Hello, i'm using this function:

function my_permalink_redirect($permalink) {
global $post;
if ($post->ID == 6342) {
$permalink = '/en/about-us/vision/';
return $permalink;

That should redirect when page is opened to another page, but i have two languages: English and Slovenian. When i try to go to english and open this page, it redirects to slovean page not the english one.

What could be the issue here?

Thank you for contacting WPML Support.

From what I understand, if the current postID is 6342, you are redirecting to the English page. Please note that the postID is different for a page & the translation of that page.
So when you change the language the postID is not matched & hence it will not be redirected to the given link.

You can have look at this documentation for all the hooks available in WPML:

If you want to get the current language code, you can use this hook:

Hi Rohan,

No, That is page that is alredy translated to english, its an page that is only for SEO, it's empty, and if you try to access it it should redirect to page that has this page as parent. So the url will look like /services/service1. I hope you understand me.

Kind regards

I don't get the exact issue.

This is what I understood from your code:
1. if the postID == 6342, then you set the $permalink value to "/en/about-us/vision/"
2. when you switch language, it's not working

While switching language, please try to print the value of the postID & make sure that the value is 6342.

If this is not what you are asking, could you please explain this in a more detailed/step by step way so that I can understand better.
