Hi all,

I'd successfully integrated JForum into my web apps using SSO. Now I face a couple of issues and hopefully someone can shed some light on these:

- Since the SSO has turned on, when a user has successfully logged in, they will use the user profile page in my Apps instead of the default one (user/edit/
- The request parameter for language change does not work in a session after user logged in (e.g. forums/ This setting is in the individual user profile. However, I'd changed the profile page to my own page, so I'm wondering what is the simplest way to allow user to change language after logged in.

For a logged in user, the I18n class uses the UserSession object stored in the SessionFacade cache. To change languages while a user is logged on, you'll have to do something like:

The language in the UserSession object is set from the information in the jforum_users table.

FWIW, the list function is the only action that takes the lang= parameter and this only sets it for the session if there is a language file that matches the requested abbreviation.

If I remember correctly, this was added so that anonymous users could be supplied with language options from a calling site.
