Add-On Type(s)



Language Control is a companion extension to the Publisher module. Multi-lingual or multi-regional websites often have different groups of content editors responsible for managing their own content. All settings are site specific, so it works great with the ExpressionEngine MSM module.


The Publisher add-on is required to use this extension.

This extension provides 3 distinct features:

  1. You can easily set which language is your default for each MSM site so new site visitors get the correct default language.
  2. You can choose which languages appear in the language menu on the publish page for each site (this applies to all member groups).
  3. Finally, you can get even more detailed and override the 2nd setting and decide which member groups can edit each language.

This extension only modifies the language menu in the control panel. The {exp:publisher:languages} tag is unaffected by this extension.

Hooks Used

If the add-on is an extension, and ties into ExpressionEngine's core files, it will use ExpressionEngine hooks. We are listing any hooks the add-on uses for developers to have an easier time locating other add-ons that they can reference for their own work.
