Description

This is related to the Custom Site Header section of Look & Feel on our Web site. We put a top navigation bar which is expected to be showin in different languages depending on the visitor's language (look at http://www.daav.cn/cms/tiki-list_file_gallery.php ). The code in Custom Site Header is like this:

<div style=...> <ul>

{if $prefs.language eq "cn"}

<li>link1 in Chinese</li>

...

<li>linkN in Chinese</li>

{elseif $prefs.language eq "fr"}

<li>link1 in French</li>

...

<li>linkN in French</li>

{elseif $prefs.language eq "de"}

<li>link1 in German</li>

...

<li>linkN in German</li>

{else}

<li>link1 in English</li>

...

<li>linkN in English</li>

{/if}

</ul> </div>


however, it seems the top navigation bar is always shown in Chinese even when I set the default browser language to English only. At that time, our php-based language detector works correctly to identify the user/browser language as English (example: our homepage at http://www.daav.cn/ ) but tikiwiki remains in Chinese unchanged.

Is there anything wrong with the code or it's just because my Windows XP is in Chinese? Then how to get around this in Tikiwiki? What language do you get on the linked page that I included above?

Thanks for any hints.

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
