I am trying to: add ?lang=en to an existing page like hidden link

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: hidden link

I expected to see: the page in English

Instead, I got: Page not found

Welcome to WPML Support forum.

I noticed that the english translation for the page hidden link is hidden link

It seems that you would like to have the same slug for your english translation. So you're english url for that page would be hidden link

If that's the case, For the custom page/post to have the same slug, go to WPML > Settings > Translated documents options > and select "Translate (this will include the slug in the translation and not create it automatically from the title)"

After this option is saved now you can go to your secondary language post/page and within edit by the permalink you can click edit and edit the slug.

Does it help? Please let me know.

Kind regards,
