Hello @erminiaf-2, welcome to the WPML support Forum!

Have you translated the portfolio slug? If so, how was it done?

Please go to Settings > Permalinks, set it as "simple" and save. After that, switch back to the previous structure and save again.

To ensure the quickest and most accurate support, please provide your debug information so that I can get a look at some of your configurations. We have an excellent article on how to located here:
NOTE: Please be sure to check the box to indicate you can provide debug info and paste your debug info in the debug field provided, and NOT in the general response field.

Please let me know if it worked for you.

All the best,

Hi Diego,
I translated the slug into Avada's options, but I was always a 404.
Do I have to translate it into the WPML settings?? (see image).

In the reply there is no field to insert the debugging text....

Hello there,

As Diego is not available I would like to take care of your case.

Yes, you need to translate your portfolio slug from that section on your WPML settings. After that, don't hesitate to resave your permalinks.

Does it help?

Dear Andrés,
I translated the slug and saved the permalinks, but neither Italian nor English worked.
To reset everything, I set the slug of the first language from the Avada options.

In that case, let's check that everything is working as expected:

1. Could you please upgrade all your WPML package?

2. Could you please check that your Avada theme is up to date 5.7:
hidden link

3. If you disable Redirection plugin, the issue is still present?

1./2. I can't do this because I can't upgrade Avada Theme (who built this site didn't create a child theme...)
3. If I disable Redirection plugin, the issue is the same.

Should I redo the website from scratch ?! the situation is embarrassing ...

If the problem comes from your Avada theme, there is nothing I can do as we need to work with the latest version of themes and plugins.

However, why is not possible to upgrade your WPML package?

October 12, 2018 at 2:51 pm #2812357


I contacted the Avada' support and told me that depends on the WPML plugin. The current version of the theme does not support the new version of WPML.
As I see in the forum, this problem is not just mine ...

Thanks for the new info. But could you please upgrade your WPML package?
Otherwise we can't continue.
