      Description

      I have created a new language pack for my site and forced it to be the site language. If I try to create a new account on the site (and am not already logged in), signup.php is displayed with the content from my new language pack included.

      However, when I was already logged in, I accidentally tried to log in again (as the user I was already logged in as), because I thought I wasn't logged in. At this point, Moodle just took me to signup.php again. Also, it didn't show signup.php with the content from my language pack, but rather from the en standard pack.

      It might be better if Moodle just told me that I was already logged in.

      The language pack issue was just baffling.

        I just noticed also that the language pack problem is also occurring on login/index.php when I am already logged in as well.

        What language do you have selected in that user's profile?

        I just was playing around with that and discovered that en is the user's language. When I changed it to my new language pack the problem disappeared.

        However, this still leads me to a feature request, or perhaps I am missing something that already exists. Is there a way to force the initial language chosen for a user to be something other than English?

        And also, perhaps a feature that allows the admin to prevent the student from changing their language altogether would be nice. In my case I have different language packs with names like en_gd (for my site) and en_oe (for a certain course) and displaying these to students will simply confuse them.

        OK, never mind the part about forcing the initial language. I was seeing English for accounts I created before I created the new language pack.

        However, the feature request for hiding this option altogether still stands. In the meantime I will just hack it.

        Sorry, which option do you want to hide?

        From non non (nbhansen at midway.uchicago.edu) Monday, 23 May 2005, 10:29 AM:

        I want the option to be able to hide the option that allows students to change their language.

        In the admin configure variables page you can choose which languages you want to show, and also hide the language menu entirely.
