OPEN includes/sessions.php

FIND:

Code: Select all

          // We include common language file here to not load it every time a custom language file is included
BEFORE, ADD:

Code: Select all

          $lang = request_var('lang', '', false, true);
        if (file_exists($phpbb_root_path . 'language/' . $lang . "/common.$phpEx"))
        {
            $this->lang_name = $lang;
            $this->lang_path = $phpbb_root_path . 'language/' . $this->lang_name . '/';

            $cookie_expire = $this->time_now + (($config['max_autologin_time']) ? 86400 * (int) $config['max_autologin_time'] : 31536000);
            $this->set_cookie('lang', $lang, $cookie_expire);
            unset($cookie_expire);
        }
