Hi and thank you for your great plugin!
After a server relocation where I had to delete WMPL and the databases I have everything online now, but the old connection between the original post and the translated post is gone.
As it is only one post I translated so far, it's not a big deal. But it would be nice if you can help me be getting the 1:1 connection done again. Hopefully it's just a connection in the post meta table.
Can you please provide me with some insights? Thanks in advance.
Best wishes, Stefan
P.S.: yes, I know sql 😉
