5 Usage

5.1 @ Site builders

Attach FL: Languages datasource to your pages.

On Preferences page you can:

  • Site languages: choose site languages
  • Main language: choose the main language of the site

Important! When you change the language, re-install the detection driver FLang detection gTLDs.

5.2 @ PHP developers

This extension provides a static FLang class for easy access to Frontend language information.
If you want to create a third-party FLang detection driver, make sure that your driver adds the fl-language & fl-region params to the URL query string with appropriate values. You can also set a main region value, but you need to edit the config.php file manually. Doing so will force you to use a driver that specify a region.
