Description Ruediger Landmann 2010-08-06 15:56:22 EDT
Description of problem:

The JavaScript in the top index.html of a Publican website attempts to match the locale of a visitor's browser and redirect the visitor to a welcome page in their own language. If the locale can't be matched, it defaults to en-US:

	// Else default to en-US
	if(match == 0) {
		lang = 'en-US';

However, for somebody building a site in a language other than English, it would be useful to be able to define this default when the site is created.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Additional info:

For now, you can work around this by manually editing the index.html file to set a different default language. However, you need to re-do this if you ever run update_site, because this file gets overwritten.
Comment 1 Ruediger Landmann 2010-08-06 16:10:46 EDT
en-US also seems to be assumed earlier too: 

	var match = 0;
	var locales = ["en-US"];
Comment 2 Jeff Fearn 2010-08-09 00:09:27 EDT
There was already some support for def_lang with regard to TOC creation.

Made index.tmpl use default language, this did require updating the pot and po files.

Added --lang to create_site parameters, this will set def_lang in the site configuration file. Not 100% sure this is a good approach, maybe create a new parameter, --def_lang, specifically for this action?

Fixed in build: 2.1-0.%{dist}.t32
Comment 3 Jeff Fearn 2010-08-09 00:15:44 EDT
Added --lang parameter to create_site action to allow def_lang to be set at site creation.

Modified index.tmpl to use default language.

Changed debug message from print to debug_msg so it's only displayed in debug mode.

Changed debug message to be more readable and translatable:

"No languages found, using default language: [_1]\n", $self->{def_lang}

Moved static string in HTML to maketext calls to allow for translation of index page in to the default language.

Fixed in build: 2.1-0.%{dist}.t32
