Language variables disappearing

acheung
Hi. Our web manager reported that the language variables that he added has disappeared. We have reindexed the whole site but the language variables are still gone from admin console (couldn't find them in the <assets folder>/messages/cms_language_en.properties either.

Is there a way to trace the addition/modification/deletion of language variables? We're using version 3.3.1.

Thanks in advance for answering.

 -Andrew

Hi Andrew,

All Language Variables are stored in a file in disk, so possibly something happened to that file (it was misplaced after an upgrade or overwritten by a plugin). There is no history of it and there are no versions.
You could consider using our "Language Variables plugin" which stores language variables as content. Then you won't have this problem in the future.
See https://github.com/isaaceindhoven/isaac-dotcms-languagevariables

Kind regards,

Xander

The upcoming version of dotCMS (4.2.0) includes language variables as content by default - much like Isaac's plugin.  It will make the managing of these variables much easier.
