The language switcher module allows you to take advantage of the language tags that are available when content, modules and menu links are created.
This module displays a list of available Content Languages for switching between them.
When switching languages, it redirects to the Home page defined for the chosen language. Thereafter, the navigation will be the one defined for that language.
The language filter plugin must be enabled for this module to work properly.
To view an example of the language switch moduler module, go to the site administrator and enable the language filter plugin and the language switcher module labellled "language switcher" and visit the fruit shop or park sample sites. Then follow the instructions in this tutorial.
Content modules display article and other information from the content component.
User modules interact with the user system, allowing users to login, showing who is logged in, and showing the most recently registered users.
These modules display information from components other than content and user. These include weblinks, news feeds and the media manager.
Utility modules provide useful functionality such as search, syndication, and statistics.
Navigation modules help your visitors move through your site and find what they need.
Menus provide your site with structure and help your visitors navigate your site. Ã‚Â Although they are all based on the same menu module, the variety of ways menus are used in the sample data show how flexible this module is.
A menu can range from extremely simple (for example the top menu or the menu for the Australian Parks sample site) to extremely complex (for example the About Joomla! menu with its many levels). They can also be used for other types of presentation such as the site map linked from the "This Site" menu.
Breadcrumbs provide users with information about where they are in a site.
