I am trying to: set the language of some old text from English to Serbian (the texts were writen in Serbian before I installed WPML and I need to set them to be in Serbian so they appear in the Serbian version of the site)

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:

I expected to see: the number of shares on Facebook from the original text

Instead, I got: the same text but without shares, as if its a completly new text

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

In the WPML -> Languages section, what URL structure are you using? I'm wondering if this could have changed if the URL structure of the page changed.

Instead of changing the page language, what if you leave the page as it was and create a new page in Serbian, and then link the translations? Then does the Facebook share number stay the same?

The topic ‘[Closed] Number of shares on Facebook disappear after changing the language’ is closed to new replies.
