Hey, i habe 3 languages. 2 on the Main Site and the 3rd one has an own Domain.

I tried this code, but how can i insert the link and open it in a new tab? The Domain is hidden link

Code in Functions PHP:
add_filter( 'icl_ls_languages', function( $languages ) {
$languages['ru']['url'] = '<u>hidden link</u>';
return $languages;

My other Problem is i am using the Shortcode [wpml_language_selector_widget] and the first language doesn't get show because there is no content on the website in that language (Because the "ru" language has its own domain.

Thank you for contacting us. To do exactly what you want, you will need to use extra custom code. You can either create a custom JavaScript or create a custom selector to do this.

To create a custom selector you can see in our documentation:
