    Default Make Admin language dropdown visible on all Admin pages?

    My store is in English and French. I'd like to have the language selection dropdown box on the admin page stay visible no matter what admin page I'm on. Currently, it hides the dropdown when I view an order, which is a pain when trying to toggle back and forth between French and English orders. (I have SuperOrders 3.0 installed, if that makes a difference.)

    Is there a way to make the language dropdown remain visible on all admin pages?

    You would need to edit the /admin/includes/header.php file to not only change the limits on which pages it displays for, but also to include all page parameters when the language is changed, else when you choose the other language you'll lose which order you're looking at, etc.

    Default Re: Make Admin language dropdown visible on all Admin pages?

    I removed the test years ago and I don't think I have needed to do anything else regarding passing parameters.
    I think it should be on all admin pages: for checking translations, and on re-entry back into whatever page in admin after a timeout.
    //steve removed IF to always show language dropdown
    // if ((basename($PHP_SELF) != FILENAME_DEFINE_LANGUAGE . '.php') and (basename($PHP_SELF) != FILENAME_PRODUCTS_OPTIONS_NAME . '.php') and empty($action)) {
    $languages_array = array();
    $languages = zen_get_languages();
    if (sizeof($languages) > 1) {
    //$languages_selected = $_GET['language'];
    $languages_selected = $_SESSION['language'];
    $missing_languages = '';
    $count = 0;
    for ($i = 0, $n = sizeof($languages); $i < $n; $i++) {
    $test_directory = DIR_WS_LANGUAGES . $languages[$i]['directory'];
    $test_file = DIR_WS_LANGUAGES . $languages[$i]['directory'] . '.php';
    if (file_exists($test_file) and file_exists($test_directory)) {
    $languages_array[] = array('id' => $languages[$i]['code'],
    'text' => $languages[$i]['name']);
    if ($languages[$i]['directory'] == $_SESSION['language']) {
    $languages_selected = $languages[$i]['code'];
    } else {
    $missing_languages .= ' ' . ucfirst($languages[$i]['directory']) . ' ' . $languages[$i]['name'];

    // if languages in table do not match valid languages show error message
    if ($count != sizeof($languages)) {
    $messageStack->add('MISSING LANGUAGE FILES OR DIRECTORIES ...' . $missing_languages, 'caution');
    $hide_languages = false;
    } else {
    $hide_languages = true;
    } // more than one language
    /* steve removed IF} else {
    $hide_languages = true;
    } // hide when other language dropdown is used
    eof */
