I am setting up an additional language on my website. It will take a while, which is why I've chosen to hide language from visitors until I am ready to launch it.

However, as I am translating pages to this new language, I find that it is not possible for me - the administrator of the site - to preview the pages I am translating. When I click Preview, the new tab just opens the current frontpage of the site's main language.

I'm wondering if this is caused by my hiding the new language. But this should of course still be available to me for development purposes. How can I solve this, so I can preview pages in the hidden language?

Thanks for a great set of plugins. 🙂
