I am trying to: show the language selector on the spanish lanuage pages

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

I expected to see: The Spanish pages (other languages aren´t translated yet)

Instead, I got: The Spanish pages of the site without the language selector

Thank you for contacting WPML support. I'll be happy to help you with this.

Please try adding a language switcher into your footer or sidebar. Does that language switcher display correctly? Also, are you adding the language switcher via a widget or in a menu?

Hello Lauren,

The language selector work in the footer, but the customer want to have it in the topnavigation like at the homepage hidden link. As soon I switch to the Spanish language the selector dissapears.

I dicovered the header of the in Spanish translated pages is cached. There used to be a Facebook and email icon on the header position I placed the top navigation. In the header of the native language it´s the way I needs to be, but at the Spanish pages it´s still showing those icons. Does WPML create a kind of template for the pages or does it cache pages?
