I am trying to:
Set all ACF to Translatable.

If I want to Change the settings on WPML > Settings, it doesn't save.

If I change it in ACF / Custom Fields, it does save.
But if I try to update an existing posts, it looses the settings again.

I tried changing the settings of the fields and they are saved correctly.

Could you give a couple of fields you're having issues with and what exactly did you do to save them?

Everything seems to work well on the cloned environment indeed. On the original environment the errors still persists.

I am using the follwing URL: hidden link.

See: hidden link. This error doesn't occur on the cloned environment.

Can you see by any chance in the debug report what could be wrong with e.g. our server settings?

Hi Hein,

the issue happens because you are loading ALL the fields before changing the settings.
Once you do that, the required value of MaxInputVars to save the page is 5083, and you have only 1000.

Therefore, or you search for the single fields you need to change and save them separately (like I did for do_header in your site to test), or you increase the MaxInputVars value. You'll have to contact your hosting to know how to do that.

Let me know if this helps you or if you need further assistance.
