I'm trying to see the English frontpage on our test site: when I'm in a incognito browser it works, however when logged in as an admin it keeps redirecting me to the Dutch page. However when I go to an translated article and switch to English it does work if I then click on the logo which should go it again redirects to just Doing this again logged out and incognito there are again not any issues.

I'm not sure why this is happening, but wish to understand the problem before moving the plugin to our live Environment.

Especially since I wish to use the 'show hidden languages' functionality also, which at this moment isn't working also.

Benvenuto al supporto cliente WPML.
Farò del mio meglio per aiutarti a risolvere questo problema.

That behavior sounds like the browser redirection feature but i see that feature is not active on the site.

That redirection creates a cookie that redirects you to the language of the browser so maybe if you activated it once in the past, it could've left a cookie in your device which hasn't expired yet.

May i ask if this happens when you are logged-in as admin on an incognito mode tab as well?

Or if you try to do the same on another browser?

Let me know.
