I am trying to:
Quick edit a post from the post listing in the administration area

URL of (my) website where problem appears:
local install and various other websites with WPML

I expected to see:
Regular fields in the edit form

Instead, I got:
Various empty fields with no name and description (see the attached screenshot)

Steps to duplicate the issue:
Don't know exactly

Do you know what can be the reason I see those fields? In many projects I can see this and the only common plugin in these project seems to be WPML.

Hello, Régis.

That is weird.
When I check it on my local server, I do not see this issue.
To determine if WPML is in charge for this could you please deactivate WPML temporarily on one of the sites that this problem is happening and see if it persists?

I look forward to your reply!

you're right, I've checked again and the other one plugin in common for those websites was wp-filebase. Indeed, when i deactive filebase, these fields disappear.
Sorry and thanks for your reply 😉
