Go to your ACP, click on the General tab, then go down to FAQ Manager and on that screen, right next to where it says "Read default language files into FAQ database:" Click Submit. Worked like a charm for me.
Thanks for covering the support :)

So, You are importing bbcode.php and faq.php to the database.

How You export them back to the language/help/ folder? Is this not required ?

Its not importing and deleting the original FAQ files/database, just importing. You can disable the extension and the original FAQ will still be there. This just replaces the original with one that you can edit and also import the original from the phpBB database into the FAQ extension. If you want to delte them then I would assume either do them one by one or disable the extension then clear data then re-enable it but doing that will delete everything, even the custom entries.

I hope that all makes sense. :)

I found another bug: Users who are not logged in will be shown the FAQ in English, instead of the default forum language. Example (default forum language is Dutch): https://www.wereldfietser.nl/www/phpbb/faqpage

Do you have both languages active in the FAQ manager?

If I go to /phpbb/adm/index.php?i=-ger-faqmanager-acp-main_module&mode=manage I see both British English and Nederlands. Is it possible to deactivate English?

No idea since you didn't tell me where you got this message.

I did my best to reproduce this, but I can't. :P
even set the boards language to British English but since my user has Dutch as board language, it presents me the Dutch entries.

Can you answer these?
  1. What version of phpBB do you have?
  2. What version of the FAQ manager do you have?
  3. Which languages do you have installed?
  4. Any other extensions that I should know of?
  5. Can you post the result of this query?

    Code: Select all

    SELECT lang, count(faq_id) FROM phpbb_faqmgr GROUP BY lang;

Yeah, noticed that.

Can you check the language preference of the anonymous user?

I think I found a fix. In faqpage.php, line 42 (hah ;-) )

Code: Select all

$faq = $this->handler->get_faq_data($this->user->data['user_lang']);
I changed this to:

Code: Select all

$faq = $this->handler->get_faq_data($this->language->get_used_language());

That is an improvement indeed, thanks. However, this suggests that somehow your anonymous user doesn't have a valid language (or English). Your change uses the fallback array, which is indeed intended for this.

Where can I check/set the language preference of the anonymous user?

EDIT: found it. Yes, setting it to Dutch solved it. Thanks.
