Enabling Malayalam fonts in Content Station 9

Enabling Malayalam fonts in Content Station 9

Info: This feature requires Content Station version 9.5.0 or higher.

Malayalam is a language spoken in India. Fonts for this language work somewhat differently than any custom installed font. To properly support Malayalam fonts in Content Station, a font package is therefore provided.

Note: Only the text that is written in the Malayalam language (using an appropriate keyboard) is shown in this font, such as file names and text within articles. The text in Content Station itself will not be displayed in this font but in one of the supported languages.

Steps for Content Station Web

Step 1. Download Content Station Web from the software download page by downloading the file that has '[CJK]' in its file name.

Example: Download the file named

Content Station 9.x.x Build xxx - Web [CJK]

instead of

Content Station 9.x.x Build xxx - Web

Step 2. Unzip the file and re-name the resulting folder to contentstation.

Step 3. Copy the folder to the root folder of the Enterprise server (that means: in the same folder where the config and server folders are also located.) The location is dependent on the system and HTTP Server used (Apache/IIS), but should normally be in one of the following locations:

  • Mac OS: /Library/Web Server/Documents/Enterprise
  • Windows: c:\inetpub\wwwroot\Enterprise
  • Linux: /var/www/html/Enterprise

Step 4. Set the Malayalam font for Content Station by enabling and defining the following setting:

  • File: WWSettings.xml
  • Name of option: Font
  • Area: Anywhere between the <SCEnt:ContentStation> and </SCEnt:ContentStation> tags
  • Value: malayam.swf
  • Example:

<Setting name="Font" value="style/malayalam.swf"/>

Important: Make sure to validate the WWSettings.xml file for correct content. See Validating the WWSettings.xml file.

Steps for Content Station AIR

Content StationMac 9.x.x Build xxx - Air

Step 2. Unzip the downloaded file.

Step 6. (Optional) To change the location, do one of the following:

  • Manually enter a new location
  • Click the Folder icon to browse to a location

Step 7. Click Continue.
