Quick Tips

    • Changing a User's Language or the Default Language does not affect the web site's Articles and other content.
    • Important: Do not delete the default language files (for example, with FTP). This will create errors on both the Front-end and Back-end.
    • Important: In KM FasTrans PRO you will see a language with title 'All-All' that is inserted by the installation script. You will not be able to delete or edit this language except for Permissions Management if you are authorised. This is needed for the PRO version in order to support the content language permissions feature.
