Subject [jira] Commented: (INFRA-2251) Language detection
Date Sat, 02 Jan 2010 12:11:55 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-2251?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12795856#action_12795856

Konstantin Kolinko commented on INFRA-2251:
-------------------------------------------

Confirming, that this is a problem for the Tomcat wiki as well.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Configure your Browser to prefer content in a non-english language.
In my case it is Russian ("ru"), which is the default in a localized version of Firefox.
2. Navigate to http://wiki.apache.org/tomcat/
3. You are presented with a localized version of the FrontPage
The problems are:

- This localized page is *empty*
It is an intact template page (having "your project name" placeholder instead of a title).
And the same for a dozen of other languages, where localized FrontPage does exist.

- This localized wiki exists in parallel to the English one, independently from it. 
The search results there do not list English pages, and there is no way to navigate to the
English pages, unless you know the exact name of the page you are interested in. 
Effectively it prevents you from accessing the English pages.

- There is no GUI element to change your current language.
There is no drop-down list of languages or anything like that.
Though you can log in and change your preferences there, but who will be logging in to read
some wiki?

4. Expected result:
To see http://wiki.apache.org/tomcat/FrontPage  and to be able to search and navigate to the
other wiki pages from there.


Solution:
Here is description of this problem and recipes to solve it from the MoinMoin wiki pages:

http://moinmo.in/MultipleLanguagesSupport/Problems

I think that the way to go is to specify
available_languages = ['en'] 

in the configuration file (wikiconfig.py?), as is mentioned near the bottom on that help page.
Though I am not MoinMoin admin, so I do not really know.

> This is from our user list from someone with a French locale. I don't know if it is something
we need to change on the project wiki or if it is at the MoinMoin leve. Thanks
> This new version detect the language configuration of the browser and
> present tabs in consequence... Cool ! we can say... but in fact not because
> now we (non english browser) don't have access to the frontPage (for me =
> "PageD'Accueil")... so the wiki seem to be empty !
> If I want I can do a link from french homepage to english one, but the
> problem will appear for all new other language Lenya's users...
