Set forum-language automatic to browser-language for first-time-visitors
Mod Version: 4.0.001, by JoergZ (Member) JoergZ is offline
Developer Last Online: Dec 2012 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.3 Rating: (4 votes - 4.75 average) Installs: 35
Released: 24 May 2010 Last Update: Never Downloads: 164
Not Supported Uses Plugins  

Short-description

This is an update for vB4 of my older version.

This Hack detects the browser-language automatic and shows the board in the language of the user, if the user has never been at your board before or has no cookie for your board.

The mod was rewritten and don't need any manual edit anymore as in earlier versions.



Requirements
  • vB 4.0 (Tested with 4.0.3)
  • Of course more than one installed and selectable language, otherwise this modification makes no sense
Installation

Easy: Only import the product-xml -> Done


PLEASE CLICK THE INSTALL BUTTON IF INSTALLED!



Support

I did not marked the "Supported" box, because I may have not the time to react immedeately to questions. But don't worry, I will not abandon you



------------------------------------------------------------------------


If you want to test the hack after installing, do it like this:

- Open a new browser-window and use the "in private-mode"
- Set your language preferences in the browser
- Go to your forum homepage

Note: It is necessary, that your installed languages have the
correct id in the field "Language Code"
(AdminCP -> Languages & Phrases -> Langauge Manger -> Edit Settings)
Where to do that? There are no numbers like in the old version ^^

In the settings of your language.

As I wrote: AdminCP -> Languages & Phrases -> Langauge Manger -> Edit Settings

There the field "Language Code". A list of correct languages-codes can be found e.g. here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ISO_639-1_codes

I attached 3 screenshots.


Usually the language-code is correct, after you import a language. At least for the official languages. I wrote it in the description, just to make it sure it's there, because my little hack needs this information.

Hi !

Nice to hear you like this little modification.

There should be no problems having it installed together with the translation-mod.

Hi COL NIL SATIS,

This hack has only an effect for people, who visit your board for the first time, or have no cookie stored for your site.

Existing members usually have a cookie and have saved their preferred language in the board-settings. In this case my hack has no effect, because these settings have a higher priority. In other words: Existing members will not notice any change when you install my hack. (Except they use the "log out" function, then the cookie from the board is removed).

If you have furhter questions, don't hestiate to ask.

Best regards
Joerg
