I almost completed my website and made all the translations with WPML.
But now I realised that it would be better to change the default language to our own (Dutch) language.
I read in another topic here ( that it shouldn't make any problem.
And it didn't... only for one page, the most important page...
hidden link
It redirects to the Dutch translation... only this page... all the other don't do that.

I use Turbo Car Rental theme/plugin.

Is this something that I can solve?

Thank you for contacting the WPML Support.

It seems the issue was solved after simply re-saving the permalinks inside of the WordPress settings.

Could you please confirm that everything is working as expected?

Otherwise, please let me know if you need any further assistance.

Kind regards
