Hi all

In the SS files I want to change the content of the SS file dependent on the language, so for German I want to show "de"... and I know $Level(2).URLSegment also outputs de from the URL. But when put into an IF it is not working...

<% if $Level(2).URLSegment = de %>
<% else %>
<% end_if %>

Hope some one can help.

Thank you.

Hi, you can maybe try something like :

<% control Level(2) %>
<% if URLSegment = de %>
<% else %>
<% end_if %>
<% end_control %>

But I think that to change the content depending on the language, there's something simpler :

<% if Locale = de_DE %>
<% end_if %>

This code is wrong,

<% if $Level(2).URLSegment = de %>

you have to drop the $ there, when you are using variables in IF blocks drop the '$'

also I agree with @stallain here, $Level(2) is a ComponentSet so you have to iterate through that.
