localeurls Automatic locale/language management for URLs

  1. Installation
  2. Changelog

This extension allows to use URLs that contain a language code like

/en/some/page
/de/some/page
http://www.example.com/en/some/page
http://www.example.com/de/some/page

Since 1.1.3 you can also configure friendlier language names if you want:

http://www.example.com/english/some/page
http://www.example.com/deutsch/some/page

The language code is automatically inserted into every URL created and read back on every request. No extra URL rules are required. For best user experience the language is also restored from session/cookie if the user returns to a URL without a language code.

Installation

Extract the package to your protected/extensions directory and rename it to localeurls. Then configure the components in your protected/config/main.php:

<?php
return array(
    // ...
    'components' => array(
        // ...
        'urlManager' => array(
            'class'     => 'ext.localeurls.LocaleUrlManager',

            // Advanced configuration with defaults (see below)
            //'languageParam'   => 'language',
        ),
        'request' => array(
            'class'     => 'ext.localeurls.LocaleHttpRequest',
            'languages' => array('en_us','en','de','fr'),

            // Since version 1.1.3 you can also map url => language
            // 'languages' => array(
            //      'english'   => 'en',
            //      'deutsch'   => 'de',
            //      'fr',
            //  )

            // Advanced configuration with defaults (see below)
            //'persistLanguage'         => true,
            //'languageCookieLifetime'  => 31536000,
            //'redirectDefault'         => false,
        ),
        // ...
    ),
);
