Subject [jira] Updated: (FOR-579) Language override menu
Date Thu, 30 Mar 2006 02:59:28 GMT
     [ ]

David Crossley updated FOR-579:

    Component: Internationalisation (i18n)
                   (was: Core operations)

> Language override menu
> ----------------------
>          Key: FOR-579
>          URL:
>      Project: Forrest
>         Type: New Feature
>   Components: Internationalisation (i18n)
>     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
> 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:
> index_es.xml
> index_en.xml
> index_no.xml
> index_se.xml
> should give the menu:
> Spanish (es)
> English (en)
> Norwegian (no)
> North Sámi (se)
> whereas the following document list:
> index2_es.xml
> index2_no.xml
> index2_se.xml
> 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)
