Language filter - browser language not detected

Post by garda » Sat May 31, 2014 8:55 pm

Hi,
I have a website made with Joomla 2.5.20
I have configured two languages, using Joomla native system to create multilanguage website.
The default language is Italian and the other one is English.
The "Language Filter" plugin is enabled and configured in order to automatically recognize the user browser language during his first visit.
The problem is that each time I reopen the homepage using my Italian browser the English version opens.
Why?

Thanks in advance

In the plugin "Language - Filter" for the option "Cookie Lifetime" choose the value to session and see what happens.

Mod. Note: Relocated the topic to the Language J2.5 forum.

Is Preferred Language configured in the browser?
