During the creation of a post, leaving the editing page without saving, causes the draft to become hidden: that is, the draft is saved, but not shown when WPML is active.

Always saving the draft or publishing, will not cause the issue.

In case you already have a hidden draft, follow these steps:

  1. Go to WPML->Support.
  2. Click on Troubleshooting.
  3. Click the Set language information button.
  4. The hidden draft should now be available.
