Hello WPML,
Our website is access by multiple domain name, when each domain is set with different language by WPML.
We want to add a second domain name which use an already existing language code (fr-ca) in our site.

How can we achieve this?

Tnx Yaniv

Hi,

Thank you for contacting WPML support.

This is the first time we ever received such request.
Currently there is no any option to do this.

You may try adding a custom language with the same language code that you are using already (hidden link) but this is not tested yet.
You can check and see.

I asked this in our 2nd tier support as well.
If they give me any workaround I'll update you again.

Regards,
Riffaz.

Update:

How did you setup this now and how you want it to be.
In WPML you can have only one domain name per language.
So it's bit confusing here.

Hi Riffaz,
Thank you for your reply.
We set it temporary with custom language code but it causing us a lot of issues with SEO,
Our site is available in all kind of languages under different domains, and we need to create a new domain with modified content which should also use fr-ca language code.

Tnx Yaniv

Hi,

I understand your situation but what you are asking is simply is not possible yet.
It's a brand new request.
As I informed you already our second tier is checking this.
I'll update you again once I get a reply from them.

Hi,

Second tier is asking this:
How did you setup this now and how you want it to be?

They mean how did you create these sites with different domains.
They need the steps to check the possiblities.
