Multilingual setup - Page Selector Attribute Add-On

I'm running C5.7.3.1
Starting the multilingual setup and was following a How-To video on YouTube successfully until the part where I had to install 2 free add-ons - Page Selector Attribute and Page Redirect (the Page Redirect add-on won<t install unless the Page Selector Attribute add-on is installed first)... only problem is that it doesn't seem to have been upgraded to be compatible with C5.7. I tried manually installing the package (downloaded the archive, uploaded to my packages directory, extracted the .zip), but when I go to the Extend Concrete5 Add-Functionality the add-on shows up in the list of add-ons waiting for download/install but is listed as a broken package with an error message that says "This package is corrupted. Make sure it has a valid controller.php file and that is has been updated for Concrete5.7 and later".The multilingual set-up ( is definitelyfor C5.7 - And it says that that add-on was installed... Any ideas? Did I do something wrong? I am stuck and I HAVE TO get my site set up for English and French but can't go any further than I have gone.

It sounds like you just installed the 5.6 versions of the addons, both of those addons for version 5.7 install and work correctly for me.

5.7 Page redirect:
5.7 Page Selector Attribute:

Many thanks - worked like a charm... I could have sworn I poured over all he 5.7 add-ons and didn't see it.

So is adding the Page redirect etc part of the Multilingual set up or can this be done without ... eg having the parent / landing page as the home page or does this cause problems with copying etc

Should the core team be adding this as default ?

i'm also confused.

we're using the latest stable release 7.5.1

1. are addons like "page redirect" and "page selector attribute" required?
2. are the two file in hissy's how-to required?

i also followed the videos of concrete5 and concrete5 official video about multilingual setup. although both videos are are published before version 7.5.1.

i tried all variations and it still won't work.

thanks for any solution

The How-To by Hissy you linked is no longer required as multilingual stacks/global areas are now built in to Concrete5 (version 7.5 I think).

The addons you mentioned are not required for enabling multilingual-ness.

The original question of this thread was to troubleshoot the two page redirect addons , I'd suggest creating a new thread for your own issue.
