Subject [jira] Created: (FOR-580) Default language in forrest.properties
Date Wed, 20 Jul 2005 07:18:48 GMT
Default language in forrest.properties
--------------------------------------

         Key: FOR-580
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOR-580
     Project: Forrest
        Type: New Feature
  Components: Core operations  
    Versions: 0.8-dev    
    Reporter: Sjur N. Moshagen


When developing a multilingual site, it would be beneficial if the default/fallback language
could be configured from forrest.properties. This would imply that, given 'no' as fallback,
one of the following two scenarios would be true:

1)
files: index.xml, index_es.xml, index_en.xml

Requests for both index.html and index_no.html would generate the returned page from index.xml

2)
files: index_no.xml, index_es.xml, index_en.xml

Requests for both index.html and index_no.html would generate the returned page from index_no.xml

In both cases the end result would be that there would be no need to maintain more than one
file for the fallback language.

I would prefer the second alternative just for the sake of symmetry and equality of languages.
It has the additional benefit of making it very easy to change the default/fallback language
- just change the forrest.properties setting. The second alternative would also make it easier
to create a language override menu, as all the available languages/locales would be encoded
explicitly in the file name.
