Hi,

When i translate a recipe, links that are in the recipe remain the french ones. How can I make sure the link is automatically the english one when available?

Ex: go here and click on the link on the word ''here'' under What is Tahini section

Hi!

Welcome to WPML support!

Could you try the following in order to translate the links please?
- Go to WPML 0> Settings -> Translate Link Targets and click the button 'Scan now and adjust links'

- Then go to Settings -> Permalinks and click to resave the permalinks in order to avoid any page/post not found issue.

Please let me know if this fix your issue.

Kind regards,

Paola

Hi Paola,

I have done this many times. I redid it. When I go to this recipe in english, and click on the hyperlink in the text, I still end up on the french link.

Ex: go here and click on the link on the word ''here'' under What is Tahini section

Hi Paola,

no it is not like that systematically. For example, on my home page, if you click on the button ''Eat'', it works and leads to english recipes. But if you click on the button ''Shop'', it leads to the french shop instead on the english one.

See for yourself here: hidden link

You ask this: Could you tell me please if happen with all the links of the website or only with specific ones? How do you make this links, they are specific block?

Did you take a look at my example? As you can see, it's just a normal hyperlink on a word that leads to another page of my site. I mostly see this problem in my recipes. But not always

Ex. on of a link that was correctly translated: in the text, see ''discover nutritionnal yeast'' hidden link

Hi,

Thank you for the information.

In order to debug more the issue, could you give access to you site please?

I have just checked the necessary boxes so you can add the credentials in a secure and private way.

That way only the two of us can observe them.

I suggest you create a temporary user, so you can delete it after closing the ticket.

Kind regards,

Paola

Hi,

Congratulations for your site, it is really good!

Don't worry I didn't do anything that affect your SEO.

For those links that are not translated automatically. Try to search for them in the translator editor so you can add your translations.

Please see attached image.

Kind regards,

Paola

Thank you!

I don't see any url to modify when I reach the translation of your homepage. I have seen the orange url rectangle before, but I don't see it now. I don't see the same thing that you are showing me in your screen capture.

I don't see the url to translate in this recipe either:

oh it worked
how do I know what to write exactly in ''search source''?

So everytime I translate content, I have to translate all urls manually?

Hi,

I have create a test page with two links, one is translated and the other no

As you are production site I can't continue with the debugging. It would be great if I can have access to a staging site or if you don't have one and it is ok with you, we can migrate your site to our server so I can continue with the debugging without affecting your site.

Please let me know which option is best for you to continue with the debugging.

Kind regards,

Paola

ok thank you
I do not have the skills to create a staging and yes I do operate my site and an online shop. Therefore, duplicating the site would be ideal!
