Thank you for contacting us.

To use advanced search with URL format as arguments "?lang=ar", you would need to follow the steps in our documentation to have the language set at the time of the search:

That is, by following the steps of our documentation, a field would be added on the form to keep the current language and search properly according to the language.

Another option would be to use the URL format per directory: That way the search would work correctly.

To do this, follow the steps below:

- Click on the WPML > Languages > Language URL format
- Select the "Different languages in directories"
- Click on the "Save" button

Remember to clear your site's cache for testing on the front end. Please, let me know if I can help with any other questions you may have about it. I'll be happy to help.

Thank you.
