Solved Changing a link based on a user's language setting

Post by Ayushka December 10th 2023, 2:28 am

Hello!

I'm not sure if this is possible, but is there a way that a link would change from the original URL address to a different one for users who have a different language set in their options?
For example, I'd have a clickable icon in my forum's header that'd redirect you to some English website, but for my German users I'd like that icon to lead to a German website.
I hope I explained it properly and didn't confuse you lol
Forum version: AwesomeBB

Thank you in advance!

Good afternoon!

AP - Modules - Javascript codes management - Create new Javascript

Title: any
Placement: In all the pages
Javascript code:

Code:
jQuery(document).ready(function() {
  const language = navigator.language || navigator.userLanguage;
  const button = document.querySelector('.button__site');
  if (button) {
  button.addEventListener('click', function(e) {
    e.preventDefault();
    if (language === 'de-DE') window.location.href = 'https://www.example.com';
    else window.location.href = 'https://www.anotherexample.com';
  });
  }
});

Save.

Code:
const language = navigator.language || navigator.userLanguage;
- on this line we recognise the language of the user's browser.

Code:
const button = document.querySelector('.button__site');
- on this line we are looking for a button that responds to go to another site. My button has class
Code:
.button__site
. Yours may have a different class.

Code:
if (language === 'de-DE') window.location.href = 'https://www.example.com';
- If the user's browser language is German, the user will go to the https://www.example.com address when clicking on the button. Other users will be directed to the site at https://www.anotherexample.com
