Hello,
how can I remove the "refresh duplication" icon of a post? I translated this article from English to German but originally duplicating the content. But how can I "unlink" this duplication feature now?
Thank you!

Hello Wolfgang,

Welcome to WPML support forum.

That icon does not mean that your translation is a duplicated, what it means is that you may need to refresh your translation. Let's imagine that you have modified your original page, you added a new paragraph or you edited some content, thus, your translation needs to be updated as well.

For answering to your question, to make your duplicated page independent, go to your translation and edit it. At the moment you do it, an alert will pop up warning you that your duplicated page will become independent.

If that alert does not pop-up, it means that your translation is already independent.

Best regards,
Andrés

Hello Andrés, thanks for your quick response. That's the behavior that I thought would happen, but for some reason, it doesn't seem to. I did make the translation but the button still remains. Attached is what shows up in WordPress.

Perfect! According to your screenshot, your page is already independent and seems to be working fine.

Would you please explain me the issue in case I haven't understand it correctly?

Maybe it's nothing but I was wondering why the refresh icon instead of the edit/pen icons is still shown in my posts. See my first screenshot.

I may be a cache issue as on your second screenshot appears as a pencil. 🙂

We'll it's still a refresh icon in the post list view but it doesn't seem to be an issue. Thanks!
