Content filtering by language in OVIDENTIA V4

Before version 4already had a multilingual user interface, in which the language of the interface was defined by the site for not unregistered users and by the user himself for registered users.

And you can create content for yoursite in any language you like. And whatever the language in which your content is written, it will be available for each user that has the necessary access rights to see a given piece of content. And if you put some content in three different languages on anportal (or different portal sites sharing the same database), a visitor will see the content in the three languages.
The only solution available to separate content was a multi-site installation without shared databases.

From OVIDENTIA V4 on we add a new function: content filtering by language.

InV4 we introduce the notion of filtering content by language.

At site level the portal administrator can now define a language filter that will be applied for all unregistered visitors of a site. This filter can have the following values:

  • No filter: no filter will be applied on the content, behavior will be the same as for preceeding versions of
  • Filter language: content will be filtered on language.will only present content that has no language code, a language code that equals * (meaning: present this content in every language) or content for which the language part of the language codes of the content and the user interface match. In example, codes en, en-us and en-en all match. But nl-be and fr-be don't match.
  • Filter language and country: content wil be filtered on language and country. The full language and country code must match now for content to be displayed. Content without a language code or with a language code equal to * will be displayed also.

Registered users can set their own language filter through the "Options" link in the "User's section".

The content on which a language filter can be applied must have a language code. You can now give a language code to the following items:

  • articles
  • topics
  • sections
  • FAQ
