I have been using the classic editor. I changed my settings to use the advanced editor for new pages and it opened one my current "classic" pages in the Advanced editor and my content was lost. I changed my settings back to use only the classic editor, but now every time I open a page from my dashboard or browser to edit, it won't let me save any changes to the page I'm working on in French. I get the error "Updating Failed". The original page in English is fine.

I can't seem to style my pages in the Advanced Editor either.

To be honest this has been extremely frustrating. WPML crashed on my site the first time I made the change to the Advanced Editor which cost me development dollars to fix. I couldn't access any of my pages in English or French.

My entire site was translated using the classic editor. Help?

PS - I don't know what a duplicator package is below

I have WPML installed on my site and on - it's not working on either site. The first site it was installed on was .org

Welcome to the WPML support forum. I will do my best to help you to resolve these issues.

The working of WPML Advanced Translation Editor is completely different from the Classic Translation Editor. So we will lose the translation if we move from one to another. And it will not be possible to import the contents from one editor to another.

The pages like About Us, Blog etc.. is showing the translations for me in the frontend. Please check the attached images and let me know your feedback.

You are using the older version of WPML(4.2.3). Please upgrade to the latest version of WPML( after a full site backup for the better performances.

Please note, I have opened a new ticket for the WPML is not working on .org site issue. Because as per our support policies, we can only handle one issue per ticket. It will help us to serve you better and we can avoid discussing multiple problems in one ticket. I will get back to you soon on the new ticket. Please wait. Thank you for your understanding.
