Languages and Locale
The Language & Locale settings allow you to specify the native language for your glFusion site and to customize date / time settings to your specific locale.
- Name of your language file. Additional language files may be available for download at http://www.glfusion.org. If you translate a language file, please send it to us. Also see Localization below.
- Locale for the system. This defines both the language and the country that PHP will use when deciding how to display localized information such as dates (i.e. for the names of months).
- Date Format
- Date format used for most of the site, including story displays. See Date/Time formats below.
- Daytime Format
- Date format used when a shorter date is needed. See Date/Time formats below.
- Date format used when the shortest date is needed. See Date/Time formats below.
- Date Only Format
- Short date format (day and month only), (i.e. in the Upcoming Events and Older Stories blocks). See Date/Time formats below.
- Time Only Format
- Format string for the time only, (i.e. on the Event Details page). See Date/Time formats below.
- Week Start
- First day of the week in the calendar. Can be either 'Sun' (Sunday) or 'Mon' (Monday).
- Hour Mode
- Which format to use when submitting or editing an object with a time setting (i.e. the publish time of a story). Can be 12 (for the 12 hour am/pm format) or 24 (for the 24 hour format).
- Thousands Separator
- Character to use between every group of thousands.
- Decimal Separator
- Character to use before decimals.
- Decimal Count
- How many decimal places to display.
- If your server is located in a different timezone, use this option to set your local (i.e. your own) timezone, so that the time and date on the site match your own. This option is known as the “timezone hack” and may not work on some servers.
Multiple Language Support
- For multi-lingual setups only: A list mapping language shortcuts ('en', 'de', etc.) to the glFusion language files to use.
- For multi-lingual setups only: A list mapping language shortcuts ('en', 'de', etc.) to the language's native name (“English”, “Deutsch”, etc.). See language for more information.
