When you put Joomla 3.0 in Debug Mode, you have the additional option to turn on Debug Language. Joomla 3.0 gives the following description for the Debug Language setting:

Debug Language
Select whether the debugging indicators (**...**) or (??...??) for the Joomla! Language files will be displayed. Debug Language will work without Debug System being activated, but you will not get the additional detailed references that will help you correct any errors.

How to enable the Debug Language Setting in Joomla 3.0:

  1. Log into your Joomla 3.0 admin Control Panel
  2. Click the Global Configuration link in the left menu
  3. There will be several tabs listed on the top of the page. Click the tab labeled System.
  4. Under the Debug Settings header, find the setting labeled Debug Language. Toggle the value to either Yes / No, and then click Save in the top left of the page.

    debug-language-remember-meWhen Debug Language is enabled, any content that is printed using information used in a language file will be surrounded by **.

    For example, the phrase "Remeber Me" in the Login Form is defined in:


    When compared to the text on the rest of the page, you can tell Remember Me is printed from a setting in a language file because it is surrounded by **, as in:
    **Remember Me**
