Hi,

Thank you for contacting WPML support!

Can you provide more information on which page is it? Has it been published as translation or is only draft?

I will need more information in order to help you.

Regards,
Bruno Kos

The site is published with translation. I've done the site in Elementor PRO. For now, I tried to make the homepage a try. The main language of Poland and the second English are added. On the menu I made a flag icon but the second version does not develop to click.

Hi,

Is the problem that you've created a language switcher, which does not appear within the main menu?

Also, in order to debug this issue further quickly, would you be willing to provide me with temporary WordPress admin username so I could investigate the issue directly? I have marked your next reply private so you can safely add this information.

Please make a full backup of your site before sharing this information.

Hi,

It looks like that you don't have any translations yet, that's why the switcher in another language is not showing.
angielski (0) | polski (49) | Wszystkie języki (49)

Please see attached image and the link below:

Hi,

It appears that you still don't have any translations (but there are some drafts - Szkice (10)) and these aren't visible to WPML and hence not reachable through language switchers.

Have you checked our guide on how to start with translations?

Hi,

You have to complete translation - have a look at this site.
hidden link

This is where you can see if you have completed a translation. Currently, there are only Polish pages and the language switcher will not work if no translations are available for the page.

Please see tutorials listed here:

Hi,

You will need to translate all Elementor layouts (also sidebars if using them and different templates)
https://wpml.org/documentation/plugins-compatibility/elementor/

As for menus, you will need to synchronize menus:
https://wpml.org/documentation/getting-started-guide/translating-menus/

I suggest you try going through all the documentation we have in our disposal:

Only sidebars get content from posts. So, only after the posts have been translated, will the English versions be introduced there?
