TYPO3 v7 has reached its end-of-life November 30th, 2018 and is not maintained by the community anymore. Looking for a stable version? Use the version switch on the top left.

There is no further ELTS support. It is recommended that you upgrade your project and use a supported version of TYPO3.

The "default" language flag

As mentioned already, the default language is whatever you decide it to be. In order to help editors, you can define a label and a flag for the default language, using TSconfig placed on the root page of your web site:

mod.SHARED {
      defaultLanguageFlag = gb
      defaultLanguageLabel = English

This setting is used in particular by the WEB > Page and the WEB > List modules.
