Language dependent start page

    what is the best way to have langage specific start pages dependent on the browser settings of the user?

    The way I found out was to specify a "DefaultPage" as my start page that only contains a "Redirector" Module. This module checks the browser's language settings and redirects to "Startseite" if the browser language is "de-DE", else to "Home".

    Because in the mean time I get problems on this way I am looking for a better solution:

    1.) How can I obtain the real URL the user enters before DNN maps it to the start page?
    2.) or is there a DNN-specific way that does what I want?

      Bernd, if you have Content Localization enabled on DNN, you can customize the home page independently for each language.
      You could add/remove modules for each language, so actually creating specific landing pages for each different language.

        Will DNN take browser settings into account?

          Yes, in the language options you have a checkbox to detect browser language. I am on mobile so can't check exactly where right now. But poke around the language settings and post back if you do not find it...
