Weglot language switcher on mobile

Recommended Posts


I added Weglot as an extension on my website to make it bilingual. I styled the language switcher icons to my liking, looks great now and perfectly matches my site style. However, on mobile, the language switcher icons are displayed on my menu overlay (after selecting the hamburger menu). How can I have it displayed on mobile in the site header, so people instantly see my website is bilingual? 

I am an a business plan.

Totally happy with my website, except for this. Any help or coding would be great!

To be honest, they didn’t help me out at all. The sent me instructions how to customise the switcher itself within the Squarespace platform. If they had taken a look at my website, they instantly would have seen that I know how to do that, I even used CSS to tweak it even more. I didn’t ask for help on that.

For placing the switcher on my mobile header instead of in the overlay menu, my question, they said: well, that’s up to squarespace (basically).


So my question still remains unsolved 😉

Hi, Thanks a lot for your answer.
The language switcher seems to be added by default in the menu.
As it is a language switcher created and managed by Squarespace, I'm not certain how you could move this language switcher only on the mobile version to place it outside of the menu.
I can either propose you discuss this further with Squarespace about this specific demand or as a workaround I think we could try to replace the current language switcher with the default Weglot one, not sure it could work however it is worth a try if you're not able to find a solution with the current language switcher.
Have a wonderful day
