[ic] Template Locale & page edit on 4.7
Thu, 26 Apr 2001 00:25:02 -0400 (EDT)
I pressume I should add the locale settings you suggest in the
Currently in my catalog.cfg there is:
# Last Locale specified is the default
Locale en_US LC_CTYPE C
Do i just add it on the end there??
Also, since adding the locale and creating new image directories for each
language is there a way I can set it to just pull from the 1
directory, so I dont have to have multiple instances of the same item
images wasting server space?
