Yes, I think we changed this behavior going from 5 R2 Sp2 to 6 R1. You could solve it by doing a redirect in IIS. So if you go to www.site.com you get to redirected to www.site.com/en/ or what ever language you have as default.
Also, check your EPiServerFramework.config and see if you have a set a language for a address/url or not. If you have, then it will strip away the language code from the urls.
It was set in my EPiServerFramework.congif to have <add name="*" language="en" />, so I removed the language="en" part and it is now <add name="*" /> but will this cause any problems anywhere else for users coming from other countries? I tested it out and it seems to all be ok. Not sure if it's something that's not obvious that it could affect.
If not, it's all set. Thanks!
I think you should read http://world.episerver.com/Documentation/Items/Tech-Notes/EPiServer-CMS-6/EPiServer-CMS-6-R2/Globalization/to get a better sense of what is happening behind the scenes.
But short answer is no, shouldn't make a difference if you have set up English as the default language in web.config.
We have developed a site in en,en-gb and fr languages. We have set en-gb as default language.
Below are the diaplaying Urls in each language.
www.examplesite.com/sales ---> This is the default language (en-gb).
I want to display default language url as www.examplesite.com/en-gb/sales/.
Can you please advice how to achieve the above functionality. We are using Episerver 6.0
Thanks in advance.
