Setting Default Language via Category with jQuery

If you use 2 languages, my clients often forget to set the correct language for the item when creating a new item and they leave it at "ALL"..

So - if I add the following code to my admin template js - it will choose English by Default.

For instance my maincat with category id 10 is "clients" and is in English.
if (window.location.href.indexOf("&maincat=10") > -1) {
$(document).ready(function(){
$("select#jform_language").val("en-GB");
});
}

You can also do it via type.
if (window.location.href.indexOf("&typeid=23") > -1) {
$(document).ready(function(){
$("select#jform_language").val("en-GB");
});
}

You can also set default language for new items in fc-global config in TAB "item form" or alternativ for each content type an other language as default in its config. (then in TAB "Item Form FE")

Thanks - I was more meaning - you can set it for multiple languages - which means you don't need to worry about maintaining multiple content types based on languages. Also - you can add it in FLEXIContent type - Item Form BE tab under JS.

So - you can do this:



/* CHINESE */
if (window.location.href.indexOf("&typeid=23&maincat=61") > -1) {

$(document).ready(function(){
$("select#jform_language").val("zh-TW");
$("select#jform_catid.scat").val("61");
});

}

Hi MIcker,

It would be awesome.

However - I don't think there is a way to pass the language through the URL:

Thanks,

Robert
