Loading a specific ini file

Postby tanko25 » Sat Dec 22, 2012 6:59 am

If want to use a language file just for your plugin, the language file you create should be named after the plugin. The usual convention for plugins, if I'm right is this:

plg_[group]_[plugin_name].ini (for the .sys.ini file the convention is the same)

Besides, if you want to load another language file, you could do something like this:

Code: Select all

JFactory::getLanguage()->load( 'com_componentname', [ROOT_FOLDER] )

Where [ROOT_FOLDER] is usually JPATH_ROOT or JPATH_ADMINISTRATOR, depending on where you have your language file ( for plugins, the usual place, at least in recent Joomla versions, is in the administrator. Besides, make sure the file you created is fully UTF-8 encoded!

I hope it helps!
