please help - second language when logged in goes to /fr/

Post by livvving » Fri May 16, 2014 4:30 pm

I've set up an English site with a French sublanguage.

All is perfect, but when you log in to the site in French, you are redirected to http://scs-css.ca/fr/welcome instead of http://scs-css.ca/welcome

and you get a 404 error which shows a partial english and partial french disaster. The only way to get out of that is to remove the /fr/ from the url.

I've set it up correctly in the log in page - there's nothing wrong with the redirect after login url. I've even installed a 404 redirection script and set it up, but it doesn't work. This is the only page that does it.

I need to get this site live today - can't figure this one out.

Try the following:

- In the Language Manager, make French as the Default Site language
- In the Plugin Manager, in the plugin "System - Language Filter", for the option "Remove URL Language Code" choose the value Yes

Is that site set as a core multilanguage site?
