Hi Frank,

Thank you for contacting WPML support, I'd be happy to help you with this issue.

Sorry for the delayed response - it has been a full queue for the past few days and it can take a bit longer to respond.

You can try to revert the workaround from the documentation
and go to admin area > Settings > General > Set WordPress and Site Address (URL) to "hidden link", notice the slash (/) at the end > Save changes and save permalink settings to see if it helps.

Also, you are using the option "Use directory for default language", you need to have a root page. Please follow the documentation below to redirect the root page to the default language directory.

Look forward to your reply.

The topic ‘[Closed] Slow Loading when "Use directory for default language" option is enabled.’ is closed to new replies.
