Hi and thank you for contacting WPML Support!

I will be happy to help you with this.

Can you please try the steps below and see if there is any difference?

- disable all plugins except WPML and its add-ons
- check if the issue is happening again
- if it's not, reactivate your plugins one by one, checking every time if the issue shows up again so that you can understand which plugin is causing that issue

If the issue happens even with the non-WPML plugins disabled:

- leave all the non-WPML plugins deactivated
- switch to a default theme like TwentySeventeen
- try to recreate the issue now

Please let me know how that goes.

I will be waiting for your response.

Kind regards,
Mihai Apetrei

Insert Post Ads plugin was conflicting. Returning some JS error. I deactivated this plugin to fix the issue. May be you can make this plugin compatible with it.
