I was looking for a possibility to display the full language name in URL instead of like
Something like --> or -->

I looked around the "Language URL format" but seems it isn't available, so was wondering if any how I could add that?


One more, thing I had here, since I have an RTL language, is it also possible to change the WordPress Post Editor to RTL when translating posts from English to an RTL language?

Appreciate any help or comments.

Hi there.

Per our Support Policy, we can handle only one issue per ticket.

Continuing with one issue per ticket helps not only supporters to focus on one issue at once, but also enables other users to find solutions to their questions faster.

We will handle the first request (changing the language code in the URL) in this ticket and for the other one (RTL-related), I created a new ticket here and you will be notified via email when there's a reply on that one, too:

Changing the language code is not possible (a my colleague mentioned in the ticket below) but his recommendation is a perfect workaround if you want to accomplish exactly that:

I hope that you will find this information helpful 🙂

Have a lovely rest of the day.
