Dual Language Forum
« on: May 22, 2009, 02:13:55 PM »
Hello,
I was wondering if its possible to run SMF in two languages: Russian by default and in English if users choose? An example of what I mean would be hxxp:www.russia0.ru [nonactive] Thank you.

/index.php?action=featuresettings
You can set setting: "Enable user-selectable language support"

/index.php?action=serversettings
You can set default language
500fan.dk - SMF 2.0 ~ custom theme
ls-forum.dk - SMF 2.0.2 ~ custom theme and custom iPhone theme

If your forum is set to use English as default, you then also set your guests to use English. When people then log in, they should have their own choice of language, depending of their personal settings.

When you choose English as standard of the forum in your admin panel, guests will see the forum in English.

Are you sure this is not a browser issue? Try updating your browsers cache by pressing F5 (in most browsers) after you logged out.

That I can't help you when you are not having the copyright in your forum. You are then breaking the agreement of using SMF.

You need to have the copyright shown in your forum like we have here in this forum:

Something similar to this depending on your forum version:
Quote
Powered by SMF 2.0 RC1-1 | SMF © 2006–2009, Simple Machines LLC
XHTML | CSS | XML

It is a copyright missing in your forum that either you or someone else edited out. This is illeagal use of the SMF software.

Akyhne - That to me does not appear to be an SMF install. Instead I think it is vBulletin - and only used as an example.

I am not understanding about the copyright matter.

Sorry for the mix up.

How you can help SMF

"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum.
 Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas

www.russia0.ru is not even a SMF forum. Where is the forum that is troubling you?
