Simple address on English page in EPiServer 7



We're trying to apply a simple address on an English page in EPiServer 7.

However, after we've specified the address and try to navigate to the page we end up with a 404.

I've read about this behavior being filed as a bug in previous versions but I don't know if our version of EPiServer should've sorted it out. We're running EPiServer.CMS.Core/EPiServer.Framework version="7.0.586.24".

Any input would be appreciated!

In one of our projects we are using this EPiServer version together with Simple Adresses.

When you set the simple address, for example for page1, then all subpages are skiped., and you set simple address as "simpleaddress", then new URL also will be available on:

Are you testing it that way?

And thank you for answering!

I'm not 100% sure what you mean but I will give an example on how we set the simple address today.

We have a page in Swedish, for example That page is translated into English, thus getting an URL like We then specify a simple address for the English page, 'simpleaddress', which should make the URL work.

When we enter in the browser we expect to end up on the English page but instead we end up with a 404.

I did some testing on Alloy and I'm able to reproducde the issue.

It happened only if in Admin Mode->Manage Website ( I set culture as SV for Then only address with language prefix worked:

But when I left Culture blank then worked as well.

We are having the same problem with our newly developed epi 7 environment (running on ver 7.19.1) Is there any other way to fix the problem other than to set culture blank?

In our old epi6 environment we had <globalization culture="sv-SE" and culture = blank, and that led to all our swedish page needed to have a /sv/ in the adress (For example: but with the new setup (with globalization culture="en-US" and culture = sv set on all sites) episerver didn´t need that /sv/-part in our URLs anymore, but with the drawback that english short-urls do not work correctly. (page can´t be find (404 error) if there is no swedish version of the page, and if there is a swedish language version the english short url jumps to the swedish version instead)
