I would like to reduce the size of the icl_string_pages because of the 600000 records.
My site have less than 100 pages in 2 linguages
I'm using the new beta versions, and I have not the Recreate ST DB cache tables button.

Hello @gerardm-3, welcome to the WPML support Forum!

Please try the following:
- Rename the sitepress-multilingual-cms folder (on wp-content/plugins)
- Download the previous version of WPML here:
- Install on your website and run the "Recreate ST DB cache tables" option (on WPML > Support > Troubleshooting)
- after that, update WPML and WPML String Translator to the beta version

Please let me know if it worked for you.

All the best,

Thank you for your fast reply.
When I had renamed the folder of cms the site had a fatal error.
So I disabled and uninstalled the plugins cms-strings-management beta versions in WP and reinstalled earlier versions.
This time it was ok and I was able to recreate the database and solve my problem. Now I have 29000 lines.
Thank you
