I am trying to: Using Elementor, I have the post widget. I set in to 10 posts per page (same as in WP Settings - writing) and add pagination, since I have 42 posts. In Elementor, on hover over numbers or Next, you can see the URL as hidden link /3/ etc.
but live, on hover it has no number, just shows hidden link for all numbers and redirects to original page. Cannot get to other pages.

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: hidden link

I expected to see: when i click on a number, go to page 2

Instead, I got: stay on same page

I see that elementor uses WPML tm-mcs-pagination.twig file, I do not know why.

I tried:
- Switching to Translatable - only show translated items: no difference
- Changing permalinks: no difference
- Changing language by folder: no difference
- Deactivation WPML Translation management: no difference
I also updated all plugins to latest: no difference

If you read the first point, it says that I did try it:
- Switching to Translatable - only show translated items: no difference

For people looking for a simple answer:
you cannot use the Posts widget on a normal page, it won't work.
You have to create an archive page, an use the archive widget, it is the only way of makling the pagintion work, which in my opinion is a bug.

Hello Mylene,

I am sorry that I missed that at first place.

To debug this issue further, I would need to check your site settings once, for this I would need temporary access (wp-admin and ftp) to your site.

So could you please provide me those details, you will find the needed fields for this below the comment area when you log in to leave your next reply.
