Hi Bruno, You tested uploading a new image and it worked (the waterfall), and I can confirm it works as well. How did you get that one to work? And how do we get old images to work? Is there a migration tool or settings based on what you know about the issue?

I disabled MLFP so you can see that it's not that plugin or a compatibility issue with that plugin. Forget that MLFP was part of the site.

I basically tested uploading the image in the secondary language.

I believe that the images that were changed from the default directory should not be displayed because WPML cannot find them (so I commented on the compatibility issue).

Without any plugin to change the directory of the images, this should work correctly, as the upload of the images will be done in the default directory of WordPress.

If you try to upload the image now that "Media Library Folders Pro" is disabled (and the default upload directory will be used), this should work correctly.

In order for the image to be synchronized with other languages, you must either synchronize or activate the options so that the image is synchronized once the upload is done (WPML > Settings > Media Translation - at the end of the page > How to handle media for new content).

Thank you.

Ok that makes sense. Thanks!

Hi Bruno,

I tried disabling MLFP. Then I upgraded WPML and our Media Library no longer works.

The browser says:

This page isn’t working is currently unable to handle this request.

When I disable WPML the page loads, but no images appear. It appears as though the upgrade and making images available for translations breaks the site. There are over 3,000 images so it takes a long time to migrate.

Can you advise?
