Sometimes your language files are not working and you will only see uppercase workds like this: COM_TICKETMASTER_DATE
This means there is an error somewhere in your language file, it is pretty easy to debug this as Joomla has a built-in language degub system. Follow the next steps to turn it on and find the errors in your language file.
- Go to the main Joomla Configuration.
- Choose for the Tab "System" you will see this:
- Click on teh Save or Save & Close Button
- Navigate to the same page in your frontend.
As you can see in the image below we have created some errors and they are shown in the debug console in the frontend.
In this case we have created errors in line 156 and 264, you fix them and save the language file to check the language again.
