Awesome Thank you that went fast!

However, there are now a couple of issues that have arisen.

1. When clicking to view the homepage in Swedish, a sidebar has appeared on the right-hand side, including a search bar, recent comments, archives etc. This messes up the layout of the page completely.

2. The menu does not work on mobile. It has become transparent.

Could you have a look at this?

Thank you in advance again,

Edward

Hello,

1. This is happening because of the page's styling.

you have a custom layout.

if you go to edit the page then use the language switcher in the top to switch to the Swedish language you can see at the bottom right that the layout is different.

i have changed it to the same as the default page and its ok now.

2. For the menu. It looks like the styling of your mobile menu is white, therefore with your white background its not going to look OK.

This seems like a theme option and styling issue rather than something that WPML is causing.

Thank you, I understood what you meant about the custom layout issue. I believe I have it under control now.

2. For the menu on mobile. Before I installed WPML, the menu had a blue background so it showed up fine on mobile. It was after I installed WPML, that the problem with menu becoming transparent became a problem. That is why I believe this to be a WPML issue... What can be done to fix this?

Thank you again! 🙂

I would like to take a closer look if possible

Best way to determine if WPML is causing this would be to deactivate WPML plugin temporary and then test the mobile switcher.(Your WPML work will not be lost by doing this)

let me know your results .

Also is there an option to customize the way the menu look from within the theme options ?

**Before we proceed I recommend to please take FULL BACKUP of your database and your website.**
I often use the Duplicator plugin for this purpose See: http://wordpress.org/plugins/duplicator/

I would like to request temporary access (wp-admin and FTP) to your site

Thank you !

I have test this with deactivating WPML and the mobile menu drop down still remains with a transparent background.

The transparency for your mobile menu is due to your custom CSS that has been added.

Once commented out i could see the background colors for the dropdown menu.

#site-navigation {
background-color:transparent;
}

.page-title, .entry-title {
font-size: 3.0rem;
font-family: Montserrat, sans-serif !important;
}

Allright I see what the problem is. As you said, it did not have anything to do with WPML.

Anyways, I appreciate your help Bobby, Thank you!
