Hi,

I tried to integrate YAF.NET in my web site and stumbled on its localization. Here are the details:

I need a forum on Serbian language - while there is no this language in YAF list, I need to create it. As far as I realized, I need to copy one existing language XML file, change its name and parameters in Resources tag, and that's it - I would have it in the list and I could start manual translation. But, it failed - I got no updates in the list.
The problem lies in this:
<Resources xmlns:xml="http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" language="Serbian" code="sr">

"SR" value is not recognized. I just don't know what to put here to get Serbian language in the list.

I tried to do the same with a few languages that were out of the list: Croatian (HR), Slovenian (SL), Bulgarian (BG), and it was ok - I got these languages.

Any help appreciated.

An addition: if YAF.NET uses Culture codes of CultureInfo class, there is no two letter codes for serbian language (as for the rest of languages). There are only: "sr-SP-Cyrl" and "sr-SP-Latn", or "sr-Latn-CS", without a separate value "sr".
I also tried "sr-SP", "sr-SP-Latn", "sr-Latn" and other variations, but with no luck.

Thats the Problem YAF has a check that only allows lanuages with xx-xx language codes but not xx-xx-xx. I Removed that check in changeset 1a8af763f9c0 then it should work with "sr"

Language codes are stored in db as a 5 char string anyway. it should be changed to varchar(10).
And the changes are complex because they will be in many places.

Thanks for both answers. I really appreciate your efforts.

If I understood correctly, without some bigger changes there is no chance that this language shows in the system.
Could I expect these changes in some next major release of YAF.NET or I should just forget it and release forum with Serbian language under some other language name.
