Reported for: WPML Multilingual CMS 4.4.8

Overview of the issue

You might have problem visualizing the contents of a Visual tab in the Classic Translation Editor.

This was introduced by the WordPress 5.6 and it will be fixed in WordPress core:


We have currently 3 possible workarounds:

  1. You can use Advanced Translation Editor.
  2. Alternatively, you can also install the Enable jQuery Migrate Helper plugin.
  3. Finally, you can click the Text tab and then return back to Visual tab in the Classic Translation Editor interface

  1. Going back and forth from Text to Visual does not work. For anyone having this issue, there is an easy short term fix until the developers get the upcoming release out. You simply need to install and activate Enable jQuery Migrate Helper plugin. This solves the problem by reverting to a depricated JQuery Migrate for plugins like WPML that are not written for the updated version that came with the WP 5.6 update. Bests!

    • Hello there,

      Thank you for sharing this workaround, however it may be caused by an issue from a previous WordPress update.
      We are working on it.

      Thank you for your understanding.

  2. Hello,

    I’ve installed and activated the Enable jQuery Migrate Helper Plugin on my site. And I checked again the page to translate my homepage, I still don’t see the fields to translate medias. Do I have to modify something else ?

    Regards, Jeremy

    • Hello Jeremy, what was the issue?
      I’m going to install the plugin now.
      It’s weird because it doesn’t happen in every page or product, the visual tab sometimes works, sometimes doesn’t…

  3. Thank you very much, you have solved the problem momentarily, I hope they will correct it in the next update

    Thank you very much great job.
