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: After updating the post status in the default language, this does not sync in the secondary language.
Solution: At the moment, unfortunately, this is not possible. This is how WPML works at this moment. After setting the status, you can not edit through the original content. Our team is aware of this feature request.
As a workaround, you can use the language selector on the top bar to switch to the secondary language. After that, you can edit the status of the secondary language just as you do with the status of the original post.
