I manage to create 2 language storeview. For example 1 is english and 1 is spanish. (for english the code is "english" and for spanish the code is "spanish" I want to make everybody who enter my site go to my spanish language. I already change the sort order the spanish to 0, and english to 1. But whenever I open the site it still go to english not spanish. How to make everyone to go to spanish when first open my website?

First of all you need to check you website structure, from your comments it's like you already have 2 store view in a single website.

So if you want to be Spanish as your default language you need to go to system > configuration > general - locate option the you need to change your "current configuration scope" to "store view" and in click use default false from the combo of location options and search for Spanish - Spain ( you mast have already installed language package of Spanish from Spain to see Spanish).

Well, I hope this can help, let's know if you need feature help.

Best, ALe.

  • Hi Ale,Thanks for your answer. I already do what you advise. But, what I mean is no matter the location is (for example: in USA) the language also spanish. Is that possible?

  • @dsc81 Yes it is. The location option I mention above is for language porpoise not a location for the store location. So if you want Spanish as a default anytime well then "go to scope configuration" set as website scope and change to Spanish (Spain). Let me know if this works.
