YAMS Language Flag List

How can I create a linked list of flags pointing to different language versions?

Use a YAMS repeat call to loop over all languages and output the flag list:

[[YAMS?
&get=`repeat`
&beforetpl=`@CODE:<ul>`
&repeattpl=`otherFlagItemTpl`
&currenttpl=`currentFlagItemTpl`
&aftertpl=`@CODE:</ul>`
]]

Here "otherFlagItemTpl" is a chunk that contains a linked flag image:

<li class="yams_lang_(yams_id)"><a href="(yams_docr)" lang="(yams_tag)" xml:lang="(yams_tag)" dir="(yams_dir)" title="(yams_name_in_(yams_id+))"><img alt="(yams_name)" src="[(site_url)]assets/images/flags/(yams_id).png" /></a></li>

and "currentFlagItemTpl" is a chunk that contains an unlinked flag image:

<li class="yams_lang_(yams_id) yams_current"><img alt="(yams_name)" src="[(site_url)]assets/images/flags/(yams_id).png" /></li>

Flag images with the filename format (yams_id).png should be placed in the directory "assets/images/flags/".
