Elementor keeps loading when we have WPML enabled
It was necessary to increase the WP Memory limit by applying the following code to the wp-config.php file:

define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M');
define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M' );

Hey there,

I checked the error logs and found this: [01-Oct-2020 15:20:13 UTC] PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 32768 bytes)

This message usually indicates that you don't have enough memory on your WordPress install.

As WPML needs at least 256M to work smoothly and if your WordPress memory is bellow that mark, you may run into issues like this.

Therefore, it is advisable that you increase the memory limit to 256MB by adding this code to your wp-config.php, just before the line with “happy blogging” to check if this is just a performance problem in the backend:

define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M');
define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M' );

The wp-config.php file is located in your WordPress root directory. It's the same file where the database configuration settings are. You will have to access it by FTP or SFTP in order to edit it.

Please let me know if the issue persists after adding the code above so we can see about our next steps.

Thank you.
