installation/language problem

Post by kaj7 » Wed Jan 31, 2018 8:44 pm

I installed a siteshaper template from Shape5, which included a fresh Joomla install and I cannot get beyond the installation page. Once I input the information needed for the front page, the language ends up defaulting to the United Kingdom. If you can explain a fix, in very simple terms, I would appreciate the help.
Thanks - KAJ7

Welcome to the Joomla! Forum!!

Is your site working?

If you want to have a language other than en-GB (English-United Kingdom), you have to install the appropriate language pack and make that language as the Default language.

To install a language pack, go to the screen "Extensions: Install Languages" (Extensions => Manager -> Install Languages), click on the button "Install" of the appropriate language.

To make a language as the default site language, go to the screen "Languages: Installed (Site)" (Extensions => Language(s) -> Installed), choose the appropriate language and click on the button "Default". Be known that the default language is identified by a Golden Yellow Star. Similarly, the default Administrator language could be changed.
