Hi,

I have a Woocommerce + WPML site. Activating Woocommerce Multilingual force me to activate WPML Media.

So, when I upload an image, this image is multiplied by the number of languages I have active. 4 in my case.

I find it very annoying, and I want to disable it. I don't want to have my images multiplied by 4. I want the media library works as a site without the plugin WPML Media.

The problem is that I cannot deactivate it, because then the slugs in the products from Woocommerce don't work.

How can I do that? Is it really necessary to have Woocommerce Multilingual and WPML Media activated?

Thanks.

Dear Daniel,

WPML Media and WooCommerce Multilingual is interlinked. In the case image duplication, WPML media is only creating extra DB entry for Image in non default languages. It will not create more files in wp-content/upload folder.

And WPML Media plug-in allows you to translate the image captions and titles.

Hi Bigul,

"is only creating extra DB entry". This means more DB queries (or more complex ones), and poor performance.

1.- Isn't there a way to disable it?
2.- What are the minimum plugins (related to WPML) needed to run a Woocommerce multilingual site?

Thanks.

Dear Daniel,

It will not make your system slow. It has implemented for the easy management of media files(Including Product images) in translated contents.

WPML Media is mandatory for WooCommerce Multilingual. Otherwise it will not work smoothly.

Dear Daniel,

WooCommerce, WPML, WPML Media plugin, WPML Translation Management and WPML String Translation are mandatory for the working of WooCommerce Multilingual.

Hi,

I have the same problem but I cannot solve it.
I have a Woocommerce + WPML site (www.fleye.photography).

When I upload an image, this image is multiplied around 100 times in my case.

I find it very annoying, and I want to disable it. I don't want to have my images multiplied by 100.
I want the media library works as a site.

How can I do that?
Many thanks for you help

Pierre
