    I am having a big problem with xLanguage. I am using a static page as my frontpage, but the problem is, that when I try to change the language while being on the frontpage it redirects to a page with a list of all my posts.

    Anyone experiencing the same problem or have a solution?

    I had same problem.
    It was .htaccess file having problem.
    I saved in mode of UTF8. must be saved ASKII mode.
    i changed it,add permission 666 and set on the config page of wordpress about "permanent link".
    i set it "numeber" link name.(i do not know how to say cos i am using japanese version)
    then front page came with like this page's URL

    I mean, saved UTF8 that is very basicaly my falt, but there is the problem around ".htaccess" flie or "permission" or "Apache configlation(AllowOverride)", could be.

    *wordpress can access to .htaccess file and overwrite , when you set permanent link.but if you didint add permission 666, wordpress say "you must change contents of .htaccess by your self"so, if you can change it, you should do before you do anything.

    similar / same problem.
    xlanguage is adding the following suffix to language link to home page and therefore the link does not work and gets rerouted to the "no posts found page" (I am not using posts, only pages here)

    chinichiro's answer looks a little complicated and unclear.
    Can't seem to find a solution and am going have to try a different plugin which is not what I want to do, unless ....?

    Yey - OK, got it resolved by changing Permalink setting in WP Settings from Default (I used "Day & Name")

    # if you do not need staticURL, just set default of permalink
    # check and dig anything around .htaccess
    # check permission of . htaccess to 666
    # fixed your pages? from settings
    # check again permalink(i am using "number")
    # your server allows "AllowOverride"?

    I having a little bit of a different problem. I have a static page. On this page I am using some javascript to create a series of tabs. When I click to change the langauges it seems to be breaking the script.I am using the same script on the single.php pages I have and there is no problem there. I know it has something to do with the way I have linked the script on the static page but I can't seem to figure it out.  If anyone has any time to help me out it would be greatly appreciated. The current page is www.beta.cieducationportal.org. There is a password and username set since my organization really does't want anyone to see the site yet. However, since I am stumped on this one I need to open it up to community for a little while.

    The user name is: ADMIN the password is: CHINAED1212

    both are in all capital letters. I will be changing this in a few days. Thanks in advance for anyone who can help.

    If anyone else is having the problem I mentioned above I figured it out. It looks like if you want run any scripting on your static page with xlanguage installed you cannot use site relative links you must use the full path to the directory. Thanks.

    Hi there,
    same problem here. It does not work with the default permalinks, but it does with any of the other ones. Trouble is that no matter what other permalink choice I tick the URL do not really correspond to the page title.
    Any ideas on how to correct that?
