New language files

To create a new language file in your CMSimple installation, copy one of the the language files in the /cmsimple/languages folder and give it a 2-letter name defined by ISO 639-1 Language Codes.

After this is done, change the default language under 'Settings -> Edit Configuration', when logged in.

Then you are able to translate the language file under 'Settings -> Edit language'.

Also, place a flag icon in /images/flags/ using the same 2-letter name.

Editor Buttons

If you want to change the editor buttons - place the gifs in a folder images/editor - if this folder does not exist or is empty, CMSimple will use the gifs from image.php. (8 KB) Updated March 12. 2007
