When I search for Essences or perfume in the search selector on the right hand sidebar I get an error

Catchable fatal error: Object of class WP_Error could not be converted to string in /home/beautyci/public_html/wp-content/plugins/sitepress-multilingual-cms/sitepress.class.php on line 7697

This error does not seem to affect the other categories. Any idea why?

It is difficult to troubleshoot the error without more information. If it does not happen with other categories then the question is what is different with this particular category?

Before we get into that however, can you please confirm that you are using the latest versions of WPML and its active add-ons (if using any)?

You can check the latest released versions under "My Account -> Downloads" on this site. If you need to update, instructions to update can be found here: Only backup your database first before you proceed! You can use a plugin for this if you like such as:

Yes I am using the latest versions of WPML. There is no obvious difference in the category but there are several categories out of about 20 that are affected. It is weird.

I think the reason is that the Translated category pages somehow got deleted on a database cleanup. I have recreated them and the issue has gone. Thanks for the insight 🙂
