I have our own theme and try to make it works with wpml.

There is a problem with links on (custom post type) Listing page.

if the default post link is like this

for japanes, it should be like this..

But there is no /jp/ permalink on Listing page. just default link. But there is a footer widget on same page. the permalink works ok. there is /jp/ (another language link). the widget codes are from other theme (we just copied it to use quickly)

But it's still default language link (no /jp/) on Listing page.

Here is 2 codes. widget and Listing page. the permalink of widget works good but not Listing page.
used same <a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>....

Do I need to set up something for the permalink function for WPML? If so, is there any instruction?

===================== Widget codes (Works Good) =============================
function widget($args, $instance) {
$cache = wp_cache_get('widget_recent_jobs', 'widget');

if ( !is_array($cache) )
$cache = array();

if ( isset($cache[$args['widget_id']]) ) {
echo $cache[$args['widget_id']];


$title = apply_filters('widget_title', empty($instance['title']) ? __('New Job Listings', APP_TD) : $instance['title'], $instance, $this->id_base);
if ( !$number = (int) $instance['number'] )
$number = 10;
else if ( $number < 1 )
$number = 1;
else if ( $number > 15 )
$number = 15;

$r = new WP_Query(array('showposts' => $number, 'nopaging' => 0, 'post_status' => 'publish', 'post_type' => 'job_listing', 'ignore_sticky_posts' => 1));
if ($r->have_posts()) :
<?php echo $before_widget; ?>
<?php if ( $title ) echo $before_title . $title . $after_title; ?>

    <?php while ($r->have_posts()) : $r->the_post(); ?>

  • <a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" title="<?php echo esc_attr(get_the_title() ? get_the_title() : get_the_ID()); ?>"><?php if ( get_the_title() ) the_title(); else the_ID(); ?></a>
  • <?php endwhile; ?>

<?php echo $after_widget; ?>
// Reset the global $the_post as this query will have stomped on it


$cache[$args['widget_id']] = ob_get_flush();
wp_cache_set('widget_recent_jobs', $cache, 'widget');


=================== Listing page codes (Permalinks Not working for another language..

Dear jin woo,

Thank you for contacting to us !

Please review documents for the developers :

You should try something like this :

<?php echo get_permalink(icl_object_id($id, 'post', false)); ?>
