I am beginner and testing Magento 2.0.1 with the Luma template to setup a dual language shop. I have created a second Store view for the second language (German) but new blocks with same identifiers are simply not shown. I have followed the same approach as when creating new content pages earlier, which worked well and as expected. But not so for the content blocks e.g. "contact-us-info" or "footer-links-block" :-(
These are my steps:
- Limit the Store View of an existing block, e.g. "contact-us-info" to the "Default Store View" (English)
- Copy the contents of that block and create a new block with the same identifier for the second Store View (German). However, the block is simply not shown in the frontend after I switch to the second Store View in the frontend.
More puzzling: Even if I change the identifier e.g. from "contact-us-info" to "contact-Blabla__" the block is still shown as before! It appears the block identifier is not actually used at all (hard-linked?).
Question: How can I create a second (translated) contents block for a different Store View? What am I missing?? Could somebody please be so kind to drop me a hint what I am doing wrong?
