I have installed WPML on a WordPress + Buddypress installation.
I have an english front page, which has a french translation, and the language selector is not working on the front page (it's showing but we can't click on it to switch), whereas it's working fine on other pages.
The language selector is not working on my blog page too, but only on the french version of my blog (not on the english version).
To finish, the french version of the blog is displaying all the posts : french, english and also drafts ! The english version is working fine.
Is there a way to fix these two bugs ?

Hello Brooks,
Thanks for your quick reply. Here is the URL: hidden link
As you can see, the language selector is running on certain pages, and not on others pages.
And the french blog ( hidden link ) is launching all the posts from all languages and even drafts.
We are using :
WPML : 2.4.1
BuddyPress Multilingual : 1.2.1

Hi Mona,
I've checked the draft issue because I use BuddyPress too, and meet the same.
About draft page
my draft page is hidden link
in the menu, the link was hidden link
a temporary solution is to remove the page of the menu
but the plugin break the protection to draft pages ;-/
Brooks have an admin access to my blog,
I hope they will find a solution soon :-/

Happy that the problem has been solved for Laurent. Unfortunately, I'm still have small problems with the WPML add-on for Buddypress:
- The language selector isn't providing alternative flags on my homepage.
- The avatar cropping function is working only on english version of the site, not on others (french, etc...).
- The english flag from the language selector is linking to wrong links on Buddypress profiles ( rather than
My WPML parameters are :
english ->
french ->
It would be very sweet if these bugs could be solved because my users can't enjoy the fantastic WPML plugin...
