Hi,

Im using WP AMP (hidden link) to serve AMP results. This works fine with WPML but I have one problem. In Google Search Console I get the following error; AMP URL is self-canonical AMP. After having a look I noticed this only occurs at translations. After checking the header I found out the canonical is pointed differently in AMP translations then in the original language and I think this causes the problem. For example;;

The canonical for this page; hidden link is hidden link. Which is correct.

But when you look at the Swedish translation hidden link you will see the following canonical; hidden link. Which is not good.

Can you have a look at make sure the canonical for translated AMP posts is not a AMP post but the regular post?

Best regards,

Dave

Hi Shekhar,

I would like to add that WP AMP isn't compatible with WPML anymore. It used to work fine untill Version 4.0.5 but since then it is broke. When you simply navigate to a AMP page it will redirect you to the regular post.

Best regards,

Dave

Hi Shekhar,

I have updated WPML to the newest version and made the change, now both plugins work again which is perfect. Sadly I still have the problem that the translated AMP page has a canonical which points at itsself. How should i fix this?

Best regards,

Dave

Hello there,

I can replicate the issue, I have forward the details to our Themes & Plugins Compatibility Team and they will contact the author. Please note that this process may take a while as it depends on how soon the author will reply to our efforts to contact him.

It would be great if you can also contact the author asking him to reply to us. You could also refer them to our Go Global program so that we can help them make their theme compatible with WPML. https://wpml.org/documentation/theme-compatibility/go-global-program/ This may help expedite the process.

We are closing the ticket but we will keep it in our records. You will be notified the moment we have the author’s cooperation in this process.

Thanks
