This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

Problem: When the product page is accessed, shows 404 error, page not found.

Solution: If this is only happening in some old products, you should remove the variations and add them again.

To do this, go to the product that is not working properly and follow the steps below:

- Look at the "Product Data" box - Click on the "Variations" tab - Remove the variations - Insert the variations again - Click on the "Save changes" button - Update the product page by clicking on the "Update" button

I am using Woocommerce with WPML. All of the product pages seems to working fine but when I add variations to any product the "English" version of the product stops working and leads to a "Page not found page".


Dutch (Working): hidden link
English (Not working):

Strangely, the permalink of that particular page changes to Plain WordPress permalink when I open it. So I tried changed the slug of that page only (not the translation) and it started working again.

The problem seems to be in the slugs. So I think when adding variations, products of same slugs don't work ..

Waiting for the response ..

Hi Guido,

I noticed that you're using an older version of WPML plugins and WooCommerce Multilingual.

The new version, 3.3.7, was released. Please could you update the WPML and the other WPML plugins, including the WooCommerce Multilingual? If you have registered your site, you can update from the WordPress dashboard.

If not, please, log into your client area and download the latest version ( ). Then follow the steps that are in our video: hidden link

*** Please make a full backup of your site before upgrading WPML.

Please let me know if that resolves the problem.

Thank you.

Hello Bruno,

The problem is solved.

Just for future references:
The product variations were not translated from "Woocommerce Multilingual" at first, I translated them, but the product was still not working. Before giving details I tried creating a test product with variations myself and turns out it was working fine. So I simply deleted the old product which was not working and added a new one as same as before and its working now ..

Thanks ..
