Home page defaulting to Spanish Language


Post by clintonkopotic »

I know this has been brought up before with different languages at different times, but I wanted to make sure if anyone else is seeing what I'm seeing. When I go to https://lds.org, I get redirected to https://www.lds.org/?lang=spa, instead of https://www.lds.org/?lang=eng. Also, when I go to the directory the ward list is in English but the rest of the website (headers and footers) are in Spanish. I've tried clearing my cookies and have tried all browsers (Chrome 23, Firefox 16.0.2, Safari 5.1.7, Opera 12.02, and IE 9 on a Win Vista laptop). I have also left feed back on the home page about it.

Me too - I'm pretty good with computers but it would seem the Church (LDS.org) wants me to learn Spanish? :)

(Even though English is set as the preferred language in my settings/account.)

One of the better (and longer) threads on this subject is found here. You may wish to hop on over there and try a few of the ideas that have been successful for others.

I had the same problem. It only happened on Firefox.

Once I have cleared the cookies AND the cache it went back to English.
