Description

When looking at either the support forum or the download WordPress page from a Dutch computer, I am offered to switch to the German forums and download the German version. Seeing as we speak Dutch in The Netherlands, this is not very productive. Screenshots attached.

en-US,en;q=0.8,nl;q=0.6,de;q=0.4

This string basically says your browser is set to accept languages in the "nl" domain (Netherlands), or in "de" (German).

If you're using Chrome, check what you have in chrome://settings/languages.

Edit: I have been told that Chrome may have a tendency to set these languages for you based on what you've been reading lately, so you may not even know that these are set that way.

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

Based on that string lang-guess is working correctly here, but it's true that the script has some issues. We'll use #810 as a tracking ticket and try to enhance it this year.

  • Resolution changed from worksforme to fixed

There was an issues with one of the queries which had ignored Dutch and some other locales. This was fixed in [dotorg11558].
