Problem: Copy published date to translation


WPML > Settings > Posts and pages synchronization. Select the option "Copy publishing date to translations" this would copy the published date to translation.

I am not sure if I overlook an option, but when I do the automatic translation of a post, the new post (with the translation) has the timestamp of the translation (and thus is posted on the top of all posts e.g. on a newspage). How can I set that the translatation keeps the date of the original post?

Hello Marian,

I think the option you are looking for is "Copy publishing date to translations" in WPML > Settings > Posts and pages synchronization. Selecting the option would copy the date to translation.

Let me know if that helps, Feel free to write back If you still have any issue.

Kind regards
