I've implemented all WPML function and the site is almost finished, but I've encountered two errors. One is when I run the site through inspect element and there is the below notification popping up. What can I do about it?

hidden link

The other thing is a problem with the URL format, please see attached screenshot.

Hope you can help me fix this.

When I visit your site I currently can view the front end as expected for both default language and secondary language.

This is a common false-positive notice, and the best way to verify this is by visiting the front end.

if the front end is displaying as expected, then this is verified as false negative and you can continue using the URL Structure without problems

if you are seeing an error 500, blank page or error 503 in the front end and its resolved by changing the URL Structure then we will need to further inspect the issue.

Regarding the first issue, if possible please give me some additional information so I can better understand

Hi Bobby, thanks for clearing that up!
The other one is a notification that I receive when I open the site in Safari and use the Inspect Element option. There is a notification sign, that says this link is missing, but perhaps that is also a false positive, because it refers to the language switcher in the top menu

I have visited your front end and the switcher seems to work as expected.

Are you seeing this in the console when viewing the front end or backend?

The front end console for me is clear.

NOTE: from what you shared with me it could possibly be either a cached console warning or triggered by a 3rd party plugin, however, I am not seeing it at the moment and it should not cause any problems with how the site or WPML performs

Let me know your results, please.

Hi Bobby, I'm not seeing the notification on the front end, so I expect that it's from the back end. Will leave it at then 🙂 Thanks
