PHPbb Chinese language as guest but how to revert to English ?

Post by 1024KBUser » Tue Apr 03, 2018 12:27 pm

I have some language packs English, Chinese & Japanese.

I registered a user recently who wanted Chinese language and it went successfully but after I logged out the default guest template language was Chinese also.

When I login its OK and shows as English but how do I get the default unlogged forum back to English.

I cleared cookies and cleared the cache but its still showing as Chinese.

manage users
click the anonymous box under the entry field
You will then be able to edit the guest account.
Choose the preferences from the drop list on the right and change the language for that account to English.

Well, I tried it, its still in Chinese.

I had a look at the language pack and saw these errors.

Code: Select all

The following language variables are missing from the “简体中文” language pack
Missing language variables

viewforum.php
    NO_FORUMS_IN_CATEGORY

common.php
    PAGE_NOT_FOUND

acp/board.php
    EMAIL_FORCE_SENDER
    EMAIL_FORCE_SENDER_EXPLAIN

acp/permissions_phpbb.php
    ACL_F_LIST_TOPICS

cli.php
    CLI_EXTENSION_NOT_EXIST
    CLI_EXTENSION_NOT_ENABLEABLE

Are they significant ?

No its not that site (its another one).

The other site is fine if I switch browser so I think its a cookie issue.

But I cleared cookies so how can it persist and show me the board in Chinese.

The only place the anonymous account gets its language from is the one set for that account.

Want to post or PM the link so I can see as well?

Ill have a look around some more.

Im not sure you would see anything with an account as when I switch browsers everything appears OK, so it must be a cookie issue ?

Ill send you the link maybe you could register and select language as Chinese then switch back to English.

What is the default language in ACP, Board settings? And what is the Override user style setting?

Default language is British English.

The default style is Absolution & so is the Guest style.

UPDATE: Fixed it, had to manually delete the individual cookie from within the browser.

Im not sure why the delete boards cookies feature doesnt work.
