Hello

I understand that you need to set the page-id for the homepage in TR language. Is this correct?

Please provide the following information:

Post id of home page in Turkish.
Post id of home page in Arabic.

SInce I cannot read either language, I need to go by the post-id to help you. You can see the post-id of the page in the top URL bar of the screen when you eidt the page.

Thank you

post=979 : this is the arabic page

the turkish page doesn't exist anyway, but if you can, would you set this page hidden link as the home page?

this is its id post=3960 (turkish version)

I have set the post-id 3960 as the home page for TR.
However, I am confused by what you are attempting to do.

The system sees the post-id=3960 as a DUPLICATE of the Arabic post-íd=3731 (see image)

However, you are attempting to set the home page in Arabic to post-id=979
This cannot be.

The home page in both AR and TR should be linked as translations of each other. Otherwise, when you change your language, you will potentially get a 404 error.

What you should do is link the TR post-id=3960 with the AR post-id=979 if, indeed, they are trnaslations of each other.

Like I said - you need to link the two pages as translations of each other.

Do you agree that 3960 (tr) needs to be the translation of 979 (ar)?
If so, I will link them together as translations or you can do this by
- independently editing post 3960 so it is no longer a duplicate of post-id=3731
- then using "connect with translations" from within the editor of post-id=3960, link it with post-id=979

If you can do that for me, I'd appreciate it really, I'm so bad at using such plugins to be honest.
