    Hmm … I have for example a page that references itself.

    <link rel="alternate" hreflang="de" href="" title="Deutsch" />
    <link rel="alternate" hreflang="it" href="" title="Italiano" />

    It should work if the pages are correctly tied together. Could you give me an example where this is the case?

    OK, sure. There is a connection between EN-RU. Page

    If you look at the page code, you will see that there is only a bunch to another page, without reference to itself.

    `<link rel=’alternate’ type=’application/json+oembed’ href=’/wp-json/oembed/1.0/embed?’ />
    <link rel=’alternate’ type=’text/xml+oembed’ href=’/wp-json/oembed/1.0/embed?’ />
    <link rel=’alternate’ hreflang=’ru’ href=’/ru/’ title=’ru_RU’ />
    <style type=”text/css” media=”print”>#wpadminbar { display:none; }</style>
    <style type=”text/css” media=”screen”>

    Help me, pleas with this problem.

    Hi, Dennis! I need your help about plugin.

    I tried to understand if there is a problem but I can’t even repeat this. Three sites with totally different configuration don’t have this problem:, and to give you these examples.

    What I don’t get, is: Why does one of your screens have Russian output in the English part of the website?

    Denis. I installed the plugin so that the pages of my sites with subdirectories /ru /pl /ua were identified by Google and correlated to the audience of the language in which they are written. I installed the plugin. And the plugin does not generate links to itself on the pages. Also, Google Search Console defined many bugs (hreflang bugs). I need the plugin to add a link to each page on itself with the attribute of the alternative.

    How can I fix this?
