Other languages sub-forum fixation suggestion

hi there , as u know this is a good thing to have other languages supports and now we have arabic language as u c. but there is minor problem in it which is when someone new visit the forum website basically the url going to be " www.whonix.org/forum " and if u enter the arabic sub-forum its just consisting of unreadable language , where as if u enter this url " www.whonix.org/forum/?language=arabic " and go to the arabic sub forum im sure u gonna c the difference even if u cant understand whats have been written.

some suggested to do this step:-

“change the decode language in DB to UTF-8”

so can u fix this and check if this is true or not ? thnx

I don’t know if changing the decode language is related here, if that would be sane or could cause any issues.

Anyhow…

https://www.whonix.org/forum/index.php/board,19.0.html

is now redirected to:

https://www.whonix.org/forum/index.php/board,19.0.html?language=arabic

So when users click on the Arabic sub forum, they end up in the Arabic sub forum with Arabic forum language.

Please try.

Added to apache config.

RewriteRule /forum/index.php/board,19.0.html /forum/index.php/board,19.0.html?language=arabic [QSA]
https://www.whonix.org/forum/index.php/board,19.0.html

is now redirected to:

https://www.whonix.org/forum/index.php/board,19.0.html?language=arabic

So when users click on the Arabic sub forum, they end up in the Arabic sub forum with Arabic forum language.

well thats fantastic , its working :)))))))))))

Technical notes…

The footer link for some reason was broken, looked for links to the forum for first time visitors without cookies (Tor Browser users) like this:

https://www.whonix.org/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=6jtmukoptda25go2gn19com3ngu165et&/board,19.0.html

While it should be like this:

https://www.whonix.org/forum/index.php/board,19.0.html?PHPSESSID=6jtmukoptda25go2gn19com3ngu165et&

Therefore appending the query parameter [font=courier]?language=arabic[/font] did not work.

The forum footer mod messes that up?

Workaround in place now.

In footer menu there will now be a “non-forum” link https://www.whonix.org/arabic that redirects to the Arabic sub forum https://www.whonix.org/forum/index.php/board,19.0.html.

RedirectMatch (?i)/arabic https://www.whonix.org/forum/index.php/board,19.0.html
