I find it nearly impossible to try to fix something that I cannot reproduce on my own system. That's why I find answers to the questions in the pink box saying "Forum rules" so important, especially the steps how to recreate the problem.
From all the problems that are mentioned in this thread I can now reproduce one of them on JoomFish 2.2.3 (and it took me a while after I incidentally encountered the problem to be able to reproduce it for translations that saved well, e.g. getting this problem on purpose):
- Only when translating "Contents" (Translation menu, set Language to my second language (Dutch), set Content Element to Contents, click the Title of an article to translate)
- If, at some point, either
(a) an article has been saved with a truly empty introtext (e.g. not even the "<p> </p>" that for example the WYSIWYG editor may insert) or
(b) the Article Text is truly empty (check with the WYSIWYG editor toggled off) and then save,
then the article text will never be saved okReproduce
Delete Article Text, check there is really no contents with the WYSIWYG editor toggled off, then save the article, then try to save any Article text, with or without Readmore: it won't save correctly.Solution
Delete the translation(s) with problems: Backend > Components > JoomFish > Translation > [Select the translation(s) with problems] > Click Delete on the toolbar. And start translation again (but always with text before the Readmore line or when there is no Readmore: some text in the article).
To be able to save the article even without any text, or without a truly empty introtext (this is: really nothing before the Readmore line that is "<hr id="system-readmore" />" when the WYSIWYG editor is toggled off), apply the solution gofry proposed here: viewtopic.php?f=47&t=8375&p=35301#p35469
I don't think this is the perfect solution, there's probably more to it, but I'd think that's a subject for the Tech-Talk... and this works for the problem that I could reproduce on my system.
And I'd say it's very much possible that in this thread there are multiple problems. I've read the entire thread multiple times now, and from some posts I think the above steps will help, and for some posts I think there might be something else going on, but then there is no info on JoomFish version, and never information on how to reproduce a problem, so there is no way (at least for me) to find a cause.
For any other user for whom the above things don't work, the question will be: what is different in what you are doing or what is different on your setup?
My system and setting details

Note: I only tried to translate things in the Backend, not in the Frontend.
