I'm currently using Joomla! 3.4.8 for my multi-language site, for the member access area I've created menu links of type "connexion" for each language with associations between them. My problem here is, when i switch between the languages the user logs out and i need to log in in each time, what might be the problem here? what am i doing wrong? Thank you.

  • Are you using Joomla's built-in language feature or a 3rd party extension?

Please check the status that the language-switch module ist published. If the status is not public, this may cause the issue.

  • The access to the language switcher is public.

The problem may be in URLs.

Please make sure that when language switches you stay on the same site version and not going from www to non-www and vice versa.

Cause if this is changed - you may be logged in at first version and you would be logged out at second.

  • Where can i change the URLs?

  • check livesite variable in configuration. php (I'm personally avoiding to use it) and set up htaccess redirects
