Description Paolo Benvenuto 2021-02-10 09:32:24 UTC
Italian localization

When no document is opened, the Extensions button in the bottom left points to https://extensions.libreoffice.org/it , which doesn't exist

I confirm this.
For some languages it works: fr, es, de, but for others not: it, lt, ...

Yep, the new site does not support localisation yet: https://redmine.documentfoundation.org/issues/3607

So I guess the URL construction should be changed to not do that.

Code pointer:

The extension site URL is in "AddFeatureURL". It is localised with localizeWebserviceURI function (which should not happen).
Comment 6 Christian Lohmaier 2023-02-15 14:11:01 UTC
any non-essential URLs should ideally use the hub.libreoffice.org style URLs and pass the LO version along with the UI language as parameters. That way the missing pages can be added as time goes on and as they become available/without having to wait for an updated version of LO to be released.

See examples in sfx2/source/appl/appserv.cxx
