+The view expects to be called via the ``POST`` method, with a ``language``
+parameter set in request. If session support is enabled, the view
saves the language choice in the user's session. Otherwise, it saves the
language choice in a ``django_language`` cookie.
After setting the language choice, Django redirects the user, following this
algorithm:
- * Django looks for a ``next`` parameter in the query string.
+ * Django looks for a ``next`` parameter in ``POST`` request.
* If that doesn't exist, or is empty, Django tries the URL in the
``Referer`` header.
* If that's empty -- say, if a user's browser suppresses that header --
then the user will be redirected to ``/`` (the site root) as a fallback.
Here's example HTML template code::
- <form action="/i18n/setlang/" method="get">
+ <form action="/i18n/setlang/" method="post">
<input name="next" type="hidden" value="/next/page/" />
<select name="language">
{% for lang in LANGUAGES %}
