I'm trying to get a functional language drop-down list on my forum, in the board rules section but the drop down list won't show any languages to choose between :cry:
language drop down-list.jpg

I took the drop down-list code from /styles/prosilver/template/ucp_agreement.html:

Code: Select all

<script type="text/javascript">
// <![CDATA[
	/**
	* Change language
	*/
	function change_language(lang_iso)
	{
		document.cookie = '{COOKIE_NAME}_lang=' + lang_iso + '; path={COOKIE_PATH}';
		document.forms['register'].change_lang.value = lang_iso;
		document.forms['register'].submit();
	}

// ]]>
</script>

	<form method="post" action="{S_UCP_ACTION}" id="register">
		<p class="rightside">
			<label for="lang">{L_LANGUAGE}{L_COLON}</label><select name="lang" id="lang" onchange="change_language(this.value); return false;" title="{L_LANGUAGE}">{S_LANG_OPTIONS}</select>
			{S_HIDDEN_FIELDS}
		</p>
	</form>

	<div class="clear"></div>

...and I tried for example placing it in your official extension BOARD RULES, in
/ext/phpbb/boardrules/styles/prosilver/template/boardrules_controller.html:

Code: Select all

<!-- INCLUDECSS @phpbb_boardrules/boardrules_controller.css -->
<!-- INCLUDE overall_header.html -->


<script type="text/javascript">
// <![CDATA[
	/**
	* Change language
	*/
	function change_language(lang_iso)
	{
		document.cookie = '{COOKIE_NAME}_lang=' + lang_iso + '; path={COOKIE_PATH}';
		document.forms['register'].change_lang.value = lang_iso;
		document.forms['register'].submit.click();
	}
// ]]>
</script>

	<dl>
		<dt><label for="lang">{L_LANGUAGE}{L_COLON}</label></dt>
		<dd><select name="lang" id="lang" onchange="change_language(this.value); return false;" tabindex="6" title="{L_LANGUAGE}">{S_LANG_OPTIONS}</select></dd>
	</dl>








<h2 class="boardrules-header">{L_BOARDRULES_HEADER}</h2>


<div class="panel bg1" id="faqlinks">
	<div class="inner">

<!-- IF S_CATEGORIES -->
<div class="boardrules-categories">
	<div class="mini-panel">
		<div class="inner">	
			<h3>{L_BOARDRULES_CATEGORIES}</h3>
			<ul class="boardrules-menu">
				<!-- BEGIN rules -->
					<!-- IF rules.S_IS_CATEGORY --><li><a href="#{rules.U_ANCHOR}">{rules.TITLE}</a></li><!-- ENDIF -->
				<!-- END rules -->
			</ul>
		</div>
	</div>
</div>
<!-- ENDIF -->

<div class="boardrules-container">
<br>
	<div id="main" class="content">
		<p>{BOARDRULES_EXPLAIN}</p>
		<ol class="boardrules-rules">
			<!-- BEGIN rules -->
				<!-- IF rules.S_CLOSE_LIST -->
						</ol>
					</li>
				<!-- ELSEIF rules.S_IS_CATEGORY -->
					<li id="{rules.U_ANCHOR}">
						<h3>{rules.TITLE}</h3>
						<ol>
				<!-- ELSE -->
							<li class="rule-item" id="{rules.U_ANCHOR}">
								{rules.MESSAGE} <a class="rule-anchor postlink" href="#{rules.U_ANCHOR}">#</a>
							</li>
				<!-- ENDIF -->
			<!-- END rules -->
		</ol>
	</div>
</div>

	</div>
</div>

<!-- INCLUDEJS @phpbb_boardrules/boardrules_controller.js -->
<!-- INCLUDE overall_footer.html -->
It shows the drop down list but without content/text/options.

I have Purge the cache after uploading to server.
Does anyone knows what I am doing wrong?
