Tell us what you are trying to do?
I can not find where and how to add a different social media link for example for Instagram to my website using the Salient Theme.
Is there any documentation that you are following?
I followed the documentation where you explained to activate the link Translate texts in admin screens, but than this is no where to find. I activated the String under salient_redux -> instagram-url -> Apply
But can't find it anywhere. It seems not to be saved.
Is there a similar example that we can see?

What is the link to your site?
hidden link

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. Could you please follow below steps and let me know how it goes?

1. In most cases a string is not fully enabled and this is due to too many options being saved at once on that page. To fix this issue, please increase MaxInputVars to 10000 or more. For this, please try to set this variable in your php.ini:

max_input_vars = 10000; = 10000;
suhosin.request.max_vars = 10000;

You may need to contact your hosting provider to set them.

- Please add this to the top of wp-config.php to increase WP memory:

/* WP Memory Limit */
define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M');
define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M' );

2. After increasing max_input_vars value you need to tick all the required strings from WPML >> String Translations >> (at the bottom of page) “Translate texts in admin screens” >> and click on “Apply” button.

3. Then please go to WPML >> String Translation and you will see newly enabled values at the top of the page and ready for translation, add the translation for those strings and check Translation is complete checkbox and press the Save button.

4. To check the minimum MaxInputVars value required to save the page, please follow this doc:

Thank you
