I have implemented a language filter feature which defaults to English, and settings options to set your primary language or disable the language filter. Because Grav8 is primarily English, it's important for English speaking users to not be overwhelmed with languages they don't understand, so the language filter is enabled by default for all users and guests. For those who speak multiple languages, you can disable the language filter.
The language filter will only affects certain parts of the website, currently only the Latest Posts widget on the homepage. This will be expanded on in the future to cleanly separate languages and improve the reading experience. Setting a primary language will eventually enable site-wide translations.
