Part of #1921152: META: Start providing tour tips for other core modules.

Problem/Motivation

Multilingual configuration is spread throughout the site. It would be useful to have a tour to help users know how to configure the site for multilingual.

Proposed resolution

Write individual tours for each core multilingual module feature. Provide a multipage tour to allow going from one tour to another. See:

#1942576: Tour tips to be able to link to other pages and start tour's automatically.

Remaining tasks

Create tour yml files for the following. Some features can be combined into the same tour.

These should be included in the multipage tour:

These should NOT be included in the tour since the defaults are sane (or maybe there can be advanced tours?):

  • Detection and selection page (admin/config/regional/language/detection)
    • Enable/disable new detection and selection settings
    • Reorder detection and selection settings
    • Configure URL setting (subpage = admin/config/regional/language/detection/url)
    • Configure Session setting (subpage = admin/config/regional/language/detection/session)
    • Configure Browser setting (subpage = admin/config/regional/language/detection/browser)
    • Configure Selected language setting (subpage = admin/config/regional/language/detection/selected)
  • There will be other tours if the Configuration Translation module lands:

    New tours

    Reading the META issue, there are no tour issues for each multilingual module. I think we should treat this as one system. Retitled.

    Also Kristen Pol closed down #2007632: Create multilingual install profile. as a duplicate of this one FYI.

    Agreed... one tour to rule all multilingual!

    This would be a great deal in cutting down on all the pogo-sticking site builders have to go through in order to configure the right settings in order to create a multilingual site. I believe that this issue is related/helpful: #1942576: Tour tips to be able to link to other pages and start tour's automatically.

    I realize that #2007632: Create multilingual install profile. was closed and getting this fixed will be easier/faster, but I would like to take the opportunity to shamelessly "promote" #2010008: Multilingual site installation, Step #1: Allow selecting more than one language during installation. because I'd really hate to see it be pushed to D9.

    I have added a lot of detail into the issue summary to outline what could be in the tours. These can be started even though the multipage tour patch hasn't landed yet. There is still a lot of work to get a tour per page.

    I dont think a tour needs to show *everything*
    For example, the detection and selection page probably does not need a tour, as we are expecting 80% will be fine with the defaults.

    Kristen Pol’s picture

    Agreed. I'll update the issue summary with what will be in the tour and what *won't* be in the tour. :)

    I saw a "Guided Tour" on Drupal 8 beta 6. Is it related?

    This one seems like a good thing to do, but postponed on #1921152-109: META: Start providing tour tips for other core modules. for now.
