I have created a site that is multilingual, and when I login as an administrator I see the the two languages in the 'Language:' select (english and spanish) in the 'Site Content and Structure' left hand side bar.

I have created a user to create and edit the pages for the spanish site. Permissions are...

  • access to 'file & images' (assetadmin)
  • access to 'site content' (cmsmain)
  • access to all cms interfaces
  • control which groups can access or edit certain pages
  • access to 'model' (modeladmin)
  • access to 'comments' (commentadmin)
  • control which groups can access or edit certain pages
  • site

...and when I log in as this user I do not get the select instead it is fixed text stating 'Language: English (United Kingdom)' which is the opposite of what I want... I want him to either have the option or to default to creating, editing the spanish pages). I have tried editing the CMS language and the country of origin, but this just results in the the language of the CMS changing, not the option to edit pages for that locale.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!

To follow this up I have hacked a fix that within...

function LangSelector() comment out the condition that checks for the 'VIEW_LANGS' permission on the user and always show the language select options.

I am still stumped how to assign this permission to the user using in the proper fashion (e.g. using the GUI)
