Template is working perfect with WPML (Conversion theme) yet i'm noticing some strange behaviour in footer.

In WPML admin I added strings that are in admin screen (basicaly part of theme options, what to show in footer). Strings were not in theme translation before.

Now they show up nice in Strings translation, i can click on Translation, field for all languages open up with default text (default as entered in Theme Options for footer). I entered a link i.e. hidden link, save it and on my it shows hidden link

For all languages ..

Am I missing something?

Thank you

Thank you for contacting us.

Have you tried to disable the non-WPML plugins to see if the problem persists?

Also, are you using any plugin cache? If so, you've cleared the cache of your site to see if the link will be displayed properly?

Please, what is the version of WPML and WP are you using? I would like to know more about your installation. Can you please provide your WPML Debug information in the debug field below?

Thank you.

Also directories work .. i.e.

This seems correct as you are using the "WPML Sticky Links" plugin. You can see more about this plugin in our documentation: The language links are not converted into ID, there is a translation?

Also, I did not see the problem in the screenshot you posted. It seems that both links are added. I will attach a picture for you to see.

Thank you.

Yes they are saved, but on frontpage they are shown with page id (deafult languge) in url .. not permalink
