WP Native Dashboard
[resolved] Disabled Flags (2 posts)

    "Native Dashboard" is a great plugin! But does anyone know if there is a way to disable flags? Using flags to represent languages i think is wrong. A flag is a symbol of a country not of a language.
    I'm getting into problems with a site in catalan when both catalan and spanish are represented with the spanish.

    Thanks

    Languages at WordPress are not only releated to the speaking itself, they are related to the countries as well. So you have as example at spain small differences between countries. Thatswhy spainish is defined per country as examples:

    es_AR -> Español/Argentina
    es_BO -> Español/Bolivia
    es_CL -> Español/Chile
    ....
    es_ES -> Español/España
    ....

    and catalan at spain is described as

    ca_ES -> Сatalà/Espanya

    So flags are usefull to separate it to be sure to have the correct modification per country. If you are using only short appreviations for languages (as some multi language plugins prefere but doing wrong), then you will get the wrong results. But this is the nature of your shortening and is not a problem of correct language/country handling.
