer 6 R2 as well that can you can get from developer support.
Here is the bug :
Shahid: Is the hotfix which Linus mentioned avaiable as well? If so, does it apply on top of 6.1.379.502 ?
Yes there is a fix available, but it's not a generic meaning that we have to create a new hotfix for the version you are using (6.1.379.502). Create a support ticket to developer support, write your CMS-6R2 version and also mention if any hotfix is already installed in that environment.
