Please, give me advice on placing language switcher (two or three flags) in Nebula template.

Thank you!

Hi

Can I just check do you mean suggesting a position or advice on the multilanguage ability of joomla?

Cheers

I think he means module position for language switcher module. I have the same issue. There is really no good place to put it anywhere. The best I came up so far is to put it in the "menu" position below the menu module.

I have tried this now.
It works, but it doesn't fit with the rest of the design and it takes to much vertical space for just two little icons, especially on mobile devices.

You can see it here:

Check it on small resolution screen also

The webpage itself is still work in progress :)

You have empty grid positions in top row which trigger a min height

- try turning them off in the layout tab by either publishing one top position only or hiding the last three

Thanks! That helped with the vertical spacing, but there is still problem of design. How could I customize background color of the top?

OT Is it possible to make two footer positions? I would like to have menu and social icons next to each other, not one below the other.

For the background

#topwrap {background: #ccc;} using your colour value instead :)

or positioning it (thanks rob)

ignore above and try

.mod-languages {
position: absolute;
top: 5px;
}
#topwrap {
height:0px
}

I have tried the second solution and it does help to fit in the language switcher nicely into the design, but the problem is that the flags are not clickable now.

Also, flags they don't appear at all on the home page: jarusica.lin33.host25.com/index.php
Module is set up to be visible on all pages, so that is OK

ah

i think the first option is probably the best in that case

The padding from the logo area is extending over the top of the icons

- remove top padding from the navwrap area works and add it to the bottom padding makes them clickable but back ti square one with the background

so I'd go with option 1

#topwrap {background: #ccc;}
