Please Help! How Do I Uninstall All Languages?

Post by SugarDupree » Tue Oct 23, 2018 10:38 am

I added about 20 languages a few months ago then my website went from www.example.com to www.example.com/en.

All traffic is being redirected to www.example.com/en and that's causing all sorts of problems with links and 404s.

How do I get my website back to being www.example.com? I want to delete all the languages but I somehow am not able to delete all the languages. They keep coming up even after uninstall.

Should I just go on Components and delete Languages? It says Languages is a protected app though and a padlock is next to it. What happens if I delete that? Will I break my site? I really need my site to be a .com

Regards

If you want to use Multilanguage feature but don't want the links of your default language changing, enable Remove URL Language Code option in Language Filter plugin.
