I have a multilanguage Joomla website.

How can I configure my site so that when someone types any url, it will always bring them to: www.mysite.com ?

Currently, a suffix is always added to my site name. Thats okay for when languages are chosen, but I just don't want that for my default landing page.

I tried the following modification in htaccess. I think it's just looping back to my website with the suffix.

RewriteRule ^en/(.*)$ /$1 [R=301,L] 

Is this even possible?

In Language Filter plugin, enable the Remove URL Language Code.

This setting will remove the language url code from the urls for the default content language of your website.

  • Yes, that removes language url code from all sites by default language. Actually i want to remove url code only from landing page.

  • @Navitua sorry, from your htaccess code, I thought you wanted to redirect all pages of default language and it was not very clear what you meant with default landing page. So you have a landing page which is will be the same for all languages, or what? Keep in mind that Joomla will keep redirecting pages to meet the appropriate language url code.
