Using custom cultures

All Replies

I have been trying to experiment with custom regions in order to provide content customized by city within the same country.  I have been using the method described in the following article to create custom cultures.   I can create and use one custom culture fine, but if I create a second custom culture, but after I add the second culture/region to Sitefinity, I get the following error when returning to the pages list.  I have tried ensuring that everything is unique (ThreeLEtterISORegionName, TwoLetterISOLanguageName, Native Name, Windows Name, etc.) but that doesn't seem to be the issue.

Or, perhaps the custom culture is a dead and and there is a better way to be approaching this problem?

Hello Compton,

  I don't think creating custom cultures for each city would be a good approach. What I can suggest here is using our built-in Taxonomy module and creating Categories (for example) for each city. Then you will be able to load different pages for the different categories. This way you will both - save yourself implementation time and achieve a better working solution in the end.

All the best,
