Description

When typing the LibreOffice URL (www.libreoffice.org or libreoffice.org) in a web-browser, it currently always goes to the English language edition (https://www.libreoffice.org/). It should go to the language locale edition of LibreOffice.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set the locale to hu (Hungarian)
2. Type libreoffice.org into the address bar of a web-browser

Actual Results:
3. The LibreOffice English version opens, i.e. https://www.libreoffice.org/

Expected Results:
3. The LibreOffice Hungarian version opens, i.e. https://hu.libreoffice.org/
or perhaps the website needs a paradigm shift and the webpage that opens is:
https://wwww.libreoffice.org/hu
or
https://www.libreoffice.org/?lang=hu
or
https://www.libreoffice.org/?hl=hu

This has been implemented with:

What do you think?

There IIRC is a ticket somewhere about showing a banner on the websites
when the page opened differs from the browser locale. I can't find the
ticket ID at the moment, but I think that Jean Spiteri was working on it
- maybe some other approach we can consider too?

The issue being mentioned here is #2032. I'll assign it to myself. I won't touch it for the other settings (whether it is a duplicate or the priority is right).

Does PHP User Agent Language Detection https://techpatterns.com/downloads/php_language_detection.php help?

The current patch has been reuploaded to the test site. You can see it from https://newdesign.libreoffice.org/events-map/. Does this fit the request?

Please note that the language detection is not working because of the way the site is built. The problem will fix itself once uploaded to the official site.

Florian Effenberger This seems to have been added to the official website. Can this be set as fixed? Also is it possible to have confirmation that the version uploaded to the newdesign website was moved over to the official website as well?

In Firefox:

1. typing jami.net redirects to https://jami.net/ and is shown in Hungarian

2. typing thunderbird.net redirects to https://www.thunderbird.net/hu/
and is shown in Hungarian

2. typing libreoffice.org redirects to https://www.libreoffice.org/ and
is shown in English incorrect

Hence, does not seem to be fixed.

Not sure how to change the status of this issue.

Thank you

No, it still doesn't work.

Not sure what the latest state of discussion is
The pointer to other locales is in (see my comment in #2032)
Not sure if an automatic redirection is exactly what we want though, I
think a hint to the users that there's a localized version available is
much better than a forced redirect?
