Is there any way to detect the country of the visitor and redirect it to appropriate pages and cultu

veronica madsen asked on May 9, 2015 20:43


I am using kentico on my local machine under trial version of 14 days. I created the pages for different cultures Arabic ,chinese and by default US English. Now I want every page to detect where the visitor is coming from and redirect to the appropriate page. i realize that detecting country by browser setting is not the most accurate but its better than nothing.

What version of Kentico are you looking at? Ultimate or EMS? If Ultimate then you will probably have to do something custom coded using browser configurations.

If you are using EMS, you could look at the new Personas component and look at building it against that.

@Veronica, you can use macro's. Currently the way I do it, is to use the AnalyticsContext in Macro's. With respect to what Virgil indicated, I am not sure if you can still use this context below Ultimate.

{% AnalyticsContext.CurrentGeoLocation.State |(user)zbynekh|(hash)03813116ae982ef0ab42e6c3be836f4c7e29472d741acffc1e0197aecf949563%}

The above will give me the state of the visitor, or you can get country, city, etc. etc. Remember it is using the current IP address to resolve so if their IP address is showing a different location it won't be exact. There are many more properties under the CurrentGeoLocation that you can use I recommend just trying it out. Then you could use a Logic Macro and resolve, then a redirect link.
