Hello,

Welcome to the WPML support forum. I will do my best to help you to resolve the issue.

Please let me know the steps to reproduce the redirection issue, I mean the following. Because not able to reproduce the issue exactly.

I have a problem with my sticky links which create redirection

We can turn back the sticky links to permalinks by clicking the *Start* button on the bottom of the WPML>>Sticky Links page. Please check the attached image for more details and try it only after a site backup.

I have a request. Please open a new ticket for the *Greek language* issue. Because as per our support policies, we can only handle one issue per ticket. You can assign the new ticket to me by mentioning my name in the description. It will help us to serve you better and we can avoid discussing multiple problems in one ticket. Also, it will help other users with similar problems find solutions when searching the forum. Thank you for your understanding.

Hello,

Thank you for the updates. I have a couple of doubts. Please let me know the following for a better understanding.

1) You have set the redirection based on Sticky links and it is showing 404 error now, right?

2) How you are managing the redirection, I mean the following screen? Sorry I am not able to find it exactly in your Dashboard.

Hello,

Thank you for the updates. Sticky links have limitations here. Because actually WPML Sticky links plugin is using for converting permalinks to sticky links and the other way around. Please check the following documentation for more details.

https://wpml.org/documentation/getting-started-guide/sticky-links/

Have you used any redirection plugin for this purpose like the following?

https://wordpress.org/plugins/redirection/

Sorry, I have little confusion about the current bug. Therefore it will be great if you can share screencast/video of the problem for a better understanding. It will help us a lot. You can share it via Google Drive or Dropbox.

Hi Bigul

I changed setting for the WordPress Memory
Then I check all the website with stick
The scan of the files block yet around 1200 files
I check all the permalinks by Sticky Links and I corrected some of them by the hand ... but I have everytime sticky links . You can see that the menu outils (Tools) / liens Cassés / broken Link on the wordpress menu. I just restart the check with broken links plug-in and already 32 broken links and on stick links no new permalink to change...

Thanks
