I am trying to: have the original layout of the page

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: hidden link

I expected to see: hidden link

Instead, I got: only texts

Issue : may be the Blueprint Editor ( Bateaux Theme ) causes the issue.

Thanks for sending the files. I was able to recreate the issue on the local copy of your site and was able to edit the content following these steps:

1. Delete the English translation of the homepage and remove it from the trash
2. Duplicate the page to English (check the box to duplicate instead of using the "+" sign
3. Disable the WPML translation editor and edit the content manually. You will need to click "Translate Independently".

I think that the page builder you are using may not be completely compatible with WPML. I am going to test in a fresh install as well, but could you please let me know if these steps work on your live site?

When you edit the homepage in the original language, you will see an option to disable the WPML Translation editor. Switch that option to Off. You will also get a pop up asking if you want to disable it for just this page, or all pages. I suggest all pages for your site.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance and I will be happy to help.

My name is Carlos and I will be taking this ticket from now long because our colleague Lauren is on vacations.

I would like to request temporary access (wp-admin and FTP) to your site to take better look at the issue. You will find the needed fields for this below the comment area when you log in to leave your next reply. The information you will enter is private which means only you and I can see and have access to it.

Our Debugging Procedures

I will be checking various settings in the backend to see if the issue can be resolved. Although I won't be making changes that affect the live site, it is still good practice to backup the site before providing us access. In the event that we do need to debug the site further, I will duplicate the site and work in a separate, local development environment to avoid affecting the live site.
