In progress Forum Language not changing

Post by magicm00n on April 10th 2012, 6:46 am

Hi, I change my default forum language in the admin panel but there is no effect. How long will it take before the changes from English to my preferred language will be applied?

Hi,

In order for it to change you must change it in your Profile > Prefrences > Language also.

Even if you change it in the administration panel, members' profiles language settings will override the administration panel.

What language do you have it in your profile and the administration panel?

For example I want Portuguese, So I set the language in the admin panel to Portuguese. I also change the board language in my profile to Portuguese but nothing happens.

Hello,

Try saving the settings again both in the admin panel and your user preferences, then log out and close your forum, then come back again on your forum, it should be changed on your preferred language then.

What page do you want to be translated? The forum, admin panel or both?

The language that will be changed on your forum are the default messages of the forum only, such as the messages in the statistics area, FAQ page and most of the default messages like:
Your last visit was on Tue 10 Apr 2012 - 9:33
Current date/time is Tue 10 Apr 2012 - 9:43

For the admin panel, it should be changed to the language you set on:
Admin Panel > General > Config > Default language ... after you log out and close the forum then open it again on your browser.

I just tested this on my test forum, this option:
Admin Panel > General > Config > Default language
This will change the language of the forum for the default messages only but for guests only, unless you change the settings on your user preference:
Profile > Preferences > Board language to the same language you set on your admin panel, it will also be applied to your admin panel.

At first I tried this settings on my test forum, but it didn't work, after I tried this method as I stated above:
Save your settings both in the admin panel and your user preferences, then log out and close your forum, then come back again on your forum, it should be changed on your preferred language then.
It worked on my test forum.
