Simple address for secondary language



I have a site called with two languagebranches: "fi" and "sv-fi". If I add a simple address for a page located on the "sv-fi" languagebranch of this site, i am forced to use the language-prefix in the url when accessing that url. For example:

Page1 located in the languagebranch "sv-fi" has the simple address:

I cannot simply access it by using the address but instead I have to add

Is there any way around this, or is it just episervers way of dealing with correct URL's for sub-languagebranches for a site with a masterlanguage (in my case "fi")?

I remember Simple Address was a problem for multilingual sites in CMS 6 (only works on master language), but as mentioned in this CMS 6 thread it should have been fixed in EPiServer 7 -  but according to this CMS 7 thread it seems to still be buggy.

The bug report suggests a workaround:

"In case where you have multiple siteHosts you need to have the default one without any language prefix to work around it."

  • EPi 7: episerverframework.config, <sitehostmapping> node.
  • EPi 7.5: Admin > Config > Manage websites
