Subject [jira] Created: (FOR-579) Language override menu
Date Wed, 20 Jul 2005 06:45:48 GMT
Language override menu

         Key: FOR-579
     Project: Forrest
        Type: New Feature
  Components: Core operations  
    Versions: 0.8-dev    
    Reporter: Sjur N. Moshagen

The present i18n features of Forrest is a good start, but to be really useful there has to
be a way to present the available language variants of a page/site to readers to choose from.

To be as flexible as possible, this menu should be generated pr document, and should reflect
the available language variants of that document (this as opposed to a fixed set of available
languages for the whole site). That is, given the following documents, the corresponding language
override menus should be generated:


should give the menu:

Spanish (es)
English (en)
Norwegian (no)
North Sámi (se)

whereas the following document list:


should give the menu:

Spanish (es)
Norwegian (no)
North Sámi (se)

In the best case the language of the displayed document should be highlighted and unavailable
for selection.

The location and display of this menu should be configurable from skinconf.xml. I would sugggest
the following defaults:

Location: same bar as the document track, but on the right end of that bar
Display: as a list of language links (that is, the default should not be a popup menu, although
that could of course be a skin/skinconf alternative)
