I am using Joomla 1.5.14 + fish 2.0.3 with Joomla 1.5 built-in SEF enabled using Apache mod_rewrite - not using suffix
I have GB language that came with the joomla installer I used + ES 1.5.9 front end pack (uploaded)
I use GB for backend. (no other packs installed for backend)
Here´s the story :
1- I installed Joomla 1.5.14 + fish 2.0.3 with Joomla 1.5 built-in SEF enabled using Apache mod_rewrite - not using suffix
2- installed ES 1.5.9 front end package and set it to front end default language
3- tested site navigation and It was working perfectly - joomfish was using my default language.
4- at some point it stop working (I am still wondering why
) fish was using GB as default despite my joomla settings
* I have tried to solved this issue, but after hours of frustration I finally gave up and decided to reinstall the whole thing
5- I reapeated steps 1,2,3 and it was working again
6- I installed JoomlaPack 2.3.3 Plus in order to backup my working fish. Run backup succesfully.
7- I run JoomlaPack restore in order to test it and guess what ? Now joomfish is GB default again - WTF
In the joomla extension site http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/460/details

Did you just installed a new language pack of en-US and set this to default in your site? The default language is clearly not fixed in Joom!Fish.
Joom!Fish is serving well for huge websites with a couple of languages, if they would have these kind of problems we would not be where we are. Looking forward talking to you and improving the tutorials.
Well It makes sense, but does anyone know why would joomfish ignore my joomla language settings ?
I do not have enough time to explore the whole code looking for a way to hardcode joomfish with ES as default .
If you could point me to variable or variables I need to change as workaround I would appreciate it !
