I am trying to: transfer my data to new site (theme and post type)

URL of (my) website where problem appears:

I expected to see: all of old data (which had successfully transfered)

Instead, I got: all disappeared.

We are testing a site for changing to new theme. but WPML doesn't get old translated data.

We have 1,000 data and it was translated (duplicated) well. however when we moved to new site (new theme). it all disappeared.

the new theme has different post-type.
(Our old post-type was "job-listing" and our new post-type is "item")
Therefore we have changed post type name to "item" from "job-listing" on my sql as update query.

1. it shows all of language post on "item" post-type.
2. when we activate WPML, we can see all item posts
All (1,000) | Published (999) | pending (1)
but there is English (0), Korean (0) now.

Please have a look at this screenshot ( hidden link )

How can we modify to match old translated data?

Thank you again,

Hello. I understand that you are asking how to assign the different posts to their respective translations after having manually changed the post type form "job-listing" to "item"

Here is documentation on the table architecure of WPML:

You will need to also change the table icl_translations - specifically changing field "elment_type" from "post_job_listing" to "post_item".

I hope this answers your question sufficiently to proceed with your work.
