I am trying to: edit english version of main page (which I did a few times with a success, and a few times with the same error - then helped me closing browser window), and get an error: "The preview could not load. This is most often related to a plugin conflict or aggressive page cacheing. Checking the developer console for errors could indicate what went wrong.
Origin URL: hidden link
Preview URL: hidden link". I can edit a polish version with no errors...

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: only in Cornerstone panel

I expected to see: a page, which I can edit

Instead, I got: an error message

Thank you for contacting WPML support.
I will do my best to help you solve this issue.

I would like to ask you to follow this steps in order to isolate the cause of the issue:
- Back up your site first before making any change, this is for security reasons.
- Clear all sort of caches in your site, plugin cache (if any) / CDN cache (if any) / browser cache and then see if it resolves the issue afterwards.

If the issue persists then:
- Deactivate all the plugins that are not related to WPML.
- Switch for a moment to a WordPress default theme like Twenty Seventeen.
- If the issue is gone, activate one by one to see with which one there is an interaction issue.

Could you tell me the result of this steps?

Kind regards,
