Ticket: Switched default languages Bug

EE Version 5.2.2

Hi Brian,
After going live the client requested to switch the default languages of the website. the primary language has no URL prefix but others do. When having done the switch I’m no longer able to get a language list either than default when using {exp:publisher:languages}, however if I go to the non default language by using the url prefix i see the default.

Let me know if there is something i can do to fix this. Maybe something in the Database that did change? Or maybe a cookie issue? because when I switch from the non default back to the default I see the url go to the url prefix version briefly, it throws and error on page and then redirects to the home. The error is a TOO MANY REDIRECTS.

Another thing when in the non default language the {translated_url} behaves as it should as you browse the pages.

Can you provide more info so I can see what you’re seeing? A quick video capture or something describing the issue in full? Also sharing a URL to where I can see this happen would help too.

That still isn’t really enough information to help me with the issue. I see the redirects happening, but that is all I know.

Did you clear your EE cache?

Are there any other htaccess re-write rules in place?

Does this happen only on the home page or does it happen on sub pages too?

Have you tried enabling the language prefix for Portuguese to see what happens?

What are your URL Translation settings set to? (screenshots of your Publisher settings pages help)

Closing ticket for lack of response, it’s been over a month. Feel free to re-open if this is still an issue and you can provide answers to previous questions.
