I;m trying to translate my site, but it's quite hard.
I'm able to translate some widgets to english and then again to polish - but some of them are not even displaying on english.

Mostly I got problems with widgets like "My Advanced Cycle".
See: home page (no widget below "From project to effect" text.)

Dear Krzysztof,

This is how widgets are normally translated:

1. If you are using the WordPress default widgets you will be able to translate both the title and content under the "WPML -> String Translation" screen

2. If you are using custom widgets which are coded correctly and use apply_filters on widget_title and widget_text then again you should be able to translate both the title and content under the "WPML ->
String Translation" screen.

Note: If you are coding your own widgets see: Texts in widgets needs to go through 'apply_filters':

3. Sometimes the above options are not enough. In this case you may want to look into using Widget Logic see:

Ok. I'll take a look into my widget titles.
But how about photos? As I said and you can see, when they are in code or feature image they are fine. But when they come from widget they are lost.

Also to do not make new topic, I got problemy with my front page.
When I try it on my second pc and in private mode I got 404 error. Even if I did my polish and english translations.

Wierd thing is when I login to my admin page, I see front page working well.

This is to be fixed asap. Most important.

Sorry for delayed reply, but I wasn't notified by email.

Hope you'll know how to help me.

Add to my issue:
Polish (default one) is not working, ENglish is working fine (if you do now count few images lost).
