This is the technical support forum for WPML - the multilingual WordPress plugin.

Everyone can read, but only WPML clients can post here. WPML team is replying on the forum 6 days per week, 22 hours per day.

This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

Problem: I am getting this error:

We have detected a problem with some tables in the database. Please contact WPML support to get this fixed.

Solution: If you have WPML v4.0.7 or earlier, it is safe to just dismiss that notice as it could be a one-time event due to updates, all will be fine for WPML then. We had a similar issue before but it was handled already in the current version. You are seeing this error since you are just upgrading from the old version (which produced that error) to the new one.

Incase you can’t dismiss this notice, you can solve it by removing the empty value from your database table "wp_icl_strings" using database tool like PHPMyAdmin or similar. Before doing that please Backup your database and website for safety.

I am trying to:

When I login, I see the Warning:

We have detected a problem with some tables in the database. Please contact WPML support to get this fixed.

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:

It's in the backend

I expected to see:

No Warning

Instead, I got:

Hi Felix,

I am Noman from WPML Support, I have taken a look on this issue. In your case it is safe to just dismiss that notice as it could be a one-time event due to updates, all will be fine for WPML then. We had a similar issue before but it was handled already in the current version. You are seeing this error since you are just upgrading from the old version (which produced that error) to the new one.

Incase you can’t dismiss this notice, you can solve it by removing the empty value from your database table "wp_icl_strings" using database tool like PHPMyAdmin or similar. Before doing that please Backup your database and website for safety.

Please let me know if you need further help with this. Thank you
