Viewing the site in the secondary language

Initially the flags will be disabled to allow the user to populate the site so to view the page in a second language you can put &L=1 at the end of your url.  

Eg  What the url would look like on the main site  

http://www.test.org/index.php?id=190  

What the url would look like in the second language  

http://www.test.org/index.php?id=190&L=1  

When you are ready to put the second language live SportsTG can add the flag of the language to the site to allow the user to select the content in both languages.
