Frontend Localisation Redirection

Version 2.0.x

Adds redirection capabilities to Frontend Localisation Extension


  • Symphony CMS version 2.5 and up (as of the day of the last release of this extension)
  • Frontend localisation extension version 2.7.0
  • FLang detection gtlds extension version 2.0.0


  • Install frontend_localisation
  • Install flangdetectiongtlds
  • Unzip the flang_redirection.zip file
  • (re)Name the folder flang_redirection
  • Put into the extension directory
  • Enable/install just like any other extension

Voila !


This extension provides a event that will redirect the user to the localised page. You just have to link the event to all pages you want.


This extension is a rewrite of an existing extension that worked great in Symphony 2.2.x, language_redirect. Since multilingual support is now offered thought a new extension, I wanted to port the existing features of the language redirect in this new environnement.

I wanted to say thanks to @klaftertief for his nice work and @vlad-ghita for unifying the localisation support.
