We have globalized site with two languages set up. When inserting a link through the Editor the language property dropdown is set to English by default. If the editor doesn't change the option to 'Automatically' when creating the link, it means a user browsing the site in the alternative language can be be switched back to the English version when following a link with hte language hardcoded. If they select 'Automatically' everything works fine, but they don't always remember to do this.
Is there any way to set the default option in the Language dropdown to Automatically?
I looked at the HyperLinkProperties.aspx and tried to change the default selected value, but couldn't. So I don't think you can do this. However, in CMS 6 the default value is automatic, so upgrading would solve your little problem ;)
Thanks for showing me where to look.
document.getElementById('<%= linklanguages.ClientID %>').selectedIndex = 0;
I'll leave this on our testing environment for a while and see how it goes.
Great! I knew someone would come along and hack something together. :)
