Subject [jira] Updated: (FOR-936) Forrest "looses" the locale when switching pages
Date Mon, 05 Mar 2007 07:57:51 GMT


Gavin updated FOR-936:

    Other Info:   (was: [Patch available])

Remove 'Patch Available'

Patch was tested and reverted because it never worked. However it may be due to it being reliant
on other issues submitted by Sjur at the time. It needs revisiting when a CLI replacement
is available. Unless that is Sjur wants this working for 0.8 release in which case I'd like
Sjur to look at it again.

>             Project: Forrest
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Core operations, Internationalisation (i18n), Launch 'forrest run'
>    Affects Versions: 0.8-dev
>            Reporter: Sjur N. Moshagen
>             Fix For: 0.9
>         Attachments: sticky-locale-patch.txt
> When moving from one page to another and switching locales in between, the chosen locale
is lost when entering the new page. To reproduce:
> 1) set up and run forrest with i18n ON
> 2) open a localized page
> 3) switch locale by appending '?locale=XY' in the address field
> 4) open another page available in both the original locale (before the switch) and the
new locale XY
> 5) notice how the new page is displayed in the original locale, NOT the expected XY locale
> Although one could argue that the described behaviour is wanted in some cases, I believe
that to most users it would be natural that the locale is "sticky" once changed - it should
not change back by itself. Thus, the "sticky" behaviour should be default in Forrest.
> The fix is simple, patch to come soon.
