Hi - my site was working perfectly until I switch the default languages from English to Japanese.

My English URLs show -

however the Japanese version shows -

ALL of my translated URLs/Permalinks are now showing the /5976-2/ in the permalink which I cannot edit.

/5976-2/ needs to be /home/ otherwise the Japanese version of the homepage does not look like the English version.

This means the homepage of my website is not displaying properly. See -

Please help me before I go crazy. The website was working perfectly and this issue only happened when I keep changing back and forth between the default languages.
