Get two letter code for default language

Recommended Posts

This is probably really simple but I am unable to get the two letter code for the default language.

$languages->default gives me a numeric code (the page ID for that language).

$user->language give me the numeric code again

$user->languages->name gives me "default" if it is the default language, else the two-letter code for the language.

But I don't see the two letter code for the language in $config (I might be missing it) nor anywhere else.

 

I've hardcoded around this now, so the question is largely academic, but I'd prefer not to hardcode it.

 

Being able to get the two character code, and not 'default' for the default language would be equally helpful.

Hi @bmacnaughton

You can add a custom field to language template and put needed values there. 

Just choose "Show system fields" in the template manager.

The good thing: In PW you have full flexibility handling languages. You can create any name or title. As @Zeka mentioned you can also add any custom fields (2 letter iso codes, numeric iso codes, language descriptions, flag-icons, landscape images, currency etc.)

The bad thing: You have to do some things by yourself.

Keep in mind that the naming of your homepage is also related to language settings. For better handling I recommend consistence (equality) between this and the language name (or any custom language field like 2 letter language code)

      I am wondering, how do you pass a variable into wire('page')->get() inside a function? I have been looking through the forums, but unfortunately I have not found the answer yet.
      My current set up is:
      function generateNewPages($parentPageName) { $p = new Page(); $p->template = "parent"; $p->parent = wire('pages')->get('/home/'); $p->name = $parentPageName; $p->title = $parentPageName; $p->of(false); $p->save(); $p2 = new Page(); $p2->template = "child"; $p2->parent = wire('pages')->get('$parentPageName'); $p2->name = "child"; $p2->title = "Child Page"; $p2->of(false); $p2->save(); } When I try to run it by passing in a title like generateNewPages('Demo');, "Demo" is created, but when it gets to the child page I get:
      Unknown Selector operator: '$' -- was your selector value properly escaped?
      Is there a way to pass the $parentPageName to "wire('pages')->get('$parentPageName')" ?

      I recently started to build Vue SPAs with ProcessWire as the backend, connected with a REST API. Thanks to code and the help of @LostKobrakai (How to use FastRoute with ProcessWire) and @clsource (REST-Helper) I got it up and running pretty quickly and now have put all of it in a site profile for others to use. It includes the REST API with routing for different endpoints, JWT Auth and a simple Vue SPA which shows the process of logging in a user (nevertheless, you don't have to use the Vue part, the API will work on it's own).
      Check it out here: https://github.com/thomasaull/RestApiProfile
      I'm pretty sure, it's not the perfect or most sophisticsted solution, but it gets the job done for me…
      Feedback or Improvements are very welcome
      Update: This site profile is a module now: https://github.com/thomasaull/RestApi

      I have a technical question that maybe you can guide me to a solution/idea.
      I know an online tool that publishes product information and updates prices/inventories regularly from marketplaces such as Amazon, Ebay, etc. to a Wordpress website ... can get the orders information, auto-order it and send back the tracking numbers. All this is done through the Woocommerce API. They don't have an API or CSV option to access this features..
      Is it possible to create fake REST endpoints (a clone of WooCommerce) on my site to accept requests from that external website and process this data my way inside PW? The requests to a REST endpoint are POST like in regular forms submits?
      Sorry I don't have to much technical background about this

      Hi,
       
      I'm trying to upload images from a folder into a page. I need to replace the images instead of adding. The image field already has the replace existing images turned on, but it doesn't seem to be enough.
       
      My code:
      foreach($files as $file) { if(substr($file, 0, 1) != '.' && $file != '.' && $file != '..') { // Get SKU $file_sku = substr($file, 0, 9); // Check for book $book = $pages->get('sku=' . $file_sku); if(!$book->id) { // Book doesn't exist } else { // Upload image into book !!! THIS CODE ADDS FILE INSTEAD OF REPLACING. HOW CAN I REPLACE? $book->book_images->add($upload_directory . '/' . $file); // Delete file unlink($upload_directory . '/' . $file); } // Save book if($book->id) $book->save(); } }  
      What am I missing?

      I have a repeater with a text field where I would like to use hanna code (to make it easier on the user) so the user can define the action of a image that is in the repeater. For example:
      1. The image should have an external link:
      - the user can just type in the url
      2. The image, when clicked, should be printable (using print.js)
      - the user can just type [[print_image]]
      That works just fine, but I am running into an "issue". The code I need to use to print is:
      onclick="printJS({printable: 'path_to_image', type: 'image'});" I can put that into the hanna code as plain text, but I have no idea how to get the image from the repeater item and pass to "path_to_image". Is this even possible?
