Fallback language for certain blocks




We have some blocks types that should have a fallback language - e.g. if block content does not exist in current language, use content from master language (english in this case).

Is this something that is applied by an attribute on the block model?!

Thanks in advance.

Anyone done something like this?

I would suggest that you use the ordinary fallback language settings in EPiServer. These can be found in the Tools dropdown and Language Settings.

This needs to be set on each Block at the moment. Currently you can't set this on a folder with children unless you do a workaround:

browse to /EPiServer/CMS/Edit/LanguageSettings.aspx?moduleArea=LegacyCMS&id=5&IsInLegacyWrapper=true

Replace the id-parameter (in my example 5) with the folder that contains your blocks.

Since it is many blocks, setting this on every one is time consuming for the editor that is an unconvenience for them.

I'll try the workaround, thanks
