What is the way to make Pawtucket aknowledge the localeid, when printing the metadata attributes? It prints them in English, no matter the locale specified in the field.


  • Hi,

    To change the display locale in Pawtucket all you should need to do is set a "lang" parameter on any URL to the desired locale code. For example: would reload the front page of your site using the Spanish locale. would reload it using US English. Once set the language setting will persist for the length of the session.

    Both application strings and catalogued content will be output in the chosen locale whenever possible. That is, if you set es_ES then translatable text in your theme will be displayed in Spanish whenever possible, falling back to English for text that has no transition. A similar process is used for catalogue data. If a field has a Spanish-marked value, that will be used, with a value in another language used as a fallback if no Spanish value is defined.

    Thanks, that did work fine for the program labels, but not so for the metadata attributes. Those get printed in English. Already checked the language attribute for the metadata, and it seems ok.
