An attempt to produce a Gramps multilingual Web Site

This multilingual (French, Polish and English) Chailloux - Żelaska Family Web Site uses the regular "Narrative Web" reporting tool provided by Gramps 3.3.1 with some very small extensions. It allows each page to switch from a language to another using a simple javascript function. I tried to make the minimum changes in the Gramps source in order to facilitate the future updates. The flags are located at the end of the navigation bar.

The 2 changes in ''

Change 1: add the changelang function #<JER> add, after 'head += links' instruction, the changelang function head += "\n <script>function changelang(lang) { var nang = '/' + lang + '/'; var ourl = window.location.href; var nurl = ourl.replace ('/fr/', nang); nurl = nurl.replace ('/pl/', nang); window.location.href = nurl.replace ('/en/', nang); } </script> \n" #</JER> Change 2: add the 3 flags #<JER> the 3 flags, close to the end of 'def display_nav_links' ul += '<li>     </li>' fr_url ="graphics/nav32x16_fr.png", None, self.up) ul += '<li><a href="javascript:changelang(\'fr\')" title="page en français">' + '<img alt="drapeau français" title="drapeau français" src="' + fr_url + '" width="32" height="16" /></a></li>' pl_url ="graphics/nav32x16_pl.png", None, self.up) ul += '<li><a href="javascript:changelang(\'pl\')" title="Wersja Polska">' + '<img alt="Polska Flaga" title="Polska Flaga" src="' + pl_url + '" width="32" height="16" /></a></li>' en_url ="graphics/nav32x16_en.png", None, self.up) ul += '<li><a href="javascript:changelang(\'en\')" title="Page in English">' + '<img alt="English Flag" title="English Flag" src="' + en_url + '" width="32" height="16" /></a></li>' #</JER> just before the last navigation += ul
