I am trying to: Change how to translate strings in the theme and plugins. When I change to "Translate the theme and plugins using WPML's String Translation" and click "Save", the page reloads and nothing happens.

URL of (my) website where problem appears: hidden link

I expected to see: I expect the page saves my option.

Instead, I got: I get a PHP error on the debug log: PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 71 bytes) in /home/therightsfactory/www/wp-content/plugins/wpml-string-translation/inc/potx.php on line 148

I've tried to allocate more Memory on wp_config file, to remove all others plugins and to activate the default theme. Nothing works.

Hello Cristina,

Thank you for contacting WPML support forum,

It seems that it's a server configurations issue. Because you already have put your hands on the problem and did the proper step.

But from the debug information you provided, The memory limit is 128 which is too little, I suggest you to contact you server support and ask them to increase memory limit to 500M.

Please follow up with the thread if you still have the problem after increasing the memory limit.
