#265 – Wrong homepage on multilingual site with default language disabled

Status: Closed - Category: Route 66
Steps to reproduce the issue
Setup a basic multilingual site:
During Joomla! installation, install additional language and enable Activate the multilingual feature and Install localized content options.
After installation, go to Language Filter plugin and enable Remove URL Language Code option.
Change Home menu item in Main Menu to some other type so we can tell the difference, e.g. Articles -> List all categories.
Install Route 66.
Go to site homepage.

Expected result

English homepage opens (Category Blog).

Actual result

Default homepage opens (Articles -> List all categories)

Potential fix

plugins/system/route66/lib/router66.php, line 125, add empty path check.

if ($path === '' || $path == $this->currentLanguage->sef) {
	$this->isMenuItem = true;
Sorry, typo in title. Meant to say default language code, not default language.

We have already fixed tis since it has been reported by other users. The fix will get included in the next update, and it's exactly like yours.

Thank you very much for the great feedback.
