Multiple Languages on PhpBB

Post by yorktown »

I have a website in several languages.

For each language, I have a menu option for "message board."

Anyone clicking on it will go to the message board index.php page. The default language for that page is English.

How do I set it so that someone who links from the German page gets German as the language, Italian is the language from italian links, etc?

Help much appreciated.

Essentially, you cant. Whenever a visitor goes to the forum the forums default language will be used.

Only until a member logs in will their personal choice of language be displayed.

I have not seen an easy language switcher about. . .

Good Luck,

You might try Automatic language detection. Not sure if that will do exactly what you want but it might.
