my website's default language should be ro but I get redirected to /en/

WPML Multilingual CMS Installed Yes 2.6.1
WPML CMS Nav Download No n/a
WPML String Translation Installed Yes 1.5.1
WPML Sticky Links Download No n/a

I read that this is a bug fixed in ver 2.6.2, but I can't find it.

Dear Laura and Gytis,

I have sent a copy of development version to both of you.

Please download the development version, go to plugins menu.

Deactivate WPML Multilingual CMS plugin, delete its files complete, then upload the development version and activate the plugin.

Let me know if this resolves the problem.

Dear Harshad,

Thanks for DEV version. Installed according to your instructions - problem is solved. Tested two cases:
1. Browser language redirect: Disable browser language redirect - unwanted redirection does not happen anymore, primary language version is shown - OK
2. Browser language redirect: Redirect visitors based on browser language only if translations exist - redirection to secondary language happen, but it is expected according to setting - OK

Thanks, issue solved! 🙂

The same issue over here.
I would also be needing the dev version. Could You please provide it as soon as possible.

Hello Harshad,
I'm having exactly the same problem as the other people you helped by sending a copy of development version. My default language is Albanian and the second one is English. Any time someone open the website it automatically redirects to the English even the default language is Albanian.

Please help!

Hello Alban,

I already found the solution here:

WPML staff has not sent me the dev version nor given any feedback, so a crappy experience here, posted the same question twice.

The topic ‘[Closed] homepage redirects to secondary language’ is closed to new replies.
