I have a website with 2 languages. Each language is setup as a different site. Each site has its own base URL which is defined as follows: @defaultUrl/en and @defaultUrl/fr.

I have created a new single section which will be the about page with URI /about. This translates to https://mywebsite.com/en/about.

The issue I am encountering is that https://mywebsite.com/about is also a valid URL. How can I make sure that this either throws a 404 or redirects to https://mywebsite.com/en/about? I want the locale to always be present in the URL.

  • What do you have in your section's URL path settings? It should give you per-site routing, so that /about should not exist. Commented Sep 19, 2023 at 9:56
  • In the section settings I see 2 rows. 1 for each site and the URI is about. Should I prefix this with something else?

  • Yes! Prefix with each site's locale slug. Then /about should 404. Commented Sep 19, 2023 at 12:53

Go to your section's settings under Settings > Sections and find the table that lists your Entry URI Formats - you'll have a row for each site. Prefix each path with the site's locale, and then /about should resolve to a 404.

  • When I do this I can only access the page on mywebsite.com/en/en/about. This is because the base URL for the site also contains the locale. When I remove the locale from the base URL I can't use the homepage at mywebsite.com/en anymore.
