With this engine, you have a full control over a Multi-Language forum. If you have a population of english, french, spanish and other languages, you may have a need for this if you have specific forums for each languages...

When you want to enforce the users to only see the forums they can post in, or the ones they can read in their own language, you can edit each of your forums to fit your needs

This is for the Admincp where you edit your forums.

Now you can give your users the ability to choose what kind of forum they can see. On registration or when they edit their Profile options, they have these choices:

Here is when the user is registering: (optional entry)

As an admin, you will continue to see all the forums, but you will see an indication of the language each forum is using, because the languageid for each modified forum will show in the forumlist...
A note coming from Jelsoft, regarding the possibility that a multiple licenses would be required if you use this addon...

This is one forum and it can be navigated from any area to any area.

I concur, only one license is required and I am of the opinion that the license agreement is not contravened.

note: on jan. 2nd, 2010, a query_read was replaced by a query_first... to avoid inconsistancy with mysqli... simply re-import the product...

vbenhancer 23 Dec 2009 03:09

like i received more than 150 requests to update my stuff to 4.0 in the last 3 days, i suppose i will have to reconsider it... btw as i have to make a living of my spare time, i do not know the best formula to make it so yet... i'll see!

GameFrame 27 Dec 2009 21:34

can you indicate me the place where you get this error?... when you set the language, or when you visit the forum?

EDIT: forget the question, i see the problem... i'll have to change the installation and forget about the hook... vBulletin use eval for the hooks, and it break loops.... the change will be simple, i come back with the solution.

vbenhancer 29 Dec 2009 17:31

Version changed for 1.5.1, the error in the hook, called xorex is now corrected. Re-upload the product and follow the instructions back in the HowTo.txt file *(remove the hook stuff and place the block of code instead)

xorex 30 Dec 2009 16:54

Now work fine.

Thanks !

I have a very significant issue here:

When new users are attempting to register, they can't as the system (post install) throws the following error:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I attempted to disable the registration pluging with no success. I've now disabled the entire project as folks have to be able to register for the forum. :(

vbenhancer 02 Jan 2010 14:43

thanks for the report... query_read is making problem with mysqli when not used properly... i had a code error, thanks, it is now corrected, you simply have to re-import the product.

Nice mod. If you click new messages it will display only messages from forums in your language (if you select to see only them) ?
Interesting mod to cope with multilanguage.

Selection of language forums should be in a more prominent position (like on each page or at least forum home) given the fact that you install this only if you have multilanguage users.
Or the en* and en should be links to control panel where you can change settings.

I see very useful this mode if you can exclude from New Messages search the forums not in your language.

It's a very nice and usefull script. But i have a little problem.

When i switch the language in the usercp and i go to the forumhome, logged in as administrator, i can see all forums (english and german). Only the mods and the useres are able to see the forums fit to the choosen language.

This is not a problem, this is by purpose... as admin, you also have access to all passworded forums, all closed and locked forums... being an admin is to be in charge of everything... so things do not change...

My engine is not giving more filtering on usergroups, this is a per user setting. As admin, you see the " *en " indicator, to show if your forum is set properly...

I'm all with you on that, i need to refine the search engine filtering... i know where to add it, but did not look at this since i coded the engine first (4 years ago)... if i have time, i'll code this option.
