Same problem here with the b3 release.
Base language (Dutch) products are not showing:
hidden link
Switching the language on any English product brings up a 404.

Problems not solved with b3, site is still reverting to the default language site. I use multi-domain in WPML and everything over https.

I would like to add, that any lost connections between translations and their sources will not be fixed by the new versions. The data was corrupted. The fixed versions just stop corrupting your existing posts if you go to edit them, and any new ones going forward.

I was not able to fix my corrupted posts by using the WPML tools. I had to go in manually and fix this in the DB.

For example. When I go to edit a Chinese post that use to be connected to an English post, the UI section that allows you to make the assocation, by picking the English post from the dropdown, was not visible for me. There was no way to associate the post with the source, other than creating a new post from scratch and doing the association there, and then copying in your text to the new post. I did not want to do this, so I had to do a series of DB modifications to fix all this up.

Someone from support, please correct me if I am wrong.

We're not going to leave anyone hanging. We can help you fix your sites, both using WordPress GUI and using direct DB edits. It's our fault and we want to fix it for you.

If you want us to help, please let me know and we'll get a developer on your site ASAP. He will work with your instructions until everything is back to normal.

Many thanks to the WPML crew and in specific Andrea Sciamanna. He fixed my problems that were assigned to him.

I'm sorry but I lost track a bit with the different postings...

So shall I apply the beta4 release and see if it fixes my issues and if not, open a ticket for help? Or wait for the official new release?

Many thanks,

Hi, I didn't saw this thread... 🙁 it's too late...
So on my website I lost some connections. The main language is italian, and it works fine with it, but by using another language the products on the pages disappear. Can you help me please??

Hi Amir,
You said that if we needed any help because of the upgrade to 3.1.3, to let you know in this I'm sorry in advance if I repeat myself or a thread -
I would really need your help as the version did not work well for me. I reverted to 3.0.2 but it seems something is wrong with my WP install as I now have problems that I did not have before the upgrade to 3.1.3.

I had open a tread here:

I would appreciate any help possible. Thanks

I'm running the 3.1.3. version and have problems with lost translations conections. I have not down loaded any beta versions yet as there seemed to be troubles with them as well. As I'm not a "techie", I was kind of hoping to wait this one out, but it is becoming a big problem. If some one could contact me with guidance it would be greatly apprciated.

Kind regards

I tried each B release, but the connections between translations are still lost...
Lots of problem here.
For example, in the wordpress admin i have a page showing no translation at all, but on the front end translation are still linked.

Do you think connections are definitely lost or i have chance to connect them again ?

February 20, 2014 at 1:56 pm #344216


Thibaut, previous versions had a bug which caused translation connections to be lost. It's supposed to be fixed in the recent version (beta 4).

Translations who got disconnected need to be re-connected manually. We can help you do that on your site or do it for you (with login details).

The new version should not lose more translation connections.

Are you seeing new connections being lost, or the ones that were disconnected before, remaining disconnected?
