Description

In the Language Manager you can configure the available languages installed. You can set a default language displayed to new users, though Joomla! allows registered users to select a preferred language in the front-end.

Version Changes

In Joomla! 1.0.x the Language Manager was accessible from Site -> Language Manager -> Site Languages menu item. As only the front-end was localized in Joomla! 1.0.x, only the site languages were listed. The published language was selected in the Language drop down list of the Locale tab in the Global Configuration screen.

In Joomla! 1.5 a language is a type of extensions, so the Language Manager was moved to the Extensions menu.

Typical Usage

Typical Usage Placeholder

This is the most important new section in these Help Screens. This is the meat on the bones of the Help Screen. This should represent the typical basic usage of the screens' functionality in normal use. Write it as a guide not just as a sequence of instructions - except when this is required. Include links to other screens that are needed to complete the function effectively. Use paragraph format type and do not add extra white space. Ensure that you use the correct styles for inline emphasis and notices.

Quick Tips

Quick Tips Placeholder

Using the analogy of the previous section this is the sauce and condiments that go with the meat! Provide any one liners that may not normally be obvious. These may already be known to you or you may spot something within the forums or other publications. Just ensure they work and that the wording is consistent with the rest of the document and not a straight copy of the content from other sources. Use paragraph format type and do not add extra white space. Ensure that you use the correct styles for inline emphasis and notices.

Points to Watch

Points to Watch Placeholder

Highlight known issues or easy traps that can be fallen into when using this function. Include references to known solutions rather than repeating the solutions here, unless considered essential. Even if there are none immediately apparent leave this section in the Help Screen - this message for future reference. Just replace this message with None Known at this Time. Use paragraph format type and do not add extra white space. Ensure that you use the correct styles for inline emphasis and notices.

Dependencies

Dependencies Placeholder

Describe other screens that rely on the presence of this function or that this function relies upon, in order to work correctly for example: a Category depends upon the presence of a Section (up) and it must be in place before a Categorised Article (down) can be created. If there are no Dependencies either up or down for the particular screen just state None but do include the section. Use paragraph format type and do not add extra white space. Ensure that you use the correct styles for inline emphasis and notices. It will probably be sufficient to just list these and provide links to the Help Screens relating to the dependency.
