Blank WPLANG in multisite options won't fall back to WPLANG in wp-config.php

If the WPLANG option in a multisite install is a blank string (""), then the get_locale() function falls back to en_US. It seems like Wordpress should fall back to the language defined by WPLANG in the wp-config.php.

Line 41 should be a "negotiated checking":


if ( $ms_locale === false )

Your patch:

if ( $ms_locale )

Fixed patch:

if ( !$ms_locale )

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 3.3

Makes sense to me. There were already some tweaks here so I'm going ahead with this.

Wait, no. English is indicated as '' across the board. Including when selecting a language in the dropdown, or for the WPLANG constant.
