Overview of the issue

In certain situations, there is a discrepancy in how calendar link translations are handled in The Events Calendar (TEC) plugin when used with WPML. Instead of displaying the expected translated term, the date link incorrectly appears as (/?:month|monat|miesic|….), for example.

Workaround

Please, make sure of having a full backup of your site before proceeding.

  • Go to Users > Your profile and set your default language as User language.
  • Go to Settings > Permalinks and re-save. Sometimes this action solves the issue.
  • If it is not the case, add the following code to your functions.php file:
    /*
    *  WPML Workaround for compsupp-6815
    */
    add_filter( 'tribe_rewrite_canonical_url', 'wpml_compsupp6815_resolve_missing_urls', 10, 3 );
    
    function wpml_compsupp6815_resolve_missing_urls( $resolved, $url, $object ) {
    
    	if ( class_exists('Sitepress') ) {
    		$wpml_default_lang = apply_filters('wpml_default_language', NULL );
    		$wpml_current_lang = apply_filters( 'wpml_current_language', NULL );
    		
    		// Let's register the calendar strings so we can translate and use in the workaround
    		if ($wpml_default_lang == $wpml_current_lang ) {
    			
    			$events_slug = $tec_options['eventsSlug'];	
    			$single_events_slug = $tec_options['singleEventSlug']; 
    			$tec_options = get_option('tribe_events_calendar_options');
    					
    			do_action( 'wpml_register_single_string', 'the-events-calendar', 'TEC Calendar Slugs: '.substr($events_slug, 0, 20), $events_slug);
    			do_action( 'wpml_register_single_string', 'the-events-calendar', 'TEC Calendar Slugs: '.substr($single_events_slug, 0, 20), $single_events_slug );
    			
    			foreach ($tec_options['tribeEnableViews'] as $calendar_string) {
    				do_action( 'wpml_register_single_string', 'the-events-calendar', 'TEC Calendar Slugs: '.substr($calendar_string, 0, 20), $calendar_string);
    			}
    		}
    
    		// Check if the URL is not resolved yet. If not, we will resolve it with the translated strings
    		if ( preg_match( '#/(/?:.+)#',  $resolved ) ) {
    
    			$resolved = preg_replace_callback( '#/(/?:.+?)#', function($matches) use ($url) {
    				$options = explode('|', trim($matches[0], '/(?:)'));
    				
    				$slug = $options[0];					
    
    				$translated_slug = apply_filters('wpml_translate_single_string', $slug , 'the-events-calendar', 'TEC Calendar Slugs: '.substr($slug, 0, 20) );
    
    				// Only apply the translation if the string already exists in the URL. If not, replace with the original. This may avoid possible 404 errors
    				if (in_array(strtolower($translated_slug), $options) && $translated_slug != '') {
    					$slug = $translated_slug;
    				} 
    
    				return '/' . $slug;
    
    			}, $resolved );
    			
    		}
    	}
    
        return $resolved;
    }
    
  • Go to Settings > Permalinks and re-save again.
  • After that, check how the permalinks work on the front-end for every language.
  • If the issue remains, you may still have some untranslated strings. In that case, go to WPML > String Translation and translate the strings with the the-events-calendar textdomain and TEC Calendar Slugs: **** name.
