Working with SS 2.3.2.

Client needs to have a distinction between en_US and en_GB content.

Noticing that the default language dropdown in the CMS only contains "English" - with no further distinction.

Is there a way I can override the language entries that appear in this dropdown and affect the languages available for the CMS?

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Thanks to DesignCity on the IRC channel for this...

In the _config.php file, add the following...

global $allowed_locales;
$allowed_locales = array('en_GB' => array('English (UK)','English (UK)'));
i18n::$common_locales = $allowed_locales;

This will replace the default list of alternative languages, so populate the $allowed_locales array with ALL of the languages you need.
