I want to remove this string "?___from_store=example" from my URL and i dont know how. I have two stories with different language and when I press a diferent Store my url converts to https://website.com/example1/?___from_store=example2

So "/example1/" its the store where i am actually and "=example2" it was the store where i was before.

How can remove this part from URL? https://website.com/example1/?___from_store=example2

My URL Options are:

  • Add Store Code to URLs -> Yes
  • Auto-redirect to Base URL -> Yes(302)

Search Engine Optimization:

  • Use Web Server Rewrites -> Yes

If i set Add store Code to URLs as No When you change the store the URL is different -> https://example.com/?___store=example2&___from_store=example1

The string from URL https://website.com/example1/?___from_store=example2 dissapear..
