I am trying to: create/edit/translate blog posts and pages
Link to a page where the issue can be seen: morningscore.io/features/ ; morningscore.io/roadmap/ ; morningscore.io/changelog/
I expected to see: 1 instance of each translation for each language (add /da/ or /de/ to any URL like morningscore.io/da/features/ or morningscore.io/de/roadmap/.
Instead, I got:
Two of our blog posts /roadmap/ + /changelog/ are randomly getting duplicate drafts every time I try to edit them for each of the versions. Besides the annoying part of having to delete the drafts every time, recently I noticed that although private, the duplicates actually take on the real link that's supposed to be live and the live version gets redirected/altered to for example /roadmap-2/ or /changelog-2/.
The same started happening to pages as well. Currently, I'm trying to edit the /features/ page. In WP's dashboard, I can see there's one published post + 1 draft (randomly created). However, when I try to edit either of them, the URL that it displays is /features-2/ and I can't seem to find the original post (which is still live on the site somehow).
Also, it seems like there are some "ghost" translations happening that overwrite something. Yesterday we made a new page called Test Links. However as you can see in wpml-weird-da-features2.png, it automatically got translated and took over /features/ duplicating the content from that page.
You can see the 3 screenshots for an example of what's happening -- I can also send more.
If needed, I can also put you through with our developer.
