I am trying to translate the homepage. On the sidebar there are list of blogs.
When I used the default language which is english the blog links works fine.
But when I translate it to french the blog on the sidebar, the links doesnt work. Instead all links look like this hidden link
Can you please help me sort this out.
Thanks.

Hello,

If possible please verify with me that the blogs are fully transalted to French , as if they are not this can cause issues with the link.

for example this blog hidden link

if you can confirm that they are 100% translated , let me know your results with a minimal environment

-Back up your site first
-Deactivate all non WPML related plugins
-Switch for a moment to a WordPress default theme like Twenty Fourteen.
-If the issue is gone, activate one by one to see with wich one there is an interaction issue

I tried translating the links that you gave as example. But it does not translate instead it redirects me to the homepage.

Hello,

In the backend is the post i provided fully translated ?

when you access the translation you should be able to see the status at 100% translation.

you mentioned that you are redirected to the default language , does this happen when you access it in the backend to add the translation ?
