I am trying to: Change the default language from Dutch to English. This website will be a .com instead of an .nl. There for I want the default language to be English. When I started building this website (on a test environment) I did not realize that the default website should be English instead of Dutch. Therefore I want to change it before we go live.

URL of (my) website where problem appears: hidden link

I expected to see: The website as an English website.
So: hidden link (This should be the English version)
and: hidden link (this should be the Dutch version)

Instead, I got: Strange styling and It automaticly goes to the blog page and problems with the perma links. In conclusion, it is not working rightnow

Thank you for reporting your issue.
May I kindly ask you to update your WPML plugins to the latest versions?
You can download it from the download section of your account.

Remember to backup your database and website first before you proceed. You can use a plugin for this if you like. I often use the Duplicator plugin for this purpose.

Please let me know if this solves your issue.
