I am trying to: Install WPML on existing website, built with the Avada Theme

URL of (my) website where problem appears: hidden link

After installation of WPML, I went to the Pages section, and see no pages are left in the list there ('Geen pagina's gevonden' = 'No pages found')
My 4 existing pages are indicated as published, but not as Dutch (Nederlands)...

I indicated during installation that all existing pages were in Dutch.
When I desactivate WPML, all goes back to normal.

Probably stupid beginners mistake? 🙂

Hello stevenD-5,

Thank you for contacting WPML Support,

**Before we proceed I recommend to please take FULL BACKUP of your database and your website.**
I often use the Duplicator plugin for this purpose See:

May i kindly ask you to please follow the steps bellow:

Please try to "Set language information"

Go to "WPML -> Support -> Troubleshooting -> Clean up"

Please do let me know if this worked for you

Thank you,

Hi Bobby,

The Duplicator link doesn't seem to work:
Whoops! We couldn't find that plugin.

You mean the MultiSite Clone Duplicator maybe?

Hello Steven,

It seems like that specific plugin might be going under a new update so its not accessible at the moment , but you can use the plugin you mentioned, as long as it will allow you to duplicate your site so we can eliminate any risks .

Thank you

Hello Bobby,

I managed to backup the entire website, and followed your instructions. But so far nothing changed, pages still don't show, and on the frontend all I get are 404 pages...

I found a solution in another thread:
