Homepages keeps redirecting to default (4 posts)

    Hi guys,

    i've experienced problem using polylang on my wordpress - I've default lang set to en, and I also have three other languages. I've latest posts from specific category listed on my homepage (query_posts($query_string . '&cat='.pll_get_term(5).'&posts_per_page=4');) and I can't get my other language homepages working - it keeps me redirecting (301) from other language homepage to default one (mydomain.com/de -- 301 --> mydomain.com)
    which of course is in default lang.
    What I want to do is to have all four homepages under:
    mydomain.com - default - en
    displaying posts from translated categories.

    My settings:
    - permalink structure: /%postname%/
    - language codde added to all urls
    - unchecked when accessing homepage, set the lang...
    - no /language/ in permalinks
    - hide language info for the default one
    - allow to synchronize categories....

    I'd really appriciate your help - got stuck for couple of hours :( on something which I hope will show up quite simple to solve...

    Did you ever figure it out? I am running into the exact same problem with very similar settings.
    I tried with most combinations of settings on the language settings page and nothing works.

    I have a few sites on which I run polylang without this problem (and they have very similar settings too!)

    yes I did, but how...I can hardly remember :( As far as I remember, I changed reading settings - homepage shows static page and created static page with no content + three translations of this page. Now when I choose one of them as a static page in reading settings, everything works well.

    Anyway, I couldn't make it work, when I had latest posts checked in the reading settings.

    Hope it's gonna work for you :)

    Thanks for your reply.

    I ended up backing up my database and recreating my home page from that. For some reason it worked fine after I deleted and re-created the page (my settings in reading were already OK so no idea what was causing it)

    I am thinking that maybe I restored from the backup before I installed polylang the first time and maybe that's what caused the problem? In any case, everything is fixed now.
