Available Locales Plugin

Repo: Majal / discourse-available-locales · GitLab

This plugin allows you to limit the locales shown in the Interface language dropdown in the User settings.


Admin settings

  • available interface locales: List of locales that will be available for users to select.


  • This plugin will be enabled once you enable the allow user locale setting.


  • By default, all languages available in Discourse today (2018-04-27) are enabled.

Just tried this (2018-4-29) Work for me!

Thanks for building this!
(I am just trying different plugin to get familiar with Discourse plugin ecosystem.)

@angus developed a plugin that includes this functionality. You should give it a look instead of installing this plugin Multilingual Plugin 🌐

The difference here is that the feature is displayed within the user settings. I like that.

The multilingual plugin also lets you restrict the available locales in the user interface languages setting.

Will this work after this setting up: (so no locale for china anonymous users for example?)

I don’t think so, that feature wasn’t available when I developed this, maybe @angus plugin has support for this.
