vB Version: 3.0.0 Rating: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 58
Released: 03 Jan 2004 Last Update: 09 Mar 2004 Downloads: 57
Not Supported Code Changes  

PLEASE CLICK THE INSTALL BUTTON IF INSTALLED!


Hallo,

the vB3 offers the chance to have multi languages, but at the moment it is unfortunally only for registred / logged-in users possible to select a language. Guests / not logged-in users will see always the default language.


With this modification you can offer your guests / not-logged-in users an option to select a language, so they can see the forum and the registration in the selected language. Further the selected language will be set during the registratin as default for the new user.


Short-description

Language-Selection for not logged-in users


Requirements
  • vB3 RC1 or higher (Tested up to 3.0.7) NOTE !! For installation on 3.0.8 or above read this posting !! Thanks to Khashyar for finding this change !
  • Of cource more than one installed language, otherwise this modification make no sense
Installationtime

about 5 minutes


The use of this modification is as always at your own risk !


Jörg


Update 05. January 2004 (added version 2)

Update 09. March 2004 (added version 3)

Update 27. March 2004: Tested in 3.0.0 Gold



Version 1:

In this version you have to enter for each language a menue-entry manually

Version 2:

This version detects the selectable languages automaticly and the menue-entries are created automaticly too. To get the menue-entries, the function "Use DHTML Popup Menus" must be activated. This version has an additional query with each page-call. If you don't like this, use version 1.

Version 3:

This version is based on version 1, but it detects the browser-language automatic and shows the board in the language of the user. This automatic-detection of the user-language was realised by WildChild. Thanks for this extension of my hack. Note the difference to my version 2: My Version 2 detects the installed languages automatic, version 3 detects the language which is set in the users browser !



Note: A german version of the installation-instructions you will find here at vbulletin-germany.com

That's a nice hack - but I would love to have one more thing: Is it somehow possible to have the installed languages displayed automatically? It's just, that we already have four languages: English, German, French and Luxemburgish - and we will have a fifth soon (Italian). I would love to not have to change the templates for every language again -> /me being lazy

Possible is nearly everything... It is always a question of time.

But I don't like the idea not so much. Not because of the time, but such a change would mean you have additionally querys everytime a guest loads the main-page.

For my board I would prefer the template-editing solution instead of having additionally querys. I mean you are not installing a new language every week..

If you insist upon this automatic, I will see if I have time and if I could manage it.

The additional query (should be one) would only be for the guests, right? Well, that should be manageable by the server

This is a wonderful hack... thank you for posting it...

I am actually looking for a similar hack for VB2.x...

I have five language templates on my websites vb (www.russianmeetingplace.com/forums), and would like to find a way for users to be able to register in their own language...

I would appreciate if anyone has any ideas..

Thanks,

Khashyar

Nice to hear you like my improvement Khashyar.

For vB2, have a look here.

With this hack, you can add a style-seleciton on your forum-home page.

Thank you, Joerg...

Will that vB2 hack allow users to register in the language that they choose? Or.. will they still need to register in English (or the default forum language?)

Thanks again,

Khashyar

I suppose you have solved the multi-language with different styles. With this hack, you can select styles. And I think, if the user have selected a style, the registration will come up in the selected style.

You should try this. Another solution I don't know for vB2.

I didn't need to install the 2.x hack... actually, an admin. at vb.org just gave me a line of text to add to any link code (i.e., "register in German" html link , for example) that allowed people to register in their own language....
