[SOLVED] Too many redirects - language filter problem?

Postby peterva » Sun Jan 04, 2015 5:47 pm

PROBLEM
When SEF is OFF, all languages work ok.

When SEF is ON, only the default language works.
For the other languages, the language codes (/en and /de) get stripped from the URL.
Example: http://mysite.com/en/ladies becomes http://mysite.com/ladies

Effect:
ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS on English and German Homepage
404 – not found on other pages

When Plugins > Language Filter > Remove URL Language Code = OFF:
ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS on ALL pages, including default Dutch

Any known fixes?

SOLVED

I had the plugin System - MVC Override activated.
Disabled this plugin, now the language filter works ...
