Language Redirect
[resolved] Alternative solution: root (only) redirect (3 posts)

    Since this plugin will always redirect users to one specific language version, even if they wanted to access other versions, it might be a good idea to use this solution by Andreas Breitschopp. It only redirects visitors coming via root, so they can move freely afterwards.

    Hi!
    Sorry that I didn't answer before, I missed to configure the support forum to be notified.
    The solution of Andreas and my plugin are based on the same idea and might be even based on the same source code. The difference is only that Andreas (and the original creator) prefers a theme and I prefer a plugin. The behavior is exactly the same.
    Sorry again for the late response!!

    Hi Björn (did you know that your name means bear in Swedish?),

    I remember that I deinstalled your plugin because even I could not access the english version of my site any more - I always got redirected back to the German site. So, for me it was completely unusable, since I wanted me and everybody else to decide for themselves which language to have, and not being redirected back all the time. The idea might have been the same, but the effect and behaviour seem to be quite different!

    Kind regards,
    Manuel
