I've been scratching my head for a while now, been trying everything I could find in this forums but nothing helps! When I enter my homepage it's always in English, I've added the following to _config.php

//Set Default Language

The site response:
The requested page couldn't be found.

But if i add "?stage=Live&locale=sv_SE" The Swedish site appears!

But can't get it to work! I've tried to empty the database and start from scratch but if i don't add a page for "English" the site won't open, and if I add a page for "English" it always opens the English version of the page!

How hard can it be to get another language as default/start language?

hi gonace,

i had a similar problem. If i remember it correctly i solved this by chaning the url and/ or title of the page you need to be the
default language in 'home'. Name the other one something like 'home_en'

I'm curious if this will solve your problem.
