I am about to add 63 custom languages due to lots of lang-locale variations. As far as I have read this shouldn't be a problem for WPML. Somehow after 23 added languages I can't add anymore and I am receiving an "Please enter required data" error. I tried increasing the max input var but nothing changed.

could you help me out please?
Best, Josef

Hi Josef,

In order to debug this issue further quickly, would you be willing to provide me with temporary WordPress admin username so I could investigate the issue directly? I have marked your next reply private so you can safely add this information.

Please make a full backup of your site before sharing this info!

You can use plugins such as UpdraftPlus WordPress Backup Plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/updraftplus/) or ask your host to perform a site backup.

Regards,

Hi,

I tried increasing the max input var but nothing changed.

This might be the case - when I try to save a test language, I can see that some fields are cleared in the end, so the JavaScript does not take them all, hence causing "Please, enter required data."

Can you try increasing Max input vars to something like 3000? It is currently set to 1000 - you can see this here:

Perhaps whatever you did to change this did not take effect, so you may want to reach hosting support to assist with this. Also, please activate Multibyte String extension as you will need it for String Translation (if you will use it).
