    Hi,

    We are using <localization persistenceMode="PathPrefix" ...>

    Setting <cms redirectToHomePage="false" ...> in web.config only seems to have an effect for the default culture; other cultures still redirect to the home page URL (/de redirects to /de/home).

    How can we make this work for non-default cultures?

    Thanks,

    Paul

    Hello Paul Markham,

    This is a problem with the localization and path prefix. You see that ASP.NET treats the /de path as another folder thus it looks for the default document there and Sitefinity loads your home page. You can try creating a folder /de in your website root and see what will be the result.

    Hi Radoslav,

    Creating a 'de' folder has no effect I'm afraid.

    Regards,

    Paul

    Hi,

    Do you have any other suggestions, or is redirectToHomePage="false" simply incompatible with localization?

    Thanks.
