I am trying to:
Translate a Gravity Form

I expected to be able to translate and save to 100%, but it stays stuck at 48% and doesn't want to save the rest.

Thank you for contacting WPML support.

You should increase the max_input_vars limit of your PHP. You can use php.ini or .htaccess if your host allows.

=> php.ini file

Open the php.ini file and insert/edit this line:

max_input_vars = 10000

hidden link

=> .htaccess file

php_value max_input_vars 10000

Let me know if that helps,

Hi, tried that, here is my ini file:
max_input_vars = 10000
upload_max_filesize = 1000M
post_max_size = 2000M
memory_limit = 3000M
file_uploads = On
max_execution_time = 180
register_globals = on

It didn't work...

Is it ok with you if I install the Duplicator plugin to get a clone of your site to run some tests locally?

Yes, sure

Thanks. I downloaded a copy of your site and ran some tests.
It's definitely the max_input_vars value. I ended up setting it up to 60000 to get the form to finally translate all. Give it a shot and let me know if it works.

Hi, changed it first to 60000 then to 100000 as you can see here: hidden link

But to no avail... What can I do, it still does not save the form more than 35%

Increase the memory limit to 256MB and let me know if it helps.
Apart from that, your PHP settings are pretty much the same as mine.

Increased Memory Limit to 256 🙂 Still doesn't work 🙁

Ricardo is off at this moment. I would like to take care of your ticket from now.

When I try to connect to the dashboard, "Internal Server Error" appears. I'll attach an image for you to see.

Also, by accessing the link you posted earlier (hidden link), I noticed that the memory is still as 128Mb (you can look for memory_limit).

Please, could you check this issue in the backend so I can check the problem? Your next answer will be private.

Thank you.

Thank you. Unfortunately, it looks like both the memory and the "max_input_vars" are not yet configured correctly.

When I access your site and click on the WPML > Settings, I see that you are still using the "max_input_vars" with the value of 1000 and the memory, with 40Mb. I'll attach an image for you to see. As I do not have access to FTP, I can not seem to try setting this up.

Please, could you try again to increase these limits and then check if these values have actually changed? After that, try translating the form again and see if the problem persists.

Thank you.

Hi, sorry, my bad, thought that having the php.ini in the root folder meant it would apply to all subfolders, but I moved it to wp-admin folder and then it worked. Thanks for the help!
