so its a bit of work, but possible - and it looks like “we should probably do this in core” was as close to getting it in core as it got

i do have memories of discussions around rtl, but i can’t remember to what extent things were configured

Yeah, Arabic support is one of the features that made me aware of Silverstripe, but if all it does is change the prompts, that's not helpful.

That I’m not sure about, unfortunately

Thanks, Joe. What about right-to-left text? I played around with the Silverstripe demo in Arabic, but the content is still left-aligned.

"content left aligned" ? you mean in the wysiwig editor or lthe overal CMS / Backend Layout

Is it possible to create a site containing content in multiple languages and allow the users to select which language in which they want to view it? And how do I get the WYSIWYG editor to show right-to-left text, such as Arabic?

It sounds like a module I can't remember, that did that without he need for sub-folders

andante

that sounds like a job for alternate_base_url
