Simple Address doesn't work for root (global) pages in a multi-site configuration



Please help with the following issue (I had a similar issue in a production project, but wanted to reproduce it in an isolated environment)


  • Episerver CMS Visual Studio Extension v8.0,.0.53 installed
  • Created a new Alloy MVC project
  • EPiServer.CMS udpated to v8.5.
  • EPiServer.CMS.UI udpated to v8.2.0
  • hosts file contains ""
  • Project reconfigured to use IIS
  • IIS accepts and host names
  • "no" added to site languages
  • 2 sites configured:
    • with Culture="en", looks at the original "Start" page
    • with Culture="no", looks to the newly created "" page of type "Start Page" (created in English, translated to Norwegian)

Steps to reproduce

  • set simple Address for "Alloy Plan" page to "plan"
  • shows "Alloy Plan" (as expected)
  • Move "Alloy Plan" page as a child of Root (at the same level as start pages)
  • Translate "Alloy Plan" to Norwegian
  • Set Simple Address to "plan-no" (another option - set it to "plan")
  • shows English version
  • shows Norwegian version

Actual ResultSubmit returns 404

Expected Result shows English version of the "Alloy Plan" page
