Tell us what you are trying to do?
I installed WPML and set the site language to german (it was in english as a standard). After that I changed the url names (because there was a notification with a link). After I did this I got an 404 Error message and I could not see my pages anymore. I wanted to search them in the pages tab, however, they were not there anymore. I did not delete them.
In the database they are available.
Now actually my whole site content is lost after installing WPML and setting the language - how can I restore the lost pages?
It is a wordpress multisite

What is the link to your site?
