When I use Pagelines DMS to upload a image to a section in the secondary language site, the url has the language code (like '/en/') in it, so the image won't show.
WPML changes the home ([pl_site_url]) from yoursite.com ---> yoursite.com/en



ends up being:

 <im src="<em><u>hidden link</u></em>">

And the image does not exist there. It should be:

<im src="<em><u>hidden link</u></em>">

What is the logic in WPML, when does it show the home as the home and when as the home of this current language? How to fix this?
Do you have plans on working together with Pagelines if necessary?

Thank you!

Dear Jesse,

WPML converts the site_url, according to the active language, So it suffix the language code to site url.

I think you can strip out [pl_site_url] from [pl_site_url]/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/favorite.jpg and use absolute path.

A better way is this:

replace the "[pl_site_url]/" for "../"

Thanks rolandF.

Can you briefly explain why that works? Is it for child-pages so it goes one folder up to the root and won't try to load from for example example.com/childpage/wp-content/uploads but goes to example.com/wp-content/uploads ?

Then why do both
work on the homepage?

Dear Jesse,

Like I said in my previous reply, WPML converts the site_url, according to the active language, So it suffix the language code to site url.

So instead you can use absolute URL starting with "/", So it will prefix the site_url when image is attached.
