Reported for: WPML Multilingual CMS 3.3.7
Resolved in: 3.4
Overview of the issue
In order to reproduce this issue:
- You need to be logged-in as a user that is not an administrator.
- From the back-end, using the admin language switcher, switch to a different language.
- Visit Posts and attempt to edit the post’s translation by clicking the pencil icon: you will get a link that leads to ###
This is a rare case happening only when certain conditions are met:
- WPML is configured to use the WPML translation editor.
- Then the same setting is reverted to use the native editor.
- There is a user without administrator rights, that has switched the language via the admin language switcher from the back-end.
- This user attempts to edit a post in a secondary language.
As a workaround for this issue, follow this steps:
- Switch to the default language.
- Go to the original post.
- Use the pencil icon inside it to go to the translated post.
- Make your changes and save the translation.
Administrators are not affected by this issue, therefore, they can always translate posts.
