Description David Walsh :davidwalsh 2012-11-07 13:43:07 PST
In researching other slug bugs, I found something very bad:  the incorrect translation slug is sent to the translation edit page.  To duplicate:

1.  Create an en-US document with a slug "html"
2.  Translate to French with a slug of "somethingelse"
3.  Click the edit button for the French document.
4.  Click "save changes"
5.  You'll see that the slug says "html", which is the slug of the root/parent document, *not* the French translation

My research shows that this never quite worked correctly.  If I pass the document_slug as the revision.slug, the translate page 404s.

CC'ing other devs on this because it's a fairly large issue.
Comment 2 David Walsh :davidwalsh 2012-11-07 13:48:38 PST
A few other things I'll point out:

1.  Redirects are being created properly, so this isn't the end of the world
2.  This is probably causing the occasional "slug is taken" warnings.
