Before the users get registered and can specify their language preference, is it possible to specify the default language of the application? Something like

Thanks.

Yes.

Open the file WEB-INF/config/SystemGlobals.properties and change the value of the key i18n.default to the desired language. Just dont change the value of i18n.default.admin, which should remain to "en_US".

Well,

I meant a different language depending on an externeral condition. For exemple, I would like our French customers browsing the French version of our web site to see JForum in French by default. Our english customers would be sent to JForum in English. That's why I thought that passing a parameter in the URL could be one flexible way of doing it.

Thanks,

Hm, right.

Well, currently it's not possible. I created a new request feature:

Done. This feature is added to the CVS. To use it, pass the parameter "lang" in the URL using a valid language name - any in WEB-INF/config/languages/locales.properties.

In order to have this functionality working correcly, you should not use "Friendly URLs". Example:



There is no need to persist the language through other pages, it is done internally by jforum. Also, it is only possible to change the language using request parameter for Anoymous users and in the forum listing page.
