I am trying to fix an error that appeared on my Google Search Console for my website that seems to be caused by the WPML plugin.

I updated the plugin and I had hoped that either the registration would have fixed it or the update to that plugin would have. Unfortunately, it still looks to be an issue and it is directly tied the WPML plugins. If that plugin is deactivated, the tag pages in question (such as hidden link) work. When activated, it does not work and the debug logs show the following error, which points to the WPML plugin:

[26-Sep-2019 20:21:37 UTC] PHP Recoverable fatal error: Object of class WP_Error could not be converted to string in /home/smartlk8/public_html/wp-content/plugins/sitepress-multilingual-cms/classes/seo/class-wpml-seo-headlangs.php on line 56
