Overview of the issue

If you are using Rank Math SEO plugin and its Remove base option in conjunction with WPML’s Different domains per language setting, it may lead to excessive redirections, resulting in the ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS error.


Please, make sure of having a full site backup of your site before proceeding.

  • Open …/wp-content/plugins/seo-by-rank-math/includes/modules/woocommerce/class-product-redirection.php file.
  • Look for line 139.
  • Replace:
    $link = trim( str_replace( Helper::get_home_url(), '', get_permalink() ), '/' );
  • With:
    // WPML -  Workaround for compsupp-7311
    $home_url = Helper::get_home_url(); 
    if ( 
    	Sitepress::get()->is_active() &&
    	$sitepress_settings['language_negotiation_type'] == 2
    ) {
    	$home_url = get_home_url();
    $link = trim( str_replace( $home_url, '', get_permalink() ), '/' );
