Hi, we are using the same slug for our native Spanish blog (/blog/) and English blog (/en/blog/). Suddenly, draft posts are showing up in the English blog, along with an empty 'Auto-Draft' blog for each draft post.

If we change the English blog slug to something different (ex. /en/english-blog/) this issue is resolved. This is confusing because I read that duplicate slugs are possible with WPML - .

Can you think of any reason this would be happening? We'd prefer not to change the URL of our English blog (if possible).

Hello Tushar,

Is your "blog" a page or a category? Do you have a link to your site which you could provide with your next reply?

Thank you for getting back to me. Thank you also for providing the two links.

The only blog post I see in the English version that is not there in the Spanish is this one "How Kind Is Your Beauty Routine?" second to last on the Blog page. Is that the draft post?

In any case, it would be good that you first update your WPML and WPML add-ons to their latest versions. Can you do this please?

You can check the latest released versions under "My Account -> Downloads" on this site. Instructions to update can be found here:

Let me know if the problem persists after the update.
