I am trying to have Google Translate the pages on my website. The embedded App ICON appears, but nothing happens. I have followed the instructions, but pages do not translate. I only find a 4 year old converstion on Google translations here, ,but the instructions don't match the newer version of Homestead.

The way the HTML box is implemented it does not function on a page. You can make it work, but the translate drop down an only be available in the header or footer. You can place the code in the site header or site footer, available from the manage tab on the left, then Advanced.

Hi Drew, Followed your instructions above...Manage Tab, Advanced and pasted the Google Translate Code, but nothing happens. Am I missing something. The Translate Drop down does not appear on the web page, website olsparishchurch.org. It only appears when I paste it into the HTML body element, but only spins with no results.

I am sorry, you are correct. Something doesn't seem to be working there. The HTML box you have on there is an iframe. That is how the HTML box works. An iframe is like displaying a page in a small box on a page. The content isn't really part of the page displayed, so that is why it doesn't work. It does not see your content as being on the same page as it is.

I am going to have the development team take a look to see what the issue may be.

They are looking at it. They do see the problem, but I do not have an ETA for you at this point.
