Tell us what you are trying to do?

Is there any documentation that you are following?
When I am on the english page and click on the logo it goes to the dutch page
Is there a similar example that we can see?

What is the link to your site?

Hi there,

Would you please make sure that you scan the Astra and Astra Child themes using the steps below?

https://wpml.org/documentation/getting-started-guide/string-translation/finding-strings-that-dont-appear-on-the-string-translation-page/#scanning-the-theme-and-plugins

After that, please go to WPML > String Translation and search for:

hidden link

Then please translate it to the link that you want in the other language.

Thank you.

Hi there,

I'd appreciate it if you could give me the URL/User/Pass of your WordPress dashboard after you make sure that you have a backup of your website.
It is absolutely important that you give us a guarantee that you have a backup so if something happens you will have a point of restore.

Please make sure that you set the next reply to private.

Thanks.

Hi there,

I checked the website and the problem was that you added "/home" for the homepage URL in the Elementor > Theme Builder > Header.

That kind of URL can not be detected by WPML as it does not know what to add for the translation.

Instead, I used the dynamic data functionality of Elementor and added the SITE URL dynamic data.

That is actually what you add in WordPress Dashboard > Settings > General > Site URL option. ANd it will be always dynamic.

Now if you check the website and click the English flag you will see that it is switched correctly.

We answer one question per ticket to make sure that we serve you better and it is fair to our other customers.

I'd appreciate it if you can open up another ticket for the footer question.

Thank you.
