It would be lovely that users (or persons with the wright rights) can add/delete languages fast.

Where can I find the setting in the code for multiple languages?

    Well you can add it by altering the settings, but it isn't that easy.

    First you should create an array with all the languages you want. eg:
    $var = array('nl', 'en', 'fr', 'es', ...) Then you should serialize it:
    echo serialize($var);

    The go to your database and run
    UPDATE modules_settings SET value = "<insert string here>" WHERE name = "languages" AND (module = "core" OR module= "locale");

    This will add the languages, through te backend you can set them as active and posisble redirect-languages.

    When that is done you should copy the pages from one language to all new languages, otherwise the pages-module won't work. This can be done by opening the copy-action. Which can be found on: http:///private/nl/pages/copy?from=&to=

    Tx, easy.

    Is Fork putting a function for this in the core, under "settings"? Or will this always be for developers?

    if you are not a dev. or porgrammer but like to do your own little things like installing your own cms, how can we update tis to our fork with 1 language and after a mont you want to add antoher language? and you made the single installation for 1 language?
