Quick Tips

  • Users can use any Language from the list of installed Languages, either by having it assigned in the Users list or by filling out a Menu Item list - New/Edit - User Form Layout at the Frontend. This will cause the Joomla! system prompts to be generated in this Language just for this User. For example, if a User chooses Spanish as their language, then the Search Module will show with prompts in Spanish.
  • This User's choice is not affected by the Default Language set for the Frontend.
  • Changing a User's Language or the Default Language does not affect the website's Articles and other content.
  • Important: Do not delete the default language files (for example, with FTP). This will create errors on both the Frontend and Backend.
  • If desired, you can show the Frontend site in one Language and show the Backend administration pages in a different Language. Also, individual articles can be configured to use a different language in the Advanced Parameter pane when editing the Article.
