I am using WPML for hidden link and want a different domain per language (English and French). The French domain is hidden link. In the "Language URL format" section, everything saves properly and the French website comes up properly at hidden link. The problem, however, happens when the url is hidden link. When the www is added, the website defaults to the English version. Can you help?

Hi,

could you share with me your DNS configuration? I checked for redirects in your other domain but there aren't, so maybe there is some issue with the configuration.

Also check our documentation: https://wpml.org/2016/04/use-wpml-different-domains-per-language/

Thanks for getting back to me. Is this what you need to see?

Hi,

yes, it is. You could try to set even the www. site on A domain and point to the same IP, to see if this fixes the issue.

It's not clear if you used cPanel to set up the domains, in that case, remember that you need to use a parked or an addon domain. See here: https://wpml.org/2016/04/use-wpml-different-domains-per-language/

If this doesn't help, check your .htaccess file to see if there is some kind of rewrite rule.
