I'm installed WPML on a site yesterday. There were already some images on it. New images uploaded appear twice.

Problem: I have this banner saying that WPML needs to add languages to the images. However, when I click the button, I get a message: "Sorry, you are not allowed to access this page."

I am the designer of this site, so I have all the rights. What could be the problem?

well, this seems to have been solved, at some point the error message was not shown any longer, and the languages could be assigned to the media.

However, another problems persists (which I first thought might be cause by the initial issue).

I am using X and Cornerstone. Although I have the blog-version of WPML, three months ago I was able to manually translate the pages by duplicating the native language version, and translating it independently. Everything worked fine. Now, returning to further develop the site, it doesn't work anymore. Even though I separated the duplicated page by clicking on 'translate indepently', still all changes are shown on both pages. This was certainly not the case three months ago.

In those three months, both WPML and Cornerstone have been updated. Do you have any idea what might be causing this, and how it can be solved ?
