2 Languages and two different templates! Is that possible?
« on: December 20, 2005, 05:16:01 pm »

Hi

I have a HTML-Homepage with Coppermine-Gallery included. I have english and german Sites under this Homepage. The index.html file of the first page is in german. At the bottom there is a language switching link who start's index_e.html for the english start page. In every site i have included a Javascript menue (menu.js and menu_e.js) depending on the choosen language.

The button in the german menue for the gallery ist linked to http://...mysite.../cgi-bin/cpg133/index.php?lang=german
The button in the english menue for the gallery ist linked to http://...mysite.../cgi-bin/cpg133/index.php?lang=english

I had modified the template.html and removed the {MAIN_MENU]. Instead i have included the JavaScript-Menu into the template which calls a german menue. Now i have the Problem if a user selects the english language the menue is always german. I think a second template.html and a second index.php (index_e.php which calls the second template) is the right way to a solution.

Am i right or have you any other suggestion ?

Thanxs for a quick reply...

Sam

I found a part of a solution http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?topic=3138.0 in this topic.

My default gallery-language is german. So i think that i need only to handle the special case if language is english. I have copied my original theme "sassa" to a new theme "sassa_e" for the english language. then i have edited the template.html of "sassa_e" theme and included the english java-menuscript. Then i modified init.inc.php line this ...

Before:
=====
Code: [Select]
if (!file_exists("themes/{$CONFIG['theme']}/theme.php")) $CONFIG['theme'] = 'classic';
require "themes/{$CONFIG['theme']}/theme.php";
$THEME_DIR = "themes/{$CONFIG['theme']}/";

After:
====
Code: [Select]
if ($_GET["lang"] == 'english' ) { $theme='sassa_e';
        require "themes/sassa/theme.php";
        $THEME_DIR = "themes/sassa_e/";
} else {
if (!file_exists("themes/{$CONFIG['theme']}/theme.php")) $CONFIG['theme'] = 'classic';
require "themes/{$CONFIG['theme']}/theme.php";
$THEME_DIR = "themes/{$CONFIG['theme']}/";
}

Now it works, but only on the first site... If i click on a Breadcrumb link or a thumbnail-Picture in the english theme, then the theme switch back to de german theme. I think i have to modify thumbnails.php and displayimage.php. But i cannot find out where and how... Have you any suggestion for me please ?

Thanxs a lot

First i think i have the problem solved very easy....  ;D ;D

I have successfully updated to 1.4.2. Then i found a hint to link directly to a theme... An here it is...

The button in the german menue for the gallery ist linked to http://...mysite.../cgi-bin/cpg133/index.php?lang=german&theme=sassa
The button in the english menue for the gallery ist linked to http://...mysite.../cgi-bin/cpg133/index.php?lang=english&theme=sassa_e


(sassa is my german theme, sassa_e is my english theme)

This works fine with the original init.inc.php without modifications...

Thanxs anyway
