Hi all,

If you have a multilanguage installation of DNN how are the languages handles if you use a blogging or forum module?

simple answer is that they arent - DNN's content localization solution works on a page/module basis where a new language gets a new page and a copy of the same modules. This means all modules will work, but that there are seperate instances of data stored. A number of modules do implement module-specific localization where a single module can change based on the culture-code, but im not aware of any blog/forum modules which do so

dnnWerk Articles used to provide multilingual content for news, latest version of DNN Blog did take some effort to localize it's content, but I haven't had a chance to check it out (an upgrade of a client's site from DNN 4 unfortunately failed and the client moved over to Wordpress)

Thanks both! For blogging/articles I choose Live Articles from and it does the job perfectly! Mandeeps is probably the only DNN module company that makes modules that are ML aware. The forum is of course two instances.
