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...

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

Lightbulb Got it working on vb4

For everyone who's interested: I got this extension working on vb 4.0.3

The HowTo.txt file in the zip tells you to modify functions_forumlist.php with this code:


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

instead of that code, simply use this snippet:

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

So you simply have to exchange the userinfo['languagecode'] with userinfo['lang_code']...

A user who selects a different fourm interface language in the backend will afterwards see no forums which are forced to be displayed in a different language.

Up to now, this is the only problem that I have seen with this plugin.

Well I see only german and english.
I guess it depends on what you have installed as front end language packs in your system.

Lightbulb Some additional steps to make it fully work with vBulletin 4.0.3

Ok, I just noticed, that there is a little more to adjust to make it fully working in vB4...

The use of the vB template system of this plugin is deprecated. This results in PHP warnings which are thrown on the profile page under general settings (where you are supposed to be able to select if the forum should only show forums configured for your own language or all forums that are available).

The warning came from a deprecated use of vBulletin's template system in the language plugin hook: profile_complete.

In the plugin manager select 'Lang Driven Forum - Show Form in Edit Options' and replace the deprecated code:


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

with this code:


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

This code uses the new vB_Template class used for rendering templates in vB4. The template hook usercp_options_other is not available in vB4 anymore, but we can register ourselves for inclusion in the profile page template by accessing the $page_templater object directly which takes care of the template rendering process in profile.php.
Since local variables are not visible in the context of that new vB_Template class we also have to apply the little hack of registering the option select boxes value as a $vbphrase to make it accessible in the template. This is what this code change performs. (So for you it should only be copy & paste).

The last step for making the select box (which can be found on "Settings" -> "General Settings") visible and properly working is to adjust the templates a bit:
  1. search for the template nex_lang_driven_forced and replace it with this content

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

    This will use our $vbphrase hack to select the proper option and furthermore adjust the design of the select option to the current default template.

  2. We have to include this template which we registered as 'nex_lang_driven_forced' on the profile page in the profile page's template.
    So search for the template named 'modifyoptions' and alter the section for 'languageoption' at the very end:


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

    Add an additional 'div' element which will contain the language display option:


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


Save and now it should work. Well it did for me anyway

Sorry Nephalim but I think you're totally in the wrong thread. This is a plugin which will allow you to have forums in your board were people post in different languages. So you can show all your german boards to your german users and all your french boards to your french users while hiding those of the other language.

It has nothing to do with the language of the vBulletin interface.

If you are looking for language packs, just google them or search on the forum at vbulletin.com. They are really easy to find.

Just what I was looking for also - many thanks!

Two important questions for me please:

1. Can this feature work on articles, blogs, projects as well as forums?
2. Is there a language select feature for the VB header

Thanks again
