I am trying to to show the alternative languages in the language switcher first, because somebdoy how does not speak German and does not know the German flag might wonder how and where he could switch to English.

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:
hidden link right next to the menu

I expected to see: The language switcher should show the English while the German Website is loaded and should show German while the English Website is loaded.

Languages: English (English )

Timezone: Asia/Colombo (GMT+05:30)


Thank you for contacting WPML support.

There is no such option yet in the language switcher but you can simply uncheck this option "Current language" : hidden link
So your German page show English flag and your English page will show German flag.

Also, please note that you can have this option only if you choose "List of languages" : hidden link

Does this solve the issue?
