Description Alain Portal 2007-07-13 07:28:29 EDT
It could be a nice idea to add a language selector (flags?) to choose the 
language in which we want to browse the FLP website
Comment 1 Dimitris Glezos 2007-07-13 09:27:25 EDT
+1. Although presenting the languages is easy, we'd need to code the
functionality that actually changes the website language. Not sure how we can do
it though. I suspect through a cookie, which the website currently doesn't
support (I think).
Comment 2 Alain Portal 2007-07-13 10:25:35 EDT
I don't know what is used to build the website, but with php, you can use 
session id. I didn't know php before making this website: 
If there is some interest for you, you can checkout the svn repository for the

The website is written in Python, so we need to it that way.

This could be a nice small project for anyone wanting to install our website
locally at his workstation and try to fix this. I can help out.

Sorry, I can't help you for that ;-)

Dimitri, would you agree to do the greek translation for pikloops ? ;-)
30 strings in the program, 85 in the web site

Alain, can you please test the language selection feature at:

Diego, do you think we should deploy without waiting for upstream? If yes, we'll
have to merge in the differences when we decide to update our instance.
Comment 6 Alain Portal 2007-09-04 02:37:30 EDT
It seems to work fine.
Comment 7 Diego Búrigo Zacarão 2007-09-04 08:17:06 EDT
Unfortunate, it's not working properly at all. :/
The selection button doesn't show the correct lang selected when the user is on
team pages.
I.e.: http://publictest5.fedora.redhat.com/teams/hy

I'm looking for the problem and I hope to fix it soon.

Dimitris, I haven't talked with Danilo yet. I think we could know his opinion
and then merge the code in our instance, if he doesn't intent to implement the
feature in DL.

Feel free to take a look in the code to fix the problem, if you want.
Comment 8 Diego Búrigo Zacarão 2007-09-17 14:33:19 EDT

All seems to work fine and I have filed a bug 7 days ago instead Damned Lies (DL):

Dimitris, do we wait and see how long time it needs to be done?
Comment 9 Dimitris Glezos 2007-09-17 16:27:01 EDT
I suggest to eat our own dogfood and commit it and mark it as LIVE on our tree.
Comment 10 Diego Búrigo Zacarão 2007-09-17 17:18:40 EDT
Ok, committed in our instance and it should be LIVE in some hours.

Thank you.
